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

How long does an oil change take if you’re performing it yourself? That depends on whether it’s your first time or your tenth time. If you’re planning on changing your oil for the first time, we recommend that Venice drivers put aside an hour.

An hour will give you time to learn how to check your oil levels, identify what kind of oil you need, and gather the following tools: new oil, a new oil filter, a new oil filter gasket, a rubber mallet, correctly sized wrenches, a jack, and wheel blocks. If you’ve already gotten these basic procedures out of the way, determining how long should an oil change take is a matter of how fast you can pour oil into your engine’s reservoir.

However, we recommend most Bradenton drivers take their cars to our garage. That’s because oil changes are so inexpensive and quick that the cost and time investment are much less of a headache than performing the change yourself.
