Common Oil Change Questions
The Purpose of Oil
Oil is the true unsung hero of your car’s engine. It performs two crucial functions:
- Temperature Regulation
Essentially, oil helps the rapidly moving parts inside your engine operate smoothly, without grinding against each other, and keeps your car’s engine cool by dissipating heat.
Over time, as oil moves throughout your engine, it collects debris and becomes less effective at performing these functions.
This can cause irreparable friction damage to your engine due to the lack of lubrication. Old oil can also cause your engine to overheat and cause seal and gasket damage. This kind of damage can be very costly, so it’s best to nip it in the bud and keep up-to-date on routine oil changes.
How to Know Its Time for an Oil Change
There are many ways to know when you need a change. The easiest way is to keep an eye on your mileage.
Check your owner’s manual or contact your local technician for your vehicle’s exact needs for oil change frequency. The general rule is to change your oil every 6,000 miles, or six months, if you have a newer car.
Your car will give you several clues, as well, that indicate it requires fresh oil and needs it soon. These clues include:
- A knocking sound in the engine
- Decreased fuel efficiency
- An oil smell in the cabin
If you can’t remember the last time you got an oil change, you should probably make a pit-stop at your local service center.

Nice clean waiting area
Everything perfect but not all employees were wearing masks. With COCID-19 cases rising in Florida business should require employees to wear masks. Everything else good.
Customer: Linda Brashears
I had my car serviced here, with Victor as my service tech. He was polite, knowledgeable, and kept me informed during the process. Highly recommended.
Tire pressure problems
Customer service was great. I am on vacation from Georgia and my tire pressure light came on. Had a nail my tire, but they were able to patch it. Very kind and reasonable! Good to know they are here!
Was able to purchase a vehicle very easily here thanks to Nicks help. I told him exactly what I wanted and even was able to negotiate on the price. I actually drove 2 hours away from my home where there is a locaL Honda dealer. They work very hard for your business and I will tell anyone in my city to buy from them over the local Honda dealer who gave no wiggle room on price whatsoever. Love the car!

When my regular Honda service provider was not available, Jim took care of my van’s unexpected battery issues. He not only listened to my concerned but also reviewed my van’s service history prior to my van being dropped off. I received my van back in a timely manner. Jim called me personally the following day to make sure everything was running soothly. Thank you Honda Service Department and Jim. (I hope a Patrick will get back soon, too)

Customer: Clyde Tucker
Had a great experience buying a mini van. Matthew Tomasello is very knowledgeable about the inventory and made sure he knew what features I needed and could live with out. I’m super pregnant so he also went to the store and bought me a fountain soda which was an easy sell for me. Thanks for everything.
