How Long Does an Oil Change Take?

Adding oil to car
Getting a regular oil change every couple of months or couple thousand miles driven will ensure your Kia runs at its best for years to come. What happens if I don’t get an oil change and how long does an oil change take? Well, usually an oil change should last no longer than an hour. Learn more about when is the best time to bring in your vehicle to Ray Brandt Kia for an oil change or how you can do it yourself at home!


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

In case you’re you’re wondering, “How long should an oil change take if I do it myself?” Well, this depends on how well you’re familiar with your vehicle, the oil change process, and the components you’ll be working on. Set at least an hour aside or more to allow yourself time to not only change the oil but also add a new oil filter and new oil filter gasket. If this is all new to you, that’s fine, as you can always turn to the Ray Brandt Kia service team to get the job done for you with no issue.

Checking Oil

More About Oil Changes

You can find plenty of places around New Orleans and Gretna that offer oil changes, but when you get an oil change at Ray Brandt Kia, you get these additional benefits:

  • 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 with synthetic oil. Check your owner’s manual for a specific oil change interval.
  • 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 can extend the time between oil changes.
