That all depends on your credit score, and how much the new auto loan inquiry and new debt on the credit dropped the score.  Someone that started with an 800 credit score could apply to get pre-approved now, someone with an original score of 600 might want to wait a few months.  Way too many variables to give you a good timeframe.
