  1. 2007 slightly high idle and low speed surging

    Problems & Issues
    2007 with about 170,000 miles. Has been great vehicle. Had developed slightly high idle speed, 1000-1200 rpm. Removed and cleaned throttle body and did idle relearn. Idle about 9500-950 rom. Noticed throttle plate not closed tight even when off vehicle. Has started slow return to idle when take...
  2. Cleaned throttle body and IACV, now warm idle surging

    Problems & Issues
    2001 CRV with manual transmission. I'm third owner, bought it November 2018. Was having a cold idle issue in colder Minneapolis December: engine would turn over and idle at about 500 for a few seconds before climbing to a healthy and steady 1600 rpm. No problems while driving. I could live with...
  3. Surging and Shaking

    Problems & Issues
    I have a 2006 Honda CRV with over 180K miles. Don't know if I have a transmission problem or not. It used to only be when I was traveling at 30MPH where it would shimmy/surge. This would stop if I let off the gas or tapped the gas pedal a little harder. It was very intermittent. Now it...
  4. Surging Idle - only in park & neutral

    Problems & Issues
    I recently purchased a 2001 CRV 2 wheel, we have recently changed the spark plugs, distributor cap & rotor, & idle air control valve. we have also cleaned out the intake air manifold, and also the throttle body. The engine has a surging idle between 1500 and 2000 rpm and is consistently...
  5. Cruise Control Surging Update

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    On level ground or slight decline, our 2017 CRV EXL will overshoot, then ease off and slow down then accelerate again, and so on. Rather than just hold speed fairly evenly. The MPG indicator shows this and even the speed is varying by 1mph. I'm never had a car surge/hunt like this. This is...
  6. RPMs surging and Drive indicator light flashing on and off

    Problems & Issues
    I have a 2015 Honda CR-V LX AWD with about 33,000 miles on it. It had about 17,000 miles on it when I purchased it, and it has been a great car! A month ago, I was about 20 minutes into a trip to another town for an assignment, had the cruise set at 55mph, it was about 25 degrees Fahrenheit...
  7. 2005 CRV light surging at constant partial throtte

    Problems & Issues
    For about 2 months now my 2005 CRV AWD, MT w/90k miles has been surging while cruising at a constant speed, usually highway speed, where RPM is around 3k-4k range. It is light, and mainly the driver can feel it, and not passengers. This does not happen when I engage cruise control. It is very...

Dealer shop foreman drove car and noticed problem, notified Honda and I never heard anything. After calling dealer , brought car...
  9. 2004 CR-V surging slipping problems?

    Problems & Issues
    Hello, I just purchased a used 2004 CR-V LX 4WD 5MT. 100,000 miles. The vehicle is surging/jumping upon acceleration. It doesn't do it all the time. The techs at Proctor Honda have replaced the master cylinder and clutch because the clutch pedal was hard to push and was creaking. They then...
  10. 2004 CR-V post engine change high idle w/ idle surging 1400-2500 rpm

    Problems & Issues
    We just swapped complete engine and transaxle with an identical year model, and engine started up immediately. Satisfaction was short-lived, as it started its steady, bouncing idle from 1500 to 2500 rpm. Everything sounded smooth, and the engine stabilized above 2500 rpm. Codes showed P0135...
  11. Engine light, surging while stopped, high idle revs

    Problems & Issues
    I bought my CR-V recently, a 2005 model with low mileage. Recently it's started doing something worrisome: - it surges a little when changing gears, as if the revs aren't matched during the shift like normal - when stopped in Drive, it lurches and surges and won't idle smoothly - the idle...
  12. Surging Idle / Runs Rough at Low Speed

    Problems & Issues
    We have a 2003 CRV with 103,000 miles. The check engine light has been on steady for a few months and has been running fine. The mechanic we go to could not pinpoint the problem but said it is emission related. I replaced the fuel cap and changed the plugs & wires and the light stayed off for...
  13. 2002 V MT surging and bogging

    Problems & Issues
    This is my first post. I love the fuel economy and size (esp. cargo) of my V, but I'm looking at selling my '02 V MT (137,000 km, 85,000 miles). I just can't sell it with the following issues unresolved. There is one (#3 below) that has been driving me bonkers for 3+ years. 1. Huge dump of snow...
  14. Wobbling/ Bent Crank Pulley? Surging @ start up

    Problems & Issues
    How's it going. I recently just finished up doing a head job after discovering low compression on #2 cylinder (burnt valve). Head was reconditioned, and while it was apart, I also put in a new timing belt, tensioner, water pump, front crank seal, t-stat, NGK plugs, belts, motor mount, cap...
  15. surging.

    Problems & Issues
    Hi everyone, I am new to the forum and a proud owner of a 2005 EX AWD. This is my first winter with the vehicle and I noticed that when it's cold out, it surges on light throttle when pulling out from a dead stop. I'm pretty sure it's only noticeable in 1st gear (5 speed auto trans). It is...

  17. Slight surging when cold on '08

    Problems & Issues
    Hi, When its cold out (under 30 degrees F) I notice when leaving my driveway that the engine will slightly surge with the throttle slightly open. I drive it easy until warmed up which is why its only with slight throttle applied. It does not do it once warmed up. Anyone else see this in cold...
