Diesel - oil change 6,250 miles.

Post by willsinc » Tue Oct 08, 2019 9:12 pm

I'm wondering if I am misinterpreting, but my service book appears to say that you need to change the oil and filter every 6,250 miles (for all diesel's 2018 and later). Can anyone advise?

Thanks

All 2019 YM Diesel HRV do require an intermediate oil change at 6250miles, this is due to having to meet the latest emission regulations since WLTP and RDE were introduced. To be able to meet these the engine has to increase the amount of DPF regeneration that the engine does and this intern causes higher levels of engine oil dilution with un-burnt fuel, therefore the oil needs to be change more regularly.

Thank you Steve_m, that makes sense. Do you know if this applies to other diesel vehicles, or is it just the HRV (just out of interest)?

I have been in touch with the Honda dealer about the 6250 miles oil change and been told to ignore it. It appears this is for Non- European models.

That is not true and your dealer is miss informed and has not read relevant bulletins from Honda.
When your engine runs away with itself due to oil dilution you may have a difficult discussion with your dealer and Honda warranty.

Might be an idea to contact Honda (in writing) asking them to confirm what the dealership has told you. State that you want the written confirmation as it is in direct conflict with your Service Booklet and, in the event of consequential engine damage, you want to ensure that you cannot be held responsible. Of course, name the dealership in your letter, and hopefully Honda will take the matter up with them!

Thanks - I have sent a message to Honda directly from the contact form on their web site, I'll update when I get a reply.

Reply from Honda:
"According to the standard Honda service schedule, your vehicle requires a routine service every 12 months or 6,000 miles (whichever comes first). For further details about the servicing, please consult your Service booklet or Owner’s Manual provided to you at the point of purchase. You can find more information about what each service includes and Honda recommended prices on our website - http://www.honda.co.uk/cars/owners/servicing.html. "

A further update, I e-mailed again and the concluding part of my e-mail:
"I think I’ve got to the stage where I think this:
• The vehicle should get an oil and filter change at 6,250 miles or 12 months whichever comes first.
• At 12,500 or 12 months the car should be serviced, even if it has had an oil change already, at which point it will get another oil change.

Is my interpretation correct?"

Their reply:
"I would like to confirm that your interpretations are correct, if you have any additional question, I would suggest you contact your closest Honda dealership. "
