When to Change 1997 Honda Passport Engine Oil

Need more info about 1997 Honda Passport oil changes? Turn to 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.

Honda recommends changing your 1997 Passport’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your Passport 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 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, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Honda Passport. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

What Type of Oil Does My Honda Passport Need?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 1997 Honda Passport motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Honda has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 1997 Passport. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, keep the engine cool, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During an oil change, a technician will change your Passport's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, check all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Passport by taking into account your driving preferences, and odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1997 Honda Passport

  • Should I check my Honda Passport motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Honda Passport 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? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly 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. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
