  1. Transmission problem with gears dropping out

    Problems & Issues
    Hi All I have a 1998 CRV and after starting it cold it runs for a few minutes and then drops out of gear (so it revs up without engaging the gears). Then I can turn off the car and in a few minutes it repeats again. Any suggestions? Gary

  7. Having Fun With This Gearbox

    Problems & Issues
    May 2009 CR-V 6-gear manual. Haven't got to grips with going up into 6th after 5th and down into 4th from 5th or 6th. Doesn't happen all the time. Once went down to 2nd instead of 4th! Otherwise it just floats around in neutral with that 'pick a gear, any gear' feeling. I've driven manual for 25...

  11. 07 CRV jerks slight when changing gears

    Problems & Issues
    I though I would run this by you guys and see what you think. I noticed my CRV sometimes gives a slight jerk when the auto transmission is changing gears. My previous car was a Civic and it always changed gears smoothly. Is this pretty normal with a CRV? I am not hearing any clunking sounds and...
