I'm almost at 90k and am going to replace the coolant and thermostat in my 2009 CRV, after ordering it I was surprised to find that it comes with the housing(Honda part number 19301-RAF-004) when I received it. I see that it does come with a rubber seal, but does it require any other sealant to install and does anyone know the torque for the bolts? I have replaced thermostats on other cars with ease, but Just don't want to make any mistakes. I'm new here, hello! Thanks

Curious as to why you even decided to change it? 5 yrs is very early to do that, but it usually doesn't hurt.
When you change the coolant, don't forget to drain the block, use the recommended coolant and 'burp' the cooling system.
Sounds like you do good maintenance. :)
No, the new O-ring requires nothing else besides being placed properly.
