  1. Gen 2: 2002-2006 (UK 2002-2007) CR-V
    Honda CR-V 2004 142k miles. I drove 1300 miles from Southern California up to North Dakota. Its much colder up here averaging around 20 degrees Fahrenheit and will get colder sometimes below 0 Fahrenheit. I have Castrol 5w-20 in it. I changed the oil right before I left. Two questions Why is my...
  2. Gen 1: 1996-2001 (UK 1995-2001) CR-V
    I tried changing my own oil for the first time today, and wow the previous owner must have tightened that oil filter on tight! I also had a really tough time getting my new oil filter wrench around the exhaust pipe and other stuff to actually reach the thing from the bottom, but the mess of...

    I have a 2011 CRV with about 123k on it. In the last year I noticed that occasionally when we would start it up after sitting for a while it would start fine, but a second or 2 later it would make this quick grinding noise. I haven't been able to figure out what it is. The car runs fun and...

    Hello everyone, new member here. I would appreciate your thoughts of what the issue might be and/or what I should do next. ISSUE: oil all the up the dipstick and a little bit leaking out of the oil filler cap. I know the fill was correct because I did it myself and I can wipe off the dipstick...

    Good day mates! I have a 2007 Honda CRV with a K24 manual trans and it has 234000 km on the clock. I just noticed today that after exactly 2757 km since the last oil change, oil in the dipstick is now below the upper hole mark. I have included a picture for everyone to see it. Is this a normal...

    I apologize if this has been posted before. I have a 2010 Honda CR-V lx with 80,000 miles on it. I have recently been doing my own oil changes and I have noticed that I need to add a quart of oil every month or so. I remember getting a letter from Honda about some sticky piston rings causing...
  8. Gen 5: 2017-2022 (UK 2018-2023) CR-V
    Hello, I keep getting emails from the dealership where I bought my 2018 CR-V telling me it's time for servicing but my dashboard service indicator hasn't come on and I have 30% left on my oils life. This is my first car with a service light built in so I'm not sure which one to pay attention to...

    This is a bummer Crawled under my car yesterday to do an oil change and found a small leak at the bottom of the drivetrain where the transmission and engine meets. Im guessing it is the rear main seal. A small area was coated with oil and there was a hanging drip ready to fall onto the skid...

    Hi All I was doing one of my first DIY oil changes, and when i removed the splash shield I found mysterious loose part resting on top of it: a plastic disc with a tube through the center that apparently dropped from somewhere up in the engine bay. How long it's been there, where it came from...

    I have just purchased a 2016 CR V EX L with 45,000 I have always used Mobil 1 10W30 and I see the V calls for 5W20. This is my first Honda and I want it to last a looooong time. Why does it need such a low viscosity oil?
  12. Gen 5: 2017-2022 (UK 2018-2023) CR-V
    I have found YouTubes on the 1.5l, but not the 2.4l. Do they both have a "skid plate cover" to remove to access?
  13. Performance Modifications
    I am breaking in a 2004 CRV 2.4L engine rebuild ( I installed an aftermarket oil pressure gauge to monitor pressure. I have noticed the oil pressure will jump ~10psi while driving at constant...

    Anyone know why Honda crv (or other model) don't have oil temperature display and how important to know the oil temperature. Thank you.
  15. Gen 5: 2017-2022 (UK 2018-2023) CR-V
    Purchased used 2017 crv with 18,000 miles. Have checked oil and it is above the mark, but not above the Orange tip. About a week ago I took an oil extractor and removed about 3/4 quart of oil. Checked oil 2 times since and is just below top mark, so I think my issue was a overfill day before I...

    Since I have a High Mileage Car I decided to use High Mileage Oil. I'm gonna use Castrol because it has a low phosphorous content and that will help protect the emission system. I do not want my Catalytic Converter to go bad. Better to do this than risk a failed CC.

    Does anyone run Amsoil at all? my buddies dad is a dealer and not sure if its worth switching to it or not. He was saying there is product that does 10,000 miles and 25,000 mile intervals. 25,000 seems really high to me
  18. Gen 5: 2017-2022 (UK 2018-2023) CR-V
    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...

    So this is kind of a twofer. We just took my fiance's car in to a local Honda dealership to have them do the airbag recall and change the oil while they're at it since i don't have time to do it right now. I was planning to try running some Engine Restore in her car, as its starting to consume...
