You’ll want to set aside at least an hour of time, but it can take more or less than that. Changing oil yourself also requires supplies like oil, a new oil filter, a new oil filter gasket, a rubber mallet, correctly sized wrenches, a jack, and wheel blocks. It often both takes less time and costs less to turn to the professionals at Dover Honda when it’s time to replace your vehicle’s oil — and it’s certainly less of a headache to let us handle it!
