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

If you are a DIY Hendersonville driver, then you are probably wondering, “How long does an oil change take if I do it myself?” You should set aside at least an hour out of your schedule for an oil change. The material you will need are as follows: 

  • New oil
  • New oil filter,
  • New oil filter gasket
  • A rubber mallet, 
  • Correctly-sized wrenches
  • A jack
  • Wheel blocks. 

How Long Should an Oil Change Take: Pro Trips

There are some more factors to keep in mind when getting your oil changed: 

  • There used to be a common misconception that you should get an oil change every 3,000 miles — but now it is recommended that you do so every 5,000 – 7,500 miles. Check your owner’s manual for more information.
  • Take advantage of our service specials to receive offers on oil change coupons and other discounted services. This will save drivers who regularly service their vehicles a significant amount of money and reduce their overall cost of ownership.
  • Check if your vehicle requires synthetic or conventional oil. Your owner’s manual will have that information. Synthetic oil is usually more expensive, but it does not take any longer to change.
