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 1996 Passport’s oil should be changed according to Honda’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Passport in the above table. Your Passport 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 see an excess amount of 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 areas, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Honda Passport. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.
Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 1996 Honda Passport motor oil: either synthetic or conventional.

You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving habits, and odometer.
