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

What about if you’re a DIYer? This will depend on how familiar you are with oil changes. If you’re asking “How long does an oil change take if I do it myself in Oak Lawn?” chances are you’ve just started learning how to do the task yourself. Budget for at least an hour, but keep in mind that it can take more or less than that. 

When you’re changing the oil yourself, you’ll also need some materials, such as new oil, a new oil filter, a new oil filter gasket, a rubber mallet, correctly sized wrenches, a jack, and wheel blocks. However, if this sounds like too much effort for you, you’d be happy to know that it often both takes less time and costs less to turn to a dealership like Rizza Buick GMC. We will take care of the heavy lifting for you! 

More Oil Change Information

Here are other things to keep in mind regarding the oil changes your Buick, GMC vehicle need near Bolingbrook:

  • There used to be a rule of thumb that you should get an oil change every 3,000 miles — but these days, new vehicles need oil changes every 5,000 to 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. If you’re not sure, contact us. 
  • Our service specials page frequently 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.
