When to Change 1993 Honda Civic Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Honda Civic’s oil changed? Look no further than 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.”

Honda recommends changing your 1993 Civic’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. 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, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Honda if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm 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.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Honda Civic?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Honda Civic. Honda has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 1993 Civic. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During an oil change, an auto technician will change your Civic’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, check all of your other filters, refill vital car 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 mileage.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1993 Honda Civic

  • What can low oil do to my Honda Civic engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Honda Civic engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Honda Civic oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of 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? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
