  1. transmission fill not to spec

    Problems & Issues
    Hello. I changed the transmission fluid in my 2015 CR V all wheel drive CVT transmission. I drained 4.5 quarts but can only add 3.5 quarts. Went through the gears and could only add 1 oz. Drove a country block (about 5 miles) and could not add any more fluid. I have changed the transmission...
  2. Does your fuel gauge marker line read full after fill up?

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    I’ve noticed this on my 2018, every time I fill up the gas tank all the way, the fuel gauge bar does not go all the way on the bar to show the tank is 100% full. The marker line stays one bar below the entire gauge all the time. It goes past the “F” mark but the digital marker leaves one bar...
  3. Cannot fill passed 3/4ths tank

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    FINAL UPDATE*** Thought I ditched you guys didn’t you. Anyhow, after using a test sample of 6 refuels trying a methodology of: assuming the gas is pumping too fast, or the dispenser nozzle is too long, or the CRV’s gas pipe is at an angle at which is prone to giving false readings I have...

  5. ATF Drain and Fill - Big time screw up

    Maintenance and Service
    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...
  6. ATF fluid drain and fill question - am I a boob?

    Maintenance and Service
    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...
  7. Used Oil Analysis of factory fill, '15 CR-V

    Maintenance and Service
    After reading many threads arguing when to dump the factory fill, OLM algorithms, measurable composition of Honda's factory oil and fuel dilution, I could not resist spending $38 for this inital UOA, knowing that actual data will reinforce some views and be dismissed by others, and that some...

  10. Way Too Much Tranny Fluid in Factory Fill?

    Problems & Issues
    Yesterday I performed a tranny fluid change on my 2015 CR-V. Given the way automatics break in I thought it would be a good idea to get the original fill out of the tranny before 10,000 miles. Per the owners manual the capacity of the AWD CVT is 4.5 quarts. Given that Honda recommends a 3...

    Problems & Issues
    Hi all. Recently got the "check fuel cap" message and whilst staring at the cap and the filler tube. I noticed that there is no metal flap in the filler tube. I know some cars have it and never really took notice until now on the CRV (2010 LX). Can anyone else confirm whether or not there...

  14. Most gas used (gallons) to fill tank Gen 4

    Fuel Economy and Gas Related Discussion
    What is the most gas (US gallons) you have used to fill your Gen 4 gas tank? At 15.3 max capacity I have never filled more than 13.66 gals. So I assume there is a least 1 gal still in the tank.
  15. 2006 CRV Road Noise and Unable to fill gas tank

    Problems & Issues
    I have a 2006 CRV and have had 2 problems ever since I bought it brand new. One is that I can't fill the gas tank full. When the nozzle cuts off, if I have exactly the right nozzle I can squeeze in another 4 gallons over a 10 minute (YES, 10 MINUTES) period. Any suggestions? The other...
  16. EX-L Storage box to fill the empty space in front row

    I just bought a 2011 EX-L, and looks like the EX-L model has a lot of space in between the front seats. EX-Lmodel does not have a collapsible tray (like LX, EX) nor does it have a storage box cum hand rest like I am used to in my other cars. That space is just not utilized and lies there, just...

After a couple of kilometers driving, one bar...
