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

How long should an oil change take? Well, if you are attempting to change your oil yourself, you will want to make sure that you commit one hour. However, it can take more or less time, depending on your circumstance. For example, you need to ensure that your engine is cooled down completely. Thus, we advise not to purchase oil and change it directly after. Mornings make for the best time since your engine has time to rest overnight.

Here is what Goshen drivers will need to change your oil yourself:

  • Recommended Oil from Owner’s Manual
  • A New Oil Filter
  • A New Oil Filter Gasket
  • A Rubber Mallet
  • Proper Wrenches
  • A Jack
  • Wheel Blocks

Keep in mind that a DIY oil change tends to cost more and take more time than having it done at a service center. Find out how much an average oil change costs and let our friendly and knowledgeable technicians take this task off your hands.
