2008 Honda Odyssey Oil Change

How Often to Change 2008 Honda Odyssey Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2008 Honda Odyssey? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Honda recommends having your 2008 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, smell oil inside the vehicle, 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, drive in dusty terrain, adventure off-road, 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.

What Type of Oil Does My Honda Odyssey Need?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2008 Honda Odyssey motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Honda has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the ideal engine oil for your 2008 Odyssey. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, keep the engine cool, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During your oil change service, an auto technician will change your Odyssey’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Odyssey by taking into account your driving style, and the number of miles on your odometer.

2008 Honda Odyssey Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Honda Odyssey 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 too much heat, and eventually lead to Honda Odyssey 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? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also help your car perform 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.
