First time poster, hopefully this is in the right place, apologies if not. Don't tell me off...I have an FRV, not a CRV. Presently, I wish I did...
I am in the UK, but can't see how that matters:
I need some help to diagnose a problem on my 2.2 i-ctdi FRV, 2006 please.
Car has 130k, full Honda history. Recently started to die when warm, generally under load. Revs drop off, fall to about 1000rpm, will start again, do it again, etc. Does not respond to throttle pedal at all when in this mode. Did this 7 times in 3 miles recently.
Went to Honda, they 'diagnosed' the same fault code as I had, and the AA had, which was for a clutch switch issue. I asked how this could provoke the symptoms prescribed, they had no answer. Also asked them to change fuel filter. Wallet considerably lightened, car did same thing on way home.
No other fault codes. Took it to a trusted and experienced local garage, they tested the EGR valve, ok. Turbo seems ok, not throwing any codes for overboost etc. They did a leak off test on the injectors, they are worn, not consistent, but we discussed whether this could create the switch off like effect the car presents, and were doubtful. I have cleaned the TPS connector, and any other under bonnet connectors, with an air line. No difference. Thought about the fuel filter in tank, but again don't see how this would only show a problem when car is warm.
Bit stuck now. Car undriveable, no fault codes suggests mechanical issue, but I'm not so sure..most everything on that car has a switch or feeds into the ecu, garage and I stuck. Any suggestions from those more knowledgable than me gratefully received.
