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

How long does an oil change take when Birtle drivers do it themselves? At least an hour, though it can be more or less depending upon how familiar you are with the process and whether you have all the tools you need. For the record, you’ll need to buy some oil, a new oil filter, a new oil filter gasket, a rubber mallet, some correctly sized wrenches, wheel blocks, and a jack. To be honest, it’s probably going to cost less time and money to just take your car into our dealership.

More Oil Change Information

Here are few general facts that are important to know when it comes to oil changes:

  • If your car was built within the past 20 years, get an oil change every 8,000 – 12,000 km. Some cars will need to be changed more frequently, and some, less. For specifics, check your owner’s manual.
  • Some vehicles may require synthetic oil, which often last longer than conventional oil. In fact, some synthetic oils can take your car as far as 24,000 km. Be sure to check your owner’s manual to find out what your vehicle needs.
