When to Change 2005 Honda Element Engine Oil

Need more info about 2005 Honda Element oil changes? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know all about 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.

Honda recommends changing your 2005 Element’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Honda-recommended oil change intervals, your Element 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 see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Honda if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Honda Element. 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.

2005 Honda Element Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Honda Element motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Honda Element engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Honda Element 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. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Honda Element spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. 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, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
