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

If you enjoy DIY projects around Walnut Creek and are curious how long an oil change should take if you do it yourself, it’s hard to say. The amount of time it takes will vary depending on your skill level and other factors. You should budget at least an hour, or more time if you’ve never performed the service before. Don’t forget that changing the oil yourself also requires replacement oil, a new oil filter, a filter gasket, rubber mallet, various wrenches, a jack, and wheel blocks. 

More Oil Change Information

If your INFINITI needs an oil change, keep the following points in mind: 

  • It used to be that you should get an oil change every 3,000 miles, but these days, new vehicles can go 5,000 – 7,500 miles between oil changes. Some cars can even go up to 10,000 miles between oil changes. Always check your owner’s manual for specific oil change recommendations for your particular make and model.
  • The INFINITI of San Jose service specials frequently feature oil change coupons and other discounted services to save you money on your Pleasanton drives.
  • Check to see if your vehicle requires synthetic or conventional oil. Most luxury cars and high-performance vehicles require synthetic oil. Your owner’s manual will tell you. Synthetic oil costs more, but it won’t affect the time it takes for an oil change.
