Default valve adjustment 2001 CR-V

I am going to adjust the valve clearance on both of my 01 CR-V's, before I
remove the Valve cover there is another item that has to be removed I
beleive its called the intake plentium.

Before I remove(plentium) it by removeing the 4 fasteners, does anyone know
if there is a gasket where the plentium meets the intake manifold. I am
concerend that if there is a gasket, it will tear.

I don't think that the owners manual mentions checking valve clearance on
the 01 models, as the in previous models, I have heard its a good idea to
check the clearance.

I have a Haynes manual but it only covers 00 models and there is no mention
of the plentium when removeing the valve cover.

thanks

Tom

You should visit the local Honda dealership and talk to the person at the
parts counter. Ask him to show you the diagram related to the plentium.
The diagram should clearly show whether or not there is a gasket and the
part number of the gasket. If there is a gasket in that location, I advise
you to buy a new one. It's a great idea to replace any gaskets instead of
making use of making use of the old gaskets. Old gaskets are more likely
to develop leaks than new gaskets.

Hey, "Jason"...what is a plentium?


Anyhoo, for the OP, look it up yourself at Majestic.

A "plenum" is a chamber to connect a duct to a manifold. My old Nissan had
one between the throttle body and the intake manifold. What a hassle! It had
to be removed to change the plugs, and it had wiring bundles supported on it
and various vacuum and cooling lines.

Since that chamber is meant to be removed on occasion, the gaskets are
surely some kind of synthetic rubber or nylon, like inside the air
filter box. They will be reusable. Just slip it off and do your thing....

One of many, no doubt.

P.S. When you do the adjustments, make sure to set them to the loose
side of the spec, since they tend to tighten on the first generation
CR-v. Wouldn't hurt to write a note in your owner's manual that says:
Every 30,000 miles / 50,000 Km. Same interval for rear differential
fluid, formerly called CVT Fluid, now called Dual Pump Fluid.

I called a Honda dealer today and there are no gaskets in the plenum, or
where it mounts to the intake, the book says not to mess with the valves
unless they are noisy, as they wear they get tighter, I also believe its
bullshit to have to be adjusting valves when there are non-adjustable
hydraulic.


With all the spark plugs out I am going to try and rotate the engine with
the p/s pump nut, as I am a concerned with using the crankshaft pulley nut
and it coming loose,and not having the ability to re-torque it, if I can
rotate the engine with the p/s nut I will check the adjustment on the
valves, if not off to the dealer I guess.

I intend to replace the spark plugs with NGK, the gap in the owners manual
calls for 0.04 gap, doesn't seem like much of a gap.

The last car I had with hydraulic lifters (an '84 Nissan 300ZX) suffered
from collapsed lifters. I made the mistake of only replacing the collapsed
ones the first time, then when more collapsed I replaced the rest. A good
waste of three afternoons the first time, one long afternoon the second. I
hate hydraulic lifters now.
