How Often to Get 2004 Honda Pilot Oil Changes

Need more info about 2004 Honda Pilot oil changes? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about 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 having your 2004 Honda Pilot’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Pilot in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Pilot 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, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Honda Pilot. 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 Pilot Need?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2004 Honda Pilot motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Honda has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best motor oil for your 2004 Pilot. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. In an oil change service, a technician will change your Pilot's oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Pilot by taking into account your driving style, and the number of miles on your odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2004 Honda Pilot

  • What can low oil do to my Honda Pilot engine? 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 Pilot engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Honda Pilot oil at home? 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 Pilot exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
