About the Valvoline Instant Oil Change Company

Over 25 years of fast, convenient maintenance services for busy people


What makes Valvoline Instant Oil Change service centers different from all the rest? When you’re in a hurry, we’re always ready to take care of your car or truck on the spot. And, for most of our services, you can stay in your vehicle while our skilled technicians complete the work; we can have you back on the road in about 15 minutes or less when you come in for one of our full-service drive-thru oil changes.


Our history

The Valvoline Instant Oil Change business was created in 1986 with the purchase of Rapid Oil Change centers in upstate New York, the Minneapolis/St. Paul region and the Instant Oil Change and DipStick acquisitions in Lansing and Grand Rapids, Michigan.


Our success

As the second-largest quick-lube chain in the United States with 850 stores nationwide and growing, we are focused on being the quick, easy, trusted business that can help you avoid costly, inconvenient breakdowns.


As such, we are committed to delivering only those services necessary for the safety and performance of your car or truck. So when we make a recommendation, you can be sure it’s in the best interest of your vehicle, not the best interest of our wallets.
