When to Change 1997 Isuzu Hombre Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1997 Isuzu Hombre? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Isuzu recommends changing your 1997 Hombre’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Isuzu-recommended oil change intervals, your Hombre may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Isuzu if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Isuzu Hombre. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1997 Isuzu Hombre

  • What can low oil do to my Isuzu Hombre engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your Hombre’s engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Isuzu oil on my own? 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Isuzu Hombre exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional 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.
