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 1993 Civic del Sol’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Honda-recommended oil change intervals, your Civic del Sol may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Honda if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Honda Civic del Sol. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1993 Honda Civic del Sol

  • Should I check my Honda Civic del Sol motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Honda Civic del Sol engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Honda Civic del Sol 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. 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 Civic del Sol exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of 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, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
