Can you put a 2006 engine in a 2002 Hnda CRV?
The engine in my Honda CRV 2002 needs replacing due to streached cam chain and bent valves, does anyone know of any problems in replacing it with a 2006 engine, same model number?
According to Consumer Reports (CR), the CR-V was redesigned in 2002 and not redesigned again until 2007...So, assuming you're swapping the exact same engine, I don't see where there would be any issue doing so. One thing strikes me as unusual though...there seem to be 2 different 2.4L engines with VERY slightly different HP? AND 2 different auto trans? Specs as listed in CR: 2.4-liter 4 (156 hp), 2.4-liter 4 (160 hp) 4-speed automatic, 5-speed automatic, 5-speed manual.
Thank you! Have bought 2006 engine and now need to freight it 2000k's.
Glad I could help, ashleyf33! So you bought the 2006 engine and it'll cost you $2,000 to ship it? ..or was that the engine price +shipping cost? Hope the installation cost is reasonable. You must really like the CR-V to be doing all of this! It is a good SUV though...I was looking at it when I was SUV shopping earlier this year for a 2nd vehicle. Good Luck with it! :)
No, not $2000 to freight, 2000 kilometres to get it here :) But its all under control now, it is being driven here in a van with tools and mechanics included, so hopefully all goes well! I do really like the car and have never driven it, definately worth fixing as it has all the extras. Thanks again!
2006 engine is installed, plus gear box. but gears wont go into reverse or shift up... any ideas?
