Honda recommends having your 2005 Honda CR-V’s motor oil changed at regular 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 engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of 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. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Honda CR-V. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

2005 Honda CR-V Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Honda CR-V? Engine oil lubricates 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 CR-V oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Honda CR-V exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. 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 damaged cylinder walls.
