    Gen 2: 2002-2006 (UK 2002-2007) CR-V
    Hey guys. Just had a big victory with the CRV. Had a crack in the block and was able to repair it with the pour-in 'stop leak' stuff. Actually worked. Let me explain: I picked up a 2003 CRV with issues. It was cheap so I can't complain. Anyway, oil was overfilled and was blowing white smoke...

  5. Exhaust Resonator cheap fix

    Problems & Issues
    2003 CR-V exhaust rattle sound under load ~1500-2000 RPM. Thought it was heat shields or broken bolt/connection but found that the noise was coming from inside the resonator. Brought to local exhaust shop and they concurred. They will only replace with OEM parts or cut it right out. I don't...
  6. Cheap, efficient window sunshades?

    Not sure whether to post this here or in the camping section, because my 2004 CR-V is kitted out for camping, complete with a foldable platform. The only thing left is shades for the windows! Any recommendations on sunshades for all windows (removable ones are fine) that will block out views...
  7. Cheap guy looking to upgrade LX wheel/tires

    Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    I have a 2014 LX with 215/70R16 tires. With the high sidewalls I can feel the tires flex on turns. Handling feels mushy. My tires are due for replacement and I'm considering upgrading my wheels at the same. I don't want to mess with anything that will throw off my speedo, TPMS, etc...

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    There are several posts on AC issues. I was going to comment on one, but thought it might get buried. 2007 with almost 150000 mi, US spec. AC started going out, at first only occasionally, then more and more until it was not kicking on at all. I flushed, checked for leakage, and charged the...

  10. cheap vinyl on CRV EXL

    Dear Honda:
    The vinyl Honda used on the 2007 Crv EXL for both the armrest and the seat sides is thin, cheap and cracks and bubbles after about three years with only moderate use. I had the armrest and the seat side re done with a matching GM heavy duty truck vinyl for 300$. I had it done at a upholstery...
  11. A stupid and cheap way to change atf

    Problems & Issues
    Here is a stupid and cheap way to change transmission oil atf. Especially for hard shifting and gunky/dirty trannys. I own a 2000 crv that shifted very hard and late. Having nothing to lose, I drained the atf with dexron 3. I changed the atf three times with a short driving trip in between the...

    Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    Morning- Just thought I'd share this - I've been looking around for parts, recently ordered a clutch slave cylinder off of majestic honda. It was 60 bucks (not bad). Well out of curiosity I typed the part number (46930-SR3-013) into google last night and a Nissin part from Sears came up for 30...
  13. Cheap Mods for an 04 CR-V

    Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    I'm a new member to this site and I drive a 2004 CR-V with 4wd. I was wondering if there are any lowering springs that you guys recommend or should I cut a coil out myself? Or instead of that are there any cheap coil overs? What less restrictive muffler would you recommend? Any air intakes or...
  14. Cheap mans headers.

    Performance Modifications
    I used to have a 01 Mercury Cougar V6. They didn't make headers, so everyone removed the the pre-cats from the exhaust manifold. Is it possible or has anyone done this on a CRV?

    Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    So i get my first Honda crv green 2001, love the car but hate the stock 205/70-r15 tires / rims that came with it. I needed to fill in the wheel wells with something bigger on the cheap. There are tons of Chrysler, Dodge caravans stock 215/65-r16 alum rims at junk yards, most with tires on...

    So I changed my front and rear pads with Cheap-o Duralast Organic pads. I think my total cost was 30 bucks and they work fine e.g. stop the car. My problem, the dust. Its ridiculous I have to clean my wheels every week at least and I even have it a bit on the doors. I am wondering if going...
  19. Cheap Front Sway Bar Upgrade ?

    Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    CRVs (at least my 2011 SE) have a 20 mm front bar. Acura's RDX has a 21 mm bar that looks like it will fit. Even though a 1 mm difference seems small the stiffness goes up with the 4th power so it is about a 12% increase in stiffness, for less than $30! The Acura p/n is 51300-STK-A01, I may...
