  2. Loud "thunk" under acceleration in all gears...

    Performance Modifications
    okay, I picked up a awd 98 crv pretty cheap, engine runs great. Car is super clean. Once it is in drive, and you begin to accelerate, it makes a very loud, and physically noticeable noise, that's hand in hand with a jerk, or a thunk. Wondering what it could be....The guy I bought it from said it...

    Problems & Issues

    Just recently started hearing loud bump from rear when hitting a small bump in road. It is not a metallic but rubber or plastic. I have completely removed the spare tire, and no change.

  5. 98 crv - Very loud clunk when turning wheels.

    Problems & Issues
    I've bought a 98 CRV with 302000km on it from auction. My problem is that when I'm in any gear other than park and I turn the wheel left or right, I get a very loud clunk from the engine/transmission (they both move when the noise happens). I have checked the mounts and they all look good and i...

  8. Very loud rattling sound when starting the car

    When I start my 2012 CRV it emits a loud rattling sound for about 3 seconds that is really troubling me. To me it sounds like a pulley or the belt tensioner. I replaced the starter but no change. An interesting phenomenon is, this sound generally occurs only the first time the car is started...

    So this is the 2nd time in a week this has happened. Driving in snow, approximately 2~4 inches of snow on the highway the exhaust is so loud I thought it was a clunker next to me.

  15. Loud Engine Noise When Starting

    Problems & Issues
    When cold starting our new to us 2014 CR-V, there is a loud squeal/grunt/knock type of noise just as the engine starts. It quits almost immediately.

  17. Loud, Thumping Windshield Wipers

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    We had quite a rainstorm this weekend, and on high speed the wipers sounded like a rubber mallet pounding the windshield. I'm not sure if part of the noise is the wiper motor itself. Has anyone else noticed this? We've owned many different makes/models of vehicles over the years, and I can't...

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    All, Have you all figured out how to adjust the Apple CarPlay volume setting when you are receiving a phone call? I can't figure out how to lower the notification when receiving a phone call. I would love the "ring" to be set at the same volume my radio is. It's really annoying because when...
