Oil Light_124809516

When it’s time to schedule your service at Brady Kilmury CDJR, you might wonder “Just how long does an oil change take?” The good news is that a typical oil change only takes about an hour of your time. That means you can get your routine maintenance out of the way during your lunch break in Birmingham! Learn more about the perks of scheduling your oil changes at Brady Kilmury CDJR, and plan your next service with us in Bessemer.

Can I Change My Oil Myself?

If you enjoy DIY car care, you can change your oil without making the trip to the service center. However, your garage in Hoover is not as well-equipped to handle automotive work as a professional facility. That means you’ll need to invest in some new products: new oil, a new oil filter, a new oil filter gasket, a rubber mallet, correctly sized wrenches, a jack, and wheel blocks. As a result, the first few DIY oil changes can be costly and time consuming. If you’re not up for the challenge, our team at Brady Kilmury CDJR would be happy to take care of the heavy lifting for you!

Other Tips and Tricks

You know how long does an oil change take, but what else should you know about this valuable service?

  • Most vehicles have an oil change interval between 5,000 and 7,500 miles – but, some can go even longer between services! Be sure to check your owner’s manual to see when you should schedule your next oil change.
  • Your owner’s manual will also tell you exactly what type of oil is needed for your vehicle. Synthetic oils are slightly more expensive, but they also last longer than cheaper alternatives.
  • Want to save even more money? Check out our service specials to get the quality care you need with budget-friendly prices.
