My wife’s Toyota Camry is approaching the 25,000 km mark so it’s time to schedule a routine engine oil change as recommended in the car manual. We make a point of visiting Jiffy Lube every 5,000 km for an oil change for this particular vehicle since it uses conventional engine oil.

So what is a conventional engine oil and how much does it cost at Jiffy Lube?

I’ll explain in this post.

Why Choose Conventional Engine Oil?

Depending on the type and model of your car and the specifications indicated on the car manual, conventional engine oil is suitable for most cars these days. It is the most utilized engine oil and here are the reasons:

More Affordable

Choosing conventional oil over synthetic can save you money. Synthetic oils often cost double the price of conventional oils per quart even from the same brand. If you stick to a regular oil change routine and don’t push your car to its limits, spending extra on synthetic oil might just be a waste of money.

Widely Available

Conventional oil is easy to find on store shelves and is also always available at Jiffy Lube so you don’t have to worry about it being out of stock.

Ideal for Older Engines

There’s a misconception that synthetic oil can cause leaks in older engines. While this was true in the past, advancements in oil technology have largely addressed this issue. However, it’s still not recommended to use synthetic oil in engines with around 75,000 miles or more. Conventional oil’s slower flow provides better lubrication for aging engines, reducing the risk of wear on internal parts.

It’s Likely What You’re Using Now

Unless you drive a high-performance car or operate in extreme conditions, synthetic oil isn’t necessary.

Conventional Oil Change Price at Jiffy Lube

The price of a conventional engine oil varies depending on the choice of oil, the type of your car, the amount of oil to be used, and the level of difficulty in extracting/refilling the engine oil in your car.

At Jiffy Lube, you’ll likely be given three options if you go with conventional engine oil.

  • Pennzoil Conventional Engine Oil priced at $44.99 with 5W-30 & 10W-30 oil specifications
  • Formula Shell Conventional priced at $44.99 with 5W-20 oil specifications
  • Shell Rotella Triple Protection priced at $69.99 with 15W-40 oil specifications

What’s Included in Jiffy Lube’s Conventional Oil Change

The Jiffy Lube technicians will thoroughly check your car and prepare it for the engine oil change. They will determine the choice of engine oil and oil filter for your car. Once the old engine oil is properly drained, the technicians will pour the fresh engine oil to keep your car running smoothly and safely.

At Jiffy Lube, technicians are very transparent and committed to their tasks. They also deliver the best service, including the cleaning of your exterior windows and vacuuming of your interior floors.

They will do a meticulous inspection of car key components like antifreeze/coolant reservoir and its levels, engine air filtration system, belts, brake fluid and its level, wiper blades, exterior lights and lubrication of the chassis when applicable

Jiffy Lube also keeps track of your vehicle’s service history and then schedule your next visit for an engine oil change.

How Long Does an Oil Change Take?

An oil change usually doesn’t take long, often between 20 to 45 minutes as long as you stick to your vehicle’s routine maintenance. How it works is that the technician will:

  • Open the car’s oil drain plug.
  • Drain the old, dirty oil from the engine.
  • Remove the old oil filter and replace it with a new one.
  • Refill the engine with fresh oil and check the oil level.

Gravity plays a significant role in the process, especially in draining the oil so most of the time spent during an oil change is in waiting for the oil to drain.

The technician may also take a few minutes to inspect your car’s engine to ensure everything is in good working order. So this is another 10 to 15 minutes.

Jiffy Lube Customer Reviews

Let me share some reviews from customers who have experienced getting an oil change at Jiffy Lube:

Kristen D.

Houston, TX

We have been to this location 2x now. The 1st time for an inspection, the 2nd time for an oil change. To me, an inspection and an oil change are virtually the same no matter where you go. It’s the people that make the difference.

The employees at this location have been FANTASTIC both times we went. They were different employees, so it’s not as if they recognized us from the previous visit. Not only were they all friendly, but they also were very patient and explained the whole inspection & oil change process to my very inquisitive 8 year old.

Kudos to this Jiffy Lube!!!

Came for an oil change and they added in tire rotation which was very convenient and quick. They also inspected my engine which I don’t even think about in my daily life and found battery acid coming out of the battery they cleaned it off for me and gave me some suggestions to fix it. Which I really appreciated. Sammy the store manager has great customer service talking me through everything with my car.
