Is this miscellaneous that demands done?

Yes, this is other that requirements to be done if you want to avoid potential engine damages that will require very high value repairs.

Your engine is that the interference design, which means that when the timing belt snaps, pistons and also valves will crash right into each other, causing… a lot… of internal damage. Since nobody deserve to predict once the belt will certainly snap, that is a great idea to replace it on the schedule recommended by the vehicle’s manufacturer.

In bespeak to conserve on labor prices if the water pump is in require of instead of at a later date, it is cheaper in the long run to replace the water pump at the exact same time.

In addition to the time belt and the water pump, you have to replace the belt tensioner(s) at the very same time.

You have a 2.4L 4-cylinder engine and it uses a time chain. The 6-cylinder Honda engine provides a timing belt and also it was not available on your CR-V.

Gosh, this seems choose a really huge error in the manual! I’ll require to number this out in around 40,000 miles on mine vehicle.


StevenMazzi, figure out whether you have a time belt; if you do, absolutely gain it replaced. The reason the water pump replacement is argued is because you have to do most of the same job-related for both jobs and it wouldn’t be inexplicable to have to do a water pump replacement prior to your 2nd timing belt replacement.

It appears that this engine in reality uses two time chains.

jtsanders is correct, indigenous what ns seeing the 2013 CRV seems to just come through a timing chain. For this reason there’s no timing belt to replace.

OP, are you external the unified States? If so climate it is feasible Honda readily available the CRV with one more engine there that does use a timing belt. Examine under the hood on the emissions lable. Walk it to speak something favor L4-2.4L (K24Z7)? If so, no time belt.
