    My 01 CR-V Will fire up up on the first try, drive down the road without missing, spitting, or sputtering. Then after about 30 mins just stops running all together. Sometimes it will start back up and go another 100 yards down the road before stopping again, sometimes it wont. Once it stops...

    Problems & Issues
    Just bought used 2005 Honda CR-V, 4WD for a pretty good price, but has issues. When first starting out and driving around 30MPH and lower, it seems to be grinding, almost as if it's dragging something, and you feel the grinding. I am sure it has a bad bearing as well, most likely in the rear...

    I recently purchased a '98 CRV LX, AT, 4WD and noticed that the gas pump icon, in the speedo cluster, has the hose and nozzle on the right side indicating the fueling is done on the passenger side except my intake is on the driver's side left. This is the first Honda I've owned and the first...

    Racks, Hitches and Towing
    I have a 14 AWD A/T. I just had the tow plate professionally installed with a Fusemaster switch connected to fuse 19. The problem is when I switch it to disconnect the radio stays on.

  10. Strange A/C related symptoms

    Maintenance and Service
    Howdy all, We've had our 2007 EX 2WD since November '14, not a year yet. All was well until the first ~100 degree day this summer. We had used the A/C a lot before this, and had no trouble. On that day, several symptoms came about: 1) Lack of power while A/C is on. The CR-V behaves like it...
  11. EPS, VSA, and TPMS Warning Lights – Possibly Related to Towing

    Problems & Issues
    I’ve recently hit an electrical problem that the dealer “fixed” but can’t determine the root cause. It may/may not be due to towing it behind the RV. Short Version On a towing trip, but not immediately after towing the CRV (2014 EX), the transmission was locked in park. After unlocking the...
  12. My 2015 Touring model just paid for itself (CMBS related story).

    2012-2016 Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen 4)
    Hey everyone. First of all, I love my 2015 Honda CR-V Touring for many, many reasons. I ponied up the extra cash for the Touring edition primarily (no, exclusively) for its safety features. You see, I have survived 6 brain surgeries in the past. One could call me a brain tumor survivor and a...

    Tires, Wheels and Suspensions
    Hi, like in my other thread, I'm looking for the first gen CR-V. I found one that seems very nice and I plan on lowering it a bit (I know that some people find it stupid or else, but that's what I want to do) Although I don't want to slam it, I still want to be able to use in in winter (I live...
  16. recall related window switch question

    CR-V Owners in Europe
    Hi Last week we took our 2005 CDTI Executive in for the recall on the master window switch.

  18. New radiator overheats + A/C problem - Related?

    Problems & Issues
    This is a 2 part problem. I have 1998 CR-V, if it matters. My radiator sprung a leak so I replaced it with one of those cheap all aluminum after market radiators from ebay. It was easy enough. Everything fit ok and there were no leaks. Btw, I have never ever had engine temp problems with the...
  19. Car won't start - possibly fuel system related

    Problems & Issues
    In December, my 1998 CR-V wouldn't start easily. My mechanic replaced the spark plugs and almost immediately my gas mileage plummeted, the tachometer fluctuated wildly, it would misfire and stall and there was a strong smell of gasoline. Before I could return it to my mechanic, it "died" in my...
