Oil Changes for 2016 Honda Fit

How Often to Get 2016 Honda Fit Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Honda Fit’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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.”

Honda recommends having your 2016 Honda Fit’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Honda-recommended oil change intervals, your Fit may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess 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 terrain, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm 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 Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Honda Fit?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2016 Honda Fit motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Honda has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best oil for 2016 Honda Fit vehicles. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During your oil change service, a technician will change your Fit's oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off important 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 habits, weather and road conditions,

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2016 Honda Fit

  • 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 runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Honda Fit engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it 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 buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. 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 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
