How Long Should a Synthetic Motor Oil Replacement Take If I Do It Myself?

If you are ready to change your oil yourself, the amount of time it should take will depend on whether or not you have the right equipment. Even if you do have everything you need on hand, you will want to schedule at least an hour of your time–more, if you’ve never performed an oil change before. Here is what you need to change your oil yourself:

  • Fresh, OEM-approved oil
  • A new oil filter
  • A new oil filter gasket
  • A rubber mallet
  • Correctly sized wrenches
  • A jack
  • Wheel blocks

It is likely to cost you less and take less time if you have your oil change done at a dealership. Of course, if you’re sure that you want to tackle your next oil change at home in Cherry Hill or Sicklerville, you can pick up everything you need at our parts department

More Oil Change Information

If your vehicle requires an oil change, here is what you need to know:

  • Newer cars can go longer without an oil change. You can drive 5,000-7,000 miles before needing one. However, if your vehicle is older, you should stick to the 3,000-mile rule or refer to your owner’s manual.
  • Always refer to your owner’s manual or contact our service department if you are not sure about your vehicle’s oil.
  • When you schedule an oil change at Nissan of Turnersville, we’ll perform a multi-point inspection as part of your visit–and we’ll still get you out in around an hour or less.
