How Long Does an Oil Change Take?

When you come to Zeigler Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram of Schaumburg for a tune-up or an oil change on your vehicle, be it a large SUV like the Jeep Grand Cherokee or a minivan like the Chrysler Pacifica, it should take less than an hour’s time. Keep reading if you want to learn how long it should take to perform an oil change yourself, along with some helpful tips on how to do so. But if you’d rather have someone with more experience perform your oil change, you can contact us and schedule a service appointment with our service department online, and can get back onto Arlington Heights’s streets in no time.

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

If you don’t mind letting your hands get a little dirty and want to become more intimate with your vehicle, you can opt to change the oil yourself, although the amount of time it takes will likely vary based on your own experience. Performing an oil change yourself could take about an hour to do correctly, but depending on the person can be shorter or longer. Before you even think about beginning an oil change on your car, however, you’ll need these items:

  • The right kind of replacement oil for your car
  • A replacement oil filter and oil filter gasket
  • A rubber mallet
  • Wrenches to fit your vehicle
  • A carjack
  • Wheel blocks

Performing an oil change yourself can be cheaper if you already have all the tools you need, but bringing your car in for the same job at Zeigler Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram of Schaumburg will obviously be easier on you.
