What is the maintenance schedule for the 1997 Honda CR-V?

Here’s Why 1997 Honda CR-V Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Honda CR-V and it'll take care of you. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your CR-V. But how do you know what service to get and when? It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine CR-V maintenance. Just follow your 1997 Honda CR-V maintenance schedule!

Honda knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your CR-V's life, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 1997 Honda CR-V problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Honda CR-V

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1997 Honda CR-V for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your CR-V's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1997 Honda CR-V. In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your CR-V may need a replacement battery sooner. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Honda CR-V battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Honda CR-V could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1997 Honda CR-V engine. To learn how often Honda recommends you have the oil changed in your 1997 CR-V, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1997 Honda CR-V? We can help with that, too!

Routine upkeep for your Honda CR-V suspension and steering system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide Honda CR-V steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Honda CR-V's steering and suspension system.

If you fall behind on routine Honda CR-V maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Honda CR-V engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Need a new Honda CR-V radiator? We can take care of that. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 1997 Honda CR-V maintenance and repairs.

So visit us regularly, or visit us urgently. Many locations are open on weekends and in the evening.

1997 Honda CR-V Maintenance Questions

Take an active role in maintaining your 1997 Honda CR-V. Get answers to common Honda CR-V maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Honda CR-V? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When should I switch my Honda CR-V to high mileage oil? If your Honda CR-V has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  •  Why are my Honda dashboard lights on? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Honda CR-V to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
