  1. Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    It was around 0°F. I’ve never had this happen in this car before. Oil, spark plugs are new. Fluid levels are good (aside from power steering fluid). I’m thinking it’s not the battery because otherwise it would just click right? Anyone had/fixed this problem? What was it? After turning it...

    Drove my V, which I bought new and has 38,XXX miles on it, yesterday up north on the interstate for about 300 miles. As the outside temperature dropped from around 32 Fahrenheit to 10 Fahrenheit, so did my mileage, even though I was going a solid 70 mph the whole way. One would think the engine...

    What could be causing this?

    Hey folks, Just sending out a call for recommendations regarding batteries for a 2014 CRV. I find that my battery is failing me in cold weather, and while it seems to be testing fine it's failed me multiple times over the last two years in weather under -20C. I drive most days of the week and...

    I am wondering if any commenters have had issue with radiator shutters not closing in cold weather? I just had the re-call done at the end of Nov. on my 2018 CRV. I am still unsatisfied with the cabin heat and continued rise in oil level. However I noticed today that the bottom 2 shutters...

    Our 2007 is whining a bit when it is cold/wet when starting. Does this mean it is time to change the tensioner? Also the serpentine belt too? Does AutoZone have this stuff or should I get Honda parts? 216K and going strong! Dustin

    Hi, I inherited a 1998 CRV that is in real good shape. I had to move it from Alabama to Montana, so its now in a much colder enviroment. Since its turned cold weather when I start it up the headlights will not come on. I can let he engine run a few minutes and the lights come on and stay on...

    Since the fix is slow to arrive and not seaming to work... I am considering removing the top plastic panel covering the top of the radiator support and inserting a section of flat plastic sled to reduce some of the airflow through the radiator. I had a friend stuck in the middle of no where on...

    I just recently purchased a CR-V. It is in need of a lot of rehab. In this case, I'd like to revert it back to the original air cleaner assembly because I don't know enough about the CAI and have zero faith in whomever completed the mod. The reason I joined this forum and am posting is because...

    I don’t know if anyone has observed or came across situation but I feel right and left bottom corners of windshield have cold spots and would let snow and ice build up easily, which means your wiper blade on passenger side is going to accumulate snow. What is weird is there only one giant vent...

  14. Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    This morning I got a concerned text and call from Mrs. that our new-to-us 2015 CR-V (EX AWD) had "put on the brakes all by itself" and "wouldn't let me do anything. Drive, reverse, nothing." I eventually deduced that the engine had stalled, or at least that was the most likely explanation, and...

    Hi, First time post, great source of info so far on this site. My daily commute sees me dropping down a steep hill immediately from cold. Descent takes about 60 seconds. Is it ok for me to put the CR-V in 1st gear, and descend using engine braking - from cold? Revs hit about 3800 when doing...
  16. Gen 2: 2002-2006 (UK 2002-2007) CR-V
    Hope to get some help! I have a starter that turns well but makes a noise and it seem the bendix or solenoid is at fault. It does start and I have to swing it again and sometimes more attempts to get it to start. When the car is hot there is no problem, it starts perfectly. Got the brushes and...

    Hi All, new to the forum, this is my first post. I’ve recently bought a 2003 2.0 Se Sport, problem is the temp gauge permanently reads cold, doesn’t even register any temperature. Could this be a faulty coolant temp sensor or stuck open thermostat? Car runs great apart from this, no...

    Hi! Previously when cold it sometimes sputtered, but after I went 2 weeks out from the country it has been making it in every cold start, not on hot. (Since I had my V it has bad gas mileage, maybe this can be the root of the cause). Squeaky clean TB and IAC, new-ish Autolite platinum plugs...
  19. Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    My 2007 CRV has been having some issues with its AC. It starts off blowing cold air and eventually warms up and doesn’t work. Noticed the compressor clutch wasn’t engaged when this happened. I took it to a local shop and they filled my Freon, which was pretty low and the mechanic hit the clutch...

    PLEASE ANSWER 3 QUESTIONS . The goal of this poll is to determine how widespread the fuel dilution issue is in warm weather areas. the assumption is that in general, cold weather/short trip =fuel dilution.. I live in Southern Calif, how many folks in temperate climate have fuel dilution issues...
