Smokin CRV

I have an 06 CRV as a toad and just received a class action notice of CRV's (02-06) catching fire. It appears from the paperwork that if the oil filter leaks, it will spray oil on the exhaust manifold and ignite. Thay are calling it a design flaw. So, just make sure when you replace the filter it's on tight and check for leaks. This is a FYI. (also includes the Element)

I put my notice through the shreader. I fail to see why I should blame Honda if I don't tighten the oil filter.

I assume the notice is for you to check the work after you have the Numnut at the oil change place do it for you! Not everyone is inclined or able to do the oil change themselves!

Good information!

There was a problem back then, primarily on the initial oil change, where the oil filter gasket stuck to oil filter mount when the oil filter was removed. When new filter was add, it was double gasketed and the oil pressure would atomize the oil onto hot engine parts. Not sure where the fault lies, but always people wanting to do class action suits. I have not yet received my notice for my 2004 CRV

On similar note, many years ago on a Ford Pinto, I (being a numnuts) double gasketed the oil filter. There was no atomization, it all blew out immediately. Did manage to save the engine by turning off immediately rather than trying to find the strange new engine noise.

Live and learn

we got the same notice concerning our Element. Built on the same platform as the CRV. I wonder if Honda has plans to do any retro changes to reduce the danger.
