Honda recommends having your 2005 Honda Odyssey’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Odyssey in the above table. Your Odyssey may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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 long distances at low speeds. 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.

2005 Honda Odyssey Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Honda Odyssey motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Honda Odyssey engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Honda Odyssey oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. 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 Odyssey 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. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
