Price for oil change at Mr Lube?

What are the prices at Mr Lube?

I need to have my oil changed before a trip to Kingston this weekend and need something quick!

Also, should I be changing oil every 5000km on a 97 cavalier with 200+ clicks?

Thanks

Like I said, I need something quick, and I will be close to a Mr Lube this afternoon. Drving downt o the Walmart is not an option.

And I live in Ottawa, so I'm guessing this active green ross witha coupon from TO Star is not an option.

I think they are more expensive than dealer. Since most the cheaper options is not the option, it does not really matter how much they charge, right?

There is the option of me not going and waiting till I get back to go do it at a cheaper place. If the price difference is acceptable, I will gladly take the hit to get it done today.

i guess depends on type of oil you need. i used to pay around $50 for synthetic oil and filter.

i think price starts from $30 or so..

The AG+R on Bank St. has a sign outside that says $19.95. Call them to check if they can fit you in (they can fill up quickly sometimes).

Hmm, I will give them a call and see how long it would take for them to do it.

Thanks for the heads up!

CAlled AG+R and they said 29.99 and that it would take about an hour. They use Castrol GTX...

One hour is a bit too long for me though...

If an hour is too long, DIY is the answer.

Really it is. Jack up car, buy filter, buy oil. It's about $20 anyways, and you get the satisfaction of knowing you did it right.

That sucks - maybe it's an old sign or the deal's over(I just drove by on Monday)? If they said it takes an hour, that sounds like they'll squeeze you in between jobs. Your best bet if you can't afford an hour is to drive upto a Pennzoil place then if you're not able to do a messy oil change at home! ;)

I saw some ad for a cheapy oil change somewhere in Vanier at a corner garage but I wouldn't trust it - place looked shady! ($16.95 or something like that)

But DIY would still take over an hour, if you don't have everything already in the garage (need to go to the store, buy the filter, and the oil, etc).

If OP's in a rush to get it done, Mr. Lube in Ottawa was a bit over $40 last I checked ($43 or so, IIRC). Oil Changers (http://oilchangers.ca) will run you 39.99, plus 1.99 (environmental fee), and you'll be in and out just as quickly.

Personally, I always DIY, but I'll admit it's not an option for everyone.

As for your oil change interval, you can't really go wrong with 5K intervals on that car. If you don't get it done before you leave for Kingston, I'd at least check the dipstick to make sure you're not running low.
