Default Thanks

Thanks for the help SpRuCe. I got the part and installed it, and, my Honda dealer made a note on his parts computer program that this part fits the 2001 crv. I also found that cleaning the rust inside the dipstick receiver for the dipstick tube or oil level pipe, will keep it from being pulled out again when block is hot (expanded).

bmeddie,

thanks for the tip. I just purchased a used 1st Gen and when I went to check the oil......the entire tube came out with the dipstick.

I got very scared since it was getting dark and I couldn't manage to put it back in its hole due to the hot heatshield.....but I did finally got it in there.

One thing I noticed is that there was no o-ring attached to that oil level pipe. Did the new one you purchased from the dealer come with a o-ring?

My other Hondas do have o-rings on the dipstick tubes.

No o-ring no retainer. after taking off exhaust manifold guard I had to force new one in to block.I used a slightly larger diameter box end wrench slide over the tube and hit the handle, while making sure the tube kept the correct angle left to right. Hope this helps.

Thank you very much for your response.

Did you have any trouble getting the exhaust heat shield off ? The bolts on mine appear rusted. I hope penetrating spray will do the magic.

No, but penetrating oil should used. Also, work them back and forth easily. You don't want to snap them off.

I have an 01 CRV that happened to just recently...Honda also told me I need to replace the whole block..I ordered the part number and compared the 2 at parts counter at Honda..The Honda parts guy just shook his head and asked if he could keep the part number..I said please do

Got home. squirted a little penetrating oil on the tube and stuck it in the block. Went in about 1/4 inch. I then took a 1/4 inch steel rod with a rubber tip on the end so I wouldn't damage the flange. Gently tapped each side and the front of the flange straight down until seated..And yes it took about 20 minutes..In there real good..Tight..

Couldn't of done it without you guys...Have great Holidays...

Jim
