  3. May Have Installed Wrong Rotor?

    Problems & Issues
    I've got a 1998 Honda Crv, 2 wd, with 155K on the clock. I've been chasing a rough idle issue for some time and have replaced the distributor cap, rotor, plugs and wires yet still experiencing the rough idle.

  4. I was wrong about my CRV

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I clocked around 500-600 miles last week Weds-Friday for the Holiday and the CRV did good. MPG's were acceptable. Everyone was comfortable. Heat has never been an issue. But we experienced a heavy gas smell in the cabin anytime we sat idle. And the infotainment system was driving us batty, so we...

    I've had my EX-L for 3-4 months now and it has 2,800 miles on it. I do a mix of city and highway driving, with ACC on whenever possible. I have tried with ECON on and off. Despite all this I have only been averaging 25 mpg. What am I doing wrong?
  13. Wrong Towbar fitted by Dealer

    Racks, Hitches, & Towing
    Good evening, I collectected our 2017 CRV SR on 01/11/17 expecting to find a detachable towbar fitted, to my amazement they've fitted a fixed towbar but the bumper cuts are appalling and to be quite honest Stevie Wonder would've made a better job. I have it in writing that a detachable towbar...

  15. Is there anything wrong with changing the ATF/Rear Diff Fluid more than recommended?

    Maintenance and Service
    6 months ago, I drained/ filled the ATF on my '14 LX at 35K miles. However, the dealership sold me an extra bottle of ATF that I can't return for a I currently have 1.5 bottles. I honestly don't want these bottles sitting around my garage for the next 2 years. I'd rather buy...
  16. What is wrong with my CRV?

    Problems & Issues
    How did it start: For many months on and off especially on hot days my car would start and suddenly after a fraction of a second die. To get it going I would need to push on the gas right as the key was turned on. This would start the car up again and keep it on. About 2 weeks ago one morning...

    Problems & Issues
    Someone tried stealing my car, they seemed to have used a heat gun to try and get the ignition cylinder out but what they did was burned and melted the entire immobilizer unit receiver antenna and gutted my ignition cylinder. So I replaced the entire combination unit with one I bought online...
  18. Bought The Wrong Oxygen Sensor

    Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    Hi - I recently was diagnosed with a P0135 code which I was told by my mechanic was the upstream oxygen sensor. I shopped around online and purchased the cheapest one I could find, in particular the 24410 by NGK. However when I went to install it I realized the sensor I purchased had a female...
  19. Radiator Cap Right Fit But Wrong Pressure Rating

    Problems & Issues
    Well I went through two brand new radiators in one year. I was totally confused. So I was searching the net and found out that the old model CRV take 0.9 radiator cap rating. I had a 1.1 cap on. It caused too much pressure and made the radiator leak from the seals. So never put a 1.1 cap on the...
  20. Loosened wrong bolt when draining oil - 2011 CR-V

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    I wasn't paying attention and I didn't have good lighting, so today I removed the center bolt of three on the bottom of the oil pan instead of the correct bolt (drain plug) which is on the driver's side. Can't believe I did that. The bolt was tight, at least as tight as the drain plug, and...
