Honda Oil Change in Pittsburg CA
Honda Oil Change
The Winter Honda service center in Pittsburg California provides all of the automotive services and products you need to keep your vehicle in great condition. That includes oil changes, and a regular oil change is among the most ways that you can protect your Honda for many miles to come.
Why Do You Need to Change Engine Oil?
Your Honda’s engine has many moving parts that create significant friction and heat. An engine wouldn’t last long without oil to lubricate those parts and mitigate that friction. Engine oil not only mitigates the friction but absorbs much of the heat. Modern oil also contains additives that prevent corrosion within the engine and help to break down sludge that would otherwise accumulate. Oil doesn’t last forever. It takes a great deal of abuse, and it breaks down over time. If not changed regularly, the oil becomes less and less effective, and that will eventually lead to damage to your engine.
How Often Should You Change Your Oil?
How often you should schedule an oil change in Pittsburg California depends on a wide range of factors. The general recommendation varies based on the particular engine and model. As a rule of thumb for a Honda oil change, you should do it every 5,000 to 10,000 miles or once or twice a year. You can find the exact recommendation from Honda for your particular model in your owner’s manual, or you can call us, and we’ll provide you that information. There are other things to consider as well. You should change the oil at least once a year in a vehicle that sits or is used seldomly, and you may want to change oil on a more aggressive schedule than the general rule if the vehicle is driven hard and often.
Should You Choose Conventional or Synthetic Oil?
When we perform a Honda oil change in Pittsburg, we’re generally going to use synthetic oil. While conventional oil can lubricate your engine just as well, synthetic oil delivers superior performance and protection, and it will hold up better over time too. Honda also recommends synthetic oil for all of its modern vehicles. What if you have an older Honda? Well, it depends. Conventional oil may be just fine for an older Honda, but if it has high mileage, synthetic oil is generally recommended in that scenario as well.
What Is a Certified Oil Change?
A certified Honda oil change is an oil changed performed at a certified Honda service center. The difference between it and a generic oil change is that the work is performed by a factory-trained technician who has extensive experience with your particular model. In addition, when our team carries out an Honda oil change in Pittsburg, we do it in accordance with Honda recommendations. That is important for the performance and life of the vehicle and its long-term value too.
