  2. Steering stiff on cold start - seems fine once on the road

    Problems & Issues
    This morning, for the second time, I noticed that my steering on my 2001 CR-V was very stiff after I backed out of my driveway and turned the wheel to straighten up and start driving down the road.

  4. 2015 EX-L Starts fine after all night, dead after a short stop. How to test drain

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 CR-V
    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.

  10. 2014: Power Outlets Not Working; Fuses Fine

    Problems & Issues
    In the past week or two my power outlets (both of them - above the cupholders and in the center console) stopped working. Obviously I figured it was the fuse.

  15. Fine oil covering entire engine compartment

    Maintenance and Service
    Hello everyone. There is a thin covering of oil on everything under the hood on a 2008 I am looking at. It has made everything black to the touch. Dealership cannot find anything wrong. I suspect possible blow-by from the oil filler cap at one time as the cap required pliers to remove it...

    Problems & Issues
    I'm forced to drive with my brights on since they don't work on dim. All the running lights are fine on dim, just not the headlights. I've read all the posts and found no solutions. I checked all fuses and they're fine. I swapped relays with the same result. I tried a brand new light and...
