    I have 2016 CRV SE with 37000 miles. It has gotten regular oil changes at the dealership. Yesterday, I turned the car on and it started shaking and jerking while in reverse. The check engine light, VSA light, electric power steering light, oil light all turned on. I shut the car off and...

    I just changed the spark plugs in my 2012 CR-V, which has close to 85,000 miles on it, with a new set of NGK's. The old spark plugs look to be in relatively good condition, except for the area around the ceramic part of the pkug. Please see the attached images. Is the discoloration due to...

    Good day! Today I received 4 spark plugs ordered from ebay for my 2014 CR-V. My manual indicates that the OEM NGK plugs are # ILZKR7B-11S, Honda part # 12290-R40-A01. I did receive NGK with the correct part number, but the individual boxes (Honda) indicate a different Honda PN: 12290-R48-H01...

    Hey guys, I'm probably not the only one with a 4th gen getting up there in miles so hopefully this is well-timed: Really easy, as it is on any Honda 4-banger. Should take you ~20 minutes. Any questions, feel free to ask. -Tim

    Anyone on here have personal experience ordering the NGK iridium plugs on amazon? Worried about the annoyance of receiving counterfeits, although if they’re legit I much prefer their price tag. Thanks

    I don’t believe the plugs have ever been changed (130,000 miles) now next on the list of to do. Do the coils need to be changed as well? Thanks.

    I was underneath my CRV and I saw these 2 plugs. They are not connected, but they look like they should be. But, they don't fit together. At the bottom of the pic is the driver's side CV axle. The alternator is on the left. The plug on the left is light blue. It was by itself hooked on to...

    2011 CRV w/105,000 miles. Got 30.1 MPG on last tank. Took it in for my oil change and they tried to sell me on new spark plugs and a new drive belt. Should I take the plunge on either? Both? Thanks for running a great forum. Lab in Texas

    Hi all, I have a 2007 and I wanted to know of a way to find out the OEM spark plugs make and model. I know, it seems rudimentary, but there are several options and choices for replacement plugs, so I wanted to compare some to the OEM recommended plugs. Thanks! And I feel like a noob when using...

    Can someone point me to the thread that discussed this. I've run out of words/phrases to enter into the search function. I know that the "labeled" plug is the tranny fluid fill hole, but what is that "unlabeled" rubber plug for? Thanks.:headscratch:

  14. Gen 1: 1996-2001 (UK 1995-2001) CR-V
    Can anybody help me with what the OEM plugs(and gap just to make sure) and wires are? I've had the car about 5 years now, and I'm trying to do some maintanence work on it this year to prolong the life a bit longer since I really don't have the money to get another vehicle anytime soon. Thank you...

    Hey all - I have an '02 CRV and I was just changing the plugs (I bought it recently) and I noticed the spark plugs are super white! I know these cars are designed to run lean, but should the spark plugs really be ghost white? I'm trying to diagnose a P0420 catalytic code. I've passed an...

    1--Speaking of transmission fluid and power steering fluid for a 1998 Crv--- Do you HAVE to use Honda transmission fluid and Honda power steering fluid or are there generic fluids that are acceptable? 2--Has anyone used E3 spark plugs? Do they add to fuel economy? Thanks to all...

    I know it's a specialty metal. Last much longer. Can and should they be re-gapped? After being seated and torqued can they be re-seated?

    How often do you change them? How do you know if you need valve adjustment? I've never done a valve adjustment but the car runs fine.

    I just removed the cross bars from a 2012 and I need to get the little silver plastic plugs to fill in the holes. I looked online at the Honda parts sites and see that it's #49, but none of them offer them for sale. Does anyone have the part number for them? Or does anyone have any laying...
