No I don't think so because the mileage isn't all that high. Especially for a honda. Is only a little over 230,000 an its 1999

Before doing any engine work, check your PCV valve and associated hoses /crankcase vent system, it could be clogged causing the issue

That's what my husband and I think may be the issue. The car runs very well and has a strong sound motor. I've had a S-10 pickup that the rings were shot in an it had no power at all. Very sluggish

As Tom said, check the PCV valve. If it is okay it is likely that excessive wear in the engine is causing blow by which deposits oil in the air filter.
