Changing Your Oil
Why you should change your oil
- Proper engine lubrication
- Even wear of parts
- Optimum performance
- Prevention of engine lockup
When you change the oil in your vehicle every three months or every 3,000 to 5,000 miles, you are making sure that all of the engine parts have the consistent lubrication that they need. Oil will dissipate over time, which means there comes a point where it is unable to provide the right level of lubrication. When you bring your Honda Pilot or Honda Passport to us at Keyes Honda Van Nuys, we will make sure that we remove all of the new oil, change the filter, and then pump in fresh oil to get your vehicle back up and on the road again in no time.
What Happens if You Don’t Change Your Oil?
Without regular oil changes, you could have increased parts friction that can damage the engine or even cause it to seize up. Relying on older oil can also be dangerous because it can get dirty and gummy, making it difficult for it to work properly to provide ample lubrication. The harder that your engine works, the more fuel is used and the engine will be more susceptible to costly damage. It is much more cost-effective as a vehicle owner to pay for regular oil changes than the damage cause from oil-related issues.
