How Long Does an Oil Change Take If I Do It Myself?

The amount of time it takes to perform your oil change at home will really depend on you. Ideally, you should plan on at least an hour, but it could be more or less than that depending on your experience and other factors. You’ll need to be sure you have the following: new oil, a new oil filter, a new oil filter gasket, a rubber mallet, correctly sized wrenches, a jack, and wheel blocks. It often is more efficient for your budget and timing to rely on a dealership like Landers Dodge Chrysler Jeep RAM when it’s time to replace your vehicle’s oil!

Average Oil Change Time: Other Considerations

If it’s oil change time, you’ll want to consider a few different things:

  • It used to be said that you should get an oil change every 3,000 miles. These days, new vehicles need oil changes every 5,000 – 7,500 miles. A newer model can even last up to 10,000 miles between oil changes. Confirm the details on your owner’s manual for a specific oil change interval.
  • Be sure to browse our service specials page, which frequently offers oil change coupons and other discounted services.
  • You’ll want to confirm whether your vehicle requires synthetic or conventional oil. Synthetic oil typically costs more, but it won’t affect the time required for an oil change.
