Honda Oil Changes in Sandusky

Oil Change

It used to be that Honda oil changes in Sandusky were recommended every 3,000 miles, but advances in automotive engineering and oil technology have pushed those intervals up to every 5,000 to 7,500 miles. Better yet, oil changes should be taken care of as part of each Honda’s recommended maintenance plan, so sticking to yours will mean oil changes shouldn’t ever be something to worry about.

That said, it’s always worth learning why oil is important and how you can tell it might be time to visit our service center to have yours changed. Simply read on for answers to the following questions:

  • Why Are Oil Changes So Important?
  • How Can You Tell Your Vehicle Needs an Oil Change?

Why Are Oil Changes So Important?

Most people know oil is important, but far fewer actually understand how it helps a vehicle’s engine running. Just a few responsibilities include:

  • Circulating Cleaning Agents
  • Collecting and Removing Contaminants
  • Preventing Metal-on-Metal Contact
  • Keeping Your Engine Cool

If your oil isn’t able to work properly, you risk anything from internal damage to breakdowns. Unfortunately, all engine oil will eventually break down and become contaminated. That’s why regular oil changes remain so important.

How Can You Tell Your Vehicle Needs an Oil Change?

If you’re ever worried your vehicle needs its oil changed before your next scheduled service visit, the best thing to do is check it yourself. After waiting for your engine to cool, open the hood, find the oil reservoir, and pull out the dipstick. The oil stuck to your dipstick should be clear and amber. If it appears dirty or discolored, you should schedule servicing as soon as possible.

Further warning signs to watch for during your next trip around Toledo include:

  • Smell of Oil Within the Car
  • Falling Fuel Efficiency
  • Visible Exhaust Fumes
  • Active Check Engine or Change Oil Light 
  • Rumbling or Knocking Sounds from Your Engine
