How Long Does an Oil Change Take?

Do you find yourself asking, “How long does an oil change take?” If you are new to automotive ownership or taking over car care tasks for the first time, it may not be obvious how long service should take. Here at Jim Marsh Kia, we offer intuitive tips and competitive service prices for all our Henderson customers.

The difference between how long should an oil change take and how long the task actually takes can be two very different figures if you work with lesser mechanics around Boulder City. For expeditious service you can rely on, turn to Jim Marsh Kia for all things auto.

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

If you are eager to flex your DIY muscles, you can learn how to efficiently complete an oil change in your Pahrump garage with a bit of practice. So, how long should an oil change take if you opt to take the hands-on approach? We suggest you budget at least an hour, and likely more, if you are new to the job. However, in time, many drivers can learn to complete the job in under an hour.

Before you jump into the task, you will need to gather fresh oil, a new oil filter, a new oil filter gasket, a rubber mallet, correctly sized wrenches, a jack, and wheel blocks. While there is a certain amount of satisfaction to be won when at-home car care is completed, many Las Vegas drivers find it to be easier to turn the job over to the pros at our service center. We can take care of the job quickly and our rotating service specials can help you save!

  • Our experience and leading-edge equipment allow us to efficiently work on a variety of models at a volume generic shops can’t handle.
  • Our technicians can advise you on when an oil change is needed. In the past, the recommendation was to get an oil change every 3,000 miles.

  • We can help you discern if your model requires synthetic or conventional oil. Our team can walk you through the pros and cons of each option including weighing performance vs. price.
