How Often to Get 1993 Honda Accord Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Honda Accord’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 1993 Accord’s oil should be changed according to Honda’s recommended oil change 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, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Honda if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Honda Accord. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

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

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 1993 Honda Accord motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Honda has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 1993 Accord. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, keep the engine cool, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During an oil change, an auto technician will change your Accord’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, check all of your other filters, refill vital car 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 preferences, and mileage.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1993 Honda Accord

  • Should I check my Honda Accord motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, 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.
  • Can I change my Honda Accord oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Honda Accord spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
