  1. Fuel filter leaks at return line

    Problems & Issues
    Changed the fuel filter on my 99 CR-V a couple weeks ago and now I find it leaking from the flared line on the bottom of the filter. I did some searching to see if others had a solution to this same problem and came up with nothing. Four hours later and a different new fuel filter and it's...

  3. Fuel filter replacement bleeding?

    Problems & Issues
    Hi, just a quickie. I’m going to swap out my fuel filter on my 2001 petrol auto. (Very high chance it’s clogged and a new one will only do good) just wanted to double check that the system doesn’t need a bleed afterwards. I know diesels require it, but can’t find anything on petrol engines...
  4. Fuel Gauge on Instrument Cluster

    Maintenance and Service
    Hey guys, hope everyone is doing well. I've noticed in my 2005 Honda CR-V that when I fill up the gas all the way it still shows on my instrument cluster that it's not completely full? Is this is a Fuel Pump Sending Unit issue? Thanks!

    Is the gasket bad on the fuel cap causing the check fuel cap light to come on? The dealership has not stated why it comes on occassionally.
  6. Gearbox slipping or fuel pump /filter?

    Problems & Issues
    Hi, I have an automatic 2001 CR-V ES. Last week while driving for a few hours, and after a long 50mph hill, once I reached the top the power dropped and the gearbox seemed to hunt for a gear. It was jerky and pressing the throttle seemed to not do anything. It was only for maybe 20 seconds,and...
  7. Fuel Economy on 2016 CRV SE AWD not as expected

    Fuel Economy and Gas Related Discussion
    I was expecting the fuel economy to be quite good buying this CRV used from the Honda dealership at 43,000kms. however with a mix use of city and highway, im getting about 13.2L/100km. we are currently experiencing cold weather here in toronto and i could see that being an issue since heating is...
  8. Air Fuel Ratio Sensor

    Fuel Economy and Gas Related Discussion
    Actually how many sensors are there in a CRV 2009? One Mechanic told me that the 'Bank 1 Sensor 1' is to be replaced. Another mechanic said that the 'Air Fuel Ratio Sensor' is to be replaced. Are they the same?
  9. Fuel Pump (?) Running When Parked

    Problems & Issues
    I have a 2018 Touring AWD with 6K miles. On 2 occasions over the last 11 months I have walked into the garage and could hear what I assume is the fuel pump running. The noise is coming from the rear and underneath. This has happened after the vehicle has sat for several hours or even a day or...
  10. Fuel in oil

    Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    I own a 2018 crv purchased last August. I have about 1,200 miles on it...I don’t drive it much. In light of the fuel in oil problem I’m thinking about buying an Honda Extended Warranty. Would that be a worthwhile purchase? I’m looking at the 8 year one.
  11. Mk 4 Fuel Filter Replacement

    Maintenance and Service
    Hi guys, I'm aware the Mk4 Fuel filter is a complete unit tied in with the pump, but I was under the impression that the unit would last as long as the pump does or until you have issues. I am due for a service at Honda, and as part of routine maintenance for the next service they have added a...

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    Picked this up from a Facebook closed group. PDF is 2.5MB so too big to upload to this forum. If there's a workaround let me know. I've attached screen shot of first page. Engine whirling noise could require camshaft replacement.
  13. Rusted fuel lines

    Problems & Issues
    Hi - my 2000 CRV, SE (120K miles) now resides in San Diego. We moved from upstate NY. My mechanic tells me the fuel lines are badly rusted. Is this common? Should I have them replaced ASAP or now that I'm not dealing with road salt maybe it's not an issue? Thanks so much for your help!

    Problems & Issues
    I have had Blackstone Laboratories perform two comprehensive tests on my 2017 CRV oil and the results are very disturbing. The flash point of my oil is now 215 degrees, which is within the operating temperature range of the engine. This engine has 9,400 miles on it and the tests were done at...
  15. 2018 Touring AWD fuel economy (or lack thereof!)

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    After 2500 miles very disappointed in the fuel economy to date. I realize I probably need to take a longer trip, but so far the average MPG I'm getting is about 25.5 and 5 MPG worse than the 15 year old car I traded to buy the CR-V. Really?

  18. Oil Test Results on 1.5l Engine - It's Not Just Fuel Dilution

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    I have not weighed in on the fuel dilution until now. there is more going on than just fuel dilution. I have a 2018 CR-V EX and have had the oil professionally tested 3 times. Oil was tested by a top tier lab and interpreted by a top tier chemist. Here is what the test results show. 1. This is...

    I have a 2015 CRV Touring with 22,000 miles on it and I took it to my mechanic and he said I needed to get fuel injection cleaning service done. Is this normal or just a add on charge from the mechanic?
