  1. Gen 1: 1996-2001 (UK 1995-2001) CR-V
    Alright experts... I drive a 1999. It was recently stolen and recovered. The thieves cut the CAT out and I’ve been chasing problems ever since I got it back. When I picked it up from impound, it wouldn’t hardly move in Drive. I had to start in 1st and get up to speed before putting it in...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
  9. Gen 1: 1996-2001 (UK 1995-2001) CR-V
    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...
  10. Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    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...

    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...

    Hello all, As the title says, we are having an issue with our transmission when shifting from 2ed to 3rd. What I feel is a shutter and it seems more pronounced when the fluid is cold. It's pretty infrequent but it's there. At 35k the dealer said "no codes, so no problem" and suggested that a...

    I own a '06 Honda CRV EX with an automatic and 238k miles. It runs terrific and is in excellent shape(something more rare in salty Minnesota). I have a question that might be normal with shifting but think there might be a problem. My car shifts into overdrive around 30 in normal cruising and...

  16. Dear Honda:
    Just finished a long family road trip and have gotten pretty familiar with the pluses and minuses of this car. I love the powertrain, especially the engine and AWD system but have become quite frustrated with the lack of a manual shifting option on the auto transmission. What's the point of...

    My 2012 owner's manual indicates that D3 should be used for going up and down hills and towing etc. 1 is described to increase "engine braking and locks the transmission in 1st gear." Could either of these act as a "low range" for AWD? I mean I know that the AWD kicks in on wet or slippery...

    I have a gen1, b20z with auto. When in D it shifts at about 6,500. But when should I shift if I do it manually in such a way to gain the best performance?

    So I was wondering if it was harmful to my transmission if I were to be switching in and out of neutral while driving. Whenever I am coasting down a long hill or anything like that I sometimes shift the car into neutral, and then shift back into drive after coming to a complete stop. Sometimes...
