Here at Hillside Honda, we care about the safety of our customers and the health of their vehicles and know how busy life can get. We would like you to bring you to schedule an appointment as soon as possible to bring your Honda in for an oil change at our state of the art Honda Service Department if you happen to experience any of the signs listed below.

Loud, Rumbling Noises

One of the signs that your Honda is in desperate need of an oil change is a loud engine. This is often ignored, as engines tend to make some noise when you’re driving. However, make sure to listen to hear if it’s louder than usual. The reason the loud noises can be a sign that your Honda needs an oil change is that oil lubricates the pistons, cylinders, and other components of the engine. And, if all the oil dries out or gets dirty, it can’t do its job properly, resulting in added friction and more noise.

Oil Pressure Light

When your engine detects a significant loss of oil pressure, it will warn you thorough a low oil pressure light or picture of an oil can. This light, shaped like a small oil can, comes on only when the engine is so low on oil that it can’t properly circulate. It’s tell you that the pressure is too low for the engine to operate. You need to find a safe place to pull over and turn you Honda off — immediately! oil change at Hillside Honda

First, check the dipstick to see if you have oil — this can cause low oil pressure, but that’s usually not the problem. Best case scenario is that your oil is low, you can add more, and be on your way. However, most of the time, there’s an issue with a clogged or bad oil pump.




Oil Smells In the Car

The strong scent of oil in in your Honda is something that nobody wants to smell when driving. Not only is it unpleasant, but it can create a dangerous driving situation. Sometimes, the oil odor inside your Honda is almost overwhelming if you need an oil change. The primary function of engine oil it to lubricate the various moving parts that make up an engine. When you don’t have enough oil in your system, friction builds, and eventually, there’s nothing left to keep the metal parts of your Honda from rubbing vigorously together. As a result, the old or remaining oil starts to burn into the exhaust area, causing a foul smell that’s unmistakable. If you smell a strong oil smell in your vehicle, be sure to schedule an appointment at Hillside Honda as soon as possible!
