How often should I service my 1998 Honda CR-V?
You want your Honda CR-V to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, your CR-V could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. There's no need to guess when it's time to get CR-V maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Just follow your 1998 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. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your CR-V running for longer, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 1998 Honda CR-V problems.
Bring your 1998 Honda CR-V to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your CR-V’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.
Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1998 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. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Honda CR-V battery, and so can frequent short drives. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty CR-V) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Honda CR-V won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.
In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 1998 Honda CR-V's engine run smoother. To learn how often Honda recommends you have the oil changed in your 1998 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. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1998 Honda CR-V.
