  1. How to avoid Air compressor / conditioning Problems in 2004 & 2006 Crv...

    Problems & Issues
    Yes, IF he has the equipment to evacuate the refrigerant out of the system before working on it. Letting it vent to the atmosphere is illegal. If he doesn't have that equipment or can't get it, then it's time to go to a shop and have them do it.
  2. 2007 Honda CR-V Key Questions

    Problems & Issues
    ^^^ I think that is just for the remote lock/unlock, not the immobilizer. They're separate systems.
  3. 2007 Honda CR-V Key Questions

    Problems & Issues
    When a key is added to the immobilizer, I think the codes are changed in all keys. So, if a key that once worked but wasn't present at the time of reprogramming, it is a case of the immobilizer 'hearing' that key, but it says "I don't recognize you, so no start for you".
  4. My check engine light flashing cause

    1999-2001 Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen 1.5)
    Wow! Double-wow since you're in dry Arizona. Makes me thankful for the coil-on-plug ignition my 07 Accord has.
  5. Full size spare

    Tires, Wheels and Suspensions
    ^^^ A 'real' spare tire is a normal, everyday tire that can be run for thousands of miles. The temporary spares that cars have been equipped with for decades are not intended for long-term (or even high-speed) use, so they are smaller and lighter. Personally, I would not worry about having a...
  6. Remote Start Heat Issues

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    And no one here has thought of plugging in their block heater? It is far more effective and economical than remote start. (Yes, I know, block heater power outlets aren't everywhere. I'm sure there's one in your garage though.)
  7. 2007 Transmission Fluid Change

    Maintenance and Service
    2 and 1 on the transmission aren't really gears. They lock the transmission in to those gears; i.e. if you put it in 2, it will never go to 1st, 3rd, 4th or 5th gears. (Useful for launching the car from a stop on icy roads.) As racoon said above, a short drive going through all 5 forward gears...
  8. 2007 Transmission Fluid Change

    Maintenance and Service
    Not driving the car between fluid changes does nothing to remove the many quarts held in the torque converter. 100 miles is overkill, but it's better than just starting the engine and letting it idle. To truly mix old and new, you need to use all gears in the transmission, including reverse.
  9. Changing the oil for the first time

    Maintenance and Service
    I think those that say you should change the oil before the MM tells you to have never sent their oil and/or ATF to a lab for analysis. I have. I change the oil/ATF/whatever when the MM reaches 0%. For those times I've sent oil in for analysis, every time they said I could go longer, and my...
  10. 2015 CR-V HVAC Tune Up. Is this worth it??

    2012-2016 Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen 4)
    Don't all modern systems have low refrigerant cutoff switches to prevent that from happening?
  11. 2012 CRV EXL water in spare tire wheel well.

    2012-2016 Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen 4)
    Sounds logical, but may not be. If you drill any hole, that hole will rust in the future. A better solution is to find and plug the leak. More work, takes longer, etc. but is better.
  12. Honda CR-V-EX-L-2015 (Transmission issue/Wrong transmission fluid used)

    Problems & Issues
  13. How to make a CR-V in 11 minutes

    Image & Video Gallery
    From the East Liberty assembly line, how to make a CR-V. Notice how everyone is wearing white. Even the cars are white.
  14. what is the maintenance schedule for brake lines?

    Maintenance and Service
    There is no schedule. Just flush the brake fluid every 3 years.
  15. changing sparks plugs on 2006 CRV

    Maintenance and Service
    It's easy to do. Get yourself a 16mm (5/8") magnetic spark plug socket. You'll need an 8 to 10" extension too, if it doesn't come with one. If you can't find a magnetic one, the 'old-style' with the rubber insert will work. The only special tool you'll need is a torque wrench, which you might...
  16. P1259 code Variable Valve Malfunction

    Maintenance and Service
    Well, it's certainly not good. Today's project is for you to change the oil and filter.
  17. Trouble Starting 2006 CR-V, even with new battery

    Problems & Issues
    No such thing as a rebuild kit. Order all the various parts separately.
  18. 2010 CRV oil change interval

    Problems & Issues
    That's because there isn't a time or mileage interval anymore. Just wait until the maintenance minder gets to 0. If it's been one year and the MM still hasn't reached 0, then change the oil.
  19. Trouble Starting 2006 CR-V, even with new battery

    Problems & Issues
    I'm thinking starter as well. Rebuild the starter, don't replace it because non-Honda replacements tend to be junk. The copper bars on the commutator can be sanded shiny with 600-grit sandpaper & the spots between the bars cleaned out with a 'micro' hacksaw blade, and various other parts can be...
  20. Gen 2 2003: Factory radio ate a CD, radio ok.

    Mobile Electronics
    If you can, remove the radio from the car and take it apart. That's what I had to do when a friend's daughter stuffed a CD in and it just wouldn't come back out. Jammed internally.
