How Long Does an Oil Change Take?

Generally speaking, an oil change appointment shouldn’t take more than an hour, no matter where you go.

How Long Should an Oil Change Take if I Do it Myself?

Planning to change your oil at home in Petoskey? Depending on your experience with this task, the amount of time it takes can vary, but you should set aside at least one hour to get the job done.

Remember, before you start the process, you should double check that you have a proper amount of new oil, a new oil filter, and a new oil filter gasket – you’ll find all of these items at the Fernelius Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram parts department, as well as chain auto supply stores in Indian River. In order to complete the oil change, you’re also going to need a rubber mallet, proper-sized wrenches, wheel blocks, and a jack.

At the end of the day, it’s usually faster and more cost-effective to have your oil changed at a certified dealership such as Fernelius Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram. That said, if you do change your oil yourself and need advice along the way, don’t hesitate to contact us to ask!

Additional Oil Change Tips

Check out our expert tips before performing or scheduling your next oil change:

  • It used to be said that you should have an oil change every 3,000 miles, but these days, you should be able to go about 5,000 to 7,500 miles in between service. Some models may even make it to 10,000 miles before requiring a change. If you’re unsure, check your owner’s manual for an accurate number.
  • When you take advantage of the rotating service coupons at Fernelius Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, you can get your oil changes and other services at a great price.
  • Wondering if your vehicle requires synthetic oil? Check your owner’s manual to find out. Synthetic usually costs more than conventional oil, but it often lasts longer than conventional oil.
