If you’re a new driver, you may be wondering, “How long does an oil change take?” Usually, oil changes take about 45 minutes to an hour, but it varies from location to location. Trying to fit oil service into your schedule? Contact our service center with questions about how long our services take!
It depends. If you’re experienced with performing oil changes yourself, it’ll probably take about as long as it would at a service center — maybe less if you deduct travel time. If you’ve never changed your car’s engine oil, it’s a different story. Budget for at least an hour, but realistically, expect it to take longer. You’ll need to gather the necessary items, such as fresh oil, a fresh oil filter and gasket, an oil pan to drain the oil, a rubber mallet, wrenches, wheel blocks, and a car jack to lift the car.
Additionally, you’ll need to allow some time for you to follow a DIY guide. If you’re in a hurry or your vehicle is in desperate need of an oil change, consider letting the service technicians at Volkswagen North Scottsdale handle it for you!
