Your Honda HR-V is designed to provide top of the line performance and handling; however, to keep your car running at its best regular maintenance is key and one of the most important is changing your oil. Missing an oil change can negatively impact your cars performance and may even cause long term damage. The last thing you want is your car overheating when driving to your job in Chamberlain.
Oil change requirements can vary greatly depending on the type of oil in your Nissan. Conventional motor oil can require changes every 3,000 to 5,000 miles with synthetic oils requiring changes far less often with intervals of 10,000 to 15,000 miles advised depending on various factors such as oil makeup, the environment, and your driving habits to and from Mitchell. In general, the recommended average oil change interval is 7,500 miles. If you drive off-road, do a lot of heavy towing, or have other less common driving needs or habits, more frequent oil changes may be required.
If the oil in your HR-V needs changing, there will be signs that this is the case as bad oil greatly impacts your cars performance. These issues can include increased exhaust smoke, vibrations when driving, your cars mileage being reduced, odd noises, engine running hot, and oil change warning lights on your cars dash. Some of these issues are particularly bad as overheating can easily leave you stranded during an outing in Pierre or cause an accident.
Missing oil changes can be hazardous both in terms of your safety and your upkeep expenses. Old oil can cause sludge and other debris to build up in your engine, which can impact performance or leave your car unable to start moving you waiting for a tow home to Watertown. If left unchanged, you run the risk of having your engine overheat and paying for expensive repairs.
