I have seen a lot of post on this matter on a few different CRV & Honda sites but there does not seem to be anyone posting about getting this sorted.
My cr-v is the 2.2 ctdi 6mt 2005 model, When i bought it i had a problem with the fuelling & thought the shake was part of the problem but since getting the fuelling sorted the shake is still there, It seems to come from through the car rather than through the steering, I get it from start very lightly but when i hit between 30 - 40 mph in 3rd gear especially going uphill the car shakes violently if i lift of the gas the shake goes away,If im going up a hill in 4th gear at 30 - 40 mph the shake is there but not as violently, If i really hit the gas in 2nd or 3rd it shakes violently on any road if its on a flat or on an incline or decline, I have taken the propshaft of with both u-joints being fine & it is still there i have changed the engine oil, oil filter, gearbox oil, flushed the diff burnished the clutch then refilled the diff, rotated the tyres & had them balanced, I have had the steering aligned & been underneath it to have a look at the driveshafts & cv joints but there does not seem to be any problems with them they seem tight & straight with no movement or tears in the boots but i have noticed that the rear driveshafts have a lump of rust on both the n/s & o/d shafts the rust is about 2 inches long and rises from the shaft by about 1/8 of an inch im not sure if this would cause the car to shake even when i have removed the propshaft.
I know a lot of people have had this problem but i was hoping that someone had managed to get it fixed with a definitive answer as to why this happens.
I am going to put it into a garage sometime soon but i would love to get it sorted on my own.
Any help or advice would be gratfully accepted..
