thanks for that page out of the V maint manual. It looks like the only item (predictable maintenance) that is 4wd specific is
Replace rear differential fluid (4WD only)
IS this an accurate ?
"My V was due for maintenance and I was scrambling to look for the code meanings"
Another question on the maintenance minder (my words; I dont know what honda calls this little system) ; does it issue the codes noted in the maint. manual?

Yes, i think it predicts the service your car needs based on the mileage.
It doesn't mean you can go off road and do donuts daily and it still ask you to do tire rotation and alignment yearly. That's the recommended service. Your dealer will tell you what else is needed based on the 'health check'.
I went to get the VTC recall and A16 done and it costed me $160 w/ tax.
They have a 'health report' printed when I checked out and it has the brake and tire wear figures on it. Pretty cool stuff.

#6782 of 6957 rasping noise on turning
Sep 28, 2011 (4:24 am)
I drive an'04 crv manual with 46,000 mi. , there is a rubbing noise on turning which stops when the wheels are straight. Goes away after a mile or two. Worse in cold weather. Does not seem to effect function. Had differential fluid changed but no difference. Any ideas?
Possibly wheel bearing?

I'm having the same issue on my '02 after 75K miles. Another noise I hear is a high pitched whirring when driving above 40MPH with the windows open. When I took to the dealer they advised that the dust shields behind the brakes are rusting and starting to rub against the rotors. They said that it shouldn't be a safety issue. I did my own inspection and found that to be the case. My concern is why the rotors shift side to side and allow rubbing against the shields. Could there be some play in the wheel bearings that doesn't show up when pulling on the wheels?
#6784 of 6957 Rear brake problems with new CR-V
Oct 15, 2011 (8:36 am)
I just bought a new AWD CR-V EX. When the vehicle was delivered I noticed that the rear brake rotors were very rusty. One was worse than the other and appeared to be gouged. The other was better but the rotor was not clean over the full surface of the brake pad. Part was not touching. The fronts were clean, as expected. I'm aware that it is normal that the rotors would be rusty when the vehicle sits around for a while especially in moist conditions. However I expected that the 40 mile drive home would have cleaned up the rear brakes. I drove an additional 60 miles while consciously applying the brakes more than I normally do. This did not help.
I brought it back to the dealer and they put on new rotors which seem to be working as expected.
I checking to see if others have run into this issue or whether mine was an isolated "Monday morning" brake assembly issue.
I am especially concerned because I have just retired and the CR-V will be sitting for several months in the garage while I'm in Florida and wonder whether this will occur again.

We own a 2003 Honda CRV AWD with 104,000 miles, the only extra maintenance is replacing the rear differential fluid at 30,000 miles, if you don't, you'll get a growling noise(I know this by experience). Other than that it performed flawlessly.

Oct 23, 2011 (10:47 am)
I went to replace the spark plugs in the car,and in removing the boots i found the spark plug
wells filled with oil.
The original problem was that the 'check engine light" was on,which prompted me to change the plugs. 137k on engine

I've seen this on 2 other cars. A Plymouth Breeze and a Mazda 3. You need to replace the valve cover gasket. There are what they call "spark plug tube seals" in the gasket package or at least get one that has them. Not sure if you are a do-it-yourself kind of person but it's pretty easy.
There is a the main valve cover gasket in a kit and 4 plug tube seals. Sometimes there are 2 tube seal gaskets ie; 1 gasket encompasses 2 spark plugs. They are just rubber gaskets the prevent the oil from getting into the tubes. If you opt not to do it yourself, just tell the mechanic (any independent mechanic can do this - no need to go to the dealer) the plugs tube seals are leaking.
