2020 Honda Accord Oil Change

How Often to Change 2020 Honda Accord Oil

Need more info about 2020 Honda Accord oil changes? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. 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.

Your 2020 Accord’s oil should be changed according to Honda’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. 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 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 go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Honda Accord. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Honda Accord?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2020 Honda Accord motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Honda has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the ideal engine oil for your 2020 Accord. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, regulate engine temperature, 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 the old oil and filter, check all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the 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.

2020 Honda Accord Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Honda Accord? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate excess 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 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. 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? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
