    So I smelled burning oil, and looked underneath and a seemingly large amount of oil was coating the cross member behind the oil filter. It looked as if it had sprayed all the way to the back, and there was burnt oil on the exhaust. I cleaned it mostly off with degreaser soap, so it's not as...

    I attempted to connect my iPhone 8 to our CR-V Aux input using a 1/8" male to male patch cable connected to the Lightning adapter and the car's input. I played some audio from a couple different apps but the audio only came out the right speakers (very very low, almost inaudible through the...

    I'm planning on upgrading my suspensions to Silver's Neomax Coilovers. Their default spring rates for CRV specs are 14k front 12k rear. I'm still hesitant to buy this because I think these spring rates are too high. Does anyone know the stock spring rates so I could use it as a basis?

  10. Racks, Hitches, & Towing
    Hey all! I looked through a bunch of threads on this forum and am still in question of my vehicle's capabilities to tow. In May I am moving from Michigan to Boulder Colorado. I am taking my bedroom with me, and that is about it. So king-sized bed, two IKEA floor storage units (25 lbs each)...

    Hi, I'm in the middle of installing a reverse camera to my Android head unit on my 2008 CRV (UK). All wires are routed, I just need to tap in to the correct wires at the reverse bulb. Problem I'm having is there are 3 wires going to the reverse bulb (2 black and 1 green). I need to find which...

    I purchased a used 2008 CR-V EX-L 4WD back in October. So far I love the car a lot, but the gas mileage, not so much... When I purchased the car, the dash read 17.5 mpg. And the previous owner did a fair share of city driving, so I figured it would get bumped up after driving it a while...

    The digital information display between the tachometer and speedometer which displays fuel, temperature, mileage and a host of other data, has started to become erratic and flash on and off. No other dash lighting is doing this. Anyone have experience with this and how to fix it?

    Hello, I'm having trouble finding the part # for the bank 1 sensor 1 oxygen sensor. Is it an upstream sensor? Could someone also post a picture or a diagram of its location in the vehicle? Thank you!

    Hey Folks I have a dead TPMS sensor on a 2007. I purchased an Autel MX-Sensor and am going to put it in shortly. The Autel manual states the sensor weighs 18.5g with the valve stem. I'd like to do this without having to rebalance the wheel, so I need to know what the OEM sensor weighs. That...

    Hello, my 2008 honda crv EXL, 106k miles, is producing a tapping sound from the engine especially when in drive mode. My mechanic diagnosed it, checked the engine oil, and is suggesting that we first try with the following: 1. Replace Valve cover gasket 2. Replace 4 iridium spark plugs. I don't...

    Hi can you tell me the location of the Transmission Fluid Pressure Sensor / Switch B Circuit for my Honda crv 2008
  19. Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    This may have been covered before but my search results weren’t showing me what I needed to know. As we all know, the 2008 calls for 5W-20 oil. My 2012 Odyssey takes 0W-20. Obviously it’s a completely different engine, V6 vs 4, but do you think it’s ok to use 0W-20 in the CR-V? I mainly...
  20. Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    Hello all, I have a 2008 CR-V EX-L and am very tall, so I sit as far back as I can in the seat and leaned back pretty far. But even with the steering wheel extended as far out as possible, while leaning back in the seat my elbow doesn't rest well on the flip down arm rest, if it were 2-4...
