When to Change 1999 Honda CR-V Engine Oil

Need more info about 1999 Honda CR-V oil changes? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Your 1999 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 knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, 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, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. 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.

What Type of Oil Does My Honda CR-V Need?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Honda CR-V. Honda has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 1999 CR-V. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, regulate engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During an oil change, one of our techs will change your CR-V’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your CR-V by considering your driving habits, and odometer.

1999 Honda CR-V Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Honda CR-V? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Honda CR-V engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Honda oil on my own? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Honda CR-V exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
