The transmission has probably been over heated. This oxidizes/burns the ATF and clutch plates. Even though your V is not due for a fluid change yet (maintenance schedule calls for change at 120,000 miles) you should do it now and probably do a 3X change to get as much contamination out of the transmission as possible.

You might want to do a forum search for other threads on "changing ATF" or "AT fluid change". There are many. I'm sure other forum members (AT guys) will also have advise for you. Stay tuned.:)

Change the transmission fluid. It is very easy to do on a CR-V.

Just drain.
Refill
Drive long enough to get the trans to get into all gears, including overdrive.

Repeat once more to make a total of 3 times.

Don't Flush A Honda Transmission

Red, your slipping. You forgot your usual admonishment to never flush a Honda automatic transmission.

Red can explain it better, but you should not get your transmission flushed. It may clog passages with debris.

Flushing

Again, I am not an expert on this, but if you read the link that Tsmithvt provided, you will see that what Honda calls "flushing" is actually draining and refilling 3 times with some driving "on the lift" in between.

What you need to avoid is external power flushing machines. Apparrently they can displace crud from harmless places in the transmission into some of the tight flow passages and create transmission problems.

Print the info in the link and take it with you and ask if this is the procedure that they intend to use. If they are going to use a power flusher then ask to see the service manager and show him the printed copy of the link and demand that they follow Honda's recommended procedure.

Also note, you must use Honda ATF.
