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

If you’re not interested in waiting at the dealership or service center for a technician to change your vehicle’s oil, you can change your oil at home in Manchester. When you do this, though, it can take over an hour depending on how many times you’ve done this before. You’ll also save more going to the dealership vs. doing it yourself as you’ll have to buy new oil, a new filter, new oil gasket, wheel blocks, a jack, correctly sized wrenches, and rubber mallet. You’ll save more time and money scheduling an appointment, but you always have the option to try it on your own.

More Oil Change Information

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

  • Conventional wisdom used to dictate that you should get an oil change every 3,000 miles — but these days, new vehicles need oil changes every 5,000 – 7,500 miles. In fact, some models can even go 10,000 miles between oil changes. Check your owner’s manual for a specific oil change interval.
  • Our service specials page frequently offers oil change coupons and other discounted services.
  • Be sure to check and see if your vehicle requires synthetic or conventional oil. Your owner’s manual will have that information. Synthetic oil typically costs more, but it won’t affect the time required for an oil change.
