  1. 2010 Issues (Transmission and suspension/steering?)

    Problems & Issues
    Hello! I have a few things I need to figure out for my car. 1. A few weeks ago, I was driving uphill at about 60 mph and it seemed like my CR-V was having trouble shifting up (not sure which gear it was trying to shift to). The engine sounded louder than usual. When I came to a stop off the...
  2. Dry Bearing Grind Sound On '98

    Problems & Issues
    I'm new to Hondas (and Japanese cars in general) and purchased a 1998 CRV LX, AT, 4 wd with 189,000 mi. After spending around $2K to replace worn suspension and rear brake parts it was driving just fine until it sat for a week and I started it on a particularly cold morning (cold for where I...
  3. Grind from the passenger side

    Maintenance and Service
    Folks: 09 CRV here. I'm hearing a slight grind / creak from the passenger side that is getting worse. It is only heard on slow turns - like in a parking lot. It's faint, but getting louder. I don't want to just start replacing parts - how do I track this down? I was thinking CV joint...
  4. Possible Wheel Bearing & Hub Assembly problem? Rotational noise coming from rear.

    Problems & Issues
    Hello all, I'm here trying to narrow down the possible causes of a noise I've started hearing recently coming from the rear wheel area of my father-in-law's 2008 CR-V EX with the AWD. The noise is louder at higher speeds, and I'm calling it rotational because it seems/sounds like it's directly...

  6. 1997 CRV Starting Grind

    Problems & Issues
    I have a 97 CRV with 268k miles. It has started making a bad grinding sound upon start up during cold mornings <35 degrees. It does not do it when it is warmer out, even if the engine is still cold. I believe it is the starter sticking and not disengaging correctly. Below is a YouTube video...
  7. 1st Gear Syncro Grind

    Maintenance and Service
    Hey there, I have a 1999 CR-V, and just had both the clutch master/slave cylinders, as well as the clutch kit replaced along with a flywheel resurface. Now the clutch engages like a champ, but when I'm moving forward, and depress the clutch pedal to the floor, I can't even move the shifter into...

  9. 5-Speed AT Trans. Grind?

    Problems & Issues
    I notice this every so often when the windows are down or the one time it was fairly loud. Upon accelerating (Gentle, moderate or fast) when the transmission goes for the 1-2 upshift, there's a grind-like sound. It does not do it all the time, and it's not just when it's cold. Thoughts?
