I’m working on my friends car. Can anyone let me know about doing an oil change on a 2020 Honda Civic? The owner has had the oil changed done in the past, but doesn’t remember when. There aren’t many miles on it. Trying to determine if/when I need to do it.
I’m hoping someone with an all data membership or similar database can help with a few things:
What’s the torque specification on the drain bolt for the engine?
What’s the torque specification on the oil filter?
Is there any official suggested maintenance from Honda on this car? I’ve looked through the owners manual and found the following. I’m wondering if there’s anything else I need to be concerned with as regular maintenance, at least per Honda.
There’s a maintenance reminder light that goes off when the oil needs to be changed.
Is this just based on mileage or is there some sort of oil quality sensor that illuminates this light? I’m coming from an old car whose maintenance light just goes off every 5000 miles.
