    Hi, was wondering if you still have the noise issue or if you found the solution. I have an 04 CRV with noise coming from same area. No satisfaction from Honda. Thanks. Jerry

    Thanks for the feedback. I'll let you know if someone finds a solution. Jerry

    Wow.... 2001 CR-V and you are shifting at 1500 RPM? I'm surprised you haven't been run over..
    ...................................
    You made me laugh! Maybe now I'll stop getting the finger from old ladies, as they leave me in the dust. :P

    Thanks so much guys, all these years, doing it wrong, thinking I was doing a good thing for the car.

    Thanks so much!!

    How did that say they were going to do that if the roof interior is rusting. on my 06 the sunroof interior seems to be part of the frame.

    Hi

    I have almost 32000 miles on my CR-V 04 EX. Recently I have noticed
    a single click noise while braking. It sounds about 0.5-1sec after pressing
    the braking paddle. It seems that less louder click is there when
    in the follow up step accelerating. The noise sounds to me similar to
    the electric relay and it can be heard on the drivers side only.
    I guess it is not nothing serious but a bit annoying, so please
    help!

    Thanks !

    Would this problem be detectable when Honda hooks up their diagnostic scan tool? Thanks.
  • Hi Jerry,
    I have the same problem as you do, just started about a week ago. My 04 CRV (owned since new) just started getting a clunking noise under the passenger seat (or between the two front seats, can't really tell), but ONLY when we go over a moderate ALL CAR bump. Doesn't happen when just one wheel hits a bump. Haven't tried turns yet but will test that. It almost sounds like some part is just loose underneath and needs to be tightened to the frame but I doubt it's that simple. I have about 25,000 miles on it and drive it as carefully and "nicely" as possible so I have no idea what could have caused this.

    I do feel though that if you at least have this documented by the dealer BEFORE 3yr/36,000 and they can't fix it at the time, they still might fix it for free after the warranty is up. I agree, this shouldn't happen but if this is the worst thing that happens to my car for the next 100,000 miles, I'll feel lucky. Still shouldn't be happening! Let me know if you find out anything else. I'm going to the dealer today for an oil change so I'll ask them about the noise and see if they have any new answers.

    I also just purchased an 06 CRV EX on June 3. I get the same vibration at about 70 mph on the interstate. It seams to get progressively worse as your speed increases. It seems like it could be the tires, but not sure. Should I take it to a dealer to check it out, or just carry it to a Bridgestone dealer? Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

    Check tire pressure.

    '98 CR-V 4WD Automatic 76,000 miles - and now a transmission problem (June 06). Bought it Certified-Used off-lease w/ 30,000 miles. Doubtful that I'm under any kind of warranty.

    Looks like something broke loose in the differential that then caused two 1/2" pieces of metal to chip off the transfer case's collar (inside the differential of course). Imagine what happens when a metal piece gets in between the gears - shutter/grind. Car is now at the shop undriveable. Shop is looking for used differential.

    Not sure to repair or scrap.

    Argh!

    is this a pattern??? Any one have luck w/ Honda?

    Should I have it put back together and towed to Honda??? Any one have luck w/ Honda?

    Sorry. That one is not a common problem.

    I have no idea what could have caused that, but it sounds (to my non-mechanic ears) like you could have experienced a bad case of binding in the drivetrain. Typically, that would result in problems with the rear differential before the tranny, but ya never know.

    Whether to scrap or repair would depend on the cost to get it fixed.

    I've got 42k miles on my CRV, and it looks like the tire tread is down to 4/32 in on the stock Bridgestone Dueler HT's. From what I've read on some of the posts in this forum, I guess I'm lucky they've lasted this long.

    I'm looking to replace the Bridgestone Duelers with BF Goodrich Radial Long Trail T/A (Costco has a good deal going on these right now). We'll see how they go.

    I have and 04 and had a similar rattle that was more on the front wheel (car has about 32K). Turns out it was just a loose strut. Fixed under warranty

    Now that the weather is getting warmer, I've noticed a problem with my fresh air inflow through the vent system.

    My 2006, bought in November, is my first CRV. I notice, when the outside air temp is in the low 70's, and I turn the heater knob all the way off and turn on the fan, the inside air temp climbs to high 70's or low 80's. I can feel that the air coming out the vents is slightly heated.

    I called Honda and spoke with service rep., who said there is no adjustment that can be made, and I would have to live with the airflow picking up engine heat.

    Has anyone else noticed this? I have never owned an auto where I had to turn on the air-conditioner when the outside temps where so low.....
  • While driving on city street I experienced a sudden jolt to my 2001 CRV. The yellow check engine light lit up and I immediately noticed a loss of power. The transmission 'D' (Drive) starting flashing green on the dash. I stopped and put transmission in park. Red park light showed normal but light on 'D' stayed green. Turned vehicle off and restarted CRV. The power returned and transmission seemed normal. Yellow check engine stayed on. What has happened? - Please help!

    A code (or codes) was stored which will tell the problem.

    Drive faster so that the air flow thorugh the engine bay is higher and does not heat up the air as quickly. The air intake is at the base of the windshield, which is at the back of the engine bay, and the hot air from the engine bay tranfers to the intake.

    You can try installing a snorkel from Hummer, which relocates the engine air intake to above the roof level, but I am sure one can adapt the snorkel to work with the CR-V cabin air intake.

    Another option, is to tilt the sunroof, if equipped. It will allow the warmer air, which rises, escape, and will increase the airflow through the cabin wihtout the MPG hit that lowered windows give (mpg loss is about the same as A/C on)

    This is a major problem with Honda and should be recalled...My AC blew up on a road trip from San Antonio. Honda says it will costs about 1800.00...When you get at 50000 look out...

    I have a 2000 CR-V. For the past few months, the engine idles rough for about 5-7 minutes after it's started. It's a lot worse when in gear. Sometimes it will stall. Doesn't seem to matter how cold it is, but it only does it after it's sat for many hours. Once it warms up, it runs just fine. What could this be? Thanks......
