Exploring Motor Oil Myths

When you purchase a new vehicle, it is important to have regular maintenance done periodically, such as having your oil changed. It is unfortunate but true that there are some myths floating around regarding motor oil and how often to change it. Your best bet is to follow the recommendations made by your owner's manual or by following the schedule suggested by our Honda service center. This will ensure you have your vehicle around for many years to come.

Motor oil does not need to be changed every 3,000 miles. At one time this was the recommendation by some service centers, but used as a ploy to get you into the shop. These days, you should follow the guidelines in your owner's manual. Oil changes are not needed prior to a long road trip unless you are going to be due for an oil change anyway. Your vehicle will function just fine with your current oil that is in your engine.
