2013 Honda CR-Z Oil Change

How Often to Get 2013 Honda CR-Z Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Honda CR-Z’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than 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 2013 CR-Z’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your CR-Z in the above table. Your CR-Z 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, 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, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Honda CR-Z. 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-Z Need?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2013 Honda CR-Z motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Honda has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2013 CR-Z. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, keep the engine cool, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. In an oil change service, an auto technician will change your CR-Z’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your CR-Z by taking into account your driving style, and odometer.

2013 Honda CR-Z Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Honda CR-Z motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your CR-Z’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Honda oil on my own? 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 exhaust smoke gray 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 caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
