How Long Does an Oil Change Take?

Adding oil to engine

If your Buick, Cadillac, or GMC is due for an oil change, you may be wondering “How long does an oil change take?” Not long at all! Most oil changes at Honolulu Buick GMC will take less than an hour, meaning you can schedule an oil change at your convenience while still having time in your day for other activities in Waipahu. For a better idea of wait times, you can contact our service team. You can also schedule a service appointment online and get back on the streets of Ewa Beach today!


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

When you perform an oil change at your Waianae home, the amount of time it takes can vary, especially when you’re first starting out. You’ll want to budget at least an hour to begin, but you may find it takes less time than that after you get started. Changing the oil in your car 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 typically takes less time and costs less to turn to a dealership like Honolulu Buick GMC when it’s time to replace your vehicle’s oil — and it’s certainly less of a headache to let our professional team handle the task!


More Oil Change Information

A lot goes into your vehicle’s care and maintenance, so when it’s time for an oil change, make sure to 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.
