Honda recommends having your 1985 Honda Accord’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Accord 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 knocking sounds coming from the engine, 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, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, 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.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1985 Honda Accord

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Honda Accord? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Honda Accord engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Honda Accord oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. 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.
  • Why is my Honda Accord exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
