  1. 98 crv stalling when warm & when you punch on the gas

    Problems & Issues
    Okay, so this will be a long convoluted post. Please bear with me. So I don't have the vehicle quite yet, She has to sign the title and is buying a fuel regulator for it, AND we have to get with another family member to bring his trailer to haul it to the house. I am making a checklist of...

    Problems & Issues
    2001 CRV with manual transmission. I'm third owner, bought it November 2018. Was having a cold idle issue in colder Minneapolis December: engine would turn over and idle at about 500 for a few seconds before climbing to a healthy and steady 1600 rpm. No problems while driving. I could live with...

  5. Heater too warm?

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    With all the discussion about the lack of, or slow to heat cabins in our 5th Gen CR-Vs... I have an observation. Something that I have seen a few others post about as well. The heat can blast you out of the car...This is NOT a complaint, just an observation and discussion... Granted I don't...
  6. Heated Steering Wheel Kinda Warm?

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I recently had the heated steering installed in my 2017 CR-V Touring (USA). Everything went well and the wheel does heat up (even during remote start), but the amount of heat the wheel puts out is, well, weak. It certainly never gets to the point where I need to turn it off due to being...
  7. 2018 crv poor mileage and slow to warm

    Problems & Issues
    Purchased new 2018 CRV about 2 months ago, it got about 31 mpg on a 1000 mile road trip, but in town it's consistently getting 21mpg. This seems too low. No deluxe add-ons, pretty basic model. I drive very conservatively, use regular from Fred Meyers, which has never been a problem with our...
  8. Does warm up harm your turbo?

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Poster URMdyldo (something like that) posted in another thread about how warming up your car could do damages to your water cool turbo. Since I'm one of those warm-upers, I asked him to clarify out of concern since I've never heard of such thing before. It has been some days now and he has...
  9. 2002 crv warm starting issue

    Gen 2: 2002-2006 (UK 2002-2007) CR-V
    Hello My 2002 crv has perplexed many mechanics. Here is my story Since Oct 2017 I have been dealing with this issue. My car as a cold start has never been a problem. If I run for 30-60 minutes and shut down the car won't start for about 30 minutes. After about 30 minutes it will start rough...
  10. 2015 seems slow to warm up

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    Hello, My new to me 2015 EX with 34k seems to take a long to time warm up in the mornings. For example my prior car which I still drive occasionally is a 2008 Toyota Matrix and upon leaving my home in 35degF outside the car will be at 180-184degF after about 6miles. My CRV in the same outside...
  11. warm start problem

    Problems & Issues
    So I bought my 98 CRV awd about two years ago as a winter run around car/suv. Turns out she is so handy (and cheap to repair) that I kept her. Couple this with no rust and a nice interior and she turns out to be a bargain. I am now however experiencing an interesting problem. She starts every...
  12. 2002 warm hard starting causes

    Problems & Issues
    I know this is a common problem but others seem slightly different than the issue I’m having. 2002 AWD 120K miles In the mornings car starts fine. I have noticed though that when I drive the car for a long time without turning it off or repeated trips (low miles) all day the car will have a...
  13. Warm weather cold weather 1.5 Turbo dilution issues...POLL short trip long trip

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    PLEASE ANSWER 3 QUESTIONS . The goal of this poll is to determine how widespread the fuel dilution issue is in warm weather areas. the assumption is that in general, cold weather/short trip =fuel dilution.. I live in Southern Calif, how many folks in temperate climate have fuel dilution issues...
  14. Poll- the # of warm climate 2017 1.5 turbo owners that have fuel dilution issues

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    hi New to this forum. Tremendous amount of great info. Looking to buy a CRV. As has been posted previously, I have concern spending $30k with a potential issue . I live in So Calif with rare visits to the snow, so low temp is not a factor for Southern Californians. Since ambient temp is a factor...
  15. How long is too long to warm up?

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Had the CR-V for almost two week and this morning was the coldest day. 30f when I left for work. It took a good 5-6 miles to finally warm up, this after remote starting the car for 10 minutes. I think its absurd how long it took. The grill vent / louver thing was open. At what temp is this...
  16. Do you warm up in the morning before driving off?

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Lots of opinions here. What protocol do you follow?
  17. Vents too warm in winter time

    Problems & Issues
    purchased my '17 CR-V in June and this is first winter w/ it.. I'm a fanatic about always having the vents on while I drive.. I like air movement. However, once it got cold outside (and therefore cold inside my CR-V) my vents started blowing warm air.. Even when set at 58 degrees they can put...
  18. 98 CRV Heater is warm and temp gauge stay on cold

    Problems & Issues
    So my temp gauge stays all the way on cold and my heater only gets warm. If it is running long enough the temp gauge will go up a bit and the heater will blow nice and hot, but it only lasts a few minutes before it goes back to cold. I know it’s proabably the thermostat or temperature sensor...
  19. 1.5T able to warm up in the winter

    Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    Tonight I noticed that my little 1.5 engine didn't warm up very fast. It was only 25 degrees outside, mild Minnesota evening. It started to warm up as I was traveling 40 mph, then I pulled over to the side of the road to look at something, the temperature dropped down to the bottom. I got back...
  20. Starts fine when cold but not when warm

    Problems & Issues
    I have a 97 crv that starts just fine when engine is cold but if I drive it even for a short distant and shut it off it won't start. It will crank just fine but won't start. It may be flooding the cylinders with gas. I have 285,000 miles on it. I had it at a certified honda shop and they changed...
