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 2016 CR-Z’s oil should be changed according to Honda’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your CR-Z may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, 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, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt 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.

2016 Honda CR-Z Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Honda CR-Z? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your Honda CR-Z 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 oil on my own? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform 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. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
