Honda Oil Changes in Longview

Auto Mechanic Checking Oil

Honda oil changes in Longview should be performed regularly to keep your vehicle’s engine running smoothly for years to come, but plenty of drivers are tempted to go longer than recommended between each change. That puts your vehicle at risk, and the oil will need to be changed eventually in any case.

To save you from the inconvenience and expense associated with using old engine oil, we’ve gone ahead and put together answers to the most common oil change queries, including:

  • What Does Engine Oil Do?
  • How Can You Tell Your Oil Needs Changing?

What Does Engine Oil Do?

Engine oil is relatively inexpensive, but you should still consider it the lifeblood of your vehicle. As you take your next drive into work or head out on errands across Tyler, your vehicle’s engine oil will be:

  • Circulating to keep your engine cool.
  • Providing lubrication to prevent metal-on-metal contact.
  • Circulating cleaning agents to prevent corrosion.
  • Preventing contaminants such as dirt, dust, and small metal particles creating clogs.

The only problem with engine oil is that it will eventually need to be replaced. Over time, oil starts to break down and become too contaminated, at which point it will not be able to properly handle any of the responsibilities listed above.

How Can You Tell Your Oil Needs Changing?

Oil changes used to be recommended around every 3,000 miles, but modern engineering makes that figure overkill. Nowadays, your oil will probably need to be changed every 5,000 or 7,500 miles, but there are a few signs it needs to be replaced sooner than expected.

Just a few warning signs you should schedule servicing sooner include:

  • Visible Fumes from Your Exhaust
  • Persistent Check Engine or Oil Change Light
  • Rumbling or Knocking Sounds
  • Smell of Oil Within the Vehicle
  • Dark or Discolored Oil on the Oil Reservoir Dipstick
