Re: Running without Oil During Dealer Oil Change
WHOA! I am no mechanic, but for 3-5 seconds, I think you are in the clear if the time after drain was quick.
Your plan to change the oil so often is WAY overkill. Honda provides a maintenance minder which gives you, what I call, a ballpark time frame as to when to change the oil, which I have read here, ranges from 5,000-8,000 miles.
