  1. Fixing 1st Gen transmission drop out.

    Gen 1: 1996-2001 CR-V
    I have a 98 CR-V auto, and it started doing something wierd today. I was crawling in traffic, so I'd been in 1st gear for a while, and suddenly the transmission would seem to go into neutral. I tried shifting into 1st and 2nd manually, and it made no difference. When I stopped and restarted the...

  3. 2011 Sudden drop in MPG

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 CR-V
    I've had my 2011 for 5 years. I mix city and highway driving and usually average 27 mpg. I'm not a race car driver. I filled up last week and looked down this morning and saw that my fuel level was unusually low, then saw that my mpg was 24. Yes I know that's pretty darn good but I'm...

  5. Replaced fuel injectors = instant fuel economy drop?

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    A couple weeks ago, my CR-V was at the dealer a second time for the dreaded gas in oil. The first time it was deemed overfilled, so they changed the oil. This time they acknowledged gasoline in the engine oil and deemed it bad fuel injectors. After they replaced the fuel injectors, my fuel...
  6. Gas mileage drop after VTC change on '14 CRV

    Problems & Issues
    My VTC was changed last August due to the classic start up rattle. I have since put about 3K miles on it and my over the winter mileage dropped to 23.4 MPG from 3 previous winter mileages in the 26 MPG range. The car currently has 29K on it. I talked to the service manager about this recently...
  7. K&N Drop In Filter vs. CAI 2013

    Performance Modifications
    I have a 2103 with 40k miles. Has anyone noticed an increase in performance or better MPG with the drop in K&N air filter? I also was looking for CAI options for a 2013 and could not find anything decent. Seems like older gens have options but not much for the 2013. Any recommendations?
  8. RPMs Drop When Braking

    Problems & Issues
    I know, your RPMs are supposed to drop when you brake :p Okay, my 2005 CRV has treated me well the past couple of months. I got it from my mom who was about to get rid of it and I decided it was worth saving. I have a JDM engine and freshly rebuilt transmission, so it runs like a champ...
  9. OEM Cargo Tray Price Drop?

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    The only other car I've had before my current CR-V came with a cargo tray so I've never really paid attention to prices vs. car age, but does anyone know if/how quickly prices begin to drop on the oem cargo trays? Looking at ebay right now, and looks like they're ~$90. Do you think this will be...

    So i just did my timing belt, valve cover gasket, new tires(which are bigger), and have had a significant drop in fuel mileage and power/acceleration.

  11. Huge Gas Mileage Drop!

    Problems & Issues
    I have been averaging 28.5 mpg in my 2008 CRV since I got it a year ago. I did have a problem with an O2 sensor that caused a mpg drop but went back to normal when I replaced it. For the last two weeks I have been averaging 23.7 mpg. I thought it was due to carrying a kayak, but no kayak this...

    Problems & Issues
    Just a note for anyone, I had the MOT on my 02 the other day and failed on a broken rear drop link, seemed to been flapping around underneath for a while... Snapped from within the ball joint - not an easy task to get these nuts off, as they just rotate round, and you cannot get any real grip...

    My 2012 Cr-v drops revs in 2nd gear during uniform acceleration. The revs drop from about 1500 rpm to 1000 rpm and continues normal operation after that. This issue started occurring after the dealer updated my car's powertrain software after I was experiencing shudder when shifting from 2nd to...

  18. Ball Mount Drop for 2014 CR-V

    Racks, Hitches, & Towing
    Looking to install a CURT Class III hitch on our 2014 CR-V, and I'm unsure about which ball mount to order. Most recommendations say a 2" ball, which is what I'll get, but looks like there are two different ball mounts - 2" drop and 4" drop. For a stock CR-V suspension, which of these two...
