Thread: 2012 CR-V air filter?

  1. #1

    Default 2012 CR-V air filter?

    I looked in my owner manual, and while it does mention the cabin air filter, there is no mention at all of the engine air filter.

    I found a Honda dealer site that showed a list of maintenance minder sub-codes including one for the air filter, and another site that gives breakdown of scheduled maint items. Air filter isn't mentioned until 30,000 miles, which seems like a really long interval.

    NAPA lists a Platinum oil filter and a cabin air filter, but no engine air filter. So what's the deal? Is it a dealer only service item?

    i went in to get a oil changed yesterday and they mentioned if i wanted to get my tires balanced and rotated, transmission oil changed, and air filter changed. The quote that i got for balanced and rotate tires was 40.00. Transmission 130.00 and air filter 130.00

    i would suggest that you get buy your own air filter from dealership (30.00) or your local auto store and change it your self.

    You supply the parts and I'll be more than happy to video the change. and pay me 10% of the money saved not much to ask for. Now where's my pal with his Crv.

    I pulled mine out to see, just a standard paper element air filter. I did find some info, don't remember now if it was online or in the manual, that said the maintenance minder would say to change it at 30k. I just don't see me going that far. Maybe 15k.

    How many miles do you have on the V when the dealer was asking you to do the transmission oil?

    I would invest in a K&N air filter. It has a better flow-rate and lasts up to 100,000 miles. You will need to maintain the filter by cleaning and oiling yourself.

    The problem with K&N air filters is that while they do have better flow-rates, they do it at the cost of allowing more particulate matter (dust & dirt) through their filter material.

    I'll stick with the Honda air filters.

    Yeah, I've never drunk the K&N koolaid myself. Good way to ruin an engine.

    K&N = illicit drugs.

    Gives you a buzz then wrecks your engine.
