How Long Does an Oil Change Take?

Changing oil

No matter if you’re behind the wheel of a new, used, or certified pre-owned model, every Katy and Spring driver knows that an oil change is essential to having your vehicle run at its best. But with so many of us constantly on the go, you may be left wondering “How long should an oil change take?” This essential maintenance doesn’t take long and with the right service team on the job, you can hit the road faster than ever. Learn more with the automotive experts at John Eagle Acura!


How Long Should an Oil Change Take if I Do it Myself?

So, how long should an oil change take? Whether you decide to have it done at your local service center or want to give it a try for yourself at home, you’ll most likely want to set an hour of your time aside to get it done. You should also know that this means you’ll not only need to replace your oil but also your oil filters and oil filter gaskets if needed. And, if you do it at home, you’ll need a rubber mallet, correctly sized wrenches, a jack, and wheel blocks to get the job done right. However, if you’re not too familiar with this process or don’t have all the correct materials it’s best to leave the hassle to a local service team.

Why Get an Oil Change at John Eagle Acura?

There are many places you can go to get your oil change, but these are just some of the benefits you’ll have when you take advantage of the service team at John Eagle Acura:

  • Our experienced service team and state-of-the-art equipment allow us to work on more cars than a generic auto shop.
  • Our service specials page frequently offers oil change coupons and other discounted services.

Before scheduling your oil change with us, consider the following factors:

  • Conventional wisdom used to dictate that you should get an oil change every 3,000 miles — but these days, new vehicles need oil changes every 5,000 – 7,500 miles. In fact, some models can even go 10,000 miles between oil changes. Check your owner’s manual for a specific oil change interval.
  • Be sure to check and see if your vehicle requires synthetic or conventional oil. Your owner’s manual will have that information. Synthetic oil typically costs more, but it won’t affect that time required for an oil change.
