Oil Can Henry’s – SW Portland, OR:
I had a great experience here this morning. Super nice people, and very efficient.
At first it was a little weird to have the oil changed while I was still in the car, but it’s actually nice to be right there for them to ask questions and explain what they’re doing as they go, rather than waiting until the end.
This will be my oil change place for as long as I’m in Portland!

Milwaukie, Ore., city leaders and residents like to note that their community offers the “best of both worlds: a small town feel and easy access to Portland and regional activities and services”.
While that’s certainly true, it’s also interesting to note that this town of 20,500 people is the birthplace of several world-class brands.
For example, the Bing cherry — the most produced variety of sweet cherry in the world — was “born” in Milwaukie way back in 1875. It was created by local horticulturalist Seth Lewelling and his foreman, Ah Bing (for whom it is named).
More recently, Milwaukie has seen innovative, homegrown businesses like Bob’s Red Mill and Dark Horse Comics grow into world-renowned companies.
Oil Can Henry’s is proud to mark 25 years as a member of this remarkable community. Since opening its doors on December 14, 1990, our Oil Can Henry’s-Milwaukie service center has earned a loyal following of drivers who trust us to help their vehicles run better and last longer.
We appreciate the hard work of our friendly, trained technicians and look forward to many more years of service to local drivers.

Oil Can Henry’s – Issaquah, WA:
Exceeded my expectations.
It was nice to be able to actually see (and watch) what I was paying for (service and parts).
The attendant answered all my questions politely and thoroughly.

This was my first time using an oil change service.
I have always done my own because I’m paranoid about some buffoon stripping my oil pan drain plug. But I needed my (transmission) fluid changed and they have the equipment to completely remove the old fluid. While I was having that done, I had them do an oil change, too.
I was very pleased with the service, the courtesy of the workers and the cleanliness of the environment. I got to sit in my car and read a complimentary newspaper while they worked. Additionally, they checked all my lights and other fluids.
I think I’m done doing my own oil changes.

These guys have never let us down.\n\nThey service our ’93 work rig, ’02 daily commuter, our recently purchased ’07 commuter and my BFF’s ’04 commuter.\n\nThey communicate perfectly during the service and take all the time you need.\n\nI’ve brought two newly purchased used vehicles here for the basic oil change, asked them to be my eyes and ears and check it all over and been so thankful I did. They catch little things the dealership overlooked.\n\nThe techs are respectful and have a great sense of humor. Good old school service and knowledge you don’t come close to getting at their “giffy” or competitors. They back up their work and work hard.\n\nMuch respect. We’ll keep going here for years and cars to come.\n\n~ Jack H.\nThe Dalles, OR
Residents of West Linn, Oregon, enjoy a wonderful quality of life highlighted by beautiful scenery, diverse recreation opportunities, lush parks, and bountiful farmers markets.\n\nSo, it should come as no surprise that West Linn has twice been named to CNN/Money Magazine’s “Best Places to Live” list (2009 and 2011).\n\nWe at Oil Can Henry’s wholeheartedly agree with that assessment.\n\nFor more than 23 years, we’ve provided local drivers and visitors with quick, convenient and thorough vehicle maintenance services they can trust and, in the process, developed a special place in our hearts for West Linn.\n\nOur Willamette Drive center opened in 1991, and our 8th Court center, located just off I-205, opened seven years later, on September 8, 1998. Congratulations, and a big Thank You!, to our hard working teams at both locations. And, a tip of the Gatsby cap to our Watsonville and Whittier centers, which are also celebrating anniversaries this month:\n

Headed to the gas station? Don’t top-up your tank. It’s bad for your vehicle and your wallet.\n\nAccording to www.dailyfinance.com, “Once the pump automatically clicks off, you’re not getting much additional gas after. Instead, fuel is likely being diverted through the pump’s vapor recovery system and right back into the station’s tank. That means you’re paying for gas that you’re not getting.”\n\nLearn more here.

You could say Oil Can Henry’s and the community of Oakley, California, have grown up together.\n\nOakley, centrally located 55 miles east of San Francisco and 55 miles south of Sacramento, was incorporated just 15 years ago, on July 1, 1999.\n\nEight days later, John N. Shepanek opened his Oil Can Henry’s service center across Highway 4 in Antioch.\n\nThe Antioch center proved to be so popular with residents of Oakley and Brentwood (which borders Oakley on the south) that John opened a new center on Main Street in Oakley four years later, on August 8, 2004.\n\nToday, Oakley is a thriving, growing community of more than 37,500. And Oil Can Henry’s is providing quick, convenient and thorough oil changes and other preventive maintenance services to thousands upon thousands of happy drivers.\n\nOur congratulations to Oakley on its first 15 years, and to John and his team of friendly, trained technicians on 11 years of service in Oakley.\n\nA tip of our Gatsby caps to the 10 other Oil Can Henry’s service centers celebrating August anniversaries:\n
