Want to learn more about Engine Oil changes?

Read our short guide with information on costs, symptoms and more.

What does engine oil do?

Engine oil is a lubricant used to reduce the friction between the moving parts of the engine as well as an aid to cooling by dissipating the heat generated.

What does an engine oil change involve?

  • The mechanic will raise the vehicle and ensure that the surrounding area is protected against any spillage
  • The mechanic will drain the oil and change the oil filter
  • Mechanic will then refill the engine with the correct grade and quantity of quality oil
  • Mechanic will run the engine and once cool, will re check the level
  • Any dashboard based oil service and quality warnings will be reset to indicate the oil service has been performed

Is it worth doing your own oil change?

Unless you are a qualified mechanic with the required skills, training and equipment to do the job, we strongly recommend an engine oil change is only carried out by a professional mechanic. ClickMechanic can help get you a vetted and local mechanic to carry out the work. Just enter your postcode and your car's registration number at the top of this page and select the work needed to get an instant fixed price up front.

What are the symptoms of bad engine oil?

Fundamentally, unless it has gone too far, the average motorist is unlikely to know there is something wrong physically with it.

There may be an oil pressure warning on the dashboard that could indicate the oil isn’t circulating as well as it should due to a blocking filter or even a failing oil pump or there may be an oil level warning, which would indicate there isn’t enough oil in the engine. However both of these warnings are not really an indicator of the actual oil quality but can alert you to potential issues.
Therefore typical symptoms are;

  • Engine oil level warning
  • Engine oil pressure warning
  • Service indicator lights
  • Oil quality warning light

How long will an engine oil change take?

An engine oil change usually takes around 1 hour, but can take less or more time. Ultimately, the time that the job will take will depend on a number of factors, like your vehicle's make and model, year, as well as other factors. Select your car at the top of this page for information on job time and cost for your vehicle through ClickMechanic.

How often should I replace the engine oil?

As oil heats up and cools down, carbonisation occurs, which is why oil turns a dark black colour. The more this occurs and the more its chemical structure is mashed during the friction process, the oil quality will fall away until it not longer provides the purpose it is used for,

This is why the manufacturers have recommended oil change frequencies, however, it is not the full story. There is also the time recommendation as well, but this is to try and ensure that regular changes are made. An engine that is used in a vehicle that sits in stationary traffic the majority of its time, but doesn’t accumulate high mileages, is still going to be running and that is of course what reduces the properties.

Can I still drive with bad engine oil?

Having the correct level and grade of engine oil is of paramount importance both for maintaining engine efficiency and performance. Driving with a bad engine oil could cause damage to the engine. If you suspect there is any issue with your engine oil or there are concerns about its age or condition, book with a professional mechanic with immediate effect to check the engine oil and replace it if necessary.

How much do oil changes typically cost?

On average an engine oil change costs around £90. Typical prices can range anywhere from £60 to £150. Ultimately, the cost of an engine oil change depends on your car and what parts your car's manufacturer recommends using for the replacement. Find out what you could save by having the engine oil changed by ClickMechanic by selecting your car at the top of this page!
