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

The amount of time you spend changing your own oil can vary. Ballpark an hour, but make sure you’re prepared to spend more time carrying out that maintenance yourself. To perform the work successfully, you’ll need fresh oil, a new oil filter and gasket, a rubber mallet, properly-sized wrenches, a jack, and wheel blocks. Once all of these factors are accounted for, having your oil changed by a licensed mechanic or dealership like Bernard's Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram often costs less, even if you decided to purchase your vehicle from across state lines, both in terms of time and expense. And it’s certainly less of a headache to hand the work off.

More Oil Change Information

Turning your oil change over to us delivers a number of benefits:

  • State-of-the-art equipment allows us to work on more cars than a generic auto shop, and reduce wait times.
  • “Every 3,000 miles” used to be the cycle on which every driver was told to change their oil. But now, new vehicles only need their oil changed every 5,000-7,500 miles. Some can even go 10,000 miles between oil changes. Bringing your car to us for service means you’re kept abreast of these updates so you’re only spending as much as you have to.
  • Dealers like us offer service specials frequently, along with other discounted services that can save you even more than you expect.
  • We know best what kind of oil you should be using in your vehicle, whether it’s conventional, synthetic, or a blend. Your owner’s manual will have that information, but our experience and market information means we’re already on top of it.
  • With no appointment necessary, our Mopar® Express Lane has a dedicated service bay for quick oil changes and vehicle checkups. Your time is important, and our facilities get you back on the road quickly. Mopar® Express Lane service is available for most makes and models.
