Honda recommends changing your 2014 Ridgeline’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Ridgeline in the above table. Your Ridgeline may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Honda recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Honda Ridgeline. 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.

2014 Honda Ridgeline Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Honda Ridgeline? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, overheat, 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 Ridgeline oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce 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 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
