    Hello everyone, I'm having issues with the belts on my 1997 CRV. On my way home the other day the tone of the belts changed, I noticed my a/c belt broke. So I immediately changed all 3 belts (it was due time) and checked the pulleys to make sure the bearings were all still ok. Well, the next...

    2003 CRV. Has rattle vibration from tensioner idler pulley. I've seen the belt changing info. Has anyone changed the idler pulley? I think it is more than a worn belt. Belt has about 25k miles on it. For the work it may get a new belt anyway. JS

    I've had a high-pitched whining in the engine compartment of my 1997 V for several months. This whining noise changed with the rev of the engine. I suspected it to be related to one of the devices driven by the A/C belt off of the engine. (update: I think the whining is a result of the...
  19. Belt Pulley Issues

    Problems & Issues
    So I've again been a little bit reckless, and pushing my very stock CR-V to new limits. I drove it through a great big mud puddle, and it did surprisingly well, considering my frame was sitting ontop of the ruts, the wheels were spinning in water, and I had to exit the vehicle via passenger...

    Under The Hood / Performance
    Has anyone installed an underdrive pulley? I am going to be changing my timing belt soon, and I'm wondering if the performance/fuel economy is worth the cost of the pulley and the belts while I'm at it. I'm just wondering if the power steering still performs the same ect. I don't worry much...
