How Often Should You Change Your Oil?

Regularly changing the oil in your Honda is one of the most important maintenance tasks, and will ensure that the engine runs smooth and safe. The rule on how often to change your oil has changed over time. It used to be recommended that you change the engine oil every 3,000 miles, but due to advancements in engine and oil technology, most vehicles can be driven between 7,500 and 10,000 miles between oil changes. Your owner’s manual will have the specific schedule for your Honda car, truck, or SUV. Learn more about oil changes from the experts at Fisher Honda.

Oil Change Frequency Guidelines

While the 7,500-10,000 interval is a good general rule, there are a number of factors that can affect how often your vehicle will require an oil change. Some of these include:

  • Off-roading
  • Commercial use
  • Racing
  • Heavy towing

If any of these apply to you, stop by our Honda Service center near Denver, and our certified technicians will be happy to help you set up an oil change schedule that will suit your driving needs.

More Oil Change Tips

Here are a few important facts about oil changes:

  • Since engine oil breaks down over time, even if you’re not driving your car daily, you should always make sure to get an oil change at least twice a year.
  • Every oil change should also include an oil filter replacement. If you’re changing the oil yourself, you can find the correct oil filter for your Honda in the parts department at Fisher Honda.
  • Some new vehicles require synthetic oil. Check your owner’s manual to find out whether to use synthetic or conventional oil in your Honda model.

How Often Should I Check My Oil Level?

We recommend that you check your oil level once a month. This is a good way to catch leaks or any other problems with the oil system before they cause damage. When checking the oil level, pay attention to the oil’s color, and be on the lookout for metal particles in the oil, which can be a sign of serious problems. If you find that you are often low on oil, or if you notice any other issues, schedule a service appointment with Fisher Honda today.
