Mechanic Pouring Motor Oil into Funnel

Is your vehicle due for service or maintenance, perhaps including an oil change? You’re probably wondering “How long does an oil change take?” The answer? Not too long, if you let experts like the service pros here at Momentum Alfa Romeo handle your Southlake service needs! We’ve got all the pertinent information you need to know about how long your next oil change should take below!



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

DIY oil change times can be quite different, depending on many factors such as:

  • Have you changed oil before? If not, it’ll take longer.
  • Do you have a lift or jacks? The former will reduce expected oil change time.
  • Do you have a vehicle that requires a lot of oil, like a big truck? This will make the time to drain out old oil a bit longer.

The reality is that for those without a hefty amount of auto experience, it often both takes less time and costs less to turn to a dealership like Momentum Alfa Romeo when it’s time to replace your vehicle’s oil. Ready to make an appointment? You can easily schedule oil change service online now!

More Oil Change Information

Here are some more oil-change-related facts to consider:

  • Automotive service experts used to recommend oil changes every 3,000 miles — but these days, new vehicles often only require oil changes every 5,000 – 7,500 miles. Some cars can go 10,000 miles between oil changes. Check your owner’s manual for a specific oil change interval.
  • Our service specials page often has specials on oil change service and other discounted services.
  • Does your car need synthetic oil? Or can it use conventional oil? It’s best to check your owner’s manual for that information. Synthetic oil typically costs more, but it won’t affect the time required for an oil change.
