  1. Valve cleaning on DI engines to prevent buildup.. "yes" or "no"

    Maintenance and Service
    Several videos on youtube exist regarding a product (CRC intake valve and turbo cleaner) that some are using to mitigate possible valve corrosion and costly cleaning down the road due to the direct injection system. I’m wondering what people’s thoughts are regarding this as a preventative...
  2. Which Engines and how long were they fitted ETC??

    Diesel CR-V
    Hi, I have just purchased a 2006 CRV 2.2 diesel Executive from a pal that has covered 160,000 miles... The car runs very well but does appear to use quite a fair bit of oil, although it doesn't smoke at all, pulls very well and the engine holds the car back on a decent so the rings should be...
  3. Oil Dilution & Turbo Engines

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Since we are told that turbo engines exacerbate oil dilution in GDI engines, is there any way we can minimize this problem by reducing the amount of time our engines are utilizing the turbo? Do driving habits matter? When is the turbo activated? When we depress the gas quickly? According to...
  4. 1999 CR-V..possible to do an engine swap and what engines?

    Gen 1: 1996-2001 CR-V
    Hi all, New to the Honda scene as I just purchased my 1999 CR-V from the original owner...but anyway, although it runs and drives good now, it has 327K miles on it so I was wondering, can you swap a different engine into these without much modifications? mine is a 5 speed manual...was thinking...
  5. Interesting Video on Direct Injection Engines - Not Dilution Related

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Very interesting background on DI engines and what Toyota did to fix a common issue that is not dilution related. In fact there is no mention of oil dilution in this video.
  6. Correct belt deflection on timing belt on B20 engines??

    Maintenance and Service
    Seems this "issue" is widespread, well at least the technique to get the tension right is widely discussed. On a correctly tensioned timing belt how much deflection should there typically be on the belt between the camshaft pulleys? Some say around 1/4" between the pulleys and the belt...

  8. Carbon deposits on GDI engines

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    I have been reading stories about other car manufacturers that have issues with carbon deposits on intake valves due to direct engines. Some people claim you need to have walnut shell blasting every 40,000 miles. Anyone think that this might be an issue with the CRV engine? Does Honda have a way...

  10. Shared engines

    Maintenance and Service
    Quick question.. which other Hondas share the same engine as the 1997 auto? I'm after a maintenance manual but the Haynes/Clymers are only for post 2001 models. I'm hoping the other 2.0 auto honda's mean I can do some engine work if there is a haynes/clymer for another 2.0 litre...

  12. For new V engines, do not manually shift to a lower gear to brake the vehicle??

    Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    Hi everyone, thanks for reading this. I was just reading a owner's manual for Mercedes C class (my sister bought one), and noticed that there is a statement in the owner's manual saying that: Do not manually shift to a lower gear to brake the vehicle. Just curious, does this rule apply to...

  16. Mk1 Engines, how to tell the difference between them + few other Q's...

    Shopping & Test Driving
    I'm considering a CR-V as my next car (moving over from a Peugeot 406). They seem to be the best compromise between an estate, and a proper 4x4, offering the higher driving position, bags of room etc. Thinking about Mk 1 CR-v's, I've been doing my research, and it seems in 1998 they upped the...
