The leaking-cracked blocks are the Civic engines. I have never seen a CR-V engi8ne this year or any crack. Unless it froze with water in the cooling system.

I checked for any bulletins or service articles just to be sure. None found for this problem. The only other thing in that area is the head gasket right above the oil filter. I would ask the mechanic if it's possible the leak is from the edge of the head gasket? I have included diagrams of the cooling system and lubrication system for your reference.

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA
