2018 Honda Civic Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Honda Civic engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your Civic’s engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Honda Civic oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. 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 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
