An engine oil change cost can vary anywhere between $25 and $110, depending on the type of oil.
The cost varies depending on whether your car takes normal or synthetic oil. Synthetic oil lasts longer and has additives to further protect your engine.
Regular oil changes can cost between $25 and $60. A synthetic oil change will cost between $50 and $110. Where you live, the shop you choose, and your selected oil brand will all impact these costs.
Of course, doing the oil change yourself will greatly drop the price.
