2006 Honda Ridgeline Oil Change Service

How Often to Change 2006 Honda Ridgeline Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Honda Ridgeline’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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 2006 Honda Ridgeline’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your Ridgeline may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, 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 go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Honda Ridgeline. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Type of Oil Does My Honda Ridgeline Need?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2006 Honda Ridgeline motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Honda has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best oil for 2006 Honda Ridgeline vehicles. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, keep the engine cool, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During your oil change service, a technician will change your Ridgeline's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Ridgeline by considering your driving style, and the number of miles on your odometer.

2006 Honda Ridgeline Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Honda Ridgeline? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Honda Ridgeline engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Honda Ridgeline 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Honda Ridgeline spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
