DIY Buick & GMC Oil Changes

We know oil changes at a trusted service center are quick enough for you to get one done during your work break, but how long does an oil change take if you do it yourself? If you plan on changing your oil yourself, it can take at least an hour, if not longer. Just make sure you have the correct oil, oil filter, and tools. In many cases, it’s much quicker to make the drive from Acworth to our dealership for an oil change.

Additional Oil Change Suggestions

Oil changes are simple, but there are some important things to keep in mind. Let’s take a look at some additional oil change suggestions from our experts:

  • Reference your owner’s manual in regards to your oil change intervals. Some vehicles can even go as far as 10,000 miles before an oil change. But it depends on a variety of different factors, including your driving habits around Canton.
  • Make sure you regularly check our service specials before you get an oil change. We provide rotating service offers that could help you save even more money on your next service.
  • Do you know what kind of oil your vehicle takes? The two main types are synthetic and conventional oil. Synthetic lasts longer but is typically more expensive. Check your owner’s manual for more specifics.
