How much does a basic oil and filter change cost?

An oil and filter change within Protyre’s Bronze-level basic car service costs from just £79.

This baseline price may end up being a little higher on your bill if your mechanic finds issues with your car and you choose to let them go ahead and fix the problems. In such a case, the price of parts and labour will be added to your final basic car check-up bill.

What’s the difference between basic Bronze, interim Silver and full Gold car services?

To help you understand what you get extra from our various car service packages, here are the differences between our basic (Bronze), interim (Silver) and full (Gold) services:

  • Differences with an interim Silver car service: A Silver interim car service features all the checks featured in Bronze plus the fan and alternator, belts, lighting, HT leads, driveshaft, clutch, wheel bearings, shock absorbers, suspension, brake callipers, brake shows, wheel cylinders, brake discs or drums, brake hydraulics and handbrake. TPMS valves are also checked, alongside the doors, bonnet, locks and seatbelts.
  • Differences with a full Gold car service: A Gold car service looks at all the points included in Bronze and Silver, plus the radiator, coolant hoses, expansion bottle, air filter, spark plugs, diesel plug indicator, clutch, transmission fluid, fuel cap, fuel lines, fuel filter and pollen filter.

How long does a basic car service take?

A basic car service with an oil and filter change should take between one and two hours to complete.

A few things can impact how long a basic car service takes, such as whether your car is in good or poor condition, the number of issues that are identified and whether the servicer has access to important things like your car’s locking wheel nuts. If you want any problems fixed at the garage, these will also increase the time for which your car is off the road.

Why should you get a basic car check-up and oil change service?

Getting a basic car check-up and an oil and filter change is a good idea if you need your car servicing regularly. This could be due to racking up many miles over a short space of time or driving consistently in adverse off-road or city conditions.

Basic car services are also a good choice if you simply want peace of mind and an improved drive. A Bronze service will likely help improve your car’s fuel efficiency, handling and much more – perfect if you’re behind the wheel for lots of the time and won’t settle for anything less than great motoring.
