  1. Hard cornering the car enters 3k rev limit

    Problems & Issues
    If I corner hard, the car suddenly stops revving over 3000rpm, it only seems to happen on flat or uphill corners. I descended a mountain road today quite enthusiastically and there were no issues. But on the way up I had to do the ignition off and on ro reset it several times. UK spec 2003 petrol.
  2. Auto occasionally won’t rev in gear

    Problems & Issues
    Hi I have a 2005 CRV auto petrol (only 70k with full history) which starts first time from cold, no idle problems, however sometimes when you select D or R the engine seems like it won’t rev, therefore the car doesn’t move and may cut out when you try and rev. If you select P the car revs fine...
  3. 2009 CRV - Hi Rev from cold - and - Auto Lights

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    Hi, First time post, great source of info so far on this site. My daily commute sees me dropping down a steep hill immediately from cold. Descent takes about 60 seconds. Is it ok for me to put the CR-V in 1st gear, and descend using engine braking - from cold? Revs hit about 3800 when doing...
  4. Engine won't rev over 4k RPM?

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Is this normal? My 2017 CRV EXL won't rev over 4k RPM. Does anyone else have this issue? Thank you.
  5. Transmission Shifting slow from fwd to rev

    Gen 1: 1996-2001 (UK 1995-2001) CR-V
    I have a 2001 Honda CRV with about 166,000 miles on it. Recently, ONLY when hot, the shifting becomes somewhat erratic and if for any reason I have to shift from FWD to REV or vis a versa, it wont do it until you rev the engine some then slams into the disired gear. As I said, this only occurs...
  6. Rev Limiter?

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I had a weird lag accelerating and wasn't able to repro. So tonight sitting in driveway I gave it gas while in park. I am not rev'ing the engine, thats the engine doing it. Is there really a rev limiter @ 4k RPM? This doesn't seem normal. Anyone else have the same issue...
  7. Rev limiter in neutral

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    I was going through systems on my 2015 crv lx with 31,00 miles that I just purchased for my wife. I drive a 98 crv with 100,000 miles 5 spd stick. I noticed when I revved the engine it only went to about 4.000 rpm and acted like a rev limiter I take it this is normal for protection? I never...
  8. Tachometer rev upon startup

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Has anyone else observed when starting the engine that the Tachometer display shows revs to full redline before dropping back to idle? It doesn't seem that the engine is actually revving (thank God) - just the display bar.
  9. 99 crv very high rev upon starting engine, normal after warm up

    Maintenance and Service
    Me again. Another problem I've been troubleshooting on my 99 crv is this: When I first start the car the engine revs high up to around 1500 to 2000 rpms. Then slowly comes back to normal. Of course this is terrible for the engine since the oil isn't moving yet. So I usually try to put it in gear...
  10. 2001 crv hitting 2500 or so rev limit

    Problems & Issues
    Just changed timing belt now 2001 crv hits rev limit when driving. Looked at timing marks they look fine. What else can I check?
  11. CRV 2015 is Unsafe

    Problems & Issues
    The extremely high rev turned out to be the new CVT transmission downshifting on a small hill, or just heading up another. Drove the vehicle with the Honda Canada engineer. He recorded 3000 rpm (it must have been 4000 rpm for me, driving alone earlier). Any such rev is quickly calmed by a touch...
  12. Engine light on and rev counter

    Problems & Issues
    Just popped out and after a few miles the rev counter stopped working and check engine light has come on. Seemed to run a little lumpy as well. Any ideas or clues would be great UPDATE..... The engine has cooled down and now the rev counter works again but the check engine light is still lit ??

    Hi . I have a Honda crv 2004 2.0 litre petrol and the problem I have is if your driving along and take your foot off the accelerator the cars revs wont drop for about 5 seconds then it idles which can be quite dangerous. What im trying to say is that there is a delay in the revs dropping until...
  14. 2012 EX Vibration/High Rev When Starting

    Problems & Issues
    This started happening about 4 or 5 months ago. Occaisonally when starting, it sounds like the engine revs high for a 1/4 second or so and then idles normally. I mentioned this to the service rep at my last service appointmement, and he said that it was normal, especially if the AC is on. It was...

  16. Engine won't rev in gear

    Problems & Issues
    Engine won't rev. above 1000 rpm once it is in any gear (under load). Engine starts but with low rpm ~400 rpm then idles low ~500-600rpm. Engine will rev up in neutral but with somewhat delayed response. Headlights and a/c will cause engine rpm to drop and not recover. Once in gear engine will...
