How Often to Change 2003 Honda Odyssey Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2003 Honda Odyssey? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just 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.”

Your 2003 Odyssey’s oil should be changed according to Honda’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your Odyssey may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change 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, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Honda Odyssey. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

2003 Honda Odyssey Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Honda Odyssey motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Honda Odyssey engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Honda Odyssey oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. 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 exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
