When to Change 2005 Honda Accord Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Honda Accord’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Honda recommends having your 2005 Honda Accord’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Accord in the above table. Your Accord may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Honda recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Honda Accord. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Type of Oil Does My Honda Accord Need?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2005 Honda Accord motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Honda has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2005 Accord. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. In an oil change service, a technician will change your Accord's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, check all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving preferences, and mileage.

2005 Honda Accord Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Honda Accord? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Honda Accord engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Honda oil on my own? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Honda Accord spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
