  1. My solution to the heat problem (with pics)

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    I mentioned some posts ago that I did a "fix" for my heat problem. I remember being shocked one winter evening after the wife pulled the CRV into the garage after a 10 mile drive home from work and I saw that the temperature needle was still at the bottom of the gauge. I also noticed that the...
  2. My 2018 CRV turbo charged engine oil dilution solution

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    By the end of last November, I brought a 2018 HONDA CR-V EX FWD. On 2013, Honda released that 1.5L turbo charged engine would be used in CRV in 2015. I noticed every new year CRV mode and finally found 2017 CR-V with 1.5L turbo charged engine. I hear many complaints about turbo charged engine in...
  3. Oil dilution, a possible solution?

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Just wondering the effect of changing oil with an oil extractor to get (contaminated) oil out per 3000 miles without changing the filter; and change oil filter only during scheduled maintenance. This way, it is quick (no need to jack up the car), and the cost of extra oil is less than the cost...

  6. Admit it, you have no idea what your spare pressure is... a solution

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Admit it... few of us ever think to check the pressure in our spare tires. This is doubly bad because with our chintzy "doughnut" spares running at 60 PSI, they lose pressure faster than the regular wheels. And, even if you DO have the motivation to check the spare pressure on a regular basis...
  7. What's the solution to dead battery/regulator issue?

  8. Solution - hesitation at steady throttle

    Problems & Issues
    I'm posting this here because I've seen a lot of Honda owners posting the same problem but not always figuring out a solution. My 2005 CR-V developed a hesitation at steady throttle that felt almost like someone tapping on the brakes. If you stepped on the gas or let off, it would go away. It...

  20. FINAL solution to road noise (?!): foam-filled (standard?) tyres... Please comment.

    Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    Not knowing how much of the CR-V (I own a 2005 CR-V) road noise that comes from wheels or from air drag, but I do know that road noise is not only a comfort/annoyance issue - in the worst case it will cause you to fall asleep while driving! Bad!:( I have found several threads in this forum...
