    Problems & Issues
    I was changing the oil/filter on my 2018 Touring today and noticed a small oil leak from the parting surface between the Engine and Transmission. the oil was nearly clear which indicated to me its from the transmission. Anyone else seen this? The leak is very minor now but if it from the shaft...

    I just noticed that the front hood slightly moves when locked- meaning you can shake it- is that normal?

  6. Small Radiator Crack in 97 CRV; Epoxy Recommendation for Easy Fix?

    Problems & Issues
    I recently bought a 97 CRV with 147,000 miles from a friend for $100. Original owner, dealer maintained mostly and in good condition overall. I don't drive very often but she just wanted to get rid of it and I figured it was cheaper than cabs and rental cars. I smelled coolant burning and...
  7. Screen for turbo intake to keep small animals out of the turbocharger

    Does Honda make, or has anyone seen a screen made to cover the turbocharger intake? We live in the woods, and the mice have tried to move in our vehicles a few times in the past. Don't want them to find any new homes.
  8. 2013 Small Oil leak on/around filter after oil change

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    Hey everyone, first post here, been lurking for a bit. Got a 2013 CRV about 8 months ago. Finally did my first oil change on it, everything went great, but about a month later I saw two small drips of oil underneath. Did some investigating and the oil filter had oil that had ran down the sides...
  9. Question on towing small boat

    Racks, Hitches, & Towing
    OK guys I need your input on this. I want to buy a small boat that I can tow to Florida from the Midwest for use during the winter. My vehicle is a Honda CRV.

  10. Any issues with keeping the grey leather clean with small children?

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Hello, We are close to pulling the trigger on a 2017 touring and the exterior color that we prefer (gunmetal) only comes with a gray leather interior. Our last cars had black leather interior which was easy to clean but unfortunately not an option this time. Has anyone had any experience with...
  11. A small question: Where do you put loose change?

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I just picked up my CR-V Monday. I'm very happy with it so far, especially given that my biggest complaint right now is that it doesn't seem to have a spot to organize loose change. I've spent less than an hour in the car so far, so I might have overlooked an obvious solution. Anyone have any...
  12. 2017 Touring AWD Small Whining At Idle

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I noticed tonight that my 2017 Touring AWD makes a small whining sound while idling (after the car is at normal operating temperature), as soon as I press on the gas pedal it seems to go away. It's like a whistle. Is this a turbo thing? Seems a bit strange and I'm hoping its not an actual issue...

  14. CR-V small block v8 swap

    Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    Alrighty here's the deal. I've been a long time lurker here and you all seem like a cool bunch so I'm gonna go ahead and ask this silly question. Why hasn't anyone ever tried to swap a small block v8 into a cr-v and why shouldn't I? The engine in mine feels like it's on it's last legs, and I...
  15. 2015 CRV Floor pan vibrations on small bumps

    Problems & Issues
    Hey Guys, I am new and did not see anything about this yet. The suspension seems to work pretty well on the heavy stuff, but when the road has slight imperfections its as if the shocks (or struts) are to stiff to mellow out anything and it gets sent right into my feet and seat. is this normal...
  16. 04 CR-V - Code P0497 - Evap Small Purge Flow

    Problems & Issues
    Check engine light has been on. Had mechanic pull code and he got: P0497, for Evap low purge flow. I understand this relates to the system that captures fuel vapors from the gas tank that are eventually sent to the engine for burning. Whatever the problem is, it does not seem to be effecting how...

  20. Removing small dings/indentations on hood

    I somehow got 2 or 3 small dings, more like indentations I would say, on the hood towards the front. Something could have falling on it while parked by a tree or some animal perhaps but not sure the cause. Can only really see it in certain light at a certain angle but I know they're there and...
