    Sorry to be a pain, but I have not had any luck with fitting anything other than the OEM dipstick down the hole. I know there is a restriction somewhere by the feel and the fact that the dipstick only goes down in one position. My borescope is too large to look down the hole and I tried to...

    Hi, I purchased a Powerbuilt 6 litre fluid extractor from Amazon recently with the idea of doing more frequent oil changes than the recommended intervals. Unfortunately, it shipped with only a 5.8 mm diameter suction tip and I am unable to insert it far enough down the dipstick hole to contact...

    Anyone know why the crv was designed this way? Is it common for vehicles to be like this? Just went through a car wash and found it very difficult to clean all the mud off the inside of the wheel wells. They seem to be lined with carpet, and not just a smooth plastic, the mud sticks to it...

    Disappointed with Husky Liners. They have a hole after just 8 months of use. I kept them (Dirty in this picture).Dealing with the vendor on getting a new pair. Should have gone with Weather Tech. Never had problems with Weather Tech liners. My previous ride had Weathertechs that were still...

    We were cleaning oil off of the engine and transmission to be able to find an oil leak, and we noticed this small open tube sticking up from the transmission. I'm worried that we got water in there and that it might hurt something. Anybody know what it is? Thanks!

    I'm looking for the trim/cover/plug for the switch hole in my dash on the driver's side. Anyone know the part number? Here's a pic.. It's the plug that fits in the 3 plug section. My crv has vsa, and 2 covers, but one is missing. Thanks.

    I bought an '08 about a month ago. There is an opening in the ceiling next to the rear dome light. It has a plastic rim, roughly t-shaped, leads to the gap between the headliner and the metal roof, and has a metal bar spanning the opening, about 1-2" long. Anyone know what this is? What should...

Yesterday I notice when I open the oil cap of the engine while engine running I felt strong pulsating air. I have heard that this usually happens when engine is getting old...

    Hello folks. My driver's side seat got a small hole in it. What is the best way to repair this problem? Does Honda sell the fabric to repair this?

    Hi All, I was driving earlier today and noticed a hole, the size and shape of a usb port to the right of the shifter. Is this supposed to be there? Was there a covering that fell off? I have no idea if the hole was there before today, but it just doesn't look like it should be uncovered...

    Hi, I hope this is the correct category to post this. I have a 2008 EL-X and have recently gotten to where we intend on using the aux input for the sound system. The problem is, while it is most convenient to leave the power and audio plugged in all the time, my wife doesn't care to have the...

    Hi All, I bought from new a Honda CRV EX-L AWD two and a half months ago. I drive 140 miles roundtrip a day and so far have 7,500 miles on it. However this morning, while idling at lights after about 65 miles, I heard what sounded like a hole in an exhaust (that low pitched air being pumped...

    So, early this morning, I got the bright idea of changing my air filter. I also had the bright idea of not removing the hose from the air box and thought I could finesse the box enough to slip the old filter out and new filter on. During the "finesse" stage, I must have pushed a bit too hard to...

    I've always wondered what is the function of the small cubby hole on the right rear wall of the cargo area (indicated by the RED arrow in the attached pic). Any ideas? Also, there is a rectangular indentation underneath the cubby hole (indicated by BLACK arrow). Is this for some sort of cross...
