    I wonder if anyone uses an oil drain valve instead of the supplied plug. I tried to get this on Ebay but it is deemed incompatible. Ebay item # 283097334669 F106N Quick Oil Drain Valve M14-1.5 Threads with Nipple I did check that the dia of the oil drain plug are 14mm. Is there a tried and...

    Has anyone done a drain and pump out on their CR-V. This is where you drain the pan and refill it and then disconnect the tranny return line and pump out a quart at a time? I was thinking of doing it. I don't know the full capacity of the tranny? thoughts?

    Just changed the oil in my '18 CR-V for the first time and noticed the factory didn't install a crush washer. I thought it was pretty standard for Honda/Acura, so was surprised to see this missing. I had some Honda oil drain plug crush washers, so installed one when I reinstalled the plug...

    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've read a few of these threads now. I've tried replacing the AC Relay as that seemed to be a common culprit. I'm frustrated at the cars unpredictable drain. It's going on 4 years now and has a small battery but the dealer claimed it tested ok. I was thinking of just replacing it. I've heard...

    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...

    anyone knows how to drain the windshield washer fluid aside from manually pumping the fluid out? Anyone can recommend an all season washer fluid that won't affect the sensor if there is one? Any thoughts on Rain-X All Season Windshield Washer Fluid? Thanks

    Hi guys: I think I cross threaded the trans drain plug on my 09. I replaced the crush washer, and did not over tighten, but someone I screwed it up anyway. Now I have a pretty good leak from the drain plug. There is a gap between the "block" and the crush washer - I stopped tightening at...

    Does anyone use the Sure Seal oil plug w/o ring made for the newer Honda aluminum pans?

    With the ground clearance getting smaller and smaller, I searched far and wide for a low-profile oil drain pan that will allow me to change oil without jacking up my Gen 4 CR-V. I was impressed by the Harley Davidson low-profile oil drain pan. Yes, a motor cycle oil pan. I tested it and it can...

    Hi guys: To save $90, I drained and refilled the trans fluid, and now feel like a complete idiot. Everything I have read says that the capacity is about 3 quarts for a drain and fill (slightly less). I have added about 3.5, but cannot get a reading on the dipstick unless the vehicle is cold...

    I had my battery drained twice while I was listening to the radio with my key on Accessory mode (I), not on Ignition On mode (II). My light switch is always on Auto because I like the headlights are automatically off after my key is taken out. The question I have is "Can the light switch on AUTO...

    Doing some service on my newly purchased 2000 CR-V. The manual I downloaded on line mentions a coolant drain on the radiator as well as the engine block. Could some one tell me where the block drain is located; I can't seen to find it. Thanks

    Want to buy a few of these washers tomorrow but don't know what size to get. First oil change is rapidly approaching. Can someone tell me the size to buy? TIA

    The oil drain bolt on my 09 CR-V has become slightly worn after numerous oil changes, and I recently ordered a new bolt from the dealership. I was surprised to see that it was shorter than the one that I took off the CR-V. Since I got it from the dealer, it should be a genuine Honda part. Here...
