Climate works for a while then stops and blows warm air, even hot air occasionally. Then may work again next time I start off for a few minutes or an hour or so. regassed still the same. no diagnostic codes. Recharged A/C blows cold then hot after a few minutes. Condensor radiator blocked with dirt and sand. Can't exchange sufficient heat, so freon overheats and pressure switch cuts off compressor. Pressure washed condensor and radiator. Now OK!

Having never used oil between oil services suddenly the CRV needed 800ml of oil after 5000km since the previous oil change. The shop looked for leaks etc and found none. Topped up the oil and the same oil usage occurred over the next 5000km. I have now switched to Mobile 1 Synthetic High Mileage oil in the hope that the oil seal swelling component in the oil will help with the usage. The dealer said that at 245,000km the oil usage is normal. March 2018 - Car continues to use about 800ml of oil every 5000kms (now at 259000kms

The sensor in the truck was not detecting that the hatch door was closed, so it my lights were always showing that the trunk was open. As a result, my key fob would not lock the doors (because it won't lock if it senses a door is open). For whatever reason, shutting the door was not depressing the plastic arm enough. I "repaired" this by gluing a plastic furniture pad (the kind you would put under the legs of a chair or table to protect the floor) to the arm so that closing the trunk door would depress it enough to turn off the sensor. So far so good!

Had a spark plug come out while driving on the highway. Car was drivable, but was down on power (duh) and *loud*. Plug was lost, coil was destroyed, and the threads were wrecked. Also damaged were the plastic coil cover and the underhood insulation. After buying a new plug and coil and discovering that the new plug would not thread in I bought the Helicoil spark plug thread repair kit. Seems to be working fine. I was the last one in there, replaced the plugs at least 30k miles ago, so this was pretty surprising. Glad I didn't need to take the head off!

I tried Seafoam to see if the oil control rings were gunked up but had no success. A compression test didn't reveal anything either- 180-185psi across all 4 holes. Sold the car, bought a 4Runner.

Honda has had an ongoing problem with Red and Black paint on their vehicles. Our 2003 CR-V has had the sealant coming off for the past several years now. Honda USA refused to do anything about it. My local dealer did notice same problem on a number of Hondas they have been servicing. They agreed to pay more than 1/3 of the cost for a Honda OEM complete paint job on our vehicle. Paint shop said it would take approx. 3 weeks, car had to be stripped down to bare metal and then paint and applications etc would follow just as if car was being painted at Honda factory. I was told this was a silent recall by another paint shop, from a manager whos daughter had same make, model and year car I have. He kicked up some dust and Honda paid for the entire paint job. I was not so lucky, but I am not complaining either. I have a niece who has a 2013 CR-V, Black in color and it is having the same problems with the paint as our 2003...

Begun stalling any time I took my foot off the gas. Oxygen sensor and idle air control valve replaced. The check engine light, which had been on for several years, turned off. Yay! Update: Three months later the check engine light is back on. Uggh! On low settings A/C fan control switch sometimes spontaneously turns off or changes to a high setting. If I tap it with my finger it corrects. After 3-4 attempts to observe the problem, the dealer fixed it. Returned a few years later. Hard to turn key in doors since 5-6 years ago, got worse over time. Contacted Honda, they refused to cover. Exterior trim badly oxidized. The steering wheel was replaced when still under warranty due to excessive wear on top where I grip it. I should have put a cover on it at that time. Now, the soft plastic exterior is completely worn through and the hard plastic core is exposed.
