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

How long should an oil change take if you’re changing your own oil? It varies, but you’ll want to give yourself at least an hour, and you’ll want to ensure that you have all of the tools necessary to perform the task correctly. That means you’ll need new oil that’s recommended for your vehicle, a new oil filter that fits your vehicle, a new oil gasket, and the correct tools for the job. These often involve a rubber mallet, the correct-sized wrenches, a jack, and wheel blocks. 

Depending on the amount of space you have and the tools available to you, it’s often more convenient for many Boynton Beach drivers to schedule service at a dealership like Kia Delray to ensure that your oil is changed correctly and efficiently. We have all the tools required to perform quick and easy oil changes on your valued vehicle!

More Helpful Oil Change Tips

Here’s some information to keep in mind when thinking about your next oil change in Delray Beach: 

  • Newer vehicles need oil changes approximately every 5,000-7,500 miles nowadays. It used to be recommended that you schedule an oil change every 3,000 miles, but some modern models can even go 10,000 miles between oil changes. Always check your owner’s manual for specific information.
  • Utilizing our service specials is a great way to save money while giving your vehicle the service it requires to continue running at its best.
  • Does your vehicle require synthetic oil or conventional oil? Always check your owner’s manual for specific oil requirements, especially if you’re changing your own oil. Synthetic oil usually costs more, but it doesn’t affect the time it takes for an oil change. And if your owner’s manual says that your vehicle needs synthetic oil, always be sure to use synthetic oil to avoid any potential damage or performance issues.
