When to Change 1991 Honda Prelude Engine Oil

Need more info about 1991 Honda Prelude oil changes? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Honda recommends having your 1991 Honda Prelude’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your Prelude may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Honda recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage 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.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 1991 Honda Prelude?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 1991 Honda Prelude motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Honda has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 1991 Honda Prelude vehicles. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, keep the engine cool, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. In an oil change service, an auto technician will change your Prelude’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Prelude by taking into account your driving preferences, and the number of miles on your odometer.

1991 Honda Prelude Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Honda Prelude engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Prelude’s 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 Prelude oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Honda Prelude spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? 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 caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
