How Often to Get 2014 Honda Insight Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Honda Insight’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than 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 2014 Insight’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 Insight 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, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Honda Insight. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Type of Oil Does My Honda Insight Need?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2014 Honda Insight motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Honda has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best motor oil for your 2014 Insight.

2014 Honda Insight Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Honda Insight? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, 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.
  • How hard is it to change 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. 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 Insight exhaust smoke grayish or blue? 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, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
