Oil Change Benefits
By staying up to date on oil changes and routine maintenance, you can ensure peace of mind that your vehicle will run smoothly during its lifespan. Though every vehicle is different, the typical oil span guideline is between 7,500 to 10,000 miles. If you typically drive under harsh conditions or frequently off-road, we recommend visiting earlier. Main benefits of staying up to date with oil changes include:
- Ensuring engine parts stay lubricated
- Ensuring your engine runs at maximum power
- Ensuring your engine is free of pollutants
- Ensuring your engine does not overheat
It is never a good idea to extend your oil change intervals. Engine oil wears out overtime, leaving your engine with insufficient lubrication and protection. Trust that our certified Honda technicians will care for your vehicle and perform the best service possible. When you're needing to service your vehicle, come and see the experts at Tonkin Gresham Honda! Our Service Center is located at 24999 SE Stark St. in Troutdale, and our experienced Honda Certified technicians can’t wait to assist you!
Honda Oil Change FAQ
Does Honda Care Cover Oil Changes?
Yes, depending on the coverage level you choose. You must select Sentinel Services or the Sentinel Plus Services package of Honda Care for covered oil and filter changes.
How Often Should I Change the Oil in My Honda?
A rule of thumb is that, for conventional oil, you should get an oil change every 3,000 to 5,000 miles. If you use high-quality synthetic oil, getting an oil change every 7,500 to 10,000 miles is sufficient.
Do I Have to Get My Oil Change at a Honda Dealership?
No, you can get your oil changed at any mechanic shop that offers this service. However, when you get an oil change at an authorized Honda service center, technicians will use oil and genuine Honda oil filters that are tailored to work best with your engine.
What Type of Oil do Honda Engines Use?
Honda engines are engineered to work best with semi-synthetic oil, which is a blend of synthetic and conventional oil.
