When to Change 1991 Honda Accord Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1991 Honda Accord? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Honda recommends changing your 1991 Accord’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your Accord may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Honda recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. 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 Type of Oil Does My Honda Accord Need?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 1991 Honda Accord motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Honda has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 1991 Accord. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, regulate engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During an oil change, an auto technician will change your Accord’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Accord by taking into account your driving habits, weather and road conditions,

1991 Honda Accord Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Honda Accord motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your Honda Accord engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Honda oil on my own? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Honda Accord spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
