How Long Does an Oil Change Take?

Oil Change

How long does an oil change take? Usually less than an hour if you visit our service center, but perhaps a little longer if you take care of things on your own Woodway driveway. Schedule servicing for a time that’s convenient, and our team at Allen Samuels Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram FIAT should be able to get the job done while you’re on a lunch break. Read on to find out more.

How Long Should an Oil Change Take Doing It Yourself?

While the team here at our service center will always be happy to take care of oil changes on your behalf, this is a routine maintenance task that you can always handle at home without professional assistance. The amount of time necessary will vary according to your own knowledge and experience, but it should take a little less or a little more than an hour.

You’ll want to ensure you have the materials as well as the time to change your oil. That means gathering:

  • New Oil
  • New Oil Filter
  • New Oil Filter Gasket
  • Rubber Mallet
  • Correctly Sized Wrenches
  • Jack
  • Wheel Blocks

If you don’t have all those items or think you might be pressed for time, it’s probably going to be faster and less costly to visit a service center.

Oil Change Tips

If it’s time to get your oil changed, here are a few things we always recommend keeping in mind:

  • Know the Right Time: It used to be that oil changes were recommended every 3,000 miles, but modern vehicles using modern oil can now travel between 5,000 and 7,500 miles before needing one – some can even go up to 10,000 miles. Make sure you check your owner’s manual for the recommended oil change interval.
  • Check for Specials: Plenty of service centers, including ours at Allen Samuels Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram FIAT, provide a specials page that helps you save on anything from a simple oil change to a complex repair.
  • Check the Oil: Your owner’s manual will recommend either synthetic or conventional oil, so make sure you use the right type.
