  1. 2006 Honda CRV SE - Custom

    After driving my first gen 1997 CRV to 308,000 miles, the head gasket job I did failed, so it was time for a new ride. I bought this 2006 Honda CRV from a Ford dealer in West Palm Beach, it was "as-is" so I had some work to do to get it back in good running order. This is my daily driver and I...
  2. 2006 Ex Power steering pump replacements fail repeatedly.

    Problems & Issues
    2006 Ex 140,000mi. The original pump was leaking a lot so I figured I'd replace it. I did so in December and one week later it failed suddenly when I was turning. I took it back to the shop and they said the teeth were all stripped and they weren't sure how this happened. They replaced it and...

    Exterior
    My 2006 with 117K on the clock has paint issues. The worst is on the hood where there are two spots with fading and oxidizing paint. I've tried wax and compound without much success. Finally ran by a recommended shop to see just what the cost might be to paint and match. The quote is $605...

  13. 2006 AC; compressor or black death? how do I tell?

    Problems & Issues
    Was on a trip a while back when I discovered the AC doesn't work. A friend's Honda mechanic (many states away) diagnosed it as needing a new compressor and a new condensor. Condensor leaks. I'm guessing the compressor hasn't locked. Fan blows warm air. Heater still works well. I've popped the...

  15. 2006 CR-V how to identify engine?

    Greetings & Introductions
    I'm going to need a new (used) engine and have been told to get a UK one. I can't find the engine ID, and notice that many photos show the black valve cover with I-VTEC - mine does not have that. Is that a way to identify Japanese vs. UK manufacture? Thanks, Kevin in Minnepolis. orrenz1917 at g mail

    On my wife's car, if she pushes right in the center of the air bag cover, like right on the Honda emblem, the horn will not go off. If you push the air bag cover on on outer edge the horn will go off. I have tried to adjust the air bag position in the steering wheel mount. No change. Anyone...
