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

How long should an oil change take? If you decide to perform an oil change yourself, the time it takes you will vary, depending on how comfortable you are performing an oil change. Set aside at least an hour for you to complete changing your oil. Before you get started, you need to have the following handy:

  • New oil
  • New oil filter
  • New oil filter gasket
  • Rubber mallet
  • Correctly sized wrenches
  • A jack
  • Wheel blocks

After you collect everything you need, it usually turns out to be less expensive to do at a dealership. Plus, you can skip the hassle of doing it at home. Take a look at our service specials for savings on routine maintenance.

More Oil Change Information

When it’s time to get your oil changed, contact our service center to schedule an appointment. Getting your car serviced at our dealership has the following benefits:

  • Our brand experts at our service center know the ins and outs of your Toyota and can better diagnose any issues if they exist. Our state-of-the-art equipment allows us to do more than the typical New Albany auto shop.
  • Older models needed an oil change every 3,000 miles, but new technology has lengthened the time you can go between oil changes. New Toyota vehicles can go as far as 5,000 miles and 7,000 miles between oil changes. Some vehicles can even stretch to 10,000 miles. Check your owner’s manual for how long your vehicle can go between oil changes and seek to learn more about how often you should change your oil.
  • Our service specials can help alleviate service costs.
  • 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 that time required for an oil change.
