You can add coolant yourself. They are concerned taht if you drain the system or flush it, that you won't get all the new coolant back in and end up with air trapped in the system, which is hard to purge.

    If you are replacing coolant, just try to park uphill when you do it. On ramps if possible. You want the radiator opening to be higher than the engine.

    Also, leave the radiator cap loose when refilling and initial running of hte engine. This will burp the air bubble. Then, tighten the cap fully.

I Have 105,000 on my CRV the check engine light came on, is that one of the normal intervals? Nothing seems wrong had service done at 100,000. thanks Iggy

100,000k is a typical mileage for timing belt replacement. Check with your mechanic that this was done and that the indicator relates to this.

Can you tell me what should be done on a 90,000 mile servicing for a 2005 honda Accord. I am getting different quotes from different dealerships/facilities. Thank you!

You need to have the cam belt & water pump replaced at 110,000 miles not 90,000. You should have the transmission fluid changed, brakes & all hoses inspected. The coolant should be drained, thermostat replaced and fresh coolant installed. Of course the air & cabin filter should be replaced every 30,000 miles. The fuel filter is permanent and needs no replacing. Brake fluid should be changed unless you have already had this done. Serpentine belt replaced at 110,000 miles with the cam belt.

2005 Honda CR-V won't go to XM radio.

"XM Ready" means that you have to have a satelite radio installed in order to have XM service. I went through this when buying my 2005 CR-V and thought that all I needed was to set up the service. If you have an XM receiver installed you can controll it on your Honda factory radio. It is very misleading.
