Honda recommends having your 2010 Honda Insight’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your Insight may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust.

More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Honda Insight. 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.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2010 Honda Insight

  • What can low oil do to my Honda Insight engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your Honda Insight engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Honda Insight oil at home? 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces 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 Insight 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 caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
