Hi,

I have just purchased a 2006 CRV 2.2 diesel Executive from a pal that has covered 160,000 miles...


The car runs very well but does appear to use quite a fair bit of oil, although it doesn't smoke at all, pulls very well and the engine holds the car back on a decent so the rings should be fine... I will be doing a few miles over the next few days so should get a better idea of the exact amount its using then...


First question is how much should the car really use in between oil changes??

I do around 3000+ miles per month so the mileage will increase quite quickly...


Second question is how many miles should I see from the engine? It has a full Honda SH and I will be changing the oil myself at 10k or less...


Lastly, if the engine should require replacing, how long was this version of the engine fitted to this car (and other models?) and what others can I use as a replacement? I would have thought Accord and Civic but will the later 2007 onwards engine fit? And are there any other versions to avoid or go for?


Any help would be appreciated.


FF.

Perhaps no one has come across this defect and so has no experience of it! It is like asking how long is a piece of string though. The only way to find out the consumption rate is to do a accurate check and fill under the same conditions each time. That is check it cold on a flat surface and fill to the same exact level each time and note the mileage done. You could then pop into a Honda main dealers and ask them the manufacturers figures of consumption expected for this particular model of car.

How are we suppose to know? We dont have Diesel powered Hondas in the US. I did not even know Honda produced a diesel engine.
