When to Change 1994 Honda Civic Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Honda Civic’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Honda recommends having your 1994 Honda Civic’s motor oil changed at regular 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 vehicle, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Honda recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, 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.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1994 Honda Civic

  • Should I check my Honda Civic motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, 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 oil on my own? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. 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? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
