  1. Is there anything a OBD2 reader can monitor for oil dilution?

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    About to get my OBD2 reader in the mail. Not sure if I have oil dilution on my 2019 yet or not. Is there anything I could be watching for on the OBD2 reader?
  2. location of reader port...airbag light on

    Problems & Issues
    Can someone tell me where I will find the port for my code reader on a European diesel 2006 Crv? I have an airbag light on, which I suspect my code reader will not see, but its worth a try. Many thanks in advance
