How Often to Change 2006 Honda Odyssey Oil

Need more info about 2006 Honda Odyssey oil changes? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than 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.”

Honda recommends changing your 2006 Odyssey’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Odyssey in the above table. Outside of Honda-recommended oil change intervals, your Odyssey may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of 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 go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Honda Odyssey. 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.

2006 Honda Odyssey Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Honda Odyssey? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine 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. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of 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 Odyssey spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
