  1. CVT whine normal?

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    I notice a whistling sound when accelerating between 40-50 mph. It is noticeable when AC and radio is off. It sounds like a turbo whistle. How many of you experience this and is it characteristic of CVT?
  2. 2014 humming sound when backing up, help?

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    I have a 2014 CRV with 125,000 miles on it. Upon backing up, I get a loud humming sound coming from the rear of the car. It stops when not moving. If brakes are applied and I am still rolling, it is still there. The sound is not the brake pad wear indicator - not screechy like that, more of...
  3. Whine at cold start

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    Our 2007 is whining a bit when it is cold/wet when starting. Does this mean it is time to change the tensioner? Also the serpentine belt too? Does AutoZone have this stuff or should I get Honda parts? 216K and going strong! Dustin
  4. 2007 2.0 Petrol Manual. Whine in first gear.

    Problems & Issues
    Hi. I recently bought a 2007 CRV 2.0 Petrol manual. Current mileage 71,700 miles. I've only covered 340 miles and I'm part way through a 3 month warranty (not a main dealer). I've noticed a slight whine when setting off in first. Perhaps a cross between a whine and a grind. It's probably...
  5. 04 Power Steering Whine Help Please!

    Gen 2: 2002-2006 (UK 2002-2007) CR-V
    My sister's 04 CRV had a power steering whine and I replaced the pump with an aftermarket pump but it didn't fix the whine. Unfortunately she had also been filling the reservoir with non Honda Power steering fluid and the fluid was a yellow gravy like substance. I tried getting all the fluid out...

    Pretty wicked hydroplane this morning, got EXTREMELY sideways and then slung back and forth twice before straightening her out at highway speed (65ish). Ever since then, there's an electronic whine or hum that is especially noticeable when accelerating and maybe even a little louder when I'm...
  9. 2006 CRV Whining While Accelerating

    Problems & Issues
    I've got a high-pitched whine whenever my CRV hits about 3k RPM (very consistent). It's high pitched and increases in stages as the RPM's increase. I took it to a Honda dealership to be looked at and they said that it was most likely the transmission and flushed the transmission fluid several...
  10. Reprise - How many still experience or have experienced the "whine" or "whistle"

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    Reprise - How many still experience or have experienced the "whine" or "whistle" I purchased a used 2013 EXL AWD on Monday with only 50K on it. I had test driven many crvs before purchasing this one and felt they all had noisy/whiney tranmissions to some extent. This one was much quieter. What...
  11. Whine (Howl) from left rear wheel

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    Drove about 250 miles north on the Interstate--no problem. Two days later, we're driving at about 60 MPH on a two-lane road, and aside from the noisy tires, I hear a steady-pitched whine or howl from the rear. Figured it's the left rear wheel. The whine goes away when the brake is tapped...
  12. 2007 issue with whine coming from engine compartment

    Problems & Issues
    I have an '07 that has all of a sudden developed a whine coming from the engine compartment. Not sure what it could be. Looked around and saw anything from water or power steering pump to tensioner pulley. Here's a video so hopefully someone can chime in on what they think it is. Doesn't really...
  13. High pitched whine during acceleration

    Problems & Issues
    There is noise - quiet whine when accelerating gradually. And loud when accelerating hard. I think I noticed this starting after spark plug change a year ago. Could it be related? I tried putting car in park and getting rpm up to 4 but it didn't produce the sound. Sent from my SM-G930P using...

    Hello! I have a problem with a loud whining noise that seems to be turbo-related. The car has 165k km on the odo, an aftermarket high-flow DPF but otherwise completely stock and is running new oil and filter. The problem seemed to arise slowly after the DPF was installed and has been relevant...

It is hard to tell if it is coming from the front or the rear. The car drives and shifts fine. There is no grinding noise from the rear...
