Took my car in today for an oil change (not service) - I specifically requested the service indicator not to be reset and for just the engine oil to be changed.

How long should a garage take to change the engine oil, assuming no problems?

I've changed engine oil on novas and orions i had when i was a kid and never really timed myself but know it's not a big job.

Out of interest, does anyone know the time billed for an oil service on a 3.0? there's a few bit (checking brakes etc) that are beyond a simple oil change.

Many thanks.
