  1. 2007 Camshaft Pulley Replacement

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 CR-V
    Hi All, I've been reading through previous posts but can't find an answer. I have a 2007 MK3 Honda CRV 2.2 i-CTDi. The Camshaft Pulley is broken (Rattling loose, see photo attached) and needs to be replaced. Apparently I can replace this without it having any effect on the timing. I've spoken...

    Problems & Issues
    I know there's a few thread about this issue, but I haven't find a solution yet. So here's what happened. Probably a month ago I ran low on gas and the light came on. Usually I fill up at about half a tank. I made to a gas station and filled up. We drove to a store and when we exited about 45...

  6. 2003 Camshaft issues

    Problems & Issues
    Hello, first time poster. I was helping my son change his VC gasket on his 2003 this weekend due to a leak, while we were at it we thought we'd check and adjust the valves. He's had the car about a year, has 128k on it now and has been relatively trouble free. To my surprise we found...

  8. Sluggishness and camshaft sensor

    Problems & Issues
    Hi: wondering if anyone has any advice about this problem... 2003 CRV AWD etc. Some years ago the dealer persuaded me that my timing chain need replacing. That was back at about 72000 km (50,000 miles) - very early for timing chain but I now forget the problem. (ever since then I've...
  9. Petrol 2.0 CRV 2004 camshaft sensor

    Problems & Issues
    My CRV suddenly wouldn't start one morning. Cranked a bit but wouldn't run. I identified through the codes it showed intermittent camshaft sensor and camshaft sensor not inline. I bought replacement sensors but no improvement. It'll run fine with the sensor disconnected. Im thinking it's a...

    Performance Modifications
    I'm installing the camshafts on my b20Z2 CRV engine(1999) and forgot what and where the seals go. I know and have the oil seals for the timing gear end of the cam, but what about the other side? the side where the distributor goes? I forgot what, if any, seals go on that end of the shaft...I...

    Problems & Issues
    Good morning everyone, This is my first post on here so please let me know if I am asking this in the wrong section. I just picked up my CRV with 130,000. I decided to check the valves partly because they are noisy and partly because it is suppose to be done at 100K. I did the job and...

    Problems & Issues
    Hi All I have just had to replace the exhaust camshaft on my 2003 CRV 100K miles.

  14. Camshaft replace DIY instructions 2nd gen

    Problems & Issues
    Greetings, about 6 months ago went to adjust valves on 2005 with 125k and noticed significant galling on #3 exhaust lobe. After hitting the internet found out this was a fairly common problem in 03's but not unheard of in other years. At the time I saw a very nice write up on how to do this...
  15. Exact camshaft sprocket position

    Gen 1: 1996-2001 CR-V
    Hello all. I find that the descriptions for positioning the camshaft sprockets a bit confusing. Everything I read say the word "UP" should be at the vertical 12-oclock position with the TDC marks lining up with the cover marks and the pulley timing mark at #1 TDC. Yet when I see either a picture...
  16. P1009 CamShaft Code 2006

    Problems & Issues
    Just wondering if anyone experienced enough on this. My 2006 CRV started jumping a bit, the VSA light went on...and then it sort of stalled out. Thsi has happened a few times when the gas tank wasnt tight but that wasnt an issue. Had a tough time starting it without stalling and my buddy...
  17. Camshaft wear - a common Honda problem?

    Problems & Issues
    I have just been told by my Honda mechanic that the exhaust cam lobes in my 2003 CR-V are worn to a point that the valve adjustment can't be done and the camshaft needs to be replaced. Repair cost is $2,000+. I was also told that it might be more cost effective to replace the whole engine. I...
  18. camshaft lobe pitting

    Problems & Issues
    Hi. I just had my valve cover gasket replaced ('03 2.0L). I noticed that one lobe of the inner(side nearer the firewall) camshaft had numerous shallow holes on its surface. I was thinking that if this was mechanical damage, the lobe surface would be grooved not pitted. Any thoughts?
