2013 Honda Fit Oil Change Service

When to Change 2013 Honda Fit Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2013 Honda Fit? Turn to 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.

Your 2013 Fit’s oil should be changed according to Honda’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your Fit may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm 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.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 2013 Honda Fit?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2013 Honda Fit motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Honda has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2013 Honda Fit vehicles. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During an oil change, an auto technician will change your Fit’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your 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.

2013 Honda Fit Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Honda Fit engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Honda Fit engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Honda Fit oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Honda exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
