Honda-crv 2008, When to change the oil.

In Honda crv-2008 dash board has functionality that suggests when to have oil change and what % has been used. I have 4200 miles on my car and it showing 70% oil level. I checked with Honda dealer service dept and the guy say you should change it on every 5000 miles regardless of oil level or dashbord indicator. what is your suggestion?

Honda say thats not true and to wait until the car tells you when to change it. I have a 2008 CRV and you should and can wait till the oil say 15%! We took ours in after a long road trip for our first oil change. We had over 5K and the oil said 65%. The guy said that we did not need to bring it in. We still had change it while it was their but the car goes around 8-9 K on a oil change. A little wrench will come on and the oil life % will come on when it reach15% and will come on every time you start the car till you get it changed.

If you like a car and want good service from it 5k is the correct frequency for oil changes.

What type of engine oil should i use to topup my honda crv '05


Honda usually recommends 5w-20 oil, but if it has over 80,000 miles I usually use 5w-30. You should top off with whatever kind of oil was used at the last oil change (top regular oil with regular, synthetic with synthetic, etc...)

I jusy purchased a 2008 honda accord with no owners manuel.The car has 19,000. miles.The oil life states its at 100%. My question is do I get an oil change?


100% indicates the oil is new, or at least the oil life meter has been reset. It counts down as it gets closer to oil change time.

Have a 2005 petrol Honda CRV and the "lights on" warning buzzer has ceased to function. The handbook does not indicate which fuse might have blown. Any help on finding it would be appreciated.


Not a honda lover but its probably easier if you brought that to a shop or check under the dash board drivers side. I dont think its a fuse or relay but a little bell. Now u describe it as a "petrol" Crv if its right hand drive I would presume its located near the fuse box near the foot panels of either the drivers or maybe the passenger side. Its should have a plug attached to it. If this doesnt help buy a repair manual located at the dealer of a local parts store.

CLOCK


common problem with these clocks. you must replace the clock. my 98 crv does the same thing. i havent taken the clock apart yet but i think its a bad connection on the clock circut board. they share the fuse with the radio and or acc plug. i think they are around $225?

Reset oil change indicator


after the oil was changed the maintenance light stayed on. I did this before and the Honda dealership helped me and the trip button was the part of the solution. i tried the suggestion above and it did not work.
