  1. Gen 2: 2002-2006 (UK 2002-2007) CR-V
    I just replaced my radiator fan (on the drivers side, the passenger side is called the condenser fan). There are a few videos online showing guys doing it from the top and bottom, some taking off the bottom shroud, others removing the frame member that stretches between the headlights and holds...

    Hello fellow CR-V owners! I’m a new owner of a 2001. Her name is Ruby. She just hit 200k miles. I deliver mail so she gets a good workout and only about 4K route miles. I’m interested in seeing what I can do to keep her cooler in these humid hot Missouri summers. Currently she’s getting a...

    I am wondering if any commenters have had issue with radiator shutters not closing in cold weather? I just had the re-call done at the end of Nov. on my 2018 CRV. I am still unsatisfied with the cabin heat and continued rise in oil level. However I noticed today that the bottom 2 shutters...

    I noticed last week that I had a hairline crack in the radiator below the filler cap. Its was fairly long for a crack, maybe two inches. So I figured a new radiator was in order. But first the transmission fluid change needed done, then this week the catalytic converter replaced. It seems the...

    Like I said above, fan won't turn off. The engine doesn't overheat, there is no check engine light. I've seen it happened before, longest fan stayed on was just a few hours. Then this weekend it stayed on overnight and killed the battery. Fan hasn't turned off since. I have to full the fuse in...
  7. Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Since the fix is slow to arrive and not seaming to work... I am considering removing the top plastic panel covering the top of the radiator support and inserting a section of flat plastic sled to reduce some of the airflow through the radiator. I had a friend stuck in the middle of no where on...

    It's time to replace the old, corroded OEM radiator in my '01 SE. It was going to be a $400+ job at the shop so I decided to do it myself. Thought I'd ask if anyone here has done this, and if so, if you have any tips or pointers for me. After double-checking over everything carefully and...

    i replaced the radiator in my 2004 CRV EX 4wd. During install i had trouble with the connector at the bottom of the fan (above lower hose). First attempt to reconnect after install, i dd not get a click so pulled apart again and heard something fall. it was getting dark and could not find...

    The A/C system is not running optimally for my Honda CR-V 2008, here are the symptoms: The temperature measured at the center vent can go sub 40F if the car is running, highway or local, but once stopped or idled, the temperature rises up. When the car is idle, the lowest temperature I can get...
  11. Gen 2: 2002-2006 (UK 2002-2007) CR-V
    I have a 2005 Honda CRV with 225k miles that we use and love. We are the original owners and do not have much extra money laying around to get these fixed at a shop. We had a cooling system diagnostic done and were told that the Fan Switch, Radiator Fan, & AC Fan all need to be replaced. I plan...

    Daughter made a quick turn around from college for job interview. I have her car for 24 hours and the ac fan and radiator fans are not operating. I swapped relays and checked fuses under hood, no help. I'm going to check power at relays and jumper fans with power, but I'm having trouble finding...
  13. Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    The radiator fan is not engaging. I have checked the relay, fuses, and switches. The fan does engage when plugged in directly into power. Suggestion would be much appreciated. I have reached the end of my rope.
  14. Dear Honda:
    Cool idea having those slats on the front of the radiator to cut down wind resistance at speed. But, how about programming them to be dependent on temperature too? I notice when going downhill, which is six miles in my area, that the temp gauge drops to the bottom if the ambient temperature is...

    Recently changed timing belt and water pump. When restarted it will not idle and see air bubbles in rad. Tried procedure for getting air out of system but it just keeps coming. I have tried computer reset several times and no solution. Timing marks are dead on but cant test with light cause it...
  16. Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) 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...
  17. Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    Does anyone know if the 2011 CRV has an engine coolant drain plug located on the engine ? I am not looking for the radiator drain plug, but the one on the engine. Also, does this vehicle have a cooling system bleeder valve someplace ? Can you tell me the locations of both the drain plug and...
  18. Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    Just got new 2017 CR-V, our area has lots of bugs, has anyone put wire mesh screen behind front grill in front of shutters? Or do I have to muck up the looks by putting snap on screen in front of grill itself? Or will it cause other problems with air flow or cooling......plugged radiators from...
  19. Gen 2: 2002-2006 (UK 2002-2007) CR-V
    So I'm trying to replace the rad in my crv, and the rad that it listed, from both aftermarket and dealership is not the correct rad. Ive bought and returned them twice. Nobody seems to know where to find the rad(it was original) to fit my CRV. It is nearly an inch taller than the ones I've been...
  20. Gen 2: 2002-2006 (UK 2002-2007) CR-V
    Please Heeeelllp, after saving money and looking around for months finally got a 04 with 124xxx miles on it at an auction car seems good and came with a smog certificate I was driving home and then saw smog coming under the hood, pull over and the radiator cap wasnt fully close so I refill the...
