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

If you’re a DIY type and are planning on changing your car’s oil yourself, the amount of time it takes can vary. You should expect it to take at least an hour, but it can take more or less time than that depending on your skill level. When changing the oil yourself, you’ll need new oil, a new oil filter, a new oil filter gasket, a rubber mallet, the correct wrenches, a jack, and wheel blocks. However, you’ll find that it not only takes less time but will cost you less to have a dealership like Honda of Toms River handle your oil change. It’s also less of a hassle in general when you have our professional technicians do the job for you.

More Oil Change Information

If it’s time to get an oil change, turning to Honda of Toms River delivers the following advantages:

  • One of the benefits of our Honda Service Center vs. a local auto shop is that our experienced service team and state-of-the-art equipment allow us to work on more cars and complete your service in a more timely manner.
  • While it used to be recommended that you get an oil change every 3,000 miles, these days new vehicles usually require an oil change every 5,000 to 7,500 miles. In fact, some models can even go 10,000 miles between oil changes. Check your owner’s manual for the specific oil change interval for your vehicle.
  • You should also consult your owner’s manual to find out if synthetic or conventional oil is recommended for your vehicle. Synthetic oil often costs more, but some models require it. The type of oil used won’t have any effect on the time it takes to complete an oil change.
