We’ve all got questions when it comes to automotive maintenance. For some of the simpler answers you need, consult our FAQs before bringing your vehicle in.
Pricing for an oil change depends on the type of oil you choose, the number of litres required for your vehicle and any discounts or specials that may be available to you. For specific pricing, please visit or contact your local service center.
A full-service oil change includes up to 5 litres of Valvoline oil, new oil filter and lubrication of chassis components according to your vehicle manufacturer’s specs. We will also check the following*:
- Fluid in Automatic Transmissions
- Power Steering Fluid
- Washer fluid
- Tire Pressure
- Air Filter
- Serpentine Belt
- Wiper Blades
- Vehicle lights
*Some service centres may include more than 5 litres of oil and may not perform the complete list of service checks.
Typically we will have you in and out of the service center in about 15 minutes after your oil change begins.
An oil change will take about 15 minutes. Some services like air filter replacement can be performed at the same time as your oil change. Other preventive maintenance services could require additional time. Some services may only require 10 minutes and others 20 minutes or more. For specific service times visit the Services section.
Type of oil needed depends upon the make and model of your vehicle and the manufacturer’s recommendation. Great Canadian Oil Change service centres always consult manufacturer recommendations when providing you with choices and recommendations for the type of oil to be used in your car.
We offer Valvoline oil in a variety of grades. Visit one of our service centres for more details. We pour only Valvoline oil – unlike many of our competitors who use different oils of varying quality. Always ask your oil change provider what brand and type of oil they are putting in your car.
