Oil Changes for 1986 Honda Wagovan

How Often to Change 1986 Honda Wagovan Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1986 Honda Wagovan? 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, 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 1986 Wagovan’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your Wagovan may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Honda Wagovan. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 1986 Honda Wagovan?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Honda Wagovan. Honda has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 1986 Wagovan. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, regulate engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During an oil change, one of our techs will change your Wagovan’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, check all of your other 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 Wagovan by taking into account your driving style, and mileage.

1986 Honda Wagovan Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Honda Wagovan engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Honda Wagovan engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Honda Wagovan oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might 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 Wagovan 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. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
