How Long Should an Oil Change Take When Done at Home?
Confident car owners in Ontario may wish to change their own oil at home. How long should an oil change take when you’re going the DIY route? If this is your first time changing your oil, you should give yourself at least one full hour to get the job done. If you’re familiar with the routine, you may be able to wrap it up in less time than that!
When endeavoring to change your oil at home, remember you’ll need these materials: fresh oil, a new oil filter, a new oil filter gasket, oil filter wrench, a rubber mallet, a jack, and wheel blocks. If you don’t already have this equipment, you’ll probably find that it’s more time- and cost-effective to get your oil changed at the dealership.
Additional Oil Change Tips
Whether you’re visiting a service center or changing the oil yourself, keep these tips in mind:
In years past, you may have changed your oil every 3,000 miles. But times have changed! These days, you can change your oil every 5,000 – 7,500 miles instead. Some cars can even go 10,000 miles, but you’ll definitely want to confirm the interval in your owner’s manual.

Do you know whether your car requires synthetic or conventional oil? Your owner’s manual will tell you if you’re unsure. Synthetic oil is sometimes recommended for performance vehicles and luxury models, and while it can cost more than conventional oil, it can also last longer between oil changes. The time it takes for a conventional oil change is the same as for a synthetic oil change.
