    Problems & Issues
    Hi all, I'm a newbie here. i just bought a used 2008 CRV from my local honda dealer with only 34,000 miles on it! It came from an elderly couple who kept it in the garage and rarely drove it. It has all of the service records etc. Anyway, I've only had it for two days and sometimes when idling...
  2. 05 Automatic CR-V Transmission solenoids/shifting problems

    Problems & Issues
    Hello Everyone, I recently decided to buy a used 05 CR-V automatic with 158k miles, after hearing about these vehicles legendary reliability and quirky character. It drove really nicely and just had a minor exhaust leak when I bought it. I drove it everyday to and from work (16 miles) for...

    My 2017 crv will not shift to P from D.
  4. 2000 CRV shifting issue

    Problems & Issues
    Hello My 2000 CRV isn't upshifting properly. The slightest grade causes it to either remain in the lower ranges or downshift into passing gear or lower, even at 60-70 mph. I've never had any other vehicle ever do this before. Transmission fluid is clean and was changed at a dealership by the...
  5. hesitant shifting

    1996-2001 Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen 1)
    2001 Honda CRV automatic is not shifting gears as it should, it will stay in second or third until I let off the gas a bit. Today was traveling on a highway and with cruise control on was going 65, then it dropped a gear and stayed at 4000 rpms until I turned Cruise control off, took foot off...
  6. Cvt shifting question

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    How many of you actually have your cvt shift like a conventional transmission? I’ll try to make a long story short. 16 months ago sunroof fails they replaced everything, 6 months later leaks the adjust glass, 2 days ago leaked again so I went to the dealer today and they adjusted it again...
  7. Results: Trans fluid "flush" on my '01 CRV SE

    1999-2001 Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen 1.5)
    This past weekend I "flushed" the auto trans on my 2001 CRV SE. I just bought the car and had noticed the strained shifting prior to purchase; I knew a trans fluid change was in immediate order. All the gears were shifting pretty consistently between 3-4k RPM. I picked up 10 US qts of Honda OEM...
  8. CR-V didn't simulate shifting when floored

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    Yesterday I had the opportunity to do an acceleration run in my CR-V from 0-60 with my foot to the floor. I live in a congested suburban area and such an opportunity rarely presents itself, so I figured why not. I wanted to see what would happen. I put my foot to the floor from a stop in D...
  9. Shifting to L at high speeds? CVT transmission

    Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    I have a 2018 EX. Sometimes on the highway I want to pass someone so I shift it into S to get a little better acceleration. I was wondering what would happen if I accidentally shifted it into L instead? When parked and trying to shift it into S I sometimes overshoot and go into L so I know it's...

  11. Transmission Shifting slow from fwd to rev

    1996-2001 Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen 1)
    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...
  12. shudder while shifting on 2014

    Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    We have 246K miles on our 2004, runs great so we bought a used 2014 from CarMax (about 35K milers) and now noticed ( several months later) that the car sometimes shudders while shifting. Lasts about 5-10 secs. Wife is afraid we might have transmission problems. Is this normal on the newer...
  13. Shifting trouble

    1996-2001 Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen 1)
    I can drive my CRV around town all day and it shifts great, when I go up a steep hill at highway speeds it shifts down and the rpm's go to about 3500 - 4000 but when I hit about 90 kmh it will not shift back into overdrive until it slows right down to about 80 kmh. Anyone have any ideas. My...
  14. Slight clunk / knock sound on drivers side when shifting from reverse back to drive

    2007-2011 Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen 3)
    Can't get my figure this one out on my 07 FWD. I've looked at the usual suspects. Sway bar links and sway bar bushings but seem to be OK. Ball joints seem good and so do the control arms. It only happens slightly once shifted back into drive from being in reverse and just barely hitting the...
  15. 2007 CR-V shifting issue at low speeds

    Problems & Issues
    We have a 2007 CR-V with about 75k mileage, we're the original owners. It recently started having trouble when shifting at low speeds, especially if coasting. For example, if I'm coasting in slow traffic or don't come to a full stop it will simply rev up the engine when I hit the accelerator...

  17. 2009 Transmission Problem - Gear Shifting Delay

    Problems & Issues
    Hi everyone, So I have an 09' CRV with about 115K miles on it. Over the past year the transmission has been giving me some issues that I'm concerned will get much worse if I don't find out what's going on. Anyway, the transmission shifts smooth (no shudders) but it seems to take its time when...
  18. 2016 CR-V SE Chirp After Shifting Into Gear

    Problems & Issues
    Hi all, I did some searches on the forums, and I couldn't find any previous threads regarding this topic, so I'm hoping someone can help shine some light on this issue my parents are having with their 2016 SE (with just over 6,000 miles registered on the odometer...) When shifting into gear...
  19. shifting issues

    Problems & Issues
    Hi, my CRV has problems shifting from P to D and D to R (or R to D) and D to P. It's not a fuse. I have been told the issue would cost about $700. They believe it is a select lever bracket set issue, PN 54200-S9A-A83. They aren't completely sure this is the issue and would need to remove the...
  20. down shifting

    Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    hello people; 13V here. How many of you do it? The V can be peppy out of the eco mode but I'm in the eco mode all the time. I don't try to hot rod around but down shifting in eco mode is fun. I usually DS when I'm going to stop from a hill but I've been doing it more than just that. Try it as...
