Honda Oil Change Service
One of the most important maintenance procedures for your Honda vehicle is an engine oil change. Fortunately, it is also one of the easiest, cheapest, and quickest. Engine oil is used to lubricate the engine internals, protecting them from friction and heat that can cause catastrophic damage. These oil changes are part of the regular maintenance schedule for your Honda, but Germain Honda of Beavercreek has put together a guide to oil changes so you can better understand the process and recognize possible issues that need more immediate attention.
When Is the Right Time to Change My Oil?
While different driving styles and conditions can sometimes make a difference, the oil change schedule set out in your owner’s manual is the best guide for determining when to change your oil. It has become even more important to consult your owner’s manual in recent years, as advances in technology have given different vehicles different intervals, and there is no longer a universal rule for how often your oil should be changed.
If you are in any way unclear about when your oil should be changed, or you have a reason to need a change before the scheduled service, the friendly and knowledgeable service team at Germain Honda of Beavercreek will be happy to help you with any questions you might have.

Tips for Identifying an Engine Oil-Related Issue
While they don’t happen often, there are times when an engine oil issue that isn’t routine will occur. Knowing what to look for to identify these issues will help prevent serious damage to your engine.
Oil Spots Beneath Your Vehicle
A few oil spots under your vehicle are generally your first indicator of a leak. While it might not be an urgent problem at first, a small leak around the drain plug, oil pan gasket, or valve cover gasket could turn into a big problem quickly and without warning. It’s best to get these issues addressed as soon as you see them.
Oil Warning / Low Oil Pressure Light
An oil or oil pressure light on the dash generally means you have a more serious problem. The best way to prevent serious engine damage when one of these comes on is to shut off the engine and contact the experts at Germain Honda of Beavercreek to get the issue fixed right away.
