    Maintenance and Service
    Hey all. problem here and looking for the collective wisdom of the CRV Owners Club. I drove through a big mud puddle last week and the car missed under load for a few miles--I just kept driving because it was pouring out and after about 10 or 15 minutes the miss went away. The CEL flickered...

    Hey Everyone, This is my first post!! Glad to be here. Just got my 2012 CR-V EX a few weeks ago. One setting that I don't understand in the i-MID system is the "Fuel Efficiency Backlight" setting. What does this do? The manual says that it adjusts the ambient meter feature, but I'm not...

  8. P0420? Catalyst efficiency is degraded

    Maintenance and Service
    I know what the code is, I'm just wondering if there are any particular issues with Hondas and this code, or if it's just time. The car just turned 158K miles (2003 EX), and I now do a lot of short term driving, barely getting the engine up to temp before I shut it off for the day or night...

    Problems & Issues
    Hi, 1998 CR-V LX RTAWD 170,000mi I recently got a check engine light while driving on a short trip. The code read PO420, "Catalyst system efficiency below threshold." I have heard this means that the catalytic converter could have failed or be clogged. I have also heard some talk about...
