  2. Theory – Lower Oil Level, Lower Dilution

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Theory: The lower the oil level in your engine, the quicker the warm up and, by extension, less gas in your oil. The reverse can be true for heat though — the quicker the cool down when stopped, coasting. Does anyone keep their oil level lower than the max? Have you realized any benefits?
  3. Transmission Fluid level low - dealer cheating?

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    Dear all, My 2011 CRV (SE) currently has ~67K miles Just about 7 months ago, local dealer flushed and changed the automatic transmission fluid (ATF) for me. However, I just noticed that my ATF level was awfully low (which caused the gear shifting not as smooth). My questions: 1. I parked the...
  4. Oil level low after 2000 miles

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Hello all, I am not sure if this was ever addressed but have a question no one's been able to help with. My 2018 CRV EX had 80 percent oil level new and has been falling rapidly. At 2,000 miles, it went to 20 percent and is now 10 percent with 2500 miles. I spoke to Honda and they have no...
  5. Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) level sensor and Honda Minder?

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    Hi, I have a 2011 Honda CRV (SE) with about 72K miles. About 7 months ago, the dealer flushed and changed the ATF for me. However, I just noticed today (by using dip stick) that the ATF level was super low. Just curious, is there a "sensor" or something with "Gen 3" CRV, that it would actually...
  6. Owner Manual Updated - It mentions oil level

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    It shows the following now. "Under certain driving conditions, it is normal for the engine oil level to rise above the upper mark. If you have a concern, consult a dealer for details." Looks like they are trying to cover themselves, maybe?
  7. Just checked oil level and it’s on the 1st line

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Hey guys, I just checked the dip stick and the oil level is at the 1st line. The oil smells like gasoline but I’m wondering if they didn’t fill it up enough or if I’m burning or losing it. I hope they’re not under filling it to make it seem like there isn’t a dilution problem. I have the dealer...
  8. Checking oil level - the easy way?

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    So was doing my routine checks/fills including the oil. I was trying to find just the right light to check the orange tip (as mentioned in countless other threads) and squeezed it with the paper towel to start over when I may have stumbled upon the easy way (was an ah-ha moment for me - maybe...
  9. CRV 2015 Engine Coolant Level

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    Hi all, Attached is a pic of the engine coolant reservoir in my 2015 CRV. It looks really low, but it's hard to tell if there's another line there on the reservoir (for the minimum line). For other CRV owners with the same type of reservoir, does that look like a sufficient level of coolant? I...

  11. Does the brand and octane level of gas affect mileage?

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I was wondering whether brand (Arco, Chevron, 76, et..) and octane level of gas affect the gas mileage of my CRV LX 2018 vehicle. So I conducted a very unscientific experiment - e.g. I kept notes of my refills and mileage per refills. Obviously I don't drive the same route every day (thus the...
  12. oil level in a 1997 CRV

    Problems & Issues
    this is the dipstick from a 1997 Honda CRV I was always taught that the best time to get an accurate reading was after the engine had cooled down. dealership guy says when you have been using the engine. and it is still hot. the photo looks like they have been putting too much oil in. what do...
  13. View each tire PSI level?

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    How do you view each tire's PSI via the car menu? My 2007 Chevy TrailBlazer had this, so I'm sure its available in a 2018 car.

  16. What is suppose to be the charge level of the battery and behavior of Alternator

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Hi! I recently measured the voltage of the battery after 2 hours of riding in winter time and the battery was at 12V after a few hours of rest. From many sources on the web, a lead-acid battery with 12V would be at only 50% of charge. I was surprised since we runed for 2 hours at 90 kmh. I...

  18. 2009 a/c cools only when fan on level 3?

    Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    I've had this issue for a while now and the heat works just fine. If I move the fan above or below level 3, it stops cooling and just runs outside air. I'm the only owner and the car is 8 years old with 85,000 miles. This is the only thing wrong with it; I'd like to keep it but don't want spend...
  19. Oil level too high?

    Problems & Issues
    After doing the first oil and filter change on my 2011 CRV, I find the oil level slightly above the upper hole on the dipstick. Drove it a couple miles so far. What is the worst to expect? 5 quarts of 0-20W Valvoline oil were installed. I know that I can remove some, but is it necessary...
  20. Oil level increasing

    Problems & Issues
    I just bought a brand new 2016 CR-V and noticed the oil level keeps creeping up. I took it back to the dealer and he said it is normal if I make lots of short trips, which I do. I find it unacceptable driving around with the oil level over filled all the time as this will lead to premature...
