Is this other that requirements done?

Yes, this is something that needs to be done if you want to stop potential engine damage that will need very high-quality repairs.

Your engine is of the interference design, which way that when the timing belt snaps, pistons and also valves will certainly crash into each other, causing… a lot… of internal damage. Since nobody can predict when the belt will snap, it is a great idea to replace it on the schedule encourage by the vehicle’s manufacturer.

In bespeak to conserve on labor prices if the water pump is in require of replacement at a later on date, it is cheaper in the long run to change the water pump at the very same time.

In enhancement to the time belt and also the water pump, you should replace the belt tensioner(s) in ~ the very same time.

You have a 2.4L 4-cylinder engine and it offers a timing chain. The 6-cylinder Honda engine provides a time belt and it was not available on her CR-V.

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

StevenMazzi, number out whether you have actually a timing belt; if friend do, absolutely gain it replaced. The reason the water pump instead of is said is due to the fact that you have to do most of the same job-related for both jobs and also it wouldn’t be unexplained to need to do a water pump replacement before your second timing belt replacement.

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

It shows up that this engine in fact uses two timing chains.

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

OP, are you external the joined States? If so then it is feasible Honda offered the CRV with one more engine there that does usage a time belt. Inspect under the hood ~ above the emissions lable. Go it say something like L4-2.4L (K24Z7)? If so, no time belt.
