Help your 1998 Honda Accord run newer, longer with routine oil changes. Schedule your oil change appointment today.
Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1998 Honda Accord? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”
Honda recommends changing your 1998 Accord’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Honda-recommended oil change intervals, your Accord may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Honda if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Honda Accord. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.
Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Honda Accord. Honda has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 1998 Accord. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, keep the engine cool, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During an oil change, an auto technician will change your Accord’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, check all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Accord by considering your driving preferences, and the number of miles on your odometer.
