Not sure how or where to get your Honda Prelude’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know the ins and outs of 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.

Your 1995 Prelude’s oil should be changed according to Honda’s recommended oil change 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 knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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 areas, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm 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.

1995 Honda Prelude Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Honda Prelude? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your Honda Prelude engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change 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 professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Honda exhaust smoke gray or blue? 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 damaged cylinder walls.
