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

  • new oil
  • a new oil filter
  • a new oil filter gasket
  • a rubber mallet
  • correctly sized wrenches
  • a jack
  • wheel blocks

Helpful Oil Change Information

Here are some things to keep in mind before an oil change:

  • The old oil change rule that you needed an oil change every 3,000 miles no longer applies to newer vehicles. Instead, through the vehicle advancements over the years, an oil change is necessary every 5,000–7,500 miles. Check your owner’s manual for your specific oil change interval.
  • Our service specials offer a wide range of money-saving coupons, including oil changes. We update our service specials page frequently, so be sure to check the page before coming in for service.
  • Before adding any oil to your car you need to refer to your owner’s manual to see if your car, truck, or SUV uses synthetic or conventional oil. In short, synthetic oil tends to cost less but won’t affect the time it takes to change your oil.
