CRV Oil Change Question


Asked by Jan 09, 2017 at 04:49 PM about the 2016 Honda CR-V

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So, I have a 2016 CRV. Have owned it only 3 months, but already have
10,000 miles on it. Drive it long distances weekly. I got the oil changed at
5,000 miles, per recommendation. But, that was about a month-and-a-half
ago. It is now "due" for another oil change, according to mileage. Yet, the
digital display readout says 70% (nowhere close to the 15% that is the
suggested percentage for getting the oil changed). Any recommendations?
Should I just do it every 5000 miles, or wait a bit?

I wouldn't go over 5000 miles unless ur using fully synthetic oil

I use whatever the dealership puts in it. (!!!)

I do 7,500 in mine since it is mostly highway miles. 7,500 or 1 year which ever comes first. Read your owner's manual and change the oil per the manufacturer recommendation or sooner.

Every gasoline engine should be changed every 3000-4000 miles if you are not using full synthetic oil. if you use full synthetic then you change the filter every 3-4000 miles and then at 12,000 miles you change it all. Just don't use Quaker state brand oil


The 3,000 mile oil change is a thing of the past.


the answer lies in your owners manual ;)
