2009 Honda Odyssey Oil Change Service

How Often to Change 2009 Honda Odyssey Oil

Need more info about 2009 Honda Odyssey oil changes? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Honda recommends having your 2009 Honda Odyssey’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Odyssey may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine 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 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 drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Honda Odyssey. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Honda Odyssey?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2009 Honda Odyssey motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Honda has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2009 Odyssey.

In an oil change service, a technician will change your Odyssey's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, refill vital car fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Odyssey by considering your driving style, weather and road conditions,

2009 Honda Odyssey Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Honda Odyssey engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Odyssey’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my 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 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Honda Odyssey spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
