Honda recommends changing your 2008 Pilot’s oil 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 engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust.

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.

2008 Honda Pilot Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Honda Pilot? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Honda Pilot 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 Pilot oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might 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 Pilot exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
