    I have a 99 crv with 170K miles, begining of the summer I had to
    replace one fuel injector, now a second one is starting to go, is there
    a 'normal' life expectancy for the fuel injectors? if so, would it be
    wise to replace all three remaining injectors at the same time instead
    of chaning one a time?

    what are your symptoms? honda injectors are usually good for well more
    than double that mileage and are highly reliable. very very few reports
    on this group of genuine injector failure.

    Unless you're burning some special fuel you brewed up for yourself, (or
    nobody told you to use injector cleaner once in a while) you are
    probably mis-diagnosing something else.

    You know that your CR-V needs to have the valves adjusted every 30,000
    miles, right? If you're getting a CODE P030x where x = cylinder #1-#4,
    you're more likely smoking a valve. First time it stalls at a stop sign
    during the warm-up cycle is the time to fix it, since the next symptom
    (CHECK ENGINE light) is usually after the head is wrecked.

    Here's one of dozens of similar posts about CR-V (and Integra) valves.

    it was runing rought and the engine light come on. I took it to the
    mechanic (honda dealer) he said the code indicated a bad fuel injector.
    same thing happened at the begining of the summer with a different
    injector (which by the way they had to replace a couple months later
    because it was defective).

    I'd start running a bottle if Chevron Fuel Injector cleaner through it every
    10k or so. I've never had an injector go bad. But I do run the cleaner
