Question type: General

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.

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!
