2015 Honda CR-V Oil Change

When to Change 2015 Honda CR-V Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2015 Honda CR-V? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know the ins and outs of 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.

Your 2015 CR-V’s oil should be changed according to Honda’s recommended oil change 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, smell oil inside the vehicle, or see an excess amount of vehicle 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 drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm 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 Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Honda CR-V?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2015 Honda CR-V motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Honda has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2015 Honda CR-V vehicles. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, keep the engine cool, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During an oil change, one of our techs will change your CR-V’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, check all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire 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.

2015 Honda CR-V Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Honda CR-V engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and eventually lead to Honda CR-V engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it 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. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle 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, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
