I just bought a 2000 CR-V that had spent its life in Texas as a basic around-town utility vehicle. It's tires are almost new but of questionable quality (Fisk Classic P205/70R15 M+S.)

Now that the car lives in Michigan, I've found that its traction is very poor in snow & wet. It can't even get up my driveway (nose first or tail first) when there's snow.

Our other cars are Audi A4 Quattros that just motor through anything within reason and have no trouble behaving solidly in the snow. Up the driveway with no drama.

I'm wondering if these tires should be replaced with better quality, or maybe my perception of how a car ought to perform in the snow is skewed because of my 15 years experience driving Quattros.


How much of the poor traction I'm experiencing is related to the Fisk tires and how much is due to my perception of good performance from the Audis?

Am I spoiled or is this normal for FWD with cheap tires?

Thanks for attempting to answer a subjective question.

The temp guage does not go up very far and when I turn on the heater there is very little heat and the temp drops down to nothing.

A local oil change place told me that my power steering fluid needed to be replaced or bunch of bad things will happen. My car has about 120k miles and I don't recall if the power steering fluid has been changed. I am the original owner.

Recently, I have had timing belt, all other belts, water pumb, oil filter, Sensor cleaned,fuel filter changed,all done to this vehicle. Since then, it has the tendency to not start especially if the air has been on. It also tends to stall when put in forward or backward motion. But it was running ok once it gets going until yesterday it quit on me while driving. It did the same thing today, just quit on me driving down the highway. Do you have any suggestions?

Looking for instructions for the replacement of a drivers side, rear quarter window in a 2000 Honda CRV. Trying to figure out if I can do this myself. Thank you in advance.

the indicator button on the door jamb came loose - indicates ligths left on, how do I get the button out of the small round hole to fix it?

How much should a full front and rear brake job cost?

I have a 2000 Honda Crv with about 201000 miles on it. Runs great at higher speeds, at low speeds in town and at stops runs rough and shakes. Codes on scanner are the P1399 and the engine 1 misfire codes. We have tried the tune up items such as plugs, wires, distributor cap, air filter, fuel injector cleaner. Runs a little better but still the rough idle. Not sure what to do next. We did not use the NGK plugs because I wasn't aware that I was supposed to buy those, would that make a difference or should I go straight to having a valve adjustment done. Running out of ideas and would like to not spend everything I have on repairs. Check engine light stays on while driving at high speeds and now flashes at low speeds and while stopped.

My check engine light just started coming on, we haven't noticed any engine problems other than a rough idle at stops in the past couple of days. We have tried oil changes, plugs, wires, distributor cap, etc. The original codes were the engine one misfire code and the P1399. Now that we did the tune up the engine idles badly at stops but does not stall, starts right up, drives perfect at higher speeds and on the freeway, mainly just a little shaky at stop lights. Where should I start to have this diagnosed. I bought this used a little over a year ago and it has a bit over 200,000 miles on it. I want to fix it if it is reasonable but I can't afford a new engine and still owe a bit of money on it, any suggestions??
