How Often to Get 1990 Honda Prelude Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1990 Honda Prelude? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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 1990 Prelude’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Prelude 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 car, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Honda if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Honda Prelude. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

1990 Honda Prelude Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Honda Prelude motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your Prelude’s 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? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Honda Prelude exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
