Not sure how or where to get your Honda CRX’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 1988 CRX’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 CRX may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust.

Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Honda CRX. 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.

1988 Honda CRX Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Honda CRX? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your CRX’s 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 CRX oil at home? 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 professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Honda CRX exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
