  2. Oil leaking after valve adjustment/valve cover gasket Gen1 :(

    Performance Modifications
    I had my valves adjusted Monday as well as valve cover gasket replaced. Mechanics didn't say anything about the engine leaking. By Tuesday I was smelling hot chemical during my evening drive, when idle at stoplights. Thought it might have been the fixative they used on the VCG or maybe a dribble...

  6. 1997-2001 Valve Adjustment

    Dear Honda:
    Dear Honda, I am furious that you have not told owners of 1997-2001 Honda CR-Vs about the correct valve adjustment interval. You state that the valves should be adjusted every 105,000 miles instead of 30,000 miles. As per Tech Service Bulletin 03-038, you know that this usually results in...
