The gold standard for scheduling a Honda oil change in Austin, TX of every 3,000 miles is a good rule of thumb; but it isn’t set in stone anymore. Clichés aside, because of the improvements in petrochemical engineering and advancements in the materials and techniques in manufacturing automobile engines, the interval between oil changes has significantly increased. You should always consult with your vehicle’s owner’s manual for the proper service interval.
What happens if I neglect to get a Honda oil change in Austin, TX?
The quick and dirty answer is nothing good. As oil circulates through the engine of your vehicle it will start to pick up contaminants. To a certain point this is normal and is one of the functions that motor oil performs. Those contaminants and bits of particulate matter are screened out of the oil at the end of the cycle by the oil filter. Naturally, as time goes by and miles start to accumulate, that filter will start to get old and worn and clogged with all of the bad things that are trapped inside. If the oil filter isn’t changed and you keep putting off a Honda oil change in Austin, TX, that contaminated fluid will start to bypass the filter entirely and can lead to severe engine damage.
Motor oil also acts as a lubricant to keep the metal parts of the engine from directly contacting one another and also serves as a means to help dissipate heat. As the oil in your engine starts to age, it breaks down and is less and less effective and performing its true functions.
