How Often to Change 1999 Honda Accord Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Honda Accord’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know the ins and outs of 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.

Your 1999 Accord’s oil should be changed according to Honda’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Accord may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, 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, 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, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

1999 Honda Accord Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Honda Accord? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your Honda Accord 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? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Honda exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
