Oil changes have to be conducted because the oil breaks down over time and doesn’t continue to perform as intended. Dirt and grime get in it from the outside air and as internal components or seals wear, and condensation can build up.
An advantage of synthetic oils is they don’t have to be changed as often, and even modern conventional oils are better than what was used previously, but it still has to be changed for the car to run efficiently.
Although most drivers are aware of the importance of an oil change at appropriate intervals to maintain the proper efficiency of their car, they may not know an oil change in a Honda is a bit different from that of other vehicles.
The difference is that certain years and models of Honda are designed for either semi or full synthetic oil, while some will still run well with conventional oil. Such information is provided in your owner’s manual, but a professional is likely to know which oil tends to work best with the specific car you drive based on recommendations, what is already in the car, and what has worked best for other owners. These are three types of engine oil we have:
If the oil is never changed or isn’t changed properly, the valves will seize up and the car won’t run long before the end of its usual life expectancy. Long before that happens there will be a loss of power and fuel economy as the engine struggles to run. Engine noises will develop, whether a constant knocking or squeals when accelerating, uncomfortable vibrations may occur, and the car will simply become unpleasant to drive. One improper oil change might cause these symptoms to present themselves even after the problem is solved with the next oil change.
