Honda Civic Engine Oil Finder

Since 1972, Honda has had the classic Civic as a compact car in its range, which has made it into the top ten of the world's longest sellers and rolls off the assembly line in Japan, England and Turkey. The Civic is a popular choice in the compact class for sports drivers and those who seek driving fun with GT racing technology in the Civic Type R.

Since then there have been nine further generations of the Civic. In 2015, Honda started renewing its compact model range and introduced the tenth generation of the Civic as a hatchback and notchback. There are also two factory tuning models, the Type R and GT. The Civic, which was renovated in 2019 got a facelift with a new front design for the 2020 model year.

Honda initially diversified the Civic program broadly and over the years has offered several sedan variants, station wagons, vans and coupes. VTEC engines make the Civic known as an agile compact that sets sporty accents in the Golf class. This also appeals to younger compact drivers who are looking for an alternative to the mainstream European and Asian car manufacturers. And to whom Honda, with the iconic Type R, offers a model for the road that has been tried and tested in professional racing and brings technology for leisure pilots into series production.

Motor oil is a vital part of your Honda Civic's engine. It provides the much needed lubrication to many of the internal parts of an engine. One of its key job is to prevent wear and tear on the moving parts and helps keep the engine running smoothly. Without oil, the engine would cease up almost immediately.

Regularly checking and changing your Honda Civic engine oil is really important. Every time you start and run your car, very fine by-products from the combustion in the engine will be collected in the engine oil. This is one of the reasons why over time the oil goes black. If these contaminants build up too much and exceed the capacity of the oil it can have a negative impact on your car’s overall efficiency and actually effect its performance as it creates sludge and increased wear in the engine block.

Every engine oil will have its viscosity grade labelled on the packaging. This will look something like 0W-20, 5W-30 or 5W-40. This grading is used to measure how thick / fluid the oil is and help ensure you buy the right oil for your car. The lower the viscosity grade of the oil, the more fluid and thinner it will be than those with a high grade (higher numbers) which will be much less running and thick.

So which engine oil should you buy for your Honda Civic? Whether you are topping up your Honda Civic oil or doing a full change of your Honda Civic's oil it is really important that you use the correct grade of oil.
