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

If you are looking to perform oil changes yourself, then the amount of time it can take can vary. Usually it will take about an hour, but it can take longer so you might want to budget a little more time just in case. When you choose to change oil yourself, you have consider parts like new oil, a new oil filter, new oil filter gasket, correctly sized wrenches, rubber mallets, jacks, and wheel blocks. It can take less time and is more affordable ultimately to turn to DeNooyer Ford near Schoolcraft. 

More Oil Change Information

If it’s time to get an oil change, be sure to keep the following points in mind: 

  • Conventional wisdom tells us that you should get an oil change every 3,000 miles, but usually new vehicles need oil changes ever 5,000 to 7,500 miles. In fact some vehicles can go between 10,000 miles between oil changes. Consult your owner’s manual for specific change intervals. 
  • Our service specials provide Three Rivers drivers with oil change coupons and other discounts. 
  • Make sure to check out our synthetic or conventional oil options, and check out the owner’s manual on which oil option you use.
