  2. 2006 timing chain issue

    Problems & Issues
    Hello! To make a long story short, my 2006 CRV with 163k miles is giving me trouble. Went out yesterday, as I was pulling into a parking space, the car stalled. Tried to start car, and it turns over, and catches as if it's starting, but doesn't start. Battery is fine. My initial thought was...
  3. 2009 misfire cylinder 1 after valves replaced

    Problems & Issues
    Long story short. All exhaust valves got bent while cranking after timing chain stretched too much. I just got the head back with all new valves. It starts fine and runs, but with the rough idle and miss on #1. Good spark, injector is good, compression matched the other cylinders. It's only...
  4. 2001 CRV Valves?

    Problems & Issues
    I have the opportunity to buy a 01 CRV with 190K miles from a friend. Real clean car. I had a 2000 CRV that had the valves go south at about 200K so I'm a little hesitant about getting it. I haven't driven it yet or seen if the CEL is on. Do the 01s have a similar valve problem? I dont think my...

    I bought this car about a month ago and had the top end rebuilt due to burnt valve. Has around 13000 on the clock since this was done. The car ran perfectly fine getting nearly 30 mpg. Decided to check the valves today and glad I did. Overall, the mechanic that did the work did a pretty good...

    Performance Modifications
    How often do you change them? How do you know if you need valve adjustment? I've never done a valve adjustment but the car runs fine.

  9. 2002 valves

    Problems & Issues
    Hello, I recently adjusted my valves and had trouble getting the 10mm wrench on some of the front (intake) valve nuts. So I used a socket to tighten some of them down and check the screw head slot to make sure it did not move. I also turn the crank shaft through the whole procedure again and...

  13. 07 CRV - Soft Whirring noise above 2k rpm. Valves, PS Pump??

    Maintenance and Service
    I just got an 07 CRV and it's making a soft whirring noise after 2000rpms. Sounds like it could be valves, but I saw some people say it could be a power steering noise. The sound goes away at idle, but becomes prominent under load and in higher rpms. The car has new 5W-20 Mobil 1 oil and new...
