2013 Honda Crosstour Oil Change

When to Change 2013 Honda Crosstour Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Honda Crosstour’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at 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.

Honda recommends having your 2013 Honda Crosstour’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Crosstour in the above table. Outside of Honda-recommended oil change intervals, your Crosstour may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Honda if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Honda Crosstour. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 2013 Honda Crosstour?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Honda Crosstour. Honda has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2013 Crosstour. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, maintain proper engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. In an oil change service, one of our techs will change your Crosstour’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving style, and the number of miles on your odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2013 Honda Crosstour

  • Should I check my Honda Crosstour motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your Honda Crosstour 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 Crosstour oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. 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 Crosstour 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. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
