2005 Honda CR-V Question: Maintenance



Joe0789, Houston, TX, February 04, 2011, 08:22

I have new spark plugs installed, done the fuel injection cleaning, & replaced all air filters. Why am I still experiencing hard starting? Also, the vehicle comes to a slow down when I take off my foot from the gas pedal. Accelerating is also poor, not what it used to be.

    Find a Honda specialist and get the fuel pressure checked.
    Also, FYI, if you put the gas pedal down to the floor when starting, it cuts off the fuel as a 'flooding' clearing feature, so don't use much pedal (if any - shouldn't need to, it's automatically controlled) when starting.
