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

While changing your oil yourself isn’t an overly complicated procedure, the time it takes can vary depending on your skill level. We recommend budgeting at least an hour, but it can take more or less than that. You will also need to make sure you have everything you need to do an oil change at home. The basics required include:

  • Oil
  • A new oil filter
  • Anew oil filter gasket
  • A rubber mallet
  • Correctly sized wrenches
  • A jack
  • Wheel blocks.

Coppell drivers will find it often takes less time and costs less to turn to a dealership like Lone Star Toyota of Lewisville when it’s time to replace your vehicle’s oil.
