CRV Oil Change Question
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 ;)
My manual does not state any mileage per se for my 2013 Honda CRV. It just mentions Oil Life % Remaining indicator. Recommended to get it done before 5% remaining. I have read also that to plan to get it done when the 15% so that it will be changed well before the 5%. I am at 5,103 miles now. I am planning on getting it changed very soon within this week tho as its been 3 months and 2 weeks.
