REMOVAL & INSTALLATION CRV



See Figures 1 and 2

  1. Note the radio security code and station presets, then disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2.  
  3. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  4.  
  5. Drain the engine oil into a sealable container. Install the drain bolt with a new crush washer, tighten the bolt to 33 ft. lbs. (44 Nm).
  6.  
  7. Loosen the oil pan nuts and bolts in a crisscross pattern. Remove the oil pan. If necessary, use a seal cutter, or a mallet to tap the corners of the oil pan. Do not pry on the pan to get it loose.
  8.  
  9. Clean the oil pan mounting surface of old gasket material and engine oil.
  10.  
  11. Inspect the oil screen and pick-up tube for blockage, residue, or build-up. Replace the oil screen and pick-up tube if necessary.
  12.  

To install:
  1. Apply sealant where the oil pump and rear oil seal housing attach to the engine block. Work quickly so that the sealant doesn't set before the oil pan is installed.
  2.  
  3. Install the oil pan gasket and oil pan.
  4.  
  5. Tighten the nuts and bolts at six points as shown.
  6.  
  7. Tighten the nuts and bolts in a three-step, crisscross pattern to 123 inch lbs. (14 Nm). Do not over-tighten the bolts, this can distort the gasket and cause oil leakage.
  8.  
  9. Lower the vehicle. Ensure the sealant has cured and fill the engine with oil.
  10.  
  11. Connect the negative battery cable and enter the radio security code.
  12.  
  13. Start the engine and check for oil leaks.

  1. Apply a suitable liquid gasket where the oil pump and rear oil seal housing attach to the engine block and to the inner threads of the bolt holes. Work quickly so that the sealant doesn't set before the oil pan is installed.
  2.  
  3. On 4-cylinder engines, apply liquid gasket to the corners of the curved section of the oil pan gasket. Install the oil pan and gasket to the engine block.
  4.  
  5. On V6 engines, perform the following:
    1. Apply a thin, even layer of liquid sealant to the oil pan mating surface on the engine block, forming a continuous bead on the inside edges of the threaded bolt holes.
    2.  
    3. Apply a thin layer of liquid sealant to the inner threads of the bolt holes on the engine block.
    4.  

  6.  
  7. Install the oil pan and evenly finger-tighten the nuts and bolts.
  8.  
  9. Tighten the nuts and bolts to the final torque specification in a three-step, crisscross pattern.
  10.  
  11. On 4-cylinder engines, then tighten the retainers as follows:

    Tighten to 123 inch lbs. (14 Nm). Do not over-tighten the bolts, this can distort the gasket and cause oil leakage.
     
    Once the oil pan is installed, install the torque converter cover and tighten the bolts to 106 inch lbs. (12 Nm).
     

  12.  
  13. On V6 engines, tighten the oil pan retainers to 104 inch lbs. (12 Nm).
  14.  
  15. Install the exhaust pipe with new gaskets and new locknuts. Tighten the nuts attaching the exhaust pipe to the exhaust manifold to 40 ft. lbs.
