  8. First B16 and found oil leak

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Minder light came on with B16 at 14k miles on our 2017 touring. I was surprised I needed to replace the differential fluid which was fairly easy to do. I used oem fluid and crash washers. So did that, rotate tires and changed oil and filter. When I dropped the cover, I saw some oil drips on the...

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V

    I just took my CRV in for its first Service, 2900 miles, and the mechanic found that the timing chain tensioner cover seal was leaking oil. The seal was replaced and oil cleaned up. I am curious, has anyone else experienced an oil leak like this? Also, could there be any long term effects...

    Discovered today if you are viewing the mileage screen in front of you, the 'B' trip meter shows distance traveled & mileage since the car started. When you go back to 'A', you see the numbers since the last fill-up (I have set my car to reset the trip odometer every time I fill up).
