When to Change Your Oil

Oil life system

Maintenance Minder is the onboard computer system in your vehicle continuously monitors the  engine operating conditions such as speed, engine and ambient  temperature, time and the vehicle use. The system will count down the vehicles oil life based on these conditions to determine when an engine  oil change and maintenance is necessary. Once your vehicle reaches  0% the maintenance minder will begin to show negative mileage. This  indicates how many miles your vehicle service is past due.

The Oil-Life Monitor System does not check the oil level.  The dipstick is the best way to check oil level. You should check your oil at least once a month. Preferably more often. If your Honda has a leak or is burning oil weekly checks will catch the problem before it hurts the engine.
 
When your Honda engine becomes loud, that is a sign that it is ready for an oil change. This tends to get ignored, because engine make some noise. Listen to hear if it is louder than usual, if the oil gets dirty it has added friction and more noise. One of the most important aspects of your car is the oil, yet it is the most overlooked. Oil is the lifeblood of your Honda, let out factory trained technicians take care of your Honda.
