How Often to Change 2021 Honda Civic Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2021 Honda Civic? 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.”

Your 2021 Civic’s oil should be changed according to Honda’s recommended oil change 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 engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Honda recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. 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.

2021 Honda Civic Oil Change Questions

  • 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, overheat, 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 with your vehicle 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 caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
