How Long is a DIY Oil Change?

Some drivers in Lubbock like to do their own maintenance tasks, and if you’re thinking of changing your own oil, how long does a DIY oil change take? You’ll want to make room for at least an hour of work, but if you’re new to car work, block out a little more room. You’ll also need to stock your garage with:

  • Motor oil
  • Oil filter
  • Oil filter gasket
  • Rubber mallet
  • Multiple wrenches
  • Car jack
  • Wheel blocks

If you want to save yourself the time and effort, our service department is happy to take care of the messy work for you!

Other Tips and Trick for Your Oil Change

An oil change is a straightforward process, but there are a few things to consider before your next appointment.

  • You may have heard that cars need an oil change every 3,00 miles. While that was true in the past, modern automotive technology allows cars to go further in between visits. You can plan for an oil change every 5,000 to 7,500 miles on average, but check your owner’s manual for more specific information.
  • Do you need synthetic or conventional motor oil? Some cars require synthetic oil, while others can use either. Synthetic oil is more expensive, but longer lasting. Feel free to ask our service team for advice or check your owner’s manual.
  • Our service center offers low prices on routine maintenance services every day, but you can also take a look at our rotating service specials to save even more on your next service.
