2010 Honda Pilot Oil Change

How Often to Change 2010 Honda Pilot Oil

Need more info about 2010 Honda Pilot oil changes? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Honda recommends having your 2010 Honda Pilot’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. 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 notice an unusual amount of 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, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt 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 2010 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 parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Honda Pilot 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? 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. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Honda Pilot spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. 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, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
