Owning a vehicle is expensive. Beyond just the financing payments and insurance, scheduled maintenance to keep your car on the road does cost some money. When you think about what’s happening under the hood of your vehicle, it makes sense that you would have to invest in its function the way a machine operator must invest in a large piece of equipment.

Oil changes are one of the most basic and regular items you must do to keep your car running and on the road. Changing your oil keeps your engine running at its tip-top performance. Additionally, failing to follow your vehicle’s specific oil change schedule can result in catastrophic damage to your engine that could leave you with a big expense as well as a dangerous situation.

Your engine has an astonishing feat of human engineering that most of us take for granted every day. Hundreds of explosions happen every minute under the hood of your vehicle. These explosions push a piston down in a cylindrical chamber. As this piston descends due to the force of the explosion, it turns a metal shaft, whose power is sent to the transmission, matched to a proper gear for your driving and turned into motion.

Because of these forces acting on metal, lubrication is necessary to prevent overheating from friction and metal-on-metal shearing that could tear your engine apart. Engine lubricates the pistons in each chamber as well as helps dissipate heat to prevent the kind of hot temperatures that can melt/warp metal parts. It is very important. Over time, your engine oil begins to break down and pick up inclusions. This can decrease functionality.

There are various factors that affect the oil service on your Honda Civic car. They are related to car collision repair services. The year, type of engine and oil type: all play into how often you should wait before scheduling service. For modern Honda Civic models which use synthetic oil, this change could be more than 5, 000 miles.

Earlier models that used standard oil start around 3, 000 miles or 3 months between oil changes. Since it can vary so there is no solid answer to it. The best thing to do is to check your Honda Civic owner’s manual. If you don’t have the manual, feel free to get your car at a nearby car collision repair service center.
