Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2016 Honda Civic? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties.

Honda recommends changing your 2016 Civic’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Civic 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, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Honda recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. 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.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2016 Honda Civic

  • What can low oil do to my Honda Civic engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate too much 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.
  • Can I change my Honda oil on my own? 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? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. 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 worn cylinder walls.
