Oil Changes for Your Honda
Getting regular oil changes is simple maintenance that has a huge impact. Going too many miles without an oil change can lead to the under-performance of your Honda, and sometimes, even costly engine repairs. Oil changes are a quick and easy way to make sure your car operates efficiently and can help prolong its life.
What does oil do?
To put it simply, oil lubricates your engine. This is a huge task because lubrication keeps the engine cool. Your Honda’s engine consists of many tiny parts that rub together, causing friction and heat that can wear down your engine overtime. Clean oil reduces the friction and heat and keeps your chances of having costly engine repairs to a minimum.
When should my oil be changed?
This depends on the type of car you drive and the kind of driving you do. You’ve probably heard that engine oil should be changed every 3,000 miles but most makes and models today can go much longer, usually up to 10,000 miles without an oil change. If you drive in dirty environments or through extreme temperatures, you will probably want to get your oil changed more often. When you visit Reineke Honda’s service center, we’ll help you determine and oil change schedule that fits your needs and driving style.
What kind of oil should I use?
This also depends on the type of care you drive and the kind of driving you do. You might consider synthetic oil that lasts much longer than conventional oil. We’ll help you choose the right oil that maximizes your vehicle’s performance. Just schedule service today.
