Honda is known for making long-lasting cars, and the Honda Civic, in particular, is a long-lived legend. To help your Honda Civic last, it’s best to make sure that it gets regular oil changes. Rapids Honda is proud to provide this service to Anoka, Andover, and beyond!
The engine in your Honda Civic contains many moving metal components. If these parts were not lubricated, they would quickly become damaged from the friction caused by metal rubbing against metal. That’s where oil comes in. It keeps these parts lubricated and happily humming along. But oil begins to break down over time, and oil in poor condition won’t perform this important lubrication job. Old oil can leave sludge deposits in your engine! Before this happens, it’s best to get an oil change. Our technicians will drain the old oil from your Honda Civic and replace it with new Honda-approved oil. They’ll also replace the old oil filter with an OEM oil filter.
Conventional oil and synthetic oil serve the same purpose, but that doesn’t mean that their quality is the same! Of the two, synthetic oil is the better choice. It’s more refined, so it lasts longer and does a better job of lubricating your engine. In addition, it’s filled with detergent additives that can actually make your engine cleaner! Even if you’ve been using conventional oil in your Civic, you can make the switch to synthetic.
If you use synthetic oil and have a newer Honda Civic, it’s recommended that you get an oil change every 7,500 miles or so. Conventional oil, on the other hand, really should be changed every 3,000 miles. In addition, older engines might require more frequent oil changes.
