How Long Does an Oil Change Take?

Oil Change

Is your new Mitsubishi due for an oil change? If so, you might be wondering, “How long does an oil change take?” Generally, most oil changes take less than an hour. So, you can schedule oil service during your lunch hour or between appointments and get it done quickly. To get an even more accurate idea of wait times, feel free to contact our service department

How Long Should an Oil Change Take If It’s DIY? 

If you’re performing an oil change for yourself, the amount of time it takes can vary. You’ll want to budget at least an hour, but it can take more or less than that. Changing oil yourself also requires new oil, a new oil filter, a new oil filter gasket, a rubber mallet, correctly sized wrenches, a jack, and wheel blocks. It often both takes less time and costs less to turn to a dealership like Daytona Mitsubishi when it’s time to replace your vehicle’s oil — and it’s certainly less of a headache to let us handle it!

Thinking of performing an oil change yourself? The amount of time will vary depending on how familiar you are with oil changes for Mitsubishi (or any make) vehicles. You’ll want to set at least an hour aside, but it takes longer if you’ve never done an oil change before. Before you begin, you’ll want to make sure you have the necessary tools and items, including:

  • New oil of the correct grade
  • A new oil filter
  • A new oil filter gasket
  • A rubber mallet
  • Correctly sized wrenches
  • A jack
  • Wheel blocks for all four wheels 

Unless you’re an avid car enthusiast, you’ll need to buy the items listed above. In that case, turn to Daytona Mitsubishi! We’ll complete the oil change for you and save you time, money, and hassle. What’s more, you can feel confident that it’ll be done right the first time! If you want to check your oil instead, refer to our step-by-step guide! 

More About Oil Change Services 

Whether you’re getting an oil change for the first time, or you’ve been getting them for your vehicle for years, it’s important to keep the following points in mind: 

  • Oil changes used to be recommended every 3,000 miles. Nowadays, new vehicles need oil changes every 5,000 – 7,500 miles — give or take a couple thousand miles. 
  • Check out our service specials page for opportunities to save on the routine services your Mitsubishi needs. 
  • Most Mitsubishi vehicles take fully synthetic oil, but you’ll want to double-check your owner’s manual to be sure of the grade. Or, you can ask one of our factory-trained specialists for advice!
