How much does it cost for an oil change? On average, New Orleans and Metairie oil changes cost around $25-$50. If, however, you use synthetic oil or even a synthetic blend, this cost goes up. Of course, the cost for certain vehicles that take more oil is also higher.

It’s with that in mind that we offer you a comprehensive guide on oil change cost. We want you to be more informed about your options.

How Much Does it Cost for an Oil Change?

How much an oil change is in your particular case will invariably change depending on a variety of factors, including but not limited to:

  • Using Synthetic vs. Conventional Oil: Synthetic oil is generally more expensive than conventional oil, with it costing around $20 more on average. Thus, a synthetic oil change will often cost between $45-$70. But the extra cost is well worth it. Why? Synthetic oil was designed for high-performance engines, but will help any engine because it lasts longer and breaks down less quickly. It also has better lubricative properties than conventional oil. Some cars actually require synthetic oil, so you should be sure to investigate if that’s the case for you by checking our owner’s manual or consulting our service team.
  • Using a Synthetic Blend: Choosing a synthetic oil blend is a great way to improve your vehicle’s performance, protect your engine, and utilize a higher-quality oil for less than the cost of full synthetic oil. It should only be used in vehicles that don’t require full synthetic oil, though.
  • Choosing a Dealer Service Department: It’s no secret that dealer service departmentsoften charge little more than the cost of the oil and labor. Why? Oil changes are so important, and we want Slidell and Covington customers to have access to the best of the best when it comes to these crucial maintenance tasks.
  • Driving a Vehicle With Complementary Maintenance: If you drive a newer vehicle that’s in-warranty, the warranty coverage may even include complimentary routine maintenance for a pre-set period of time!

Looking to diagnose or repair other issues? Oil changes are a great time to do that. This is especially true for tire rotations, which often can be done in conjunction with oil changes!
