Your 1983 Accord’s oil should be changed according to Honda’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your Accord may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust.

Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Honda Accord. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

1983 Honda Accord Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Honda Accord engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Honda Accord engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Honda Accord oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
