How Often to Get 1998 Honda CR-V Oil Changes

Need more info about 1998 Honda CR-V oil changes? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 1998 CR-V’s oil should be changed according to Honda’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Honda-recommended oil change intervals, your CR-V may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Honda if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Honda CR-V. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

1998 Honda CR-V Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Honda CR-V? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Honda CR-V engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Honda CR-V oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Honda CR-V spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
