Oil Change Q&A for Your 2013 Honda Accord

  • What can low oil do to my Honda Accord engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Honda Accord engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Honda oil on my own? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce 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 Accord exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
