1994 Honda Civic del Sol Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Honda Civic del Sol engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, 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.
  • How hard is it to change Honda Civic del Sol oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform 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. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
