Honda Oil Changes in Weymouth

Auto Mechanic Checking Oil

Looking for an oil change for your Honda vehicle in Weymouth? This vital maintenance task should take place at regular intervals set out by your manufacturer recommended service schedule, and your vehicle’s computer will alert you to when it’s needed. Oil may sometimes need replacing sooner than expected, which is why every driver should learn:

  • Why Regular Oil Changes Are Important
  • When Engine Oil Needs Changing

Why Regular Oil Changes Are Important

No engine oil lasts forever, so Boston drivers can’t simply keep driving with the same oil indefinitely. Over time, it will become less able to provide proper cooling, cleaning, and lubrication to prevent:

  • Overheating
  • Metal-on-Metal Contact
  • Corrosion
  • Engine Gunk Creating Clogs

This means that continuing to use old engine oil can lead to the expense and inconvenience associated with serious repairs.

When Engine Oil Needs Changing

Mechanics used to recommend changing engine oil every 3,000 miles, but advances in oil and automotive technology make such frequent changes unnecessary. Nowadays, oil changes are generally recommended between every 5,000 and 7,500 miles, which usually means having your oil changed whenever your tires are rotated.

Unfortunately, oil may sometimes break down and become too contaminated to function properly sooner than you’d expected, so watch out for these common warning signs:

  • Persistent Check Engine Light
  • Visible Fumes from Your Exhaust
  • Rumbling or Knocking Sounds from the Engine
  • Poorer Fuel Efficiency than Before

You can also perform a visual inspection to check for signs your oil needs to be replaced. Let your engine cool, then open the hood and draw the dipstick from the oil reservoir. You should see clear amber oil stuck to it. If you notice any dirtiness or discoloration, it’s time to schedule servicing so one of our technicians can take a look.
