  1. Does the 2.4l and 1.5l T (GEN V) have the same oil change procedure?

    Maintenance and Service
    I have found YouTubes on the 1.5l, but not the 2.4l. Do they both have a "skid plate cover" to remove to access?

    Problems & Issues
    Hello everyone, I'm brand new here and I hope I posted my question in the proper section. I came very close to buying a new 2019 Touring with the 1.5L turbo. In reading reviews of this car, I've been seeing that owners have been having a problem with gas working its way into the engine oil and...
  3. Oil Test Results on 1.5l Engine - It's Not Just Fuel Dilution

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    I have not weighed in on the fuel dilution until now. there is more going on than just fuel dilution. I have a 2018 CR-V EX and have had the oil professionally tested 3 times. Oil was tested by a top tier lab and interpreted by a top tier chemist. Here is what the test results show. 1. This is...
  4. 1.5L turbo after “the fix”

    Problems & Issues
    After 13,000 miles, I recently had what appeared to be my first incident with smelling gas in the cabin, dipstick and engine smelling of gas, and high oil levels. I was able to avoid driving the car for the week I had to wait for service. The car seems good to go—I’ve taken my 17 CRV for the...

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    Just Recieved This From Honda I just received this mail from Honda. Dated December 2018 - no day listed. Seems to be something they have or will be sending to all 2017-2018 CR-V owners. It is a Product Update: 2017-2018 CR-V for Software Update with A/C Control Unit Replacement; DTC P0300...
  6. 2018 1.5L oil dipstick

    Problems & Issues
    I have a hard time seeing the oil level on my 2018 CR-V 1.5L oil dipstick, does anybody else have this issue. I was wondering if you removed that orange plastic tip and have just a flat metal dipstick if that would make it easier, has anybody tried this?
  7. Very Optimistic MPG Display (2018 EX-L NAV 1.5L turbo)

    Fuel Economy and Gas Related Discussion

    Although our 18 has 500 miles. Just curious if anyone has ever cleaned their intake valves with some type of GDI cleaner through the break master cylinder vacuum line?
  9. 2018 CRV 1.5L oil filter torque

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    What is the installation torque of the oil filter on the 2018 CRV 1.5L? I know many still use the hand tight rules they have used for years but times are changing. I got used to torqueing the filter on my RAV. I was confident that it was done to spec. Though tight it always came off with no...
  10. 1.5L Oil capacity.

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    I have seen 2 work orders where the dealer claims to have used 5 qt.s of 0W-20 oil (1 on my car and 1 from a poster on Facebook). My owners manual claims capacity is 3.7 qt when a new filter is used. In my case the dipstick showed it was not overfilled. What is with the 5 qt claim?
  11. Any Performance Chips recommended for 2017 CRV 1.5L?

    Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    Hey all, looking for good quality performance chips for my 2017 CRV 1.5L. I know it's a CVT and just a 1.5L but I already have an after market air intake (not cold) and just want to spice it up a notch.

  13. 2017 LX 1.5L Internal Engine Problem

    Problems & Issues
    Hello all, Just checking to see if anyone else has experienced the same issue. My CRV problems began with a rotten egg smell for a couple days and I did not think anything of it. Afterwards, when using cruise control I noticed it had random hesitations that would not happen frequently. Then...

  17. Does the 2017 CR-V 1.5L engine have an engine start/stop system?

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    I'm considering buying a 2017 CR-V Touring model with the 1.5L engine but I don't want it if it comes with a start/stop feature that kicks in when sitting at a stop light. I know a lot of cars are being released with this technology but I don't want a car that is constantly turning off and on...

  19. Transmission Dipstick 2017 EX 1.5L AWD

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    I apoligize if already asked, but when I pulled the ATF "dipstick" to check fluid level, there was nothing there but a small ribbed rubber butt-plug. There was no extending measuring rod at all..just the short rubber plug over the transmission fill tube. Can anyone verify that this is normal...

    Dear all: This is my first post and my first brand new honda. Diving right into the topic of the day, I'm looking for your opinion on a cold air intake and/or short ram intake. I'm not looking to produce an obscene amount of power in this car, just a little boast to get the engine to it's...
