How Often Should You Change Your Oil?

Honda oil change frequency guidelines generally suggest that you should schedule replacement at least once every 7,500 to 10,000 miles. Although it’s always a good idea to check your vehicle’s service and warranty booklet for a model-specific guideline, changing your oil at least once per year will protect your engine and keep things running smoothly. Read on to learn more about your vehicle’s automatic maintenance reminders and get the facts on Honda oil changes.

Oil Change Frequency Made Easy

How often should you change your oil in real-world conditions? All new Honda vehicles come equipped with Honda Maintenance Minder™, an automated tracking system that will tell you when it’s time to visit the shop. Although you should always schedule service at least once per year or once every 10,000 miles, a light on your dashboard will appear if you’re in need of oil service:

  • The letter “A” indicates that you’re due for replacement of your engine oil and oil filter
  • The letter “B” indicates the need for an oil change as well, but it also tells us that you’re in need of some additional checks and inspections.

Although Honda CR-V oil change frequency guidelines may differ from Honda Accord oil change frequency guidelines, both models make it easy to stay on top of service.

 

Oil Change Frequency: Tips & Tricks

  1. Honda Ultimate Full Synthetic Motor Oil has been created specifically for Honda vehicles, and you shouldn’t use any other oil product in your vehicle. The same is true for the genuine Honda oil filters that you’ll find at our parts department.
  2. If you frequently engage in heavy towing, off-roading, racing, or commercial activity near Cedar Park, it’s a good idea to change your oil even more often than your owner’s manual recommends. 
  3. Although an oil change is only required every 7,500 miles or so, many drivers change their oil once every 5,000 miles. This helps to ensure that the engine lasts as long as possible.
  4. If your Honda Maintenance Minder™ light does not come on within the space of a year, schedule service and change the oil anyways. Oil breaks down over time, even if it isn’t being used.

 

How Often Should You Check Your Oil Level?

Opening up the hood and checking your oil level manually can help you catch leaks before they lead to significant (or even permanent) damage. If you’re scheduling all of your oil changes on schedule, checking the oil level at least once per month should be sufficient.
