2009 Honda Ridgeline Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Honda Ridgeline motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Honda Ridgeline engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Honda Ridgeline 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. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Honda Ridgeline spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
