  1. Oil Flash Point now 215 Degrees Fuel to Oil Ratio 2017 CR-V

    Problems & Issues
    I have had Blackstone Laboratories perform two comprehensive tests on my 2017 CRV oil and the results are very disturbing. The flash point of my oil is now 215 degrees, which is within the operating temperature range of the engine. This engine has 9,400 miles on it and the tests were done at...

  3. Secondary hard point for floor jack lift, 2014 CRV

    Maintenance and Service
    I want to purchase a floor jack to raise the car for general maintenance. Have been using the tire jack for too long and want to move on from that for safety sake. However, the jack points are too narrow to accommodate both a floor jack and a jack stand at the same time. Where else in front can...

  9. 2013 Rear Jack Point?

    Maintenance and Service
    Hi all, I was able to change my rear differential fluid without having up the CRV, also did my transmission fluid. I know there's a jack area on the front, but what about the rear? I currently have a trailer hitch that covers the rear hook so that's kind of off limits. Is there an area near...
  10. Honda Link - what's the point of a passenger seat?

    Problems & Issues
    I have a 2015 CR-V and, aside from the vibration at idle, I like it. That said, I wonder why Honda bothered with a passenger seat in the front at all. If the passenger wants to take their mind off their whole body massage and their teeth being shaken loose, they may wish to try playing with...
