When to Change 2013 Honda Odyssey Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2013 Honda Odyssey? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond 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 2013 Odyssey’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Odyssey 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 knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Honda recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage 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.

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2013 Honda Odyssey motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Honda has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2013 Honda Odyssey vehicles.

You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Odyssey by considering your driving habits, and the number of miles on your odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2013 Honda Odyssey

  • Should I check my Honda Odyssey motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate too much 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 oil on my own? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. 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 also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Honda exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
