For most Honda oil changes, you can be in an out in under an hour. To get a better estimate of the wait times at our Lou Sobh Honda service center, contact us. You can also schedule a service appointment online to ensure you get back on the Alpharetta streets quickly.

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

When attempting an oil change at home, the time can vary depending on your vehicle and expertise. Plan on budgeting at least an hour, but it could take more or less than that. Before starting your oil change, you will want to make sure you have all the tools and parts you need, including:

  • New oil filter
  • New oil filter gasket
  • Rubber mallet
  • Correctly sized wrenches
  • Car jack
  • Wheel blocks

If this seems too much time and cost, you can opt for an oil change at our Cumming service center!

More Oil Change Information

When it’s time for your next oil change, turning to Lou Sobh Honda delivers the following benefits:

  • Our experienced and certified service team and state-of-the-art equipment allows us to work on more cars and provide more specialized care than a generic shop.
  • While the standard timeframe for an oil change used to be every 3,000 miles, 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. Consult your owner’s manual for the specific interval recommended for your make and model.
  • We offer a rotating selection of service specials, including popular oil change coupons and other discounted services.
  • Be sure to check your owner’s manual to confirm whether your vehicle requires synthetic or conventional oil. While synthetic oil typically costs more, but it won’t affect that time required for an oil change.
