Time for an oil change? Learn how to do it yourself (or find the best mechanic in town)
It’s true. You can perform an oil change yourself. In fact, here’s a great how-to video.
But before blocking off a whole Saturday and getting out the car jack, think about this: if you do it yourself, you’re missing out on a great opportunity to have your mechanic spot bad gaskets, fix leaking O-rings and top off your car fluids.

Benefits of having an expert change your oil
Having someone else change your oil is just easier, faster and, in some cases, cheaper. Let’s break that down:
- Save yourself time with a quick oil change
You could take an entire Saturday to change your oil. Or, you could get it done in about 30 minutes by bringing it to our professional repair shop.Plus, our expert mechanics will be able to spot—and fix—problems with your engine, suspension and tires to prevent downtime in the future. And all that for the low price of an express oil change. Expert tip: be on the lookout for our oil change specials to save money in addition to time.
- You could potentially save money in future repairs
Think of oil change services as a way to evaluate the overall state of your car. Doing a quick oil change yourself might fix the immediate problem—replacing old oil with new—but you might not recognize worn or deteriorated gaskets, tires and filters.
We will and do. After the oil change, we’ll take a couple minutes and visually inspect your car to spot any potential problems, so we can give you an accurate idea of your car’s condition. The Telle team will never advise work that your car doesn’t actually need—we just want to make sure your car is prepared for the road ahead.
