What Does Oil Do?

Oil is a multifunctional liquid that goes into your engine. Its most basic function is to lubricate the moving metal parts under the hood to reduce these parts from creating too much friction (and heat) when they rub against each other. Oil also keeps these parts cool to further reduce the risk of the engine overheating. Lastly, oil can clean your engine and its components. By picking up the free-flowing debris and grease, it keeps the parts clean and functional, but it also gets dirty and less effective over time.

When Does Oil Need to Be Changed?

Staying ahead of your oil change is recommended for every driver. Of course, most drivers are different, so measuring in mileage is far more reliable than time. Typically, most new engines feature synthetic oil, which can last anywhere between 5,000 and 7,000 miles. Of course, if you lose track, there are a few signs that can tell you it’s time to schedule an oil change:

  • Strange Engine Noises- If your engine is particularly noisy, it could mean that it’s not performing as efficiently (because of low or old oil).
  • Check Engine Light- When you see this light appear, it means to schedule service. This light comes on automatically during the end of your oil change interval, so it means it may be time to change your oil.
  • Dark & Dirty Oil- If you check your dipstick periodically, it’s a great chance for you to check the quality for your oil.
  • Performance is Sluggish- When your vehicle is running on low or dirty oil, its performance and efficiency will drop.

Types of Oil for Honda Vehicles

When scheduling an oil change near me, it’s good to account for the type of oil your Honda vehicle needs. Typically, you’ll want to go with Honda Genuine Oil. You’ll want to look for the 0W-20 rated viscosity for when it’s time for your Honda oil change. This synthetic oil lasts longer than conventional because its impurities are chemically removed and it has a longer heat resistance—making it last longer than conventional oil.
