Oil Change
In most cases, you can expect an oil change to take less than an hour. In fact, our Express Lane Service ensures you get back on the road quickly If you’d like to know how long it will take, contact us for more specific timing.

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

The time it takes to change oil yourself can vary depending on your skill level and the type of vehicle you have. Plan on it taking more than an hour if it’s your first oil change. You’ll want to pull together your tools and supplies ahead of time:

  • New Mopar Oil Filter
  • New Synthetic or Conventional Oil
  • Rubber Mallet
  • Wrench Set
  • Jack
  • Wheel Blocks
  • Oil Pan

While changing your oil yourself often costs less than going to a dealership, the time and cost in tools makes it easier to turn to Buchanan Auto Park, Inc. near Hagerstown for your next oil change.
