    Hi all

    Bought a 2nd Generation CR-V diesel as we've just bought a caravan.

    My first Honda and although nearly 100k miles on the clock I do love it.

    Hope to make some new friends on here and share knowledge.

    Cheers

    Mark.

    Welcome to HK @Mark Whitfield. :welcome:
    There's a wealth of information on this site, plus many helpful members. Enjoy your CR-V. They are great cars.
    Just make sure you change the oil with the correct grade and interval.

    Agree about oil, I'm changing my oil every six months or 6000 mines, whichever comes sooner.

    Mobil 1 0W30 C3 is my oil of choice but everyone has their own preferences. Castrol Edge seems to do nicely also.

    I must say @ArcticFire , I agree with you about the Mobil 1 oil. Used Castrol Edge until last month when I decided to give her its winter service. It runs better with Mobil and the engine is also quieter.

    Hi Mark, nice to see a fellow Yellowbelly on here.
    I tow with my FR-V 2.2 I-CTDI and have found it brilliant over the last 2 years/26k. South of France? - no problem!
    The guys on here are right about the oil changes, every 6 months or 6,000 miles with 0w30 fully synthetic. I bought 25 litres of Exol Ultima Vimax from Lubetech through this forum when it was the AOC. Are they still here?
    Happy tugging!

    Thanks everyone! Yes its due an oil change and I've already got 6l of Mobil 1. I've also got the dreaded P2004 IMRC fault code to just checking it's covered on my warranty before I fork out for one.

    Quite big into my auto electrics and ICE so hopefully will be able to help others
