How Long Should an Oil Change Take If You Do it Yourself?

If you prefer to do your own oil change, the amount of time it takes will vary depending on your skill level, tools, and other factors, such as the number of interruptions from your kids. Changing your oil requires various tools and supplies, including new oil, an oil filter, a new oil filter gasket, a car jack, wheel blocks, and a rubber mallet. If it's your first time changing your oil, you'll want to set aside about an hour to familiarize yourself with the parts and process of an oil change. As you become more familiar with how to change your oil though, you'll be able to change your oil in about half an hour.

When you bring your vehicle in for an oil change at your local Chevy service center, it shouldn't take more than half an hour, depending on the condition of your vehicle and how many customers are there that day.
