  1. 2015 Dobinsons Coil Lift

    Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    Did some work to improve handling, and clearance. My favorite parts are the Megan Racing 2-way adjustable sway bars, relatively stiff in the rear, coupled with the smooth and sturdy Moog end links . They addressed the understeer and body roll when cornering, especially on those 270* highway...

    Gen 2: 2002-2006 (UK 2002-2007) CR-V
    I changed the plugs on my ‘02 today and noticed one of the coil packs is missing the bolt that secures it down. I’d like to replace it ASAP even though it’s been driving fine without for who knows how long, if it’s something I could pick up at a hardware store I’d definitely prefer that to mail...

    Problems & Issues
    Our CRV is starting to have intermittent air. We are a year outside the extended warranty. When the air fails to come on I can clearly see the clutch not engaging. If I tap it, it engages. Was going to either replace compressor or get new ac clutch and coil. It appears to replace the ac...
  5. Proper coil connector removal help

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    2010 CRV. As I get older, I'm more cautious. Going to replace the sparks plugs soon and, since it's my first time, thought I'd eyeball things ahead of time. Attempted to remove the connector a couple of times then said, nope, don't want to risk breaking anything and I'm not in a rush so I'll...

  9. Changing Spark Plugs on 2006 - Broke Coil Pack Tabs

    Problems & Issues
    I changed the spark plugs on my 2007 no issues. On my 2006, I broke 3 of 4 tabs on the coil packs by simply pushing on them to release them from the wiring harness. I would upload a photo but I am getting errors on the web site. Is there a simple fix for this? :-( Thanks
  10. Coil connectors green inserts

    Maintenance and Service
    I just changed the spark plugs in friend's 2008 CRV LX 2WD with 195,000 miles. They had been previously changed at least once. These little green rubber inserts fell out of two of the coil connectors. When I tried to reinsert them, they just didn't seem to fit correctly and then connector didn't...

    Problems & Issues
    I've got 100,000km on it and 2 months ago coming from a highway and met a heavy traffic for like half hour, the A/C stopped blowing cold air although the it still blows air.

    Will be doing the AC clutch and coil later today and wanted to remove the AC fan for more room. There is ZERO info I can find on the net about how to remove this fan and it's looking like the frame has to be removed. I would appreciate if anyone can send a link or copy of the service manual...
  14. Had one bad coil and 11 codes on my 03 CRV - Cat converter question

    Maintenance and Service
    My mechanic and I decided to replace the bad coil and see what code comes up next. It drives very smoothly, plenty of power but the check engine light did come back on. I am going in this afternoon to find out what the code is. Two important things: A) I am going to sell the car (though I love...
  15. 2000 Misfire Codes. Coil??

    Problems & Issues
    I've read the posts. Long time lurker. Daughter's 2000 CRV has misfire codes across the board. Valves adjusted. New cap, rotor, plugs, plug wires. Still get the codes after an hour or so. I haven't read an example where replacing the coil cured the problem, but seems like a likely...
  16. Spark Plug Coil Looks Too Clean

    Performance Modifications
    I replaced the plugs and adjusted the valves yesterday in my 2005. I was interested to see that the second coil looked much different than the other three. It is much cleaner and shiny. Any ideas what could have caused this? Is there anything I should do to test the new plugs to make sure...

    Problems & Issues
    I'v been troubleshooting problems on my 2000 Crv and I purchased a new ignition coil. In the process of trying to remove the old one, I began to strip one of the screws holding the coil in place. My new coil didn't come with replacement screws. How can I get it out and is there somewhere I can...
  18. CRV ac coil

    Maintenance and Service
    I was told my 2004 CRV ac coil and solenoid was cracked by honda service dept., other mechanics told me the compressor would most likely need to be replaced. My question is= does the compressor come with the ac coil and solenoid clutch or is that two separate parts?
  19. '08 w/ac compressor bearing sounds. Okay to just replace clutch, coil and bearing?

    Problems & Issues
    I have an "08 CR-V with 122K. AC went out (blew cold on and off for about a week). After a week it started making the loud bearing sound (can't post a link to the sound on you tube yet). I am planning to just replace the pulley, bearing, coil and clutch plate, as I can do it myself without...
  20. Coil springs for 2010 CR-V

    Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    I'm looking for rear coil springs for my 2010. The guy is sagging. Not bad, but enough to bother me. I found a source for them at Eaton Springs, but he's only got specs through 2009. Does anyone know if the '10 springs are different from the' 09 springs?
