How Often Do You Need an Oil Change?

You need an oil change every 7,500 miles. That's roughly twice per year for the average New Jersey driver. It's definitely recommended not to go more than one year between oil changes, regardless of how many miles you drive.

While it's always a good idea to watch your odometer to ensure that you're scheduling an oil change at the right intervals, Honda drivers can also look to their dashboard for messages from the Honda Maintenance Minder.

When you have 15% oil life, the Honda Maintenance Minder will display a light, along with one of these codes:

  • A: Replace the engine oil
  • B: Replace the engine oil, oil filter, and inspect the brakes

If you see either of these messages on your dashboard, schedule service at your nearest Honda dealership as soon as possible.

Do I Need an Oil Change?

If you're not sure if you need an oil change, there are a few things that can indicate that it's time for one. Some of the most common signs to watch for are:

  • Performance and efficiency issues
  • Oil pressure light, check engine light, or Honda Maintenance Minder lights
  • Dark or dirty oil
  • An oily smell inside the cabin

Also, if you don't remember the last time you had your oil changed, then it's best to play it safe and schedule service. Engine oil is responsible for the smooth and safe operation of your engine, so it's important to make sure that your oil is clean and fresh and not old and dirty.
