How Long Does an Oil Change Take?



Have you noticed recently that something seems to be up with your Buick engine? Maybe your engine won’t stop groaning on Winter Haven roads, or maybe your “check engine” light just flashed on. These are just some of the telltale signs that your vehicle is due for an oil change. Just like anyone with a busy schedule, you’re probably wondering, “How long should an oil change take?” Not long at all! A Buick oil change in Lakeland will take less than an hour. 

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

If you choose to perform an oil change by yourself, the amount of time it takes can vary. Usually, it takes an hour, but it can take more or less than that. Changing oil yourself also requires new oil, a new oil filter, a new oil filter gasket, a rubber mallet, correctly sized wrenches, a jack, and wheel blocks. You’re better off having a dealership like Buick Lakeland do it for you, though, as it takes less time and costs less. Save yourself the hassle and schedule an oil change online today to have our expert technicians at Buick Lakeland get your car back up to speed on Bartow roads!

More Oil Change Information

If it’s time to get an oil change, be sure to keep the following points in mind: 

  • New vehicles need oil changes every 5,000 – 7,500 miles. In fact, some models can even go 10,000 miles between oil changes, but this depends on a multitude of factors.
  • 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.
