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

If you are handling the oil change yourself, the amount of time to complete will vary. However, it’s recommended to budget in at least an hour, but, like with any at-home service, it can take more or less than that. Changing oil yourself also requires new oil, a new oil filter, a new oil filter gasket, a rubber mallet, correctly sized wrenches, a jack, and wheel blocks. In most cases, it’s more affordable to visit our Henderson service center for the oil change – it’s also less of a headache to let our team handle it!

More Oil Change Information

If it’s time to get an oil change, visit Findlay Toyota and enjoy these benefits:

  • Our experienced service team and state-of-the-art equipment allow us to work on more cars than a smaller auto shop.
  • 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 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.
