How Long Does an Oil Change Take?

Service Technician changing the oil on a vehicle

If you’re new to automotive care, you might be wondering, “How long does an oil change take?” Luckily, oil changes are quick service tasks that can be handled in under an hour! That means you can book an appointment over your lunch break and make it back to the office without missing a beat. If you’re like many of our Omaha customers, you may ask, “How long should an oil change take if I do it myself?” Our team is here to help you through the job with DIY service tips and more. Read on below to get started!

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

If you’ve decided to take on an oil change in your own Columbus garage, the time needed to handle the job can vary quite drastically. You’ll want to budget at least an hour or two, but you can get the job done in right around an hour with some practice. An additional factor to consider is the time and cost of assembling the right equipment. You’ll need new oil, a new oil filter, a new oil filter gasket, a rubber mallet, correctly sized wrenches, a jack, and wheel blocks. In many cases, it can be much simpler to turn the keys over to our experienced team for an oil change.

More Oil Change Information

If your vehicle is due for fresh oil, be sure to keep the following in mind:

  • While you likely heard in the past that your vehicle needed an oil change every 3,000 miles, that simply isn’t the case these days. For modern cars, an oil change once every 5,000 to 7,500 miles is appropriate.
  • Not only can you put your feet up and relax while we change your oil, but you can also save big with our service coupons!
  • If you’re changing your own oil, be sure to determine if your vehicle needs synthetic oil or conventional oil. If you’re unsure, your owner’s manual will have the information you need.
