  1. Oil Consumption ISSUE??? No leaks and no blue smoke and new PCV valve

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    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...
  2. TSB for excessive oil consumption?

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    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...
  3. Service Dept service emails or dashboard service light?

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) 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...
  4. 2006 CRV losing oil

    Problems & Issues
    I recently purchased a 2006 Honda CRV used from a dealership with only 115,000 miles. When I inspected it on their lot everything looked great. I personally am mechanically competent and do everything I can myself. However, this car uses/burns/loses about 1.5 quarts a week. I drive this daily...
  5. 2019 CRV Oil leak - possible rear main seal?

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    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...

    Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    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?
  8. Does the 2.4l and 1.5l T (GEN V) have the same oil change procedure?

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) 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?

  11. Oil Extraction?????

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) 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...
  12. Decided to Change to Castrol Oil

    Gen 1: 1996-2001 (UK 1995-2001) CR-V
    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.
  13. oil

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    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
  14. Oil extractor doesn't fit dipstick hole

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) 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...

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    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...

  18. I love our CRV but can't drive it two and one half miles to work without oil dilution

    Problems & Issues
    Thankfully my Wife works far enough away to vacate the dilution. We just bought our '18 in mid November. I drove it to work for five days in a row. I checked and the oil level rose about 1/8". I made an appointment about it but my wife drove the car to work one day before. The level had...
  19. 4000 mile/4 month oil service interval: bogus or believable?

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I just took my 2018 CR-V EX in for its first oil change at 6 months/3500 miles. My Honda dealership told me it's their recommendation that all Honda owners follow a 4,000 mile/4 month service interval for oil changes. They explained that even though the Maintenance Minder recommends a much...

    Gen 2: 2002-2006 (UK 2002-2007) CR-V
    Hello everyone! So... I have an oil leak up top somewhere. I am wondering if it is the valve cover, but I thought I would ask this community in case there was a common leak that occurred up there. 2002 CRV I will attach some pictures, but it is just on the drivers side, backside of the motor...
