When to Change 2002 Honda CR-V Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Honda CR-V’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about motor oil, too. 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.

Honda recommends having your 2002 Honda CR-V’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your CR-V may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Honda recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Honda CR-V. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

2002 Honda CR-V Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Honda CR-V? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your CR-V’s engine to fail. 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? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Honda CR-V exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
