Most oil changes at Chevrolet of Homewood will take less than an hour. For a better idea of wait times, contact us today. You can also schedule a service appointment online and get back on the streets of Chicago Heights quickly.

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

If you’re performing an oil change for yourself, the amount of time it takes can vary. You’ll want to budget at least an hour, but it can take more or less than that. Changing oil yourself also requires new 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 a dealership like Chevrolet of Homewood when it’s time to replace your vehicle’s oil — and it’s certainly less of a headache to let us handle it!

More Oil Change Information

If it’s time to get an oil change, turning to Chevrolet of Homewood delivers the following benefits:

  • Our experienced service team and state-of-the-art equipment allows us to work on more cars than a generic auto shop.
  • Conventional wisdom use to dictate that you should get an oil change every 3,000 miles — but these days, most new vehicles need oil changes every 5,000 – 7,500 miles. In fact, some models can even go 10,000 miles between oil changes. Check your owner’s manual for a specific oil change interval.
  • Our service specials page frequently offers oil change coupons and other discounted services.
  • Be sure to check and see if your vehicle requires synthetic or conventional oil. Your owner’s manual will have that information. Synthetic oil typically costs more, but it won’t affect that time required for an oil change.
