1984 Honda Accord Oil Change

How Often to Change 1984 Honda Accord Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1984 Honda Accord? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Honda recommends changing your 1984 Accord’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Honda-recommended oil change intervals, your Accord may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Honda recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Honda Accord. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Honda Accord?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Honda Accord. Honda has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the ideal engine oil for your 1984 Accord. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During your oil change service, a technician will change your Accord's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Accord by considering your driving habits, and the number of miles on your odometer.

1984 Honda Accord Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Honda Accord? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Accord’s engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Honda Accord oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Honda Accord exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
