  1. Stupid Question? 2nd gen AC system install

    Gen 2: 2002-2006 CR-V
    Am planning on replacing most of my AC system in steps. First evacuating, then several days later replacing under the dash, then several days later another part etc. The question is, will it be drive-able in between steps? Will any of these steps cause the condenser to lock? The belt to freeze?

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Good day all, I Bought my 2018 CR-V EX in March. We were a family of 3 then got an addition. Shortly after the addition (my wife and I never satin the back before) we found out that the rear seat belt is stupid. The car only safely transports 4 persons. The seat belt arrangement is backwards...

  4. Stupid clunking continues after rebuild of front suspension

    Gen 1: 1996-2001 CR-V
    I knew I needed new struts when this clunking started, and my mechanic friend suggested we just rebuild the front suspension, given the age of the car and the fact that we were removing a lot of it to do the struts anyway. Changed out struts, control arms, ball joints, end links. Car still...
  5. Stupid Question, need clarification

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 CR-V
    Is the read diff fluid and transfer case fluid the same thing or are they two separate entities? Do people use these terms to describe the same thing. Reason I ask is I have the rear diff fluid changed each time the maintenance minder pops the code but I've never had the transfer case gear oil...

    Problems & Issues
    Here is a stupid and cheap way to change transmission oil atf. Especially for hard shifting and gunky/dirty trannys. I own a 2000 crv that shifted very hard and late. Having nothing to lose, I drained the atf with dexron 3. I changed the atf three times with a short driving trip in between the...
