  3. Should water inside the doors affect installing speakers?

    Problems & Issues
    Recent 3rd owner of a 01 CRV. First thing I want to do is give myself a little more volume to my music. Would like to install some good 6.5" in the doors, but noticed upon disassembly the small foam pad at the bottom of the stock speakers was clearly soaked. I assume water is coming in the...
  4. Will a higher flow air filter affect gas in oil?

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I just bought a 2019 exl awd and with all my cars, i always buy a DRY lifetime air filter with higher air flow from either AEM OR AFE. I live in california and likely wont have oil dilution issues but do you think a higher flow air filter can possibly cause oil dilution(more air more gas)? Im...
  5. Does oil brand have any affect on oil dilution?

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    For those of you who do not have the oil dilution issue, what brand and grade of engine oil do you use? I know it's a long shot but I'm just wondering if one brand of oil may be better at sealing the piston rings than another. Everything else in our vehicles should be the same other than perhaps...
  6. Does the brand and octane level of gas affect mileage?

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I was wondering whether brand (Arco, Chevron, 76, et..) and octane level of gas affect the gas mileage of my CRV LX 2018 vehicle. So I conducted a very unscientific experiment - e.g. I kept notes of my refills and mileage per refills. Obviously I don't drive the same route every day (thus the...
  7. How does using synthetic oil affect the oil change schedule?

    Maintenance and Service
    Hi Is Maintenance Minder able to take the use of synthetic oil into account? I mean, if I use synthetic oil, will Maintenance Minder still remind me at the same schedule as for conventional oil?
  8. Are there any available bumper guards that don't affect sensors?

    Hi folks, new 2017 CR-V EX-L owner here. Problem: I live in the city where some people are not so nice about creasing your bumper. I'm looking to see if anyone knows of a bumper guard that doesn't affect or inhibit the sensors from working or causing a malfunction? Thanks
  9. Air Conditioners affect on Power

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Took a quick camping trip to Waterton Lakes National Park in Alberta this weekend with my boys to help break in the new CRV so put a good 900KMs on the car and I'm pretty impressed. This little SUV handles and drives really well. When the turbo finally kicks in the power is fine and I'm even...
  10. Does Transmission fluid level affect engine power?

    Problems & Issues
    Hi, Everyone. I have a quick question regarding my 08 CRV/auto/4WD. Recently, I've been noticing slight power loss. Also, in cold mornings, the engine hesitates a little bit when going uphill. Also, I believe that there is slight shuddering at cruising 40 mph. I think the symptom started after I...

  12. Can remote starter affect headlight operation?

    Mobile Electronics
    I had a Compustar remote starter installed about 2 weeks ago on my 2005 CRV. It has been great, I really love it so far. Today though, the headlights won't work. The taillights and running lights work fine. When I switch to headlights, they go black. Could the remote starter be related to...
