2009 Honda Fit Oil Change

When to Change 2009 Honda Fit Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2009 Honda Fit? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 2009 Fit’s oil should be changed according to Honda’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Fit may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, 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, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Honda Fit. 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.

2009 Honda Fit Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Honda Fit engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and eventually lead to Honda Fit engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Honda Fit oil at home? 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 Fit exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
