2016 CRV Touring AWD
2021 Update - OD is fixed. No further discussions permitted and is not up for debate.
Thank you Rocky but why not just a "Issues" sub forum instead of just a single thread?Due to the volume of complaints about the volume of "OD" threads, a decision has been made to only allow one thread for all discussion about this issue as some say or alleged issue as others say.
Existing threads will be closed you can put your comments here. Any new threads opened will be closed or consolidated into this thread.
In accordance with existing practice as some have discovered, posting privileges can be withheld for any poster who fails to uphold community standards of civility and respect.

I noticed that and didn't get around to post about it. You beat me to it, ColdHonda. After the fix, I now do have a cold Honda (go figure). I did a fix and it worked! I was going to post about the fix but with the discriminating thread closure, I am not sure about posting it since it is not a Honda feel-good piece.Crv vs extra cold thread closed too?
So basically, threads viewed as Honda Friendly can be unlimited. All others deemed as having critical wording of Honda will all be crammed into 1 thread.
Being a member who has the oil dilution problem (initially and then went away and now might be back after the fix) and the new issue of no heat after the fix, I am interested in reading any and all members' posts on their issues to see if any new developments/progresses/issues were made. So that's the reason why I've been paying that much attention to this website, more than I should be. Why would I want to go here if Honda is as trouble free and as reliable as they said? The OD issue was what getting me to this site and stuck to this site. Beyond that, if it was a fun/performance car (read BMW/Corvette etc) site and not a Honda SUV, then I would visit for mods ideas. Who the heck would mod their utilitarian CRV?Trying to put every post on this topic together is a really bad idea and as Dans15 said it just creates a mess for anyone trying to track what is going on. If you really want to create something useful then start a thread asking the club for suggestions on topics for an organized sub-set that would be truly useful in following each topic.
I want to follow the results of people who have had the fix. I know there is a poll but it is not being used. I counted at least 18 owners who have reported the are experiencing worse conditions, heat or oil, since having the fix. The poll doesn't list them because they were posting on a thread with a heading to let them tell their story.
I want to see factual numbers from people who have had oil analysis.
I want to see a thread where people can toss out their ideas on why this engine is not living up to the normal Honda standards.
I want to see a thread that shares what dealers are telling owners who have this problem.
I could go on. My point is this topic needs to be organized into sub-topics that people can follow based upon their interest. That is the basic concept why each generation of CR-V's has their own category. Please reconsider doing the same with the OD topic which is spinning out of control and making so many of us question if we made a mistake buying the 1.5L turbo.
Thanks for listening.
Thank you Traylaw. It maybe simplistic but it makes perfect sense.This is a bit simplistic but here goes. The PCV system on the 1.5 turbo is a bidirectional system consisting of two oil air separators. One for the intake manifold the other for the turbo charger. When the intake manifold pressure is below the pressure at the intake of the turbo. Air travels from the turbo intake via a crankcase breather tube into the crankcase, then to the intake manifold. Under turbo boost the air direction reverses. The oil air separators are built into the top engine cover. View attachment 128063
