2009 Honda Pilot Oil Change

How Often to Get 2009 Honda Pilot Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Honda Pilot’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond 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 changing your 2009 Pilot’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your Pilot 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 may also need an oil change more frequently than Honda recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Honda Pilot. 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.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2009 Honda Pilot

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Honda Pilot? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Pilot’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Honda Pilot 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 exhaust smoke gray 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, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
