  1. 2001 CR-V stalling

    Problems & Issues
    I've read threads on stalling, and hope someone can help. My 2001 CRV was not engaging when I would start it. You could accelerate and the rpms did not go up, the car didn't move. I have had the timing belt replaced and a lot of other work done, including having the starter replaced. The...
  2. Distributor cap & rotor replacement

    Problems & Issues
    2000 Crv - 1rst - after hours of trying to find this tiny "set screw" to remove the old rotor I concluded there wasn't one and jiggled the old rotor off. Look like there is a hole where a set screw may have been and fell out? 2nd-two rotors came with the new distributor cap and rotor kit a) one...
  3. I desperately need advice! Distributor change killed my car.

    Problems & Issues
    My neighbor who is a self-professing CRV expert and honda enthusiast messed up my car and I need advice. In a nutshell I needed an e-test which failed and yielded the code P1381 and he told me I needed a new distributor cap. I took it to another friend's shop to see if they would pass it and...
  4. Rebuilt head & distributor, no start issue

    1996-2001 Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen 1)
    So I put everything on the Mutt back together, connected all of the connectors and clipped all hoses and such back where they go. So I tried turning over. And it turns over just fine; no resistance or anything. Nice and strong. I can smell fuel when I crank it for a while, as it won't...

  9. Gen 1 2001 CRV leaking oil at distributor, what's easier to do, new dizzy or new seal

    Problems & Issues
    So basically I've noticed this is somewhat common after searching and reading. I believe my problem is the outer seal that seals the dizzy to the motor. I've got a pretty substantial leak coming from the distributor and although the engine is running fine, i'm losing a decent amount of oil...
  10. 2001 CRV: Changed distributor, now car dies when throttled

    Problems & Issues
    :mad: Recently, I started my 2001 CRV A/T to warm it up after almost a week of not driving; while vehicle was idling, I took out the air filter and dusted it. Then, the engine died while the air filter was out! And wouldn't start back up. Diagnosis: Dead ignition coil. Sadly, I couldn't get...
  11. New distributor really made a difference

    Problems & Issues
    A few days ago, unexpectantly my CRV started and then died, not to re-start. There was no fire @ the distributor so I had it towed to my local NAPA Shop. Diagnosis was a NEW Distributor, not a Cap or Rotor, not a Coil or Igniter. When I picked it up the next day I was completely surprised with...

  13. Timing Off - Distributor Can't Turn Further

    Under The Hood / Performance
    The timing on my 2000 Honda CRV is off, but the distributor won't turn any further. I had the same problem on the original distributor and the bearings were starting to squeal, so I replaced it and the timing is still off with the distributor turned as far as it will go. The car has been...

  15. Which distributor to buy?

    Maintenance and Service
    Hi guys, Just picked up another CRV 99 EX with Auto transmission, 4WD, 104,978 miles. Good thing it's not due a timing belt;) Before going to look at it I was told the MIL was on for a TDC Sensor code. Turned out to be P1362. The owner didn't want to put money in it since Honda was quoting...
  16. Distributor diagnostics?

    Under The Hood / Performance
    So when my CR-V died the other day, I assumed it was the old "fried dizzy" issue as described here: http://www.crvownersclub.com/forums/22-under-hood-performance/15089-cr-v-eating-distributors.html, especially as the symptoms described by my son fit the reported symptoms given to me by the...

    Hello I have been using the forum for a while now since my ageing and ailing 2000 cr-v started acting up (and found it and you all very helpful.) A failed emissions test confirmed my worst fear. Burnt valves. I have to put my hands up to not having cared for the car very well and I can only...
