check your owner’s manual in the glove box. Or you can get one online if needed. It has lots of recommended service intervals for things like:
changing timing belt (if you have one)
changing brake fluid
changing coolant
changing transmission fluid
changing plugs

Diesel cr-v?

They offer a diesel CR-V across the pond.

Glow plugs aren’t replaced until they stop functioning.

Also, they don’t all fail at once. If the engine runs on three cylinders for a short time after starting, and then starts running on four, you have a bad glow plug.
One way to get a diesel with bad glow plugs to start is to take a heat gun and blow the hot air into the engine’s air intake while someone is cranking the car.
