Is this other that demands done?

Yes, this is something that demands to be done if you desire to stop potential engine damages that will need very high-quality repairs.

Your engine is of the interference design, which means that once the timing belt snaps, pistons and also valves will crash into each other, causing… a lot… of internal damage. Due to the fact that nobody have the right to predict when the belt will certainly snap, it is a an excellent idea to replace it ~ above the schedule encourage by the vehicle’s manufacturer.

In order to save on labor expenses if the water pump is in require of instead of at a later date, it is cheaper in the lengthy run to change the water pump at the very same time.

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

You have a 2.4L 4-cylinder engine and also it uses a time chain. The 6-cylinder Honda engine provides a time belt and it to be not accessible on her CR-V.

Gosh, this seems choose a really huge error in the manual! I’ll need to figure this the end in about 40,000 mile on mine vehicle.


StevenMazzi, figure out whether you have a time belt; if girlfriend do, absolutely acquire it replaced. The factor the water pump instead of is argued is because you have to do many of the same work-related for both jobs and it i will not ~ be inexplicable to need to do a water pump replacement prior to your 2nd timing belt replacement.

jtsanders is correct, native what i’m seeing the 2013 CRV appears to just come with a time chain. Therefore there’s no time belt to replace.

OP, space you outside the unified States? If so climate it is possible Honda readily available the CRV with an additional engine there that does use a time belt. Examine under the hood top top the emissions lable. Go it say something favor L4-2.4L (K24Z7)? If so, no timing belt.
