Exporting video from premiere pro is taking too long

So exporting from premiere pro has always pretty long for me because I have low RAM, but it's has never taken days for it to export. My videos are less than 15 minutes with minor edits. I have the storage and 7.59 in RAM. I've updated premiere pro and tried changing the settings as well. My footage is 4k and the audio is mid.

 

Any help would be great.

What are the complete computer specs, including hard drives (how many, what kind, what is on each, what capacity, and how full)?

If NVIDIA graphics, make sure to use the 517.40 Studio Driver from NVIDIA (NOT the Game Driver).

I have over 350 GB left on my local disk and about 900 GB left on a external disk.

What graphics card do you have?

Your specs aren't really what is needed for 4K:

Are the disks SSD or HDD?

What is on each disk (media, cache, exports)?

One is SSD (local) and the other is HDD (external). 

My external is what I use mainly for the videos but I use the local when I think something is wrong (like now). 

There's just videos, pictures and screenshots on both. I clean out my computer pretty often because I don't really use it for anything else. And my computer is up to date as well.

Very minor effects like color grading.

Color grading is not a minor effect.  It uses a lot of computer resources.

Your timeline is "red", which means it renders solely by CPU. To make render/export faster, follow these rules:

1) Ideally don't use CPU-effects at all (keep a timeline "yellow" = maximum speed mode)

2) If you can't avoid using CPU-effects - don't mix up CPU- and GPU- effects in the same adjustment layer. Doing so will switch rendering into "software only" mode (=very slow). Instead separate GPU and CPU effects in two different layers. Put "GPU-layer" on top of a "CPU-layer". This way GPU-acceleration will actually work

3) In case of applying effects directly to a clip without adjustment layers: organize effects in a way that all GPU-effects are applied after CPU-effects

4) If by all means you have to use some CPU-only effect on top of accelerated ones - then split the job on 2 parts: first you export the timeline with accelerated effects, then re-import and add that necessary CPU-effect(s). This way it'll be much faster than CPU-only render in one pass. (or use render-&-replace instead of export-import)

5) One more thing to remember. PPro often consider 3rd party effects as non-accelerated even if they use GPU for rendering (Twixtor, RGMB suite, etc ). Use this as main criteria of non-accelerated effect - its addition turns render bar from yellow to red.
