    Hey guys lately I got the classic problem of the CRV shutting off while driving and at idle. Went to see my mechanic and he cleaned the throttle body, changed the spark plugs, the air filter, the gas filter and adjusted the timing. I went home and instead of shutting off the rpm was going close...

    First off, before you say “there’s lots of threads about this, do your research.” I have, lots of it. So 2000 Honda CR-V with about 155,000 miles that doesn't want to idle. Problem has been going on for about 6 months and I cannot find the culprit. It seems to be worse as the car gets up to...

    Hey! I have had an idle air code going off for over a year, and tried many things but so far no solution! Model: 2003 Honda CRV LX automatic trans Symptoms: About once every 30 drives, the idle surges. Only after the engine is up to temp, and only when I'm lightly...

    Getting a little concerned, have 24k miles on my 2018 EX, and when I'm stopped at a light, it feels a lot rougher idling than usual. Is this normal? Any ideas of what it could be? The RPM's are holding at around 1200, so nothing to do with the engine revving, but it just seems a little...

    I had clear the code ran fine for a few minutes dropped down to 1200 RPMs then it started surging any other ideals, :confused2:

    I am having a problem with the engine rpm at idle on my 2007 CRV @ auto transmission. When warm the earratic idle varies between about 600-1500rpm. I have read in numerous searches that there are several possible reasons for this including vacuum leak, air in the cooling system, dirty throttle...

    My 2015 is just now out of warranty and I want to change the idle since the dealer would not do it. Can anyone tell me how to up the idle so that it does not shake during stops? If I can only raise the idle by 100 to 150 RPM I believe it will make a hugh difference. Suggestions, etc.?

    Not 100%, but it happens sometimes after driving for a while and or when the engine fans kick on. Most noticeable when sitting at a red light and the car is in drive. The car never stalls, but definitely a rough idle when it happens. No issues when I accelerate away from a stop. 2007 CR-V EX...
  9. Greetings & Introductions
    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...

    just noticed tonight. thing runs and idles fine. only when COLD, come off idle (such as a stop light) and it seemed like the around 1000-2000 range it "surged", as if you rammed the gas and let off multiple times. not crazy noticeable and jerking the car all over, very subtle. little higher...

    Came back from an hour drive the other day and left my wife's 2017 CRV 1.5 turbo idling in the driveway as we took a few things out of the trunk. While I was at the front of it, I heard a rythmic whooshing noise as it was idling. Took a video with my phone from from the passenger wheel well...

    what's idle suppose to be on these 4 cyl engines when warmed up, mines about 800; does this seem normal? cold starts and idle in park/neutral is around 1500rpm. trying to diagnose low fuel economy; was around 20/21 city, then I adjusted valves, changed spark plugs, and new air filter; the...

    Hi! How many are you here that experience vibration during idle drive. I always encounter this especially if im in 80-100kph. I thought it was the aligning of my tires or lose bolts. I consulted the honda but they just told me tha it’s normal. Anyone who have the same issue?

    My 2003 crv has intermittent idle fluctuations when driving in the city. It usually sits at 900 rpm, which isn't too high, but 1 in 10 times I'm in and out of gear to park the idle increases and fluctuates around 1100-1500 rpm rapidly. The code p0505 (idle air code) is recorded when this...

    Just as the title states. I changed the transmission fluid on my CRV last week. Since then I’ve noticed that the vibration at idle I was experiencing before is no longer there. I did the change at 22,500 mi. Before, the vibration went away at idle only when I turned the air up significantly, or...

    Hi all, New to this forum. I have a 2000 CR-V. Recently I have problem with idle speed. Right after cold start, I have to wait for 15 minutes before the idle speed is stable. During those 15 minutes, the idle speed is very low, going up and down under 1000 rpm. If I don't wait for 15 minutes...

    Hey. I'm running out of ideas. I have 2004 Honda Crv with 120k miles on it. It just recently started idling very rough with the AC on, and upon inspection I noticed that the cooling and condensor fans were not blowing. the a/c is ice cold when moving, but blows warm air at idle. The car slowly...

    Hi, I have a question regarding idle reset for my 2015 CRV. My understanding is when you do idle reset, you ensure anything that draws power needs to be turned off and obviously don't touch the gas pedal. What would happen if I leave something on when the idle reset is happening? Would the...
