I’m a newbie 2007 owner, auto Petrol crv ex.
My question is, are all the models 2wd then 4wd once the front wheels spin?
This is what I want, but can’t find anything about it in the manual.
Thanks in advance ??
There is a middle 'differential' filled with VTM-4 fluid.
As long as the front wheels are turning at the same rate as the rear wheels the VTM-4 fluid IS fluid...when the front wheels are spinning faster than the rears (slippage on snow for instance) the VTM-4 fluid reacts by loosing it's fluidity and it becomes almost solid, thus sending torque to the rear differential.
VTM-4 fluid should be replaced every 30K miles (48K KM) and ONLY WITH 100% Honda VTM-4 fluid.
If you are having issues:
1) Make sure you have an AWD CR-V, look for a rear differential with axles going to the rear wheels (I'm sure you know this).
2) Change your VTM-4 fluid with 100% Honda VTM-4 fluid.
