  1. Gen 1: 1996-2001 (UK 1995-2001) CR-V
    Hello everyone! I have owned my 1999 Honda CR-V for close to a year now and I recently replaced the distributor(I've been having problems with starting and stalling while driving). I want to check the timing but I can't seem to find the timing marks. Does anyone know where to look for them on...
  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...

    I have a 2008 CR-V AWD w/ 115k miles in excellent condition. I did a Search and read a lot of replies on this Forum before posting. I had NO IDEA that there were timing chain problems with the 2.4K Engine until talking with a fellow who had 2 engines crater due to timing chain guide failures...

    How often should the timing chain be changed?
  5. Gen 1: 1996-2001 (UK 1995-2001) CR-V
    How do you check the timing on a Crv Gen 1, just confirm that the timing of the firing is spot on with a timing strobe? These are 20yr old vehicles, maybe something in the system can drift? I don't think there is any adjustment possible on the distributor to manually forward or advance the...

    What is the approx cost to replace a timing chain? If it is stretched, should I replace it?
  7. Gen 1: 1996-2001 (UK 1995-2001) CR-V
    Is the engine on the 2001 prone to bend valves if the timing belt breaks?
  8. Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    I am planning my 2007’s timing chain replacement. I have been told by other gearheads that I should get the chain, guides, etc. from the dealership to ensure quality parts. I have also been told Honda doesn’t make timing chain parts, they buy them from the same manufacturer as other car part...

    just got an '06 crv with 98000 on it. mint condition, original owner, dealer maintained. few weeks after I bought, found out it has a timing chain instead of belt. great! my questions is, does this ever require replacement or anything? with almost 100k on the car, what types of replacement...

    Hey everyone, 2006 CRV with about 270k on it. It’s been trouble free, with regular oil changes. Unfortunately, it’s been the month from hell for my car. Installed a new AC compressor and condenser fan, broke my windshield, and popped a tire. Now, I suspect I may have an issue with my timing...

    hi All, New member looking for some information. I don't know if my car has a timing belt or a chain. It's approaching 127, 000 miles and I thought it might be needing looked at. Cheers Johnny apples

    Hi, New to this club,so firstly hello to everyone.Sorry if this topic has been discussed before just trying to find out if the timing chain on a 2003 crv can be changed with the engine still in the car,a mechanic has quoted 10 hours labour to do the job saying the engine needs to come out,I've...

    I have 2007 CRV (just recently bought) with almost 132,000 on it. My alternator was replaced yesterday and when I got into the car after having it done, the check engine light came on. Got it tested today. Timing chain code. After having it tested and turning the car back on, the light was gone...
  14. Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    Hello, I'm getting mixed opinions on when to replace the timing belt & water pump that is done as routine preventative maintenance every 100,000 km. A mechanic told me that this engine has a timing chain and it's not necessary to replace unless it shows signs of loosening and as far as the...
  15. Gen 1: 1996-2001 (UK 1995-2001) CR-V
    Hi guys. I just did a timing belt along with some other stuff, the car ran fine before i did it, and now the car barely runs. Actually the first time i put it together it ran sort of ok, but would die at idle. I checked the camshaft timing and realized I was a cog off on one camshaft. I ended...

    Ok, so at 220,000 miles my motor jumped timing. Chain was replaced at 168k. Either I buy a motor from another 06, or i was looking into 06 Accord k24a1's. Are there any major differences besides intake manifolds? I can put the CRV one on it. Stock ECU should have no troubles, right? Thoughts?

    Seems this "issue" is widespread, well at least the technique to get the tension right is widely discussed. On a correctly tensioned timing belt how much deflection should there typically be on the belt between the camshaft pulleys? Some say around 1/4" between the pulleys and the belt...

    2 Questions: I have a 1998 CRV. 1--What items should be changed when a timing belt is replaced? 2--Is a speedometer on a '98 CRV electronic or cable driven? Happy Holidays to all!!! :confused::confused:
  19. Gen 1: 1996-2001 (UK 1995-2001) CR-V
    Hi all, I have a 1996 CRV JDM import that I am getting ready to change the timing belt on. So far all work I have done to the vehicle has been nearly identical to the US 1997-1999 CRVs. The Factory service manual is great for torque values but it annoyingly tells me the thread/pitch of every...

    We have a 1998 Honda CRV AWD, with a m4ta automatic transmission. Our mechanic said that the transmission needs to be rebuilt or replaced. He is a friend whom we have known for many years. I have a home mechanic background but I haven't worked to any serious degree on Honda's before. I am...
