  1. engine oil leaked from crankcase pan gasket

    1996-2001 Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen 1)
    My crv has been leak oil from engine crankcase pan gasket. So I renewed rubber gasket. Although it was still leaked from near gear box side. I doubt oil was from main crank shaft seal. If leakage from there renewal of this seal may be difficult. What should I do?

  4. Oil leaking after valve adjustment/valve cover gasket Gen1 :(

    Under The Hood / Performance
    I had my valves adjusted Monday as well as valve cover gasket replaced. Mechanics didn't say anything about the engine leaking. By Tuesday I was smelling hot chemical during my evening drive, when idle at stoplights. Thought it might have been the fixative they used on the VCG or maybe a dribble...

    So I replaced my oil pan gasket after reading many threads (still leaking...worse). I'm not quite sure what those 2 little metal rings are that were embedded in the old gasket on the 2 most inboard studs (which is where the leak is) The new gasket doesn't come with them, but you can see a...

  17. 2000 CRV exhaust B-pipe flange failed -- need gasket?

    Maintenance and Service
    At the end of August 2012 the flange on the end of the B-pipe rusted off, and the muffler swung down, though fortunately doesn't touch the ground and didn't break the bottom of the bumper. It's sorta odd that the B-pipe flange fails before the pipe rusts through. At first I was going to go get...
