How Often to Get 1992 Honda Civic Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1992 Honda Civic? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Honda recommends changing your 1992 Civic’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your Civic may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Honda if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Honda Civic. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

1992 Honda Civic Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Honda Civic motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the 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 oil on my own? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. 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 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
