How Long Does an Oil Change Take?

Changing a car's oil

When you bring your car to Honda of Kirkland for oil change service, you can count on our skilled technicians to get you back on the road in Redmond within the hour. You can also perform an oil change at home if you have the right tools — although you can expect it to take a bit longer.

So how long does an oil change take if you do it yourself at home? That depends on your level of experience in auto maintenance. Read on for an overview of the tools you’ll need to perform an oil change yourself, and where to bring your car for professional oil change service.


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

If you’re planning to perform an oil change at home for the first time, it’s important to properly prepare and set aside enough time — about 2 hours — so that you won’t be rushed. Cut down on time by gathering all the required tools and supplies before getting started. Here’s everything you’ll need:

  • Car jack
  • Wheel blocks
  • Fresh engine oil
  • New oil filter
  • Rubber mallet
  • New oil filter gasket
  • Correctly sized wrenches

Note: Some vehicles require synthetic oil. Remember to check your owner’s manual before you buy supplies to be sure you have the right engine oil for your Honda model.
