How Long Does an Oil Change Take?

oil change on a car

Having your vehicle’s oil changes regularly is important to the vehicle’s overall performance. So how long does an oil change take? In short, not long. Most oil changes will take less than an hour. Should you decide to schedule an oil change service during your lunch break, it’ll be taken care of no problem. If you want a better idea of wait times, you’ll want to contact our Hiley Mazda of Hurst service team. In the meantime, schedule a service appointment online so you can get back to your Fort Worth trips in no time.

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

Should you decide to perform an oil change on your own, the amount of time it’ll take can vary. Make sure you budget for at least an hour, but it may take more or less time than that. In order to do this at home in Dallas, you’ll need new oil, a new oil filter, new oil filter gasket, a rubber mallet, correctly sized wrenches, a jack, and wheel blocks. If you’re not used to doing this yourself, it can be more expensive and time consuming. If you’d prefer to bring your vehicle to a service center, schedule an appointment with us at Hiley Mazda of Hurst.

More Oil Change Information

So how long does an oil change take and how long should it take? This depends on a few factors. When the time comes to get an oil change, make sure you keep the following in mind:

  • 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.
  • Our service specials page frequently offers oil change coupons and other discounted services.
  • 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 the time required for an oil change.
