Honda Oil Changes
What Is An Oil Change?
Aside from being seen as an inconvenience by some, an oil change is an integral part of owning a Honda vehicle, and its importance is often taken for granted. An oil change helps your vehicle prevent trouble from arising down the road. It doesn’t matter if you travel a little or a lot, the oil change is important to the health of your Honda Civic, CR-V, or Pilot. The oil acts as a lubricant, helping the moving parts of your engine run smoothly with little friction. Once the oil is used and ages, it breaks down and becomes thicker, causing it to fail at reducing the friction in your engine, potentially resulting in overheating.
Oil also collects debris and dirt from the road that may be harmful to your engine, and when an oil change is performed, that old oil is removed, taking the debris with it. Once our service team has emptied out the old oil, fresh oil is put in so your engine can continue to do its job for as long as possible. Some vehicles require a certain type of oil but rest assured that our Honda-trained team of technicians knows which to use on your exact model and we always carry enough to do the job.
How Often Will My Honda Model Need One?
This is a good question and one we hear a lot. The truth is, there are different oil change schedules for each brand, vehicle type, etc., and the only way to know for sure is to check your owner’s manual or contact our team. If you drive on roads that are not paved, or your vehicle is often working hard to get you to your destination, you may require oil changes more frequently, so the best rule of thumb is to ask our team for a specific recommendation for your Honda Odyssey or Accord.
