Oil Change Service

Engine oil is the lifeblood of the engine. All internal, moving components of the motor have to be lubricated by the engine oil. Insufficient lubrication may cause the components to wear out quicker and finally cause engine failure. The oil filter keeps the oil clean and free from debris. If the filter isn’t replaced on a regular basis, it is going to get clogged and won’t have the ability to pass oil to the motor.

Fresh engine oil is the color of amber but with time it can turn black and in several cases, it can even get gritty as it dissolves the dirt. Frequent engine oil changes replace the oil and keep the engine clean. In some cases, there is a residual build up on the engine and an engine oil flushes required.

What is an engine oil change ?

An engine oil change refers to removing oil from the vehicle and replacing it with fresh oil. If an engine oil flush is being performed, the engine oil change is carried out at the same time. Once the old oil is taken out, chemicals are added into the engine which is left idle for a few minutes to ensure the cleaning agents reach all the spots where oil normally goes. Clean oil is then poured in once the chemicals are drained.

How much does an Oil Change cost?

Our oil change service comes with regular car maintenance. Look up the recommended service schedule for your vehicle and choose from one of the four maintenance packages below.

Our recommendation:

It is best to follow the maintenance schedule provided by the manufacturer. A good rule of thumb is replacing the oil and filter every 8,000 km or six months.

What are the common symptoms indicating you need an oil change?

The exact rule of thumb on this varies, but you should change your car oil at least every 6 months or every 7,500km

  • The amount of time since your last oil change exceeds the recommended miles.
  • You notice fluids on your driveway.
  • You do a lot of driving.
  • You have your car unused for months.
  • The Maintenance light is on.

How important is this service?

Regular oil changes are generally considered the most important maintenance service for your car. Do not drive your car with low engine oil. It can severely damage the engine. To avoid severe engine damage, this simple and inexpensive service should be regularly scheduled.

Jack was fantastic! Very knowledgeable, professional, and friendly. He answered all my questions and kept me informed on every step. Instamek is a great service, it's so nice having the mechanic come to you and do everything on the spot. We had a simple battery replacement, but were unsure if it might be another issue. Jack diagnosed the problem, had a part delivered and was done and on his way in about an hour and a half. All I had to do was hand him the keys and comfortably wait in my own home. Rates are very reasonable and they tell you the cost of everything before you buy, and include a one year warranty on their parts and service. They also offer a premium subscription which includes discounts on maintenance and repairs (including this one) and two free inspections a year. Opted in, as it basically pays for itself just in what you save on oil changes. Instamek is the future of vehicle service. 10/10 would recommend.

Grant did a pre-purchase inspection for me on an '06 Ford Focus. He was knowledgeable, friendly, and totally picked up on things I had missed during my own inspection. He had the tools on hand to check things that I could not check on my own, and gave me a good idea of the necessary repairs and maintenance the vehicle needed to be in shape. Would recommend, especially for folks not confident in their own ability to inspect a vehicle.

Extremely professional and efficient. Jack was my mechanic helping me out with a huge oil leak and he was able to fix the entire issue in an afternoon. Will absolutely be returning to him for any future issues. Fantastic job!

I used instaMek to do pre purchase inspection on a vehicle and this service was invaluable. I was able to get a technician out to the location of the vehicle next day and the assessment was very thorough and honest. It is really valuable to have an objective assessment like this, especially when I have limited experience with car maintenance. The technician was professional and didn't talk down to me despite my limited experience. I didn't end up purchasing the vehicle and I think this pre-check probably saved me hundreds of dollars if not more. Definitely will use again in the future now that I know about it!!!

Great team- very helpful, very honest, very responsive! 10/10 would recommend for maintenance, fixes, advice. Always gives you a confirmed quote before work and never makes changes without your explicit approval, and never upsells unnecessary ‘fixes’.

We are open from 8am - 6pm
