    Is the gasket bad on the fuel cap causing the check fuel cap light to come on? The dealership has not stated why it comes on occassionally.
  3. White cream under oil filler cap?

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    During the most recent Polar Vortex I forced myself to venture out into our unheated detached garage to do my weekly fluid checks. As part of my ritual I always remove the oil filler cap and check its underside. Well there it was, exactly what I was hoping to not see, white cream. I immediately...

  5. "PermaCap" fuel cap available for 2015 Honda CR-V?

    I have a 2015 Honda CR-V and love it. I have a medical condition that has affected my hands and fingers and it is extremely difficult for me to properly tighten the fuel cap after refueling. Is there any sort of aftermarket "PermaCap" that is self sealing and you just need to open the access...
  6. Check fuel cap after driver's side strut replacement

    Problems & Issues
    We RARELY get the 'check fuel cap' message on our 2012-CRV (83K miles), but it started right after having the driver side front strut replaced. Would that repair get anywhere near the evap system/hoses ? We've tried re-tightening the cap, so wondering if that repair might have contributed. Thanks.
  7. Gas Cap retainer grommet ... and more!

    Problems & Issues
    Replaced my gas cap with an after market version, bad idea ... maybe. And, of course the retainer ring is too small for the new cap. I'm going to buy an OEM cap, but noticed the ones I've seen so far do not show the rubber grommet \ clamp that secures the tether to the fuel door. I have read...

  9. Pro Tip; Setting the oil cap on the wiper cowl doesn't keep the hood from closing.

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    Today I must sadly admit my minor DIY failure... It's a good practice to set the oil cap somewhere where it will prevent the hood from closing to keep you from forgetting to put it back on. On my last car, a B5 Passat, the wiper cowl worked great for this, as the firewall was at the base of...
