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

If you’re performing an oil change for yourself, how long it takes to complete can fluctuate. You should at least give yourself an hour to complete the task, but keep in mind that it may take more or less time than what you have allotted. You will need the following supplies if you plan to do an oil change yourself: new oil, a new oil filter, a new oil filter gasket, a rubber mallet, correctly sized wrenches, a jack, and wheel blocks. Keep in mind that it can be quicker and more affordable to leave this task to the experts at Volkswagen Of Oak Lawn when it’s time to replace your vehicle’s oil — you also don’t have to worry about all of the hassles!

More Oil Change Information

Why should you let the team at Volkswagen Of Oak Lawn handle your next oil change? Keep these tips in mind:

  • Our experienced service team and state-of-the-art equipment allow us to work on more cars than a generic auto shop.
  • In the past, it was a good idea to have an oil change every 3,000 miles. However, thanks to advancements in automotive technology, new vehicles require oil changes every 5,000 – 7,500 miles. Some vehicles may be able to go 10,000 miles before an oil change is necessary. Consult your owner’s manual for recommendations from the manufacturer.
  • Our service specials page frequently offers oil change coupons and other discounted services.
  • Does your vehicle require synthetic oil? Be sure to once again take a look at your owner’s manual to see if you need synthetic or conventional motor oil. Synthetic oil is a bit more pricey, but your oil change will take the same amount of time.
