  1. Suggest Maintenance for over 150,000 miles

    Gen 2: 2002-2006 (UK 2002-2007) CR-V
    Hello! I am new here and maybe I missed it. I am seeing a lot of Hondas with high miles, but I am not seeing much for what maintenance is recommended at different miles. This seems easy to find for CRVs under 120,000 but I have a 2002 with 168,000 miles and I want to do my best to get another...
  2. RPM's

    Problems & Issues
    Hello all, I just purchased a 2015 Honda CR-V, four days ago, certified/used. My first Honda ever. I noticed twice when I was going down a hill, right after I would brake the engine would reeve a little and the rpm's would go from 1000 to 2500 and then back down. I don' think I ever had a car...
  3. Rough Idle, RPM's normal

    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...
  4. RPM flucuating at steady speed!

    Problems & Issues
    Just purchased a 2019 LX. First car with CVT transmission.I noticed yesterday at highway speed of about 65 mph the rpms were fluctuating about 3 hundred I could see it on the RPM gauge and feel it. I put it in cruise control and it did the same thing. Is this normal for a CVT transmission? It's...

  7. Wandering idle rpm when in neutral on 2007 CRV

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    I am having a problem with the engine rpm at idle on my 2007 CRV @ auto transmission. When warm the earratic idle varies between about 600-1500rpm. I have read in numerous searches that there are several possible reasons for this including vacuum leak, air in the cooling system, dirty throttle...
  8. 2017 CRV EX rattling noise at 2200 rpm

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Start to notice rattle noise from engine bay recently, particularly when temperature around 32F. Not as noticeable in drive, but if put car in park, and rev engine to 2200rpm, the sound is quite loud like lose part is going to break off. Also the resonant frequency changes with fuel level. With...
  9. 2006 rpm surge off idle

    Gen 2: 2002-2006 (UK 2002-2007) CR-V
    just noticed tonight. thing runs and idles fine. only when COLD, come off idle (such as a stop light) and it seemed like the around 1000-2000 range it "surged", as if you rammed the gas and let off multiple times. not crazy noticeable and jerking the car all over, very subtle. little higher...
  10. high rpm smell

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    i got a 2011 honda CR-V 2.4 A/T, and there is a burning smell entering the cabin (seems like coming from the AC) during hard acceleration, especially at around 5000 rpm+. Is this a common issue for 3rd gen CR-V since I notice this since the first week after i bought the car, like 7 years ago. is...

  13. Engine light on after 2000 rpm and 5000rpm

    Problems & Issues
    Hello all, I have a 2008 16V 4x2 CRV and I am having issues when I press the gas all the way down to speed up the car (like getting into a runway) and the engine light comes on. This happens when I am reaching 2000 or 5000 rpm. 2000 rpm is associated to low speed such as 30 mph and 500 rpm is...

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    Does anyone else has this issue? is it normal or can it be fixed. I encountered that around 2,000 RPM when the CRV "shifts" i hear a high pitched whistle. I turned off the radio, turned off the A/C. And this issue persists. I own a 2016 CRV CVT 2.4L Thanks!
  17. Stutter/Hesitation at 40mph/1500 rpm

    Problems & Issues
    So my wife has been experiencing something odd when she is driving somewhere in the range of 50mph or so then has to let off the gas and the car naturally comes down to right around 40mph. When she starts to use the gas again it will jolt and hesitate before it starts to speed up again and you...
  18. Are my RPM's normal?

    Problems & Issues
    I have a 2006 4WD EX 5-speed manual. I bought it from a dealer, and I have two weeks left on the warranty. I can't shake the feeling something is wrong with the engine. The car needs to shift up VERY quickly, which I'm not too annoyed by, but when I get into 5th gear, the car hits 3000rpm by...
  19. Snow driving/17 Lx/Excessively Loud RPM

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    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. When I slowed it became much louder. It seems the RPM’s are so high it takes awhile for the car to quiet down. In...
  20. 2018 CRV-EX Vibration at < 1000 rpm

    Problems & Issues
    I just purchased a new CR-V EX and after driving it for a while there is significant vibration when the engine is idling, seems worst around 800 rpm. Through the seat and door it is noticeable but not bad, through the center console it is very noticeable - enough to be an annoyance. Enough that...
