  1. Gen 2: 2002-2006 (UK 2002-2007) CR-V
    Hi there, I have a bright yellow (when dry with a green hue), slightly thick consistency fluid slowly leaking into my passenger side footwell. I’m assuming it’s antifreeze/coolant from the Heater Core behind the dashboard. There looks to be 5/6 drops a day on average. I could however be totally...

    I have 2016 CRV SE with 37000 miles. It has gotten regular oil changes at the dealership. Yesterday, I turned the car on and it started shaking and jerking while in reverse. The check engine light, VSA light, electric power steering light, oil light all turned on. I shut the car off and...

    Hello, I recently purchased a 2005 CR-V EX 5 Speed. The coolant was green and of unknown origin so I decided to do multiple flushes with distilled water. Draining the coolant is a slow process that I couldn't seem to accelerate. Since the thermostat is connected to the bottom radiator...

    Hi everybody, I have a 2018 CR-V EX (with the 1.5L Turbo). With the ScanGauge plugged in, I notice that the normal operating temperature for my engine coolant stays between 80-83 degrees Celsius (176 - 181 F). I usually don't like to idle my engine for long periods of time, but on 2 occasions...

    Time for our '13 EX's change out of the radiator coolant. Hard to believe it's 5 yrs old already, but it is. Does anyone here know if you have to remove the plastic under tray to drain the fluid? I don't really want to deal with catching the old fluid and disposing of it, but, I may have to...

    I have discovered a coolant leak where the water outlet (19315-PR4-A01) bolts to the head on my 01 CRV. I am trying to find out if it gets a gasket or if I need to use gasket maker before take it off so I can have what I need on hand. Honda's parts diagrams do not show a gasket so I'm assuming...

    My 2012 CR-V has about 77,000 miles on it so I'm thinking about doing a coolant change myself. When I was in my 20's, several decades ago, I used to change the thermostat whenever I performed a coolant change in a car. Is that good practice with the CR-V as well or is it completely unecessary...

    How many gallon (Honda premix) will need for drain and refill coolant on crv 2015? Thank you.

    Hi all, Attached is a pic of the engine coolant reservoir in my 2015 CRV. It looks really low, but it's hard to tell if there's another line there on the reservoir (for the minimum line). For other CRV owners with the same type of reservoir, does that look like a sufficient level of coolant? I...

    Hi. Does anyone know the crush washer size for the coolant drain on the bottom of the engine please? I believe the drain on the bottom of the rad does not require a crush washer, but the engine drain point does. Thanks

    Hey all, so I am looking at my Cr-V and it has a rusted coolant line up top near the intake duct in the engine bay. It looks to be a simple swap in and out scenario. Anything I should be aware of? I probably will be losing a small amount of coolant and introducing air into the system, so how do...

    Can anyone tell me what is the frequency? Could not find this info on the user manual or service tracking log (which came with the car). The Haynes service manual states every 3 years but I think the interval is longer. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    Here is the situation: My car was overheating all of the sudden so I replaced the thermostat. Fluid was leaking out, the check engine light came on and it was idling weird (reving up over and over on its own) so I have a pressure test done on the coolant system and found it was in the seal of...

    I purchased a 2007 CR-V EX-L with 111K miles two years ago. I'm now at 125K miles, but I have yet to see Maintenance Minder Code 5 which is for a coolant change. I thought it would have appeared at 120K miles, but it never did. What mileage did Maintenance Minder Code 5 appear on your 3rd...

    Anyone know the factory t-stat temp in the Gen 5 CR-V 1.5L motor? I use a ScanGauge OBDII monitor and my guess on the t-stat temp is maybe 175*.
  18. Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    Does anyone know if the 2011 CRV has an engine coolant drain plug located on the engine ? I am not looking for the radiator drain plug, but the one on the engine. Also, does this vehicle have a cooling system bleeder valve someplace ? Can you tell me the locations of both the drain plug and...
  19. Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I have a ScanGaugeII plugged into the ALDL port.....it will not display engine coolant temp.....any suggestions? Thanks.

    Hi I just had starter on our 2009 CRV 181 K replaced, while access to area we noticed the heater pipe that goes into the thermostat housing then heads towards throttle body over the starter has a very small leak (green crud) on top where the O ring seal of the pipe, the start of a future larger...
