Your 1985 Civic’s oil should be changed according to Honda’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your Civic may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust.

More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Honda Civic. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

1985 Honda Civic Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Honda Civic? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate excess 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? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. 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 help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Honda Civic 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 caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
