2018 Honda CR-V Engine Can’t Keep Gasoline & Oil Separated

By  | 

It looks like Honda might have to issue a recall soon as new reports claim that they might have a major issue with the 1.5-liter turbo four-cylinder engine.

According to the reports, Gasoline that has not been vaporized in combustion would be washed down to the cylinders mixing with the oils. When asked by Honda, Honda responded by saying that they have received a few reports of these happening on some 2017 and 2018 Honda CR-V models that are fitted with the 1.5-liter engine.

They added that these seem to be happening in areas of the country that has extreme cold weather condition. They also said that they are looking into the issue and is working on a solution. The owners found out about the issue when they notice that the oil levels were increasing which is odd since oil does not increase on its own.

This is not the first time Honda came across such an issue as they had to issue a recall in China for a similar issue on the Civic and CR-V models. The solution was to adjust a fuel-injection setting.

Hopefully, Honda will have a fix for their US customers soon.
