2003 Honda CR-V for sale. 4 cyl, 5 speed MANUAL. All wheel drive. 219,000 miles. Star-smogged, registered until November. This thing came stock with a card table stowed away where a spare tire would be. Pretty cool.
It's throwing a check engine code PO 420 (not the good kind). It's related to the V-TEC system. I've recently had the cat replaced with a certified Honda part. Next step may be to replace the aftermarket Chinese V-tec solenoid with authentic Honda part, though it isn't really showing signs of failure. Maybe O2 sensors? When the car gets low on oil, the check engine light comes on, the car can go into "limp mode" and stall if taken above 4,000 RPM. I haven't had this happen in town (living in Grass Valley, trips to Sac and the bay,), but it's happened twice on my wife in the South Yuba River canyon since we've moved to North San Juan. Anton at Import auto wasn't able to recreate the conditions driving in town to make it go into limp mode. He said it is normal for these to use a lot of oil, you just need to check it every other time you fill up with gas. I feel like this car has life in it, it's really cool. I just need something that can drive the canyon on the daily, and I don't have the energy to figure out what it needs. I put in a battery disconnect switch, so the check engine light can be "cleared" roadside, if need be., by disconnecting and reconnecting the battery. An OBD2 scanner can't erase the code, I assume because it's emissions related.
It's been a family car, well lived in. Lots of scratches, no major dents. No pet hair.
Located in North San Juan. Does not need to be towed. Make me an offer.
