    Just bought a used 2009 CRV and recently noticed water in the muffler. Should I be worried? What should I do?

    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...

    Can anyone shed light on the issue of water leaking and pooling in the spare tire well? could it be related to bad taillight gaskets?

    I have an 03 AWD 5-speed. I am having issues with water leaking on my driver side floorboard/footwell. No sunroof/moonroof, new windshield about 3 years ago but no water is present on dashboard. We also resealed it at the bottom to make sure. Doesn't occur on passenger side or anywhere else in...

    I have a 2015 CRV. The water pump failed with 52,000 miles. We found out the pump is defective on this model/year, and there apparently is a TSB on it. Repaired (just) under warranty. Anybody else having this problem?

    I have researched several water pump brands, with so many choices ie. Gates, GMB,Beck Arnley which are the best, I'm looking for a good not cheap that will last for about 80-100 k miles. I read about the Aisin WPH-054,Aisin it states that they recommend to soak the pump in water below the weep...

    The new water pump has a rubber seal due I need to put sealant / grease on the seal before installing

    When asked what product to use on the dash my Maintenance Mgr said to only use a microfiber cloth damped with water. Is he correct?

    I just purchased a CRV for my wife . After getting car home I was shocked to find water in spare tire area. The dealer washed car right before I purchased so I assume it came from the washing as it has not rained recently. I have seen many posts about about this problem. Can anyone tell me if...

    Hello, Picked up a brand new 2018 CRV but I notice there is some noticeable water leak underneath the car. I say water but I'm not sure. I put papertowel under the drip and it's clear white, so I'm guessing it's water. Now, the water continues to drip for about 15 minutes, and it creates a...

    I have a 2018 crv, I noticed that after going through the car wash there is usually 2 doors with water visible when door is opened. I have not seen any indications water is getting inside the cabin, water pools up on outside of rubber door rubber seal at sill. Is this vehicle designed this way...

    Drivers side floor board gets wet. I have looked and the fire wall is dry. It only occurs in the area of the fuel leveled up to the plastic on the carpet. Has to be a heavy rain too. 2000 Honda CRV Weather stripping is tear free. All the online searches seem to point to begins the...

    Yesterday while slowly pulling away from a stop sign, my water pump pulley broke away from its hub. I lost power steering, charging and of course engine cooling. Has anyone else experienced this? The pulley has the "Gates" logo stamped in it. There is 114,000 miles on the car. It is a 2008 LX.

    Just because the '17 CR-V has an air intake high enough that minor street flooding shouldn't be an issue, there are parts on the underbody of the vehicle that cannot take the stress of driving down a road with minor flooding. A quick storm moved through and everything flooded (pretty normal...

    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...

    Does anybody also have lots of water in their taillights? My driver side taillights has always had some kind of condensation since I got the car last summer. But recently I notice it's a lot more then usual. There's so much water that it is pooling in the red part at the bottom of the...

    Sick of the poor legibility of the water temperature and fuel gauges during the day. I can’t believe that Honda didn’t correct this prior to going into production. Things are much better with this design on the Civic Type R by using red LEDs.
