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

The answer to “How long should an oil change take?” is roughly an hour if you get it done professionally. However, if you plan to take on this service at your Spokane Valley garage, then it will vary depending on your experience. You should set at least one hour aside, but feel free to take as much as time you’d like to ensure you’re doing a proper job! Gather new oil, a new oil filter, a new oil filter gasket, a rubber mallet, correctly sized wrenches, a jack, and wheel blocks before you get started. If you end up deciding it’s best left to the pros, get certified oil changes at Camp Chevrolet and we can get it done under the average oil change time! 

More Oil Change Information

How long does an oil change take isn’t the information you’ll need to be aware of about this car maintenance service. Here are some other pointers to keep in mind:

  • You’ve probably heard of the rule to get an oil change every 3,000 miles. However, for most new models nowadays, you can get one every 5,000 to 7,500 miles instead! Some even go up to 10,000 miles per oil change, so always take a look at your owner’s manual for the recommended frequency
  • While you’re looking at your owner’s manual, see if your model requires synthetic or conventional oil. Synthetic oil usually costs more, but it won’t affect how long does an oil change takes. 
  • While our technicians won’t take longer than the average oil change time, we also offer service offers and financing to help you save on oil changes near Post Falls.
