  2. Weird squealing sound when in reverse

    Problems & Issues
    I know that it’s very common for Honda’s to “whine” I’m reverse however this isn’t that. This started yesterday and it happens when I go in reverse and I’m not touching the gas or break. So say I’m on a hill the sound will be louder. Then it will stop as soon as I step on the break. It’s pretty...

    My CRV squeaks / squeals whenever I turn on the heater or AC. It sounds like it's coming from the middle of the car. It started happening a couple days ago and it has been rather cold outside (9-20f depending on the time of day). Is my heater / ac unit going out? Any help would be much...

    My Honda 2006 4WD CRV squeals whenever I make a right hand turn, however slight and at all speeds. It seems to be coming from the passengers side front. Sometimes, the front groans whenever I turn either direction. I already wiggled the front tire around to see if it was the wheel bearing...

  16. Squealing when accelerating

    Problems & Issues
    My CRV squeals when I accelerate. The best way I can describe it is that the sound is similar to a cricket. Sometimes it makes a quick chirp and other times it squeals for long intervals. It always stops if I take my foot off the accelerator. This sound started about 8 months ago. Then, it only...
