2016 Honda Odyssey Oil Change Service

How Often to Get 2016 Honda Odyssey Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2016 Honda Odyssey? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. 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.

Your 2016 Odyssey’s oil should be changed according to Honda’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your Odyssey may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, 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, 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. 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 2016 Honda Odyssey motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Honda has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2016 Honda Odyssey vehicles. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During your oil change service, a technician will change your Odyssey's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Odyssey by considering your driving style, and mileage.

2016 Honda Odyssey Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Honda Odyssey motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Honda Odyssey engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil 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. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. 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? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
