Hello,
I am a happy owner of a Honda CRV 2.0. 2009. The car has full service history, I noticed that each service was changed oil 10w-40. Is it normal? For me they should use 5w-30.

Welcome to the forum. Check out the owners manual to see what oil you're supposed to be using. You can also look at your oil cap and it will say what oil to use.

I agree with Rick. It does not sound normal. Unless you are in a hot climate that calls for 10w40. Do not wait long as this will damage your engine if they poured in the wrong viscosity. As what Coastie said double check your owner's manual. Let us know.

If you manual says it's correct, it's correct !! No need to second guess the folks at Honda. Where are you located ?? Craig

Yes the manual does show other approved viscosity grades; however, you will note the recommended one stated on the engine filler cap.

No harm is done using those viscosities listed in the manual for your particular temperature ranges. Most usually the recommended one will cover owners usual temp ranges.

Drive on!
