I know that it seems like a lot of time, but in the long run, it pays off. I would rather take the time to save money by avoiding the most common mistakes, instead of getting a $20 oil change for a $20 car, than take 30 minutes to get an oil change for $10.
Well, it depends how much you make, how often you wash the car, and how long it takes to do the oil change. I would personally take at least 40-45 minutes to get my oil changed, and at least 30-45 minutes for my car to be washed.
But it’s not just about money. I’ve seen oil changes that take upwards of a half hour and take an inordinate amount of soap. And when I wash my car, I don’t go near it for more than about 15 minutes. I think the best way to avoid making these costly mistakes is to think about it every time.
So to avoid those costly mistakes, I recommend checking your car’s oil at least every 2-3 months. If you don’t, you are going to be paying more for the oil than it’s worth, as well as paying for an appointment for your service. In other words, you are going to be putting money in a non-existent spot in your car.
That’s not to say you should never check, but it’s best to do it periodically. For example, I know people who have a car that leaks oil on a daily basis because they wash it every 5 months and never check it. I would also recommend that you check your car’s fluids every year too.
One way to make your car look better is to go for a tune up every year. That will reduce the wear, tear, and tear of your car, and will also improve your resale value. If you are having problems with your oil and you are wondering when you should call your car repair shop, look into making your car look as good as possible.
As you can see, this is going to be one of those topics that you can get really deep into, so we’re just going to focus on the oil change. If your car leaks oil on a daily basis, you probably haven’t checked your fluids every year. Even if you are doing that, you probably haven’t gotten your car to your dealer in a couple of months, so you know there is a problem.
A few hours is a long time to be a mechanic. If you are not a mechanic, you’re probably a customer. If you are not a customer, you’re probably doing one of those things.
A mechanic will have to spend at least two days getting the car checked out. Two days is plenty of time to get an oil change, but you can get a lot done quicker. The first thing you should do is take off the oil filter and oil cap and check for leaks. Sometimes you just need to replace the cap and filter. Thats the easy part.
