    Ok so I have had my 59 plate Honda CR-V diesel for a few days now. Did a service today changed the oil with castrol 0w30.

    When I took the old oil filter out it had plastic ends on the top and bottom.

    ImageUploadedByTapatalk1445551778.680333.

    The new one I put in made by Bosch was just paper, no plastic top or bottom? I was thinking maybe I bought the wrong type but it all went back together properly.

    I drained the oil from the bottom, but collected a bit out of the oil filter casing with a oil extractor.

    Changed the air filter and pollen filter both of which looked quite dirty.

    Have to still do the fuel filter, was going to leave it but i rather change it for peace of mind.

    Ok now for the problems.

    The clutch pedal is about 4 cms higher than the brake pedal. Not sure when the clutch/brake fluid was changed but I'm sure it's related. On a test drive today the clutch does not slip in any gear but sometimes when going into first there is a little jerk but nothing too bad.

    However there's a squeak actually more like a creek when I push the clutch down. It's quiet loud but only happens when the gears are engaged. Doesn't happen when it's in neutral.?

    The next issue is when going into reverse, moving backwards there's a kind of grinding noise like a vibration through the car.?

    Driving along the car pulls really well but sometimes hesitates a little at low revs but there's a rattling sound when accelerating.
    It only happens around 1500 to 2500 RPM and mostly sounds like a metallic sound?

    And finally, the turbo is making a whining noise of epic proportions. More like a siren but doesn't really affect driving just annoying.

    Ok that's everything I can think of, if anyone can advise it would be fantastic.

    Despite all of the above, I really like the car and it fits my needs. I don't mind spending some money on sorting the issues as I would like to keep the car.

    It's had 2 previous owners and done 55000 miles now.

    Thank you

    Hi I answered this post on crvoc, if you look at that some of your questions are answered.

    But here you go, the ictidi engine is fussy about its filters use only honda filters not aftermarket
    Clutch pedal does sit higher than brake pedal or at least mine has always done and I have had a new flywheel and clutch fitted in August at the main dealers.
    Clutch squeak is a common problem just do a search.
    Grinding from the rear is more than likely your diff needs flushing and new fluid, again don't skimp honda only parts there is a how to do on here.
    Rattling at 2k revs is normal its what the I-CDTI does but if you have any doubts get it checked by a dealer or honda specialist not a back street garage.
    Turbo does whine espec when cold again its how it is they all do it.

    Hope this helps they are a great car and generally very reliable but please use Honda filters and the correct grade quality fully synthetic oil for the engine 0w30. Loads of info on here and some really wonderful peeps who will help out.

    Mine whined loudly more than most but also made a fluttering noise when coming off the power. A turbo recondition fixed it.

    Thanks again for your words of advice. I will be reading around on the forum for the next few days just to get a grip of everything.

    Looking around the car, they seem well built, hopefully with a bit of attention the car will last a few years.

    The previous owner had a tow bar fitted so I removed it but will keep it for future use. I was surprised at how heavy the whole thing was.

    Thanks again for the great advice

    To be honest they are well built and a pretty solid lump, there is also plenty of good info on here just have a good nose around. All you have to do is follow a few simple things like regular oil changes every 6k with good quality oil at the correct grade and like I said use original filters don't worry too much about the clutch despite what you may read on various Honda forums, yes the are expensive to replace but like all modern diesel cars its an expensive repair, my dealer did mine on a price match something that all Honda dealers will do or so I am led to believe. I love my V and on a run I have seen close to 50 MPG, to coin a phrase look after it and it will look after you!

    Thanks chunkymonkey I looked over the service record and previous owners have not changed the oil until over 12000 miles. I will stick to 5 to 6000 miles.

    Just seen genuine parts on eBay for about 25 percent less than dealers,?

    Going to get the fuel filter and oil filter tomorrow, called up my local dealer and the quoted 45 pounds for the fuel filter.

    Just be careful on the bay lots of counterfeit stuff on these like most things. Try Cox Honda they have a good website and sell parts cheap and they are main dealers so you know your getting genuine parts. As a club we do have affiliation to various other companies have a look in the main forum section lower down the page.

    Cheers mate, you been really helpful.

    Went to my local dealers today to get the fuel filter and oil filter. I wanted to get it out the way so one jobs done but it's been raining on and off.

    It was 45 for the fuel filter but about 12 pounds for the oil filter which I thought was not bad.

    The genuine oil filter has black plastic on the top and bottom, the Bosch filter I got from Euro car parts was just paper. I will hopefully get both things done tomorrow.

    Had another look at the service history that came with the car. The fuel filter was changed in 2012 at about 37000 miles. So probably worth changing it.

    Top man, not sure off the top of my head about fuel filter intervals but Im sure someone will be able to help you. As regards the oil there are plenty of posts on here about it, Honda did recommend 5w30 for the uk as it does not get that cold here but europe was 0w30, now its just 0w30 for the whole of europe but to be truthful as long as its good quality fully synthetic oil In either spec I would think it should be ok but if you have a DPF fitted make sure it is DPF compataible oil again have a nosey around on here.

    hi

    my v is an I-DTEC so i do an oil and filter change every 6k and use the castrol edge oil as per recommendation ...just to be sure to keep the engine as clean as possible

    fuel filter i change on a yearly basis

    as stated above the noise from the rear is likely diff fluid needing replacing ... honda don't give any real guidance on this but a lot of owners recommend a regular change. I done mine for a 2nd time there after 20k

    Managed to get the fuel filter done today. Read a few guides but what a job. Took a few hours simply because I coudnt get the plastic drain section off. Had to use a vice after I took the whole bracket off.

    ImageUploadedByTapatalk1445802132.910192.

    Didn't know how to get the torque correct on the filter but did it tight.

    It was more the cramped conditions but once I got the whole thing out the car it was ok.

    I did notice the noise between 1500 to 2500 RPM, was a bit louder. Sort of like a misfire but all the posts and threads say it's absolutely normal.

    Thanks for all the advice it is appreciated.

    Next job is the diff oil and gearbox oil. Plus the brake discs and pads.

    I found the 0w30 oil is a lot more expensive than 5w30, but I went with the 0w30. The cost for doing everything so far is mounting up, but hopefully it will be worth it.

    I've done a guide for the diff and I think I did the transmission also but can't remember. I think it's the CR-V which has a separate fill bolt which you remove but would have to check. Sometimes you fill transmission fluid until it overflows from the fill plug but I think the CR-V has a separate fill level plug lower down which is important so you don't overfill it.

    Thanks for that. The oil should arrive in the next few days so hopefully get around to doing it.

    Reversing you can really feel the grinding noise. So that definitely needs sorting, the gearbox could probably wait but may aswell get it out the way.

    I will check out your guides, thanks.

    you might as well get the gearbox oil done as well - you start off with a clean slate so you know what is done and when need doing again
    thats the approach i take to all used vehicles i buy

    Thanks nsxer, I have it on order so I want to do both when they arrive. I'm hoping to do the brakes soon aswell. It's finding the time and weather. Need to get it out the way before winter arrives.

    Been working the last few days but the gearbox oil and diff fluid has arrived. Got a full set of pagid brakes and discs to fit as well. Want to clean the car properly but the weather hasn't been great.

    Did order a wall drive socket set. Can come in handy I suppose but didn't really need it lol.
