Did You Know - Changing Your Own Oil May Not Be Cheaper Than a Professional?
Some drivers prefer to change their own oil and filter and do as much of their own vehicle maintenance as possible; others opt for professional auto service. The former group often believes that it is more economical to do the work themselves and avoid the labor charges associated with professional service and repair. While this may be true to some extent, many DIYers do not factor in the costs of misdiagnosis, replacing the wrong part, and breakage. Not to mention some of the safety risks related to vehicle repairs. Even a “simple” oil change necessitates (in most cases) that a car be lifted and supported off the ground for access to the oil pan and drain plug. A professional has the equipment to do this safely. But that issue aside, there are other reasons that doing an oil change yourself might not be cheaper than having it done by a professional.
An oil change at a trusted repair shop often costs the same or less than the price you can pay for the oil and filter if you buy them yourself. Since repair shops buy in bulk and usually have discounts with suppliers, material costs are lower. And when you buy that expensive oil, you still need to figure in your own labor time. It just does not pay to do it yourself these days. But there are more reasons to go to the pros. In addition to changing your oil, a technician at a repair shop can inspect the suspension and drivetrain. It is difficult to check out the underbody in your driveway the same way a mechanic might on a hoist. And the repair shop can provide other inspection and maintenance services at the same time: fluid checks, brake system evaluation, and tire rotation to name a few. It pays to have a professional look over your car periodically and to have a repair shop make recommendations related to your vehicle’s maintenance schedule. Read more here...
