  1. Proper coil connector removal help

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 CR-V
    2010 CRV. As I get older, I'm more cautious. Going to replace the sparks plugs soon and, since it's my first time, thought I'd eyeball things ahead of time. Attempted to remove the connector a couple of times then said, nope, don't want to risk breaking anything and I'm not in a rush so I'll...
  2. Help with proper exterior color on my 2009 CR-V, on a NYS registration and title.

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 CR-V
    I have a Glacier Blue 2009 CR-V with a Nevada title that does not list the color of the vehicle.

  5. Transmission - Proper Procedure for Parking Car

    Performance Modifications
    I just purchased a 2013 2WD EX-L. While this is my second automatic, I've recently been wondering about the "proper" procedure for parking an automatic. I'm assuming most would say you stop (foot on the brake), put the car in park, apply the parking brake, and shut the engine off. With my old...
  6. Proper procedure for flushing brake fluid?

    Maintenance and Service
    I'll be changing all the pads and resurfaceing all the rotors on my 2009 CRV. I read at 3 years the brake fluid should also be changed. I just purchased the pad kits and fluid from my dealer, they also gave me the lube Honda uses for the caliper pins, something called High Temp Urea Grease. I...

    Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    Does anyone know the correct tire mounting method to use on a 2009 CR-V with aluminum wheels? I purchased four new Yokohama Avid Envigor tires in January 2011. Since then, the dealer has had to put at least 10 new tires on the car because each time they are rotated, there is a vibration in the...

  10. Proper Understeer Recovery Technique?

    Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    I was wondering what the proper technique for recovering from an understeer condition would be in and AWD CRV. I've been driving a '99 CRV for a few years now, and always stayed on the super cautious side which has kept me safe. (0 tickets, 0 crashes) I've understeered a few times, and slammed...
