Civic Oil Life

So, what factors can impact the life of your oil? While the Honda Maintenance Minder System manages the Engine Oil Indicator as well as other important dashboard lights and indicators, things like engine load and temperature, mileage, and car and engine speed can affect your oil life. If your Honda Civic oil light flashes before your next oil change, this can mean that the oil’s additives are breaking down and you should schedule maintenance soon.
