1984 Honda Civic Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Honda Civic engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Honda Civic engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Honda Civic oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. 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 Civic spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? 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 caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
