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

How long does an oil change take at home in Oklahoma City or Oklahoma City? It depends on whether or not you have experience. It’s a good idea to budget at least an hour of your time, but the service could be faster or slower depending on how things go. Plus, you may want to factor in the time that it would take to gather up your supplies! You’ll need each of the following:

  • Fresh engine oil
  • A new oil filter
  • A new oil filter gasket
  • A rubber mallet
  • Correctly-sized wrenches
  • A jack
  • Wheel blocks

You can find everything you need at our parts department, but even then, there’s still really no way to know how long an oil change should take. If you need consistency and clear expectations, it’s easier to schedule service with a team that you can trust.

More Oil Change Information

Most drivers should secure an oil change at least once every 5,000 to 7,500 miles, but you can always check your owner’s manual to be certain. It’s also important to note that you always need to use the recommended oil type for your vehicle. If you’re performing an oil change at home, check your manual to make sure that you’re using the correct variety.
