  1. 2nd gen AC system install?

    Maintenance and Service
    Am planning on replacing most of my AC system in steps. First evacuating, then several days later replacing under the dash, then several days later another part etc. The question is, will it be drive-able in between steps? Will any of these steps cause the condenser to lock? The belt to freeze?

  3. Stiff in 2nd Gear

    Diesel CR-V
    Hi I have 2006 CR-V ctdi 2.2 When I select 2nd gear it sometimes stiff and gets better when warmed up. Sometimes I feel a jolt during the change up to 2nd gear - no problems switching down to 2nd. Is there a way of lubricating the shifter socket joint without having to tear down the whole...
  4. New 2019 CR-V Touring AWD, on 2nd battrey, it's dead as the first

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Is there a issue with these? I decided to keep calling Honda Roadside instead of jumping it myself. One tow driver thought the FOB's were too close so we moved them to the back of the house. New battery still died. Is there a known phantom drain? Dealer told me to buy a trickle
  5. 2015 CR-V SE asking for a pin after 2nd battery swap

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 CR-V
    Hello y'all! I've recently changed out the battery for my 2015 CR-V SE (For you guys wondering what the hell SE is, I'm pretty sure it's a just special edition for Canada, in between LX and EX) for the 2nd time, and the infotainment screen is asking for a pin. Now I've already searched the...

  7. soundproofing a 2nd gen CRV?

    Mobile Electronics
    I like to sound proof/dampen my 06 CRV with Noico or Dynamat, unless someone can recommend a better/cheaper material. I want a quieter interior. Specifically I'd like to insulate engine noise. But anyway, my budget and skill is limited. I don't want to tear the whole car apart. But what are the...

  9. Starting to shop for 2nd CRV

    Shopping & Test Driving
    So it's been decided, the Odyssey though we love it, certain things are just too expensive to keep fighting with. AKA the power sliding doors. Plus problems with door jam switches and random little crap. Powertrain is amazing and never a hiccup. Not to mention fast as hell for a minivan...

    Off The Beaten Path
    Hello friends! I've been lurking in the comments for repair how-to's for too long, it was time to jump in. This isn't much to add besides some love for a good old CR-V and some off roading adventures, plus a little video. I bought my first CR-V from a family member for $500, same price the...

  13. New Used Owner (2nd owner) 2008 Honda CRV EX

    Greetings & Introductions
    Bought this car with 60k miles around 2 years ago, now around 85k. So far I've replaced front struts (weird because noises seemed to come from the rear), spark plugs and rear brakes. The new plugs seem to have increased my MPG slightly (around 22 MPG on the highway). Recently started having...

    My 2014 CRV AWD with 82k mi is periodically lurching into 2nd gear. Doesn't happen all the time - maybe once or twice during a 15 min ride about town. Any ideas what is going on?

  18. 2nd set of oem plugs shot at 27k miles

    Problems & Issues
    Recently I started getting what sounded like random misfires on my '06 CR-V with about 138k miles. Later it threw an engine code for a #3 cylinder misfire. An examination of the plugs (OEM---Laser Iridium #6994 IZFR6K-11), which had about 27K miles on them, revealed that the electrodes were...
