2008 Honda S2000 Oil Change

How Often to Change 2008 Honda S2000 Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Honda S2000’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 2008 S2000’s oil should be changed according to Honda’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Honda-recommended oil change intervals, your S2000 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, 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 S2000. 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 S2000 Need?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2008 Honda S2000 motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Honda has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the ideal engine oil for your 2008 S2000. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During an oil change, a technician will change your S2000's oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving style, and the number of miles on your odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2008 Honda S2000

  • Should I check my Honda S2000 motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your Honda S2000 engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Honda S2000 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 S2000 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. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
