Probably hasn't. If Jiffy Lube knew a way to make it easy to change, believe me, they would be advertising that like crazy. Laughing I need to change mine, too. If nothing else, it at least keeps some water that makes it past the diverter from hitting the fan.

I didn't mind going to Jiffy Lube, but it was the sales tactics that always bothered me. I can go to to other shops and tell them I want an oil change. Unless I ask them to look for something else, they'll just change the oil.

last time i went to a jiffy lube they tried to charge me $60 for an oil change when the price on the wall was clearly $29.95 i think they just try to hustle you out of money whenever they can lol. i change my own oil these days and get more satisfaction from doing it myself. some of those oil change places are great but i only go if i dont have the time to do it myself

Is Jiffy Lube that bad? It's like a five minute job. Laughing I have heard the horror stories though. I've never went too them myself.

Yes, they are that bad. They will bring your your air filter to show you how "dirty" it is, then take you out to your car and give you the hard sell on all the fluids they are willing to replace. If you wipers look a little bit dirty, they'll try to sell you on replacing them. Got a bulb out? They'll sell you one for twice the price of the Car parts store to replace it. I've had better luck with oil changes at shops going to ones that don't specialize in them. You ask for an oil change, they'll just change the oil.

Honestly, that doesn't look too bad. Mine usually looks like that after about 18 months of use.

I stopped going to any oil change places. I used to go to the quick lube type places but had some bad experiences. Started going to dealership and had even worse experineces! My woman's 09 malibu we always took to the dealership, one time we start to drive away and the check engine light was on so we turned around and had to wait an hour for them to tell us the o2 sensor was bad, the car only had something like 20,000 miles and a year and a half old. Was way to much of a coincidence to just happen to go out right after an oil change. The next oil change I did it myself and the o2 sensor is right under the oil filter, they obviously spilled or hit the o2 sensor but instead of just saying sorry and fixing it they said there was no way they could have done it and replaced it under warranty.

I went out and bought a new set of rhino ramps from advance auto, after the discount code they are only 30 bucks to replace my old red ramps I hadn't used in forever because I just took the cars to dealership since they were pretty cheap.. Now I buy good oil when it's on sale and stock up. Get my wix filters(napa gold) from fleetfilter.com for about 3 bucks a peice.

Plus all those shops use bulk oil, the cheapest stuff they can buy. I can find decent oil on sale from different places for around 2 bucks a quart. So my oil changes cost about 14 bucks and I know it's getting done right. Won't have to worry about some one cranking down the drain bolt and stripping the threads.

There's a Quaker state quick lube here in town.

Pulled the car in Told them I wanted just the standard oil change. I poke my head out the waiting room and say can you tape up that harness under the car..

Some of you know the older Imps, harness under the car that the tape unravels and hangs down.

I told him there's some tape in the cup holder. he said sure we can do that for you.
The 19.99 oil change special turned into a little of 70 dollars.. I told him that isn't right. He tried to explain to me that its was 20 for the oil change and 50 for the "wire repair"
After a 5 minute argument and 3 other people walking in then back out. I walked away only paying the 20 dollar oil change...

couple days later I was under the car and well they did exactly like I said.. Literary like I said. "tape it up" He took my tape and taped it to the oil pan. Not wrapping the wire loom closed. .. Oh he also kept my black tape......

I rarely take my car into any shop. This was one of those times, where I just didn't have any time to do ti.
