Oil Changes for 2017 Honda Ridgeline

How Often to Get 2017 Honda Ridgeline Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2017 Honda Ridgeline? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Honda recommends changing your 2017 Ridgeline’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Ridgeline in the above table. Outside of Honda-recommended oil change intervals, your Ridgeline may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Honda if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Honda Ridgeline. 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 Ridgeline Need?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2017 Honda Ridgeline motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Honda has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the ideal engine oil for your 2017 Ridgeline. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, keep the engine cool, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During an oil change, an auto technician will change your Ridgeline’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off essential 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 preferences, and odometer.

2017 Honda Ridgeline Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Honda Ridgeline motor oil level? 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 too much heat, and eventually lead to Honda Ridgeline engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Honda oil on my own? 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. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle 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. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
