What Factors Impact Oil Life in My Civic?

The Engine Oil Indicator and other important lights and indicators are controlled by the Honda Maintenance Minder System. External factors that affect the engine oil and how long it will last include:

  • Load and temperature
  • Miles driven
  • Distance and duration
  • Car and engine speed

If your Honda Civic oil light comes on before its next scheduled oil change, the Honda Maintenance Minder System is alerting you that the additives are breaking down more quickly than expected.
