How Long Does an Oil Change Take?

Auto Mechanic Checking Oil

When you bring your vehicle to Allen Samuels Auto Group for an oil change, it is likely that your oil change will be completed in an hour or less. If you would like a better idea of what our current wait times are, you can always contact us in advance. If you like, you can also set up an appointment online to make sure your oil change is complete in a timely manner.

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

If you prefer to perform your own maintenance, the time it takes for an oil change could fluctuate. It is best to plan for at least an hour. It may take you less time or more time depending on the situation. Before you can change your oil, you will need the following items:

  • New oil
  • New oil filter
  • New oil filter gasket
  • Rubber mallet
  • Correctly sized wrenches
  • Jack and wheel blocks

Keep in mind that it may be quicker and more affordable to leave your next oil change to the professionals at Allen Samuels Auto Group.

Additional Information About Oil Changes

What are the benefits of getting a professional oil change at the Allen Samuels Auto Group service center? How often should this task be performed? We have the details below:

  • Our experienced service team and state-of-the-art equipment allow us to work on more cars than a generic auto shop.
  • In the past, it was recommended that you bring your vehicle in for an oil change every 3,000 miles. This recommendation has changed thanks to advancements in automotive and engine oil technology. Now, it is a good idea to get an oil change every 5,000 to 7,500 miles. Remember to consult your vehicle’s owner’s manual. There may be different specifications from the manufacturer.
  • See if we are running any service specials to help you save on your next oil change.
  • Once again, take a look at your owner’s manual to see if conventional or synthetic motor oil is required for your particular make and model. Synthetic oil typically costs more, but it won’t affect that time required for an oil change.
