Factors that Impact Oil Life in Your Honda Civic
The Honda Maintenance Minder System in your Honda Civic controls Engine Oil Indicator percentage, as well as other crucial lights and indicators. How quickly that engine oil percentage depreciates depends on several external factors, including:
- Engine load and temperature
- Miles you’ve traveled
- How long you’ve traveled
- Car and engine speed
If your Honda Civic oil light comes on before the next scheduled oil change according to your owner’s manual or maintenance schedule, that means the Honda Maintenance Minder System is telling you that oil additives are breaking down more quickly than expected — likely due to one or more of the above factors.
