brought my own parts; eo, eo filter,fan belts 2 pcs, spark plugs,atf oil; RM 100 + 6% gst = 106 for labour.  Went again same shop, bought own cam cover gasket, labour RM 50 + gst = rm 53. shop in semenyih town . I think very expensive . I think next time revert back to workshops in subang jaya near i live, where i thought labor could b even more expensive, but on second thought probably may not

What is keeping me from doing my own oil change is where to dispose the oil, I know you can ask workshops but most here are like super lansi type , do t want to bother asking them at all

Just went to my former workshop located inside Shell Usj 6.
bought my own petronas oil.
the moment i brought down my oil can, the tauke lamented 2 points

1) you bring own oil? i charge you rm 25
2) you bought petronas oil. actually we dont allow but this time we allow you.

and i am his regular customer. poor customer experience.

Mind sharing which shop, Lee Tyre or the other one ?

does the mechanic use vacuum suction to draw the oil out via the dipstick..
or he just jack up the car and unscrew the plug?

if just unscrew the drain plug then labour cost damn expensive liao.

To me, drain plug method works best. I don't fancy the vacuum suction method as there may be residue oil left in the pan if the suction line isn't place correctly at the right spot.

Actually its normal if u buy ur own part to install at other shop, and they charge extra for labour (assume the shop also selling same part that u bring to)

But as a shop owner, if they wan to charge extra to customer, must talk nicely, like we as a foreman, we will tell customer nicely because u bring the part from other shop, its impossible i charge u cheap labour charge as my foreman also need to pay salary also, so we normally will charge like extra a little compare to regular

it is a fair games, u buy cheap outside and get higher labour charge from other shop, or else u buy from the shop and get cheaper labour charge, no ppl willing to do it with low cost nowaday

RM30 is overcharged already. I know cost of living is getting higher but it doesn't justify a rm30 labour charge. Where is this place? Last time I kena RM20 which was pretty ok la.

When you ask a worker at the workshop how much they charge for engine oil change (but we bring own parts) and he does not answer you straight but ask someone else, you know you are going to be slaughtered.

not really too , sometime they have to ask boss permission see how much should they charge to customer


let say normally change a part that cost RM100+RM10 labour charge (because the part maybe make more margin so labour charge they charge cheaper)

when customer bring their own part to shop asking for changing , impossible they stil charging 1 hour change the part for you with RM10 only (assume not only engine oil , maybe include filter , spark plug and other part that customer bring) , if they open high sky price , mean they not willing to help u change (maybe they found that need to take off everything just to install , if charge cheaper can't cover their expenses) , but who know if customer willing pay the price then they just have to do , if not then just leave it away bye.gif

I alternate between suction n drain plug. If buka drain plug too often, yr plug can become slightly loose in the long run..

I went to a car workshop yesterday & they charged me RM21 labour charge just to replace engine oil. 6 months ago, it was RM15.

What is the average labour cost from other workshop to replace engine oil?

Guess the next round, I will change the engine oil myself.

u FAG... even if it's RM25 give them la... some shops are still charging rm10 though... sometimes i really kecian them.. They gaji ceput some barely reach rm1k.. some it's only rm900..

there is a few things which i think it deserves to be paid better.
fill tyre hole - rm5
oil change - rm10
allignment - rm15
balancing - rm10
