How often should I get an oil change?
How often you change the oil in your car really depends on 2 factors:
- The vehicle you own
- The type of oil used during your last oil change
Fully synthetic oil allow you to drive longer while tradition oil gives you less time between changes.
Most vehicles require an oil change after driving 3,000 to 5,000 miles, but check your owner’s manual to be sure. Stick to the recommended schedule when you first purchase your vehicle, then talk to your Fast Lane mechanic to determine if more frequent changes are necessary.
What’s included in a full service oil change?
We offer the best comprehensive oil change in Tigard. At Fast Lane Oil Change, every oil change includes:
- Up to 5 quarts of conventional oil (for most vehicles)

How long does an oil change take?
At Fast Lane Oil Change, we provide oil change quality and efficiency. We strive to complete an oil change in as little as 15 minutes! However, vehicle service time increases depending on the amount of additional service items purchased (ie. transmission flush, radiator flush, etc.)
