How Often to Get 2006 Honda Accord Oil Changes

Need more info about 2006 Honda Accord oil changes? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Honda recommends having your 2006 Honda Accord’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your Accord may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Honda recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. 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 Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Honda Accord?

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 recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the ideal engine oil for your 2006 Accord. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, keep the engine cool, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During an oil change, a technician will change your Accord's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, check all of your other filters, top-off important 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 style, weather and road conditions,

2006 Honda Accord Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Honda Accord motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Honda Accord engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Honda Accord oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Honda exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
