  1. 2001 CRV oil dipstick tube came out — with a “gasket” on it!

    Gen 1: 1996-2001 (UK 1995-2001) CR-V
    It’s the 2nd time it’s happened. Had it put back on by the shop a few years ago (not replaced, same part if I recall). Funny thing is, when it came out this morning and I was looking at it, it has some kind of gasket on it — looks like the shop that put it back on a few years ago must have...

    The other dag my oil pressure light came on. So I inspected the car and found Oil keeps leaking from this tube(see picture).

  4. Coolant bypass tube rusted out

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    Hey all, so I am looking at my Cr-V and it has a rusted coolant line up top near the intake duct in the engine bay. It looks to be a simple swap in and out scenario. Anything I should be aware of? I probably will be losing a small amount of coolant and introducing air into the system, so how do...

    On Saturday, my dealer left me a voice mail advising that there was an urgent safety recall on my 2017 CRV. I returned the call this morning and was told it had something to do with the rear fuel feed pipe, that could result in possible fuel leaks, and possible fire. I explained that I was out...

  7. Rear differential breathing tube location 2000 crv

    Problems & Issues
    HI, I found the plastic end of the breathing tube for the rear differential on my 2000 crv hanging down. I can't find the hole that it is supposed to be inserted in. I found a place to put it but I don't think it is correct. There is a hole between the rubber hoses that go from the gas tank...

  9. Transmission dip-stick tube had crud or dirty buildup

    Maintenance and Service
    Just did a drain and fill of the transmission fluid on a 07 CRV and during the process I noticed something disturbing. The dip-stick tube had this white stuff in it. Some sort of corrosion or build up on the inner wall. My fear of course is this stuff getting into the fluid. The dipstick...
  10. No flap in the fuel fill tube?

    Problems & Issues
    Hi all. Recently got the "check fuel cap" message and whilst staring at the cap and the filler tube. I noticed that there is no metal flap in the filler tube. I know some cars have it and never really took notice until now on the CRV (2010 LX). Can anyone else confirm whether or not there...
  11. Gen 1 CRV Dipstick oil tube problem

    Dear Honda:
    If there is a known problem with the dipstick tube falling out of the block how come the dealer doesn't know how to order parts to fix it? Why isn't there a bulletin about how to fix it and what the part numbers are? This is a frustrating problem to resolve while trying to talk to the dealer.
  12. Oil dipstick tube. Help!!

    Problems & Issues
    The oil dipstick tube has come out and now will not stay back in place. The shop wants $200 to weld it back. I do not see where it had been welded before. Any suggestion?

    Greetings. A few weeks back I made a valve gap adjustment on my 04 EX and in the process of removing the head cover cracked the breather tube. as you can see the crack is fairly long but for some reason didn't think it was a big deal. Today i got my oil analysis report and it indicated a large...

  17. Reseating Oil Dipstick Tube in Engine Block

    Gen 1: 1996-2001 (UK 1995-2001) CR-V
    2000CRV Automatic What is the recommended method. The tube came out with the dipstick and it is very difficult to reinsert without removing the exhaust manifold heatshield. I've done it several times and haven't removed the heat shield yet (sometimes it took almost 1/2 hr of trying). :( I am...
  18. Loose dipstick tube on 2001

    Maintenance and Service
    I don't know if anyone else has had a problem with the dipstick tube coming out with the dipstick but it has been a pain. I have put it back in a few times and drove it in with a long punch, but a couple of checks later and it would come out again. When the engine is hot it is a real PAIN to...

    Purchased an '08 in June and love it! There is what appears to be an overflow tube underneath and behind the engine that is dripping water onto the garage floor. What is this for? Does it have something to do with the heater?

    I have a 2001 CR-V, and had the oil changed the other day. I went to check the oil a few days later, and the tube that the dipstick goes into, came off with it when I pulled it out. I'm not sure if all the CR-V's are built the same, but my dipstick goes into a hole in the heat shield that...
