2011 Honda Ridgeline Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Honda Ridgeline? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Honda Ridgeline engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Honda oil on my own? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
