Default CR-V fires after oil change

http://www.washingtonpost.com/ac2/wp...nguage=printer

Basically, misinstalling the filter causes oil to spray on the exhaust
manifold, fire results.

Is the CR-V manifold differently configured from the same engine in
the Accord and other vehicles???????

this kind of filter/exhaust configuration is absolutely the norm across
so many vehicles, this kind of scare-mongering is just a joke. the
nhtsa fail to act on certain domestic roll-over prone suv's that are
known to have killed thousands, yet they get all worked up over a
foreign [superior] vehicle because of the possibility of some idiot
junior technician that's not got a clue???? - on only 27 vehicles????
do me a favor. it's no surprise this kind of article gets published in
the city of political lobbyists.

Just a note on fear mongering...

So on Friday it was released that 1700 people a year in Toronto die because
of poor air quality, did anyone freak out? NO of course not, why would
they!?! But when 30 people die from SARS the whole freaking city shuts down!

Why are people not freaking out about the things that they should? The air
is getting worse not better every year, I am having a kid in the next few
days (Already 4 days past the due date, don't you had poor punctuality? Must
take after his mother ) and I think I am going to have to leave this god
forsaken city because although business is brisk, dying because of the air
or worse yet having my child constantly sick because of the air quality is
just not worth it.

My 2 cents of ranting done. Thanks for listening

You bring a very good point. 1700 people die in Toronto yearly because
of poor air quality, but many more (if I remember correctly 6000) get
hospitalised because of it. And yet it barely got a passing note in the
news.

This happens because of the sensationalism of the stories. It's much
more dramatic when 200 people die in a plane crash, even though for
every person that dies in such a crash there are hundreds that die in
car accidents. Because of the disproportionate news coverage, people
have a distorted view of events. From a safety standpoint, I would
rather fly anywhere in the world than drive, but most people think the
opposite.
