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

So, how long does an oil change take if you’re completing the service task at home? If you’re performing an oil change at home in Saco, the amount of time it takes may vary. 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!
