How Long Does an Oil Change Take?

An oil change is an essential service to ensure your new, used, or certified pre-owned model runs at its best for years to come. But since many drivers are always on the go, you may be wondering: “How long should an oil change take?” With the experts at Sussex Honda, an oil change should only take around an hour or less. Learn more so you can make the time for your next oil change with our service professionals.

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

Just as you’ll want to set about an hour aside for an oil change at your local service center, the same can be said if you’re up to the challenge of changing your oil at home. You’ll need certain items such as new oil, a new oil filter, a new oil filter gasket, a rubber mallet, correctly sized wrenches, a jack, and wheel blocks to get the job done. While you surely can do this on your own, you can always leave the hassle to our Sussex Honda service department to get you back on the road in no time.

More Oil Change Information

While there are many places around Sparta Twp and Hackettstown for you to get your next oil change, these are just some of the benefits when you schedule your next oil change with us:

  • Our experienced service team and state-of-the-art equipment allow us to work on more cars than a generic auto shop.
  • 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 that time required for an oil change.
