  1. 2014 CRV Rear Differential Leaking?

    Problems & Issues
    Hi, I replaced the rear differential fluid on my wife's 2014 CRV (77K miles A16 code) and saw oily/grimy residue on the filler hole side of the differential housing as seen on the picture. Has anybody seen this before? As you can see the barcode on the case is barely visible. Do you guys think...
  2. Memory Pull Steering Problem and Rear End Noise

    Problems & Issues
    We have a 2006 Honda CRV SE AWD. Automatic transmission with 200,000 miles. I started driving it around 160,000 and don't have service history before that.

  4. Rear differential damper on a late 2003

    Problems & Issues
    Just wondering if all the CRV's have the little damper on the rear diff? Anyone know if they all had one? I'm basically trying to track down a slight low speed wobble and replaced pretty much everything on the front end (balljoints, bearings, tie rod ends, links, arm bushes etc) as part of a...
  5. Rear differential fluid - CVT vs Dual Pump 2?

    1996-2001 Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen 1)
    Hey guys, I have a 99 CRV EX (4WD with auto transmission) and I need to change the Rear diff fluid. The manual calls for "genuine honda CVT fluid" now most videos I found use Dual Pump 2. Which one do I buy? CVT fluid or Dual Pump 2? They seem to be different...
  6. 1999 crv / 107K miles - replace or fluid change for rear differential?

    Maintenance and Service
    Hello all, I recently purchased a 1999 cr-v lx with 107K miles from auction. It makes a noise whenever I do a sharp turn and has a slight rumble. I'm pretty sure the previous owner didn't change any of the fluids, but since the car is so old and has so many miles my question is if the rear...
  7. rear end vibration

    Maintenance and Service
    In our 2013 AWD CRV we got a vibration similar to driving over washboard. This only occurred around 40 kmph and was fairly mild. By changing the rear differential fluid it went away. The last time it occurred it did not go away with the new oil so since the warrantee was about finished I took...
  8. Rear Differential - estimated costs for labor and parts

    Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    I was wondering if someone could give me a rough idea of how much it costs to have the rear differential replaced on a 98 CR-V 5MT. I had to take my honda to a service station today because when I tried to drive it and shift gears it felt like something was getting caught up or hung underneath...

  11. Perplexing thumping noise rear of 2005 SE

    Problems & Issues
    After reading many posts here and at other sites, I have not found any discussions that seem to relate to my problem. I have a 2005 SE, 73,000 miles, auto trans, completely stock. I have a curious thumping noise in the right rear that seems to manifest itself only on uphill highway-speeds...
  12. Noise when the 4wd gets in action

    Problems & Issues
    Hi Forumees: I own a 98' EX V (MT) and when the 4WD gets in action it makes a weird noise like when a truck brakes :confused:. It's like some metal on metal friction. I drained the read differential fluid and replaced it with brand new Dual Pump II and it reduced a little, but still does it...
  13. My rear differential experience with Honda

    Dear Honda: (Feedback Forum)
    We own a 2006 CRV with 63,000 miles on it. We will have owned it for four years in November. We are the original owners and I have serious doubts of ever purchasing a Honda automobile ever again. As many, I have read, are experiencing, I began to notice a sort of bumping and slight tremor while...
