  1. Gen 1: 1996-2001 (UK 1995-2001) CR-V
    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...
  2. Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    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...
  3. Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    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...
  4. 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...
  5. Gen 2: 2002-2006 (UK 2002-2007) CR-V
    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...
  6. Gen 2: 2002-2006 (UK 2002-2007) CR-V
    Greetings everyone, This is my first time using the CR-V forum. First, I have a 2002 with 184,000 miles. Lately, the CR- V between cold temp and operating temp feels like it wants to cut out. When put in neutral, it stops. It's worse when it's cold outside. I was told it was the idle...
  7. Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Not this first time this has happened to me.So I own the basic 17 CRV Lx and my wife moved the car to get our van out, No problem reported. I went out a while later and the car just kept trying to start but engine would not kick over. 3rd time it caught but didn't sound great right away. My car...
  8. Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    Greetings, This is my first post! I have used an Accord version of this site for several years and now I finally got a CRV. My CRV is at 41k Miles (acquired at 32k back in July) and aside from a tailgate that refuses to open when it is cold (luckily I live in Houston), I love the car. I have...
  9. Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    I have 166,000 miles on it, it all started when we had the compliance bushings and the end links replaced, after they replaced the bushings and end links because of a front klunking noise the ride was so bad it felt like we had wooden wheels, now that it has been cold here in Ohio the struts...
  10. Gen 1: 1996-2001 (UK 1995-2001) CR-V
    My upshifts are always smooth, cold or warm, but until the car warms up, I have very rough downshifting when I increase the throttle, like the line pressure isn't dropping properly. Pnce the car is warm, it shifts fine. I have done 2 fluid drain and fills, added some Lucas Oil transmission fix...
  11. Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    I have a 2008 CRV with 130,000+ miles. For the past few months, it's been making a bang in the rear, rides rough over bumps, and has an occasional shimmy coming from the back, when I let off the gas for a second, the shimmy clears up. What could be causing this, struts? Ball joint?
  12. Gen 1: 1996-2001 (UK 1995-2001) CR-V
    Been running into some inconsistent and varied issues lately with my Manual 1999 CR-V. Issue began about a month ago as sputtering under load only, very rare, but it would happen when going up a hill around 2500rpm or lower. I can avoid this by letting off the gas and accelerating very slowly...
  13. Dear Honda:
    I have not been on this website since I joined it right after we bought our new 2008 EXL CRV. Our 08 has given us 89k of trouble-free miles. About last Dec. or Jan. I decided it was time to upgrade to a newer CRV. I was a little wary of this new CVT tranny, so I started to do a little...

    Hello, Wandering if anyone experiences a rough shift (very infrequently) on hills...usually 1st-2nd. Thanks for any feedback!!! edit: 2013 CRV, 16,000 miles
  15. Performance Modifications
    Hello, I had an engine light come on a few months ago and continued to run my 1999 CRV. In February I went to the store and parked and shut off car like normal. When I came back it wouldn't start, but had a healthy crank with key turning over. After trying to figure it out and no results I...
  16. Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    At idle in gear or neutral my 2008 CRV idles rough. Does anyone have a solution.
  17. Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    Has anyone had any success in making major improvements in the CRV ride. We have a 2010 CRV EXL FWD that rides very rough. We like the style, the tuning radius, the mileage, etc etc but are sick of this rough ride. The suspenson doesn't seem to absorb much of the road imperfections and the...
  18. Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    Hello, I have a 2006 CR-V which I got from Carmax 3 weeks ago. The first day we noticed a strange sound coming from the engine when it was cool so we took it back to Carmax. After inspecting the car they found sludge in the motor and offered to cancel the sale but after carefully observing my...
  19. Performance Modifications
    Hello, When I start my car, there is a rough idle...not too bad, but I feel the vibration on the steering wheel. I just had an oil change, fuel injection cleaning and transmission flush. Still the car has a rough idle. Can anyone tell me where I can look? I've read about IAC cleaning. Do I need...
  20. Dear Honda:
    I've had my 2007 CRV for five days. I commute 50+ miles each way to work and I am feeling every bump in the road. Is this normal with CRVs or is there some adjustment that I could ask the dealer to do? Thanks.
