2010 Honda Fit Oil Change Service

When to Change 2010 Honda Fit Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2010 Honda Fit? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know all about motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 2010 Fit’s oil should be changed according to Honda’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. 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 vehicle, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Honda recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Honda Fit. 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 Fit Need?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Honda Fit. Honda has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2010 Honda Fit vehicles. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, keep the engine cool, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. In an oil change service, a technician will change your Fit'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 easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving habits, and odometer.

2010 Honda Fit Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Honda Fit? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Honda Fit engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Honda Fit oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. 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 with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Honda Fit 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. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
