2016 Honda Pilot Oil Change Service

How Often to Get 2016 Honda Pilot Oil Changes

Need more info about 2016 Honda Pilot oil changes? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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 2016 Honda Pilot’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Honda-recommended oil change intervals, your Pilot may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, 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, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage 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?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2016 Honda Pilot motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Honda has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2016 Pilot.

During your oil change service, an auto technician will change your Pilot’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect all of your other filters, refill vital car 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 habits, weather and road conditions,

2016 Honda Pilot Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Honda Pilot engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, overheat, 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 Pilot oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Honda exhaust smoke gray or blue? 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, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
