I just bought an 01 CRV a couple weeks ago and was trying to do an oil change today. The last oil change I believe was done at a Honda dealership. I was able to get the drain plug loose, but the filter is a diiferent story. Torqued on super tight and the diameter is very small compared to other filters I have used on Hondas. The smallest wrench cap at AutoZone is not small enough. Looks like its time to head to the mechanic.
