What is the maintenance schedule for the 1991 Honda Civic?

Here’s Why 1991 Honda Civic Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Honda Civic to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Civic. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Civic, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 1991 Honda Civic maintenance schedule!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Honda, your vehicle manufacturer. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Civic running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1991 Honda Civic problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Honda Civic

Bring your 1991 Honda Civic to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Civic’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1991 Honda Civic. If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Honda Civic battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Civic stranded. Your Honda Civic won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1991 Honda Civic engine. See Honda's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1991 Civic in the chart at the top of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1991 Honda Civic? We can help with that, too!

Routine upkeep for your Honda Civic suspension and steering system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide the appropriate Honda Civic steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Components within your Honda Civic's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Honda Civic services, you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Honda Civic engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Need a new Honda Civic radiator? We can take care of that. A/C smelling musty? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 1991 Honda Civic maintenance.

1991 Honda Civic Maintenance Q&A

Take an active role in maintaining your 1991 Honda Civic. Get answers to common Honda Civic maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Honda Civic? You know your Honda Civic better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When should I switch my Honda Civic to high mileage oil? If your Honda Civic has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  • Can Honda dashboard warning lights wait? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Honda Civic in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
