How Long Does an Oil Change Take?

Checking oil level on dipstick


If you are due for an oil change in the Munster area, you might be wondering, “How long does an oil change take?” Most oil change services will take less than an hour, meaning that you can schedule one during your lunch break and still have enough time to get back. If you would like more specific information on potential wait times for your specific vehicle, be sure to give us a call. You can also schedule an appointment with our service center if you would like the experience to be more expedient overall.



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

If you are performing an oil change on your own, the timeframe can ultimately vary. You will want to block out at least an hour, but this can take longer if you are not necessarily familiar with the process. You also will need to be familiar with multiple parts such as new oil, a new oil filter, a new oil filter gasket, a rubber mallet, correctly sized wrenches, a jack, and wheel blocks. It might be worth your time and money to visit us in the Schererville area. It is ultimately less of a headache if we handle this.

More Oil Change Information

If it is the right time to get an oil change, here are some points to consider: 

  • Typically, you should get an oil change every 3,000 miles, but these days new vehicles require oil changes every 5,000 to 7,500 miles. Some models can go 10,000 miles between oil changes. Be sure to check your owner’s manual for any specific oil change intervals. 
  • Our service specials can help you find exactly what you are looking for in terms of oil change coupons and other discounted services. 
  • Be sure to check our owner’s manual to see if your vehicle require synthetic or conventional oil. Synthetic oil typically costs more, but it won’t affect the time required for an oil change.
