    Some transmission weirdness: 1. I put it in Drive, and sometimes it just doesn't go into gear at all. Cycle through the gears, then it does. Sometimes the "D" light comes on, usually it doesn't. 2. It seems as though it works it way up through the gears to get to cruising speed, but, I really...

    Hey folks, have a conundrum here that nobody seems to have an answer for. My 1998 CR-V has ran great and always started for the two years I've owned it. Saturday I disconnected the battery for a bit and when I re-connected it, the car wouldn't start. Won't even crank, just nothing. Even...

    Hi I just bought a new to me 98 CRV. It's a 5spd manual with 160,000. The last owner said it needs an O2 Sensor and there is an exhaust leak in front, which I can smell when driving. It's a small pin hole. Nothing else is wrong with it except passenger window motor looks like it's about to die...

    We've owned this great little car for just under a year, and it's now got 155726 miles on it. The radiator was leaking about a month ago so I replaced it, including all hoses, thermostat and cap. Since roughly then I've been chasing occasional poor idling. So far I've replaced the distributor...

    Hello all, Today is a very special day for me. I get to pick up my very first CR-V! I have owned many Honda's in my 20 years on Earth, but have been wanting a CR-V for a while now. My other rides are a 1989 Civic Wagovan and a 2003 Silverado 2500hd. The V I'm buying has 149k miles and a number...

    My clock is not working. From what I have learned on the internet I guess the solder connections break on the circuit board?? Is this the usual cause? And can I fix it just by resoldering it? Is it better to just buy a new clock?

    I just recently purchased a CR-V. It is in need of a lot of rehab. In this case, I'd like to revert it back to the original air cleaner assembly because I don't know enough about the CAI and have zero faith in whomever completed the mod. The reason I joined this forum and am posting is because...

    Hi! New to the forum and to the CRV. I just bought a 1998 LX manual trans awd with a blown engine. When I searched for engines it looked like the 97-2001s all took interchangeable engines - I am now sweating bullets that this may be wrong, can someone let me know if I made a mistake? The...

    4WD automatic. Shuts down and dies on the highway. Sometimes starts back up- sometimes does not. Honda Parts Counter man, Tony, said this is NOT a "main relay" aka Fuel relay issue- that the relay just needs to work one time, to start the vehicle. On his advice we replaced the Ignition Switch...

    want to know the reason why the engine is missing when the A/C switches on. Is this an electrical fault and if so what is a simple way of testing without using diagnostic tools, I have a multimeter and a tester. At times the vehicle runs / drives smoothely especially at high speed even with the...

    It's a manual transmission, excellent shape. I didn't find a deficit in horsepower (126) with the B20 engine, seemed fine for me with the 5 speed. It ran/drove excellent, smooth and easy shifting unlike the manual transmission 2002 Toyota Camry I test drove with a slipping clutch. The only thing...
