How Long Should an Oil Change Take?

If you’re someone who likes to get their hands dirty working on the car in the driveway, the amount of time it will take performing an oil change yourself can vary. You’ll want to expect at least an hour, but it can take more or less time. Conducting an oil change yourself will also require the following tools:

  • new oil
  • new oil filter
  • new oil filter gasket
  • rubber mallet
  • correctly sized wrenches
  • a jack
  • wheel blocks

However, if you’re running on a tight schedule in Haines City, bringing your vehicle to Chevrolet Center Inc will take less time, and less money, to replace your car’s oil.

More Information About Oil Changes

Many drivers often pose the question, “why do I need my oil changed?” Oil changes are a crucial part of vehicle maintenance because engine oil lubricates many of the working parts under the hood. When oil breaks down or gets filled with debris, this can cause friction amongst parts and potentially lead to expensive or irreparable damage.

If you’re wondering how often you should get your oil changed, the previous rule of thumb was that Davenport drivers should get an oil change every 3,000 miles. Nowadays, new vehicles need oil changes every 5,000 – 7,500 miles. Some models can even go 10,000 miles between oil changes! But, we always recommend that drivers consult their owner’s manual for a specific oil change interval. You should also refer to your owner’s manual to check whether your vehicle requires synthetic or conventional oil. Synthetic oil is typically more expensive, but this won’t impact your oil change time.
