How Long Should an Oil Change Take at Home?

How long should an oil change take if you’re endeavoring to do it yourself at home in Glen Allen? If you’re new to performing this service on your own, it may take a little longer, so you should give yourself at least an hour to get the job done. Remember, when changing your oil you will need the following tools: fresh engine oil, a new oil filter, a new oil filter gasket, a rubber mallet, wrenches of the proper size, a jack, and wheel blocks. When you consider all of this equipment, it may be less costly and less time consuming to have your oil changed at a dealership service center.

Additional Oil Change Tips

Your vehicle needs clean oil to run safely and efficiently, so it’s important that you don’t skip this service, even when life is hectic. Review the tips below to learn more about oil changes:

  • In years past, drivers were told to change their oil every 3,000 miles. These days, you should only need an oil change every 5,000 to 7,500 miles. Some vehicles may even be able to go up to 10,000 miles between oil changes! This makes it far more convenient to maintain your vehicle. If you’re unsure of your car’s recommended oil change interval, you can find this information in your owner’s manual.
  • The cost of an oil change can vary based on oil type, vehicle type, and more, but you can always find a budget-friendly price in our service specials.
  • Do you know if your vehicle takes synthetic or conventional oil? Again, your owner’s manual will have this information. Some drivers prefer synthetic oil because it offers better performance and lasts longer than conventional oil, but it costs a little more.
