When to Change 2004 Honda CR-V Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2004 Honda CR-V? 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 2004 CR-V’s oil should be changed according to Honda’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your CR-V may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of 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, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. 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.

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 specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2004 CR-V. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, keep the engine cool, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During an oil change, one of our techs will change your CR-V’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s 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 style, and odometer.

2004 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 you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate excess 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Honda CR-V spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
