  1. Burning oil?

    Problems & Issues
    I have a 2015 CRV. Last December my oil light came on. I immediately went to the dealer(service) to have it checked.

  3. 2010 CRV - P0420 Code - Oil burning

    Problems & Issues
    Hi all, I've read up on several threads related to the P0420 code, and I didn't want to hijack any of them because my situation is slightly different.

  6. Burning Plastic smell

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Has anyone experienced a smell similar to that of burning plastic, outside the car, after driving for awhile? Honda claims its the plastic cover over the turbocharger. I'm trying to discover if this is a 1-off problem or if others have the same issue. I also want to discover if this is a...
  7. Oil burning - 99 with JDM engine

    Problems & Issues
    My daughter's 99 CR-V (with automatic transmission) had a B20b (or perhaps B20z - not sure) JDM engine installed about 40,000 miles ago. The engine has now developed significant oil consumption, probably around 1qt/300 miles. Other than a small drip from the valve cover, there is no obvious leak...
  8. 2015 CR-V burning oil

    I have a 2015 CR-V AWD EX and recently had oil light go on at 48,000 miles. Mechanic said there was no oil leak and that it can be normal to burn about 1 quart every one thousand miles. I was probably two quarts low or more. Has anyone else experienced this? Thanks

  11. Burning half quart of oil every 1,000 miles

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    I'm wondering if its normal to burn a half quart of oil every 1,000 miles. Thinking that maybe it was the quality of oil I was putting in my 2010 CRV, this time I used Mobil 1 High mileage advanced full synthetic 0w20 and it is still burning a half quart of oil every 1,000 miles. Any...
