  3. Zero Transmission Fluid!!

    Problems & Issues
    04 CR-V LX So, today I noticed my drive light flashing. I checked my fluids and I've found out everything was good, but the trans fluid. There is zero fluid on the stick. Some time ago I had my Honda in the dealership because the reading on my trans dip stick varied from 0-full. They couldn't...
  4. power steering fluid First Gen

    Gen 1: 1996-2001 (UK 1995-2001) CR-V
    I feel like a real newbie even asking this. In the old days ( I'm 60) There was no question. Trani Fluid or Power steering fluid went in the reservoir.TODAY with all the proprietary crap these cars have, I'm not sure whether it's a gimick or to really abide by it. So the power steering cap...
  5. Another CVT fluid change thread (2016 2WD)

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    Cliff notes: very babied SE 2016 2WD with 30k miles - vibration in drive at a traffic light, sluggish acceleration - fluid looked and smelled bad and had LOTS of metal shavings in it. After only 1 drain/refill vibration is gone and acceleration improved. Background: 2016 SE 2WD, 29500 miles...

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Hello I have a 2018 EX 1.5T AWD and was curious as to what type of diff fluid I need. I can only find that "Honda Dual Pump Fluid II" is for a 2017 model CR-V but Im not certain if anything has changed on the 18 models. I know ill need the 18 & 20mm crush washer and 35ft lbs of torque when...

    2016 CRV 2WD It only took 2.5 quarts of the Honda HCF-2 CVT fluid to get the overflow from the Check Bolt hole. Shifted through all the gears, and refilled to get the Check Bolt overflow, but was only 2.5 quarts. Vehicle was on flat surface. The owners manual says it takes 3.9 quarts...

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    Hi, I just changed my wife's CRV rear differential fluid and this is the second time. The first fluid change, I noticed the the unused Dual Pump II fluid color was like honey. For the the second time, I noticed that the color of the unused fluid is like pink or light red. I still have the...
  9. Do The Tires Have To Come Off When Changing The Brake Fluid

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    Hello Fellow CRV Owners, Because my mechanic close up his garage, I have been searching for another mechanic. My manual states to change it every 3 years. Almost every mechanic I am calling wants to know why I need to change it out regardless of how long ago it was changed. So far two...
  10. differential fluid (with AWD)

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Hello, First time user here and was wondering when most users change the differential fluid (with AWD) on their 2018 CRV AWD ? I was surprised when the dealer told me it was due, as I have 23,000KM or 14,000 miles. I changed it but was wondering about the future interval and the possible...
  11. New owner 2018 CR-V AWD Touring replacing rear differential fluid schedule?

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Maybe it is getting use to this Maintenance Minder but it has yet to go off or signal me on anything. I took it in for it's last freebie oil change at 15,400 miles and they deemed that according to the maintenance schedule it was due for a rear differential fluid change at 16K so go ahead...
  12. Honda Dealership Told Me Not To Ever Changed Power Steering Fluid

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    Hello Fellow CRV Friends, I went to a local Honda dealership yesterday to get my power steering fluid changed out. I have 122,000 miles on my 2007 CRV and it has not ever been changed. The manager in charge of the service area suggested that I just leave it alone because Honda has no...
  13. Brake Fluid at 25K miles?

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Hi everyone, I just recently flipped 2 years and 25K on my 2017 EX-L Looking at the MMI I see B 2 7, the 2 makes sense for the air/cabin filter, but a brake fluid change at 25k mile seems a bit early. Anyone else get this on their CRVs?

  15. 2017 CRV all wheel drive Rear differential fluid

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    My CRV is less than 2 years old and has only 14,000 miles (all highway miles). I just got a maintenance minder code that says I should change my rear differential fluid. It has been my experience that rear differential fluid should be changed around 30,000 miles. I contacted the dealer and they...
  16. Windshield washer fluid overfill and TPMS problems

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Very frustrated because I got my vehicle fixed after a accident at 900km so I'm not sure if somethings are operating as usual or if it's due to the accident. I filled the windshield washer fluid for the first time the other day. It was giving me a notification in the infotainment screen, which...

    Hello, I am sure this was asked more than a few times, but I am relatively new here and could not seem to have the search bar work to well for me. Nothing comes up with keywords I put in. Ended up going back and forth from googling threads on Anyway, the maintenance minder B16...

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I have a 2017 EX AWD CR-V at about 32k miles. I changed out the CVT transmission fluid for the first time using the HCF-2 fluid I picked up at the dealership. Based on the owner's manual, it said it should be 4.5 quarts for AWD CVT transmissions. At first, I poured enough (~4.5 quarts) such...
