2014 Honda Civic Oil Change

How Often to Change 2014 Honda Civic Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Honda Civic’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too. 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 2014 Civic’s oil at regular 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 engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, 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 at low speeds on long distance trips. 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.

What Type of Oil Does My Honda Civic Need?

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 recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best motor oil for your 2014 Civic. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During an oil change, a 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 rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Civic by considering your driving habits, weather and road conditions,

2014 Honda Civic Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Honda Civic motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, overheat, 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 Civic oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. 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 also help your car perform 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. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
