How Long Does an Oil Change Take?

how-to-check-car-oil

 

If your Ford is due for oil service, you may be wondering, “How long does an oil change take?” Not long at all! Most oil changes at Beach Ford will take less than an hour, meaning you could likely schedule one during your lunch break and get it taken care of quickly. For a better idea of wait times, contact us today. You can also schedule a service appointment online and get back on the streets of Conway quickly.

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

If you’re performing an oil change for yourself, the amount of time it takes can vary. You’ll want to budget at least 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. It often both takes less time and costs less to turn to a dealership like Beach Ford when it’s time to replace your vehicle’s oil — and it’s certainly less of a headache to let us handle it!

More Oil Change Information

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