How Often to Get 2014 Honda CR-Z Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Honda CR-Z’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than 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.

Honda recommends having your 2014 Honda CR-Z’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your CR-Z 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 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, drive in dusty terrain, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Honda CR-Z. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

2014 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, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Honda CR-Z engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Honda CR-Z oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Honda CR-Z spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? 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 old cylinder walls.
