  2. Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I just bought a 2019 exl awd and with all my cars, i always buy a DRY lifetime air filter with higher air flow from either AEM OR AFE. I live in california and likely wont have oil dilution issues but do you think a higher flow air filter can possibly cause oil dilution(more air more gas)? Im...

  5. Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    Is there anything special I should do maintenance wise before taking my car to higher elevation for a while? Like 5K to 10K feet? 2006 with 150K. I know the older carborated vehicles required some adjustments.

    I have a 1999 CRV with the higher compression B20Z motor, manual states 5w30 and 10w30 if driven in a hot climate. What would be the best grade for my motor that has 220,000km on the engine and is driven in a hot climate? Could I go 10W40?

  8. Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Pardon me for asking e few questionds: Why would I pay more for EX/EX-L/Touring for almost half the engine (1.5L) compared to LX (2.4L)? I know it's turbo... is it a big deal on what's basically a DD vehicle? These are the bottom line numbers: * Horse power: LX: 184HP @ 6,00 RPM...
  9. Problems & Issues
    Shouldn't the temp gauge read right in the middle/50%? Any ideas what would cause it to read higher? It reads around 60 to 65% consistently, does not fluctuate. It's really bugging me I changed the thermostat - Genuine Honda, no change to gauge, and after removing the old one, I noticed it was...

    This is my first post and I'm not sure how to successfully navigate the group yet so please bare with me. I recently purchased an 05 2wd CR-V with 105,000 miles for the wife. We both love it! The day after we bought it I drove it to work to get a good feel for it before I put her in my daughter...

    My son has a 2002 CRV with about 150K miles on it. It has run nicely for the past month (he got it used a month ago). he just noticed that when he is driving it at speed (say above 45 mph) and accelerates above 3500 rpm, the car appears to shudder and hesitate like it is not getting enough...
  13. Shopping & Test Driving
    I'm looking to buy a Gen 1 (AWD) - either '97/ '98 engine or the higher compression '99 / '01 that , according to 'net etc, has higher compression and more power. Have driven the '97 and it seems OK - only myself in the vehicle. I'm a bit concerned that the earlier engine will be underpowered...
  14. Performance Modifications
    Does higher octane gas improve performance AND gas mileage? If so, does the increase in fuel efficiency offset the increase in price per gallon? I'm really interested to see if anyone has done any research regarding this.
  15. Shopping & Test Driving
    Hello Everyone: Well, I'm about to pull the trigger on purchasing my first CRV--which will be mostly for my wife and for trips. I've found some great deals on used models, but am now completely turned around by some of the online reviews I'm reading. Peeling paint, hard seats road noise and...

    My UK 2006 (2nd Gen) CR-V shows normal tyre pressures (front and rear) and higher pressures when pulling a trailer. This is according to the picture in the door jamb. I use Bridgestone Duellers. Seems clear enough but I am beginning to wonder whether this to be taken literally, ie do I not...
