How Often to Get 1991 Honda Civic Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1991 Honda Civic? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 1991 Civic’s oil should be changed according to Honda’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Honda-recommended oil change intervals, your Civic may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Honda recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt 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.

What Type of Oil Does My Honda Civic Need?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 1991 Honda Civic motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Honda has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 1991 Honda Civic vehicles.

During an oil change, an auto technician will change your Civic’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving style, and odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1991 Honda Civic

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Honda Civic? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. 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’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Honda Civic oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly 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. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
