2019 Honda Insight Oil Change Service

When to Change 2019 Honda Insight Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Honda Insight’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know the ins and outs of 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.”

Honda recommends changing your 2019 Insight’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Honda-recommended oil change intervals, your Insight may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, 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, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm 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.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2019 Honda Insight

  • Should I check my Honda Insight motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Honda Insight engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Honda oil on my own? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. 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 also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Honda Insight spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is 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.
