How Long Does an Oil Change Take?

Oil Change

If it’s time for a routine oil change, you’re probably wondering, “How long should an oil change take?” Not that long! Most oil changes at Jaguar Santa Monica take less than an hour, which means it won’t be long before you’re back out on the Malibu roads. For a better idea of oil-change wait times, give our service center a call today. You can schedule a service appointment right at home! 

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

If you’re handling the oil change yourself, the amount of time does vary. However, it’s best to at least budget an hour of your time. Changing oil yourself at your Pacific Palisades-area home requires new oil, a new oil filter, a new oil filter gasket, a rubber mallet, correctly sized wrenches, a jack, and wheel blocks. 

While many people may prefer to perform their oil change, it takes less time and costs less to visit our Santa Monica service center for your next oil change. 

Additional Oil Change Information

Remember these oil change details when it’s time for your next oil change near Brentwood:

  • An oil change should be done every 3,000 miles, but thanks to advances in oil technology, the oil frequency has changed to every 5,000 to 7,400 miles. Some vehicles can go 10,000 miles between oil changes! Always refer to your vehicle’s owner’s manual for the specific oil change interval.
  • We offer a rotating selection of service specials to use on your next visit to our service center.
  • Check your vehicle’s owner’s manual to see if your particular model requires synthetic or conventional oil. Synthetic oil does cost more, but it doesn’t affect the time required for an oil change.
