Hi, I'm Don from 1A Auto. I hope this how-to video helps you out, and next time you need parts for your vehicle, think of 1AAuto.com. Thanks.

In this video, we show you how to do an oil change on this 1998 Honda Civic with the 1.6 liter 4 cylinder engine. You'll need a 17mm socket and ratchet or wrench, a drip pan, oil filter wrench, oil filter, oil, and jack and jack stands.

From under the front of your car right here is your oil pan. The 17mm bolt right here is the drain plug. Just go ahead and remove that, and you want to make sure that you have a drip pan underneath it, and just remove that bolt, and let all that oil drain out. Once it stops draining out, put that bolt back in and just tighten it up.

Now, just above your oil pan right there, is your oil filter. Ours is white; yours might not be. You just want to put an oil filter wrench around it to break it loose. Then you can just remove it by hand. Again, you want to make sure that you have a drip pan underneath this because sometimes some oil can be trapped in behind here. Use a rag to clean the area where the oil filter came from.

Then, using some fresh oil, just put a little around the gasket on the filter. Put your new filter in place and screw it on by hand first. Then we tighten it about another quarter of a turn with the oil filter wrench.

Remove the oil cap and replace the oil. You can refer to your vehicle's user manual to see how much oil your vehicle needs. Then you want to just replace your oil cap and start your vehicle for a little. Turn off the vehicle, pull out the dipstick and wipe it off the first time. Push it back in and pull it out again. You want it to be just over that second dot. You can see ours is all set.
