When to Change 1990 Honda CRX Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Honda CRX’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond 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.

Your 1990 CRX’s oil should be changed according to Honda’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your CRX in the above table. No matter the mileage, your CRX may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Honda recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Honda CRX. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 1990 Honda CRX motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Honda has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 1990 CRX.

During your oil change service, a technician will change your CRX's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off important fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your CRX by taking into account your driving habits, weather and road conditions,

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1990 Honda CRX

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Honda CRX? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these 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.
  • How hard is it to change Honda CRX oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d 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 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. 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 worn cylinder walls.
