Oil Changes for 2014 Honda Accord

How Often to Change 2014 Honda Accord Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2014 Honda Accord? 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 2014 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 knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Honda if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt 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.

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 2014 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 2014 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, one of our techs will change your Accord’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Accord by taking into account your driving style, and the number of miles on your odometer.

2014 Honda Accord Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Honda Accord engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. 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 should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Honda Accord oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also help your car perform 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. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
