The plugs that Honda uses in the 10-14 CR-V are NKG or Denso Iridium.Agreed. Asian vehicles are using ngk or denso. American vehicles usually use AC, motorcraft or champion.
BTW, don't waste you money on fancy marketed plugs like iridium, platinum, split fire or any that other stuff. Pure garbage. Just get copper cored resistor plugs.
Start the car with all accessories off (HVAC, radio, etc) allow the car to idle until the cooling fan cycles twice.How do you do the idle relearn procedure?
Thanks for the info. I have quite a while until my plugs need to be replaced but never knew how to do the idle relearn procedure.Start the car with all accessories off (HVAC, radio, etc) allow the car to idle until the cooling fan cycles twice.
One should only use the Honda specified plugs. There is no reason to change them before the normal interval of 105,000 miles.
You would be much better off leaving the very expensive plugs in there rather than changing them to some economy find. If you must play with it, remove them and inspect. You will be surprised at their condition.
Awesome! Thanks for the information.That is not the recommended Idle Relearn Procedure:
Most of the time you need top clear the PCM etc by disconnecting for around 15 min or so. Not sure if this is necessary, but I do it.
1. Make sure all electrical items (A/C, audio, rear
window defogger, lights, etc.,) are off.
2. Start the engine, and hold it at 3,000 rpm with no
load (in Park or neutral) until the radiator fan comes
on, or until the engine coolant temperature reaches
3. Let the engine idle for a minimum of 5 minutes with
NOTE: If the radiator fan cycles during this time, do
not include its running time in the 5 minutes.
During that time you are not supposed to turn anything electrical items on (radio, fan, any lights, etc) and not to open or close any doors that would trigger an interior light, etc.
