  1. Gen 2: 2002-2006 (UK 2002-2007) CR-V
    I was driving my 2003 cr-v ex and I noticed the rpms drop below normal so I took my foot off the gas to see how far they would drop. They dropped to zero, I pulled off the road and tried to restart the car and it would not crank or start. We checked the battery it appeared to be dead and it was...
  2. Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    With the warm season nearly upon us and my parts list to keep up four Hondas growing by the day, I'm making a list of preventive maintenance items I want to replace in the next two months. I'm wondering if I should proactively change the timing chain tensioners. They appear easy to get at, and...
  3. Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    Took my CRV in to Honda last night and left it overnight. this morning they noticed the grinding and replace the actuator. This is my second actuator. He also said my cam tensioner was going bad so they change that and only charged me for the part, $90. does anyone know if the failed tensioner...

  5. Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    I am replacing the tensioner pulley, and noticed there is very little room to get tools in there to get at the bolt. I am guessing that once the belt is disengaged, the tensioner rotates enough to get a socket wrench on. But otherwise, the space between the chassis and tensioner pulley is...
  6. Problems & Issues
    Had the idle tensioner complete assembly replaced 8 months ago on my 2010 Honda CRV LX. I noted that there was a lot of rattle noise recently. Checked the engine and when in gear and under load with the ac and headlights on the idler assembly is visibly vibrating. I am guessing the bolts...
  7. Problems & Issues
    Hello all. The Check Engine, VSA and EPS lights came on our CRV. Took vehicle to local dealership (where we have bought 4 cars) and we need new timing chain, tensioner, actuator guide and the various seals and gaskets. $2,689!!! Not to mention the $263 to diagnose the problem. The vehicle is...
  8. Problems & Issues
    This is a bit off the wall, as I'm still learning this car. Today's quest is to tune up the a/c. Had been going warm at a stop, but today its ice cold. Hmm, anyway, I'm trying to track down some weird noises when the a/c is on. It seems to be related to the compressor cycling. Of course...
  9. Gen 2: 2002-2006 (UK 2002-2007) CR-V
    Is a new tensioner pulley suppose to have spin slower (or show some resistance) compared to a worn pulley? I know that's a rule of thumb on BMW puleys but not sure everyones experience on Honda. Thanks!
  10. Problems & Issues
    Hi all, I am working on my brother's 2010 CRV. The issue is there is a strange noise coming from the serpentine belt area. I removed the belt and spun all the tensioners, alternator, ac compressor, etc and the only issue was a slight rubbing in the tensioner bearings. I just replaced the...
  11. Problems & Issues
    SRS light on and my mechanic pulled code 21-1 for left front seat belt tensioner. I can replace the current tensioner with a used seat belt, but I'm wondering if there is anything else I can do to try to fix the problem. Thanks.
  12. Problems & Issues
    Im trying to remove my alternator but the tensioner does not want to move for me to remove the belt. I am pulling it towards the front of the car from the top of the engine. Seems like it is connected to a shock assembly at the bottom. Is my tensioners gone also? Can i remove it and replace fix...
  13. Maintenance and Service
    I live in Florida. The A/C makes a rattling noise when I start the car and pull out of the garage with the A/C on. If I turn off the A/C button on the panel it stops. My local repair shop replaced the belt tensioner with an aftermarket part, which solved the problem temporarily. Within 2,000...

    hi I was wondering whats the difference between the $65 pulley and the $96 pulley. Thanks http://www.hondapartscheap.com/honda/cr-v/31170pna023/2005-year/se-trim/5-speed-automatic-engine/engine-cat/engine-mounting-bracket-scat/?part_name=tensioner-assy-auto...
  15. Problems & Issues
    I just helped my girlfriend get a 2006 CR-V 2WD with 107,000 miles on it. Yesterday, when she went to start it about 30 minutes after getting home from work, it would crank but not start. She said she tried about 6 times, then called me. Of course when she went to crank it to let me hear the...
  16. Problems & Issues
    I'm trying to replace the Serpentine belt on my 04 CRV. I can't get the tensioner to release. I'm pulling on the wrench towards the front of the car and it won't budge. I sprayed it up front and back and will try again tomorrow. If this thing won't release is it possible to remove it with the...
  17. Problems & Issues
    Hi there - hope you can help me. I have a 2001 CRV (2.0 manual). It recently had a failed Cat Convertor which has now been replaced. At the same time the valves were all checked and are now at correct clearances. When I start the car from cold there is a very noticeable engine rattle. As the...
  18. Problems & Issues
    Hey everyone, looked at this '06 today with 178k miles on it. I noticed a rattle, especially when there was a load on the engine (i.e. in gear or with A/C on). It looks to be the tensioner, I think. is this a sign of bad bearings? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ogGgHqGZl0k&feature=youtu.be...

    Hello! I just aquired a 1999 CRV with 80K miles on it.. I do a lot of stuff of my own, but i feel that a Honda Dealer would be a better fit for this type of work. Looking to see what you all recommend the cost should be for Honda Dealer: -Valve Adjustment and seal replacement. (head gasket...
