Q: Do I have to use the exact type of valve stud on my CRV?

asked by on

I got a stripped valve cover stud and I was wondering if any bseries valve stud will fit or do I have to be the exact one that fits the crv
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there - Honda uses metric nuts/bolts/studs, so any stud with the same metric dimensions will be suitable, regardless of engine manufacturer. Remove one of the remaining good studs for measurement, or simply take one of the good ones in to your neighborhood parts store for a replacement.
