So, your new INFINITI is ready for an oil change—but you can’t afford to spend all day in a service center. How long does an oil change take? INFINITI of San Jose knows you need to get back on San Jose roads as fast as possible, and most oil changes at the INFINITI of San Jose service center take less than an hour. That means you could have it done during your lunch break. You can schedule a service appointment online or over the phone, and you can even take advantage of our pickup and drop-off service! Just let us know what time would work best for you.

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

If you enjoy DIY projects around Walnut Creek and are curious how long an oil change should take if you do it yourself, it’s hard to say. The amount of time it takes will vary depending on your skill level and other factors. You should budget at least an hour, or more time if you’ve never performed the service before. Don’t forget that changing the oil yourself also requires replacement oil, a new oil filter, a filter gasket, rubber mallet, various wrenches, a jack, and wheel blocks.

Does your schedule not afford you the opportunity for the DIY lifestyle? Constantly paying for oil changes adds up, even at a great value, from our service department. The new INFINITI Premium Care Coverage gives you 3 years’ worth of coverage when you purchase a 2023 model. We’ll even pick your car up and drop it off for you.

More Oil Change Information

If your INFINITI needs an oil change, keep the following points in mind:

  • It used to be that you should get an oil change every 3,000 miles, but these days, new vehicles can go 5,000 – 7,500 miles between oil changes. Some cars can even go up to 10,000 miles between oil changes. Always check your owner’s manual for specific oil change recommendations for your particular make and model.
  • The INFINITI of San Jose service specials frequently feature oil change coupons and other discounted services to save you money on your Pleasanton drives.
  • Check to see if your vehicle requires synthetic or conventional oil. Most luxury cars and high-performance vehicles require synthetic oil. Your owner’s manual will tell you. Synthetic oil costs more, but it won’t affect the time it takes for an oil change.
