Hi ferndude,

I would like to confirm the following as your question is rather jumbled.

1. Vehicle does not move in D4 or D3?
2. Does it move in R, 2 or 1? If yes, while moving in 1 or 2, does shifting into D3 or D4 works?
3. Timing belt noise could be due to slack in the timng belt and I believe the mileage is 100k miles? If so, it is time to replace the timing belt if it had not been done yet.

Hello to all the Car2pros Technician,
Thank you for the reply as I have received and read the letter you have sent me. 1. The car will move at D4 and D3. 2. My car will move at D4, D3, D2 and will reverse but when I drove my car within city proper at D3 and goes to D4 sometimes it slipped that is why my car cannot move as in I was in N position so that is one problem always occur, 3. Speaking about the timing belt it had never been change so I guess it is time to change the timing belt thank you very much and hoping to hear from you again.
Sincerely,
Fern

Hello and good day to all of you, I just would like to ask about how many months will it take to change the engine oil of an automatic honda civic lxi 96? If it does not change for so many months does it affects the tune of the muffler of the car also? Hoping to hear from you again and thank you so much.

Sincerely,
Fern

Hi Fern,

Normal maintenance schedule is 7,500 miles for oil change.

Oil change would not affect the muffler, but rather if vehicles are seldom driven, the muffler would tend to rust and deteriorate more.

Performance wise, oil condition would affect it slightly if the oil is used over its recommended mileage.

Generally oil changes are recommended more on mileage rather than timed. That would also depend on climatic conditions. Humid climates with low mileages are recommended to be replaced every 6 months.
