  1. 1998, possible head gasket?

    Problems & Issues
    I have a 98, and have owned it for about a week. When I drove it 70 miles on the freeway, and got off and into town, it began to overheat and if I rev it temps go down. Temps were fine on the highway. It had lost some coolant. I replaced the radiator cap, as the old one was junk, and topped off...

  12. Did Honda eliminate the electronic Radiator Louvers from the 2018?

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    I have seen a couple of videos on the 2017 that show the electronic louvers that close when the car is at high speed and low temps to block the radiator in order to reduce drag at high speeds, but I have not seen any mention of it on the 2018. I personally kind of thought this might be a bad...

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    I posted this in the mobile electronics forum, but no replies. Maybe it's specific to our generation? My Android seems to be overheating when I plug it into the smartphone USB in the console. I've never had my phone get hot like this. Don't want to ruin my phone! And I haven't figured...
