When to Change 2006 Honda CR-V Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Honda CR-V’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Honda recommends changing your 2006 CR-V’s oil 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 knock knock knock 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, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm 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.

2006 Honda CR-V Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Honda CR-V motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate excess 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? 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform 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. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
