New to the Forum. Love my 2012 CRV, but...

In a snowstorm the other night the car slowed on its own and refused to accelerate. RPM stayed low even if peddle at floor. Tires not slipping. No warning lights. Not high centered. The snow was very light and blowing, icing up the windshield and getting into the grill. Car slowed to 5 mph on a hill, got up to 10-15 on flats. Made it home, but barely. Today it drives beautifully.

I have to believe the problem was snow related.

Is there a sensor that iced up? Could the air intake be plugged?

Any suggestions appreciated.

You know in the back of my mind I remember someone else had a similar problem. I could be wrong I think it was caused by the radiator and sensors getting clogged with ice/snow. Did you notice the engine temperature being hot?

BTW, WELCOME!

You could check your air intake but if it was blocked completely the engine would stop. Maybe snow/dampness driven under the bonnet.
Have a good look under the bonnet and if you cant see anything obvious I would have it checked at a competent garage. A lack of power points to a fuel problem or electrical fault, or a turbocharger fault-if it was a diesel.

Is it possible that the rear differential overheated due to slippage? (I know you **said** no slipping.) The diff incorporates a shut-off if if that happens, and then you would be in FWD only.

Were it driving along perfectly normally before it went into this limp home mode?
Any warning lights to check engine lights?
Fuel level?
