Honda Oil Change Service in West Springfield
Making sure your car receives regular oil changes is a crucial part of its overall maintenance. Oil functions as a lubricant. It circulates through the engine to keep everything cool and protected from wear, and it even carries away debris that that finds its way in from the outside so that it can be trapped by the oil filter. Over the course of a few months, oil loses its effectiveness as a result of sludge and particle buildup, and when this happens, it’s time to have it drained out and replaced with fresh oil.
How Often Should Oil Be Changed?
If you’re wondering about how often your Honda will need its oil change, the answer is not cut and dried, although it is relatively simple. The rule of thumb for most newer Hondas is every 6,000 miles, unless it says otherwise in your owner’s manual. With average driving that equates to twice a year, but if you drive a lot or under stressful conditions (such as stop-and-go commuting or frequent short trips), you may need three or even four oil change visits per year. Your Honda may even be equipped with a Maintenance Minder oil indicator that lets you know through a display on the instrument panel how much effective life is left in the oil. Luckily, oil changes are a quick and inexpensive service, and you can sit in our comfortable customer waiting area while our factory-trained Honda service technicians get the job done.
