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

If you’re up to the task, you might try and change your car oil yourself at home. Depending on how comfortable and familiar you are with auto repairs, the amount of time it takes may vary. Just as the professionals do, it’s a good idea to set aside an hour or so of your time to complete your oil change. You’ll need to be sure you have everything on hand to get the job done right such as new oil, a new oil filter, a new oil filter gasket, a rubber mallet, correctly sized wrenches, a jack, and wheel blocks. For those, who don’t have all the necessary tools, you can always turn to our certified technicians at Bob Ross Buick GMC to do it for you so you’ll have more time to enjoy the day!

More Oil Change Information

Before it’s time to bring in your vehicle for a regularly scheduled oil change, here are few more details you’ll need to know:

  • Conventional wisdom used to dictate that you should get an oil change every 3,000 miles — but these days, new vehicles need oil changes every 5,000 – 7,500 miles. In fact, some models can even go 10,000 miles between oil changes. Check your owner’s manual for a specific oil change interval.
  • Our service specials page frequently offers oil change coupons and other discounted services.
  • Be sure to check and see if your vehicle requires synthetic or conventional oil. Your owner’s manual will have that information. Synthetic oil typically costs more, but it won’t affect the time required for an oil change.
