When to Change 2002 Honda Passport Engine Oil

Need more info about 2002 Honda Passport oil changes? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too. 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 having your 2002 Honda Passport’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics 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, 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, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm 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’s the Right Type of Oil for 2002 Honda Passport?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Honda Passport. Honda has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best oil for 2002 Honda Passport vehicles. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, keep the engine cool, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. In an oil change service, a technician will change your Passport's oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Passport by considering your driving preferences, weather and road conditions,

2002 Honda Passport Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Honda Passport? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your Honda Passport engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Honda Passport oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Honda Passport spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
