we have to replace the water pump and and I need to know were the mark are for the timeing belt

How do I find more information and troubleshoot the problem? Is it possible to diagnose the problems without going to a dealership?

The problem becomes more noticeable on the highway at higher speeds 50+ mph and is very noticeable compared with before we had the repair on the axle seal done.

Hello, I own a 2010 CRV EX 2WD since new, and since new has this aggravating thing that I figure is Honda way for this vehicle to have better gas mileage. I'm not the only complainer about it by the way; I recall dozens and dozens of other drivers having the same issue as me, mostly at the CRV forums. Here it is:

When freeway going on a slightly up-hill the transmission refuses to switch to a lower gear, the CRV bogs down loosening momentum and speed. If I depress the gas pedal, up to 1 1/2 inches nothing happens, if I depress further the car (let's call it car) takes off like a wild bronco, and soon after it reverts to a higher gear and bogs down yet again. It is impossible to maintain a steady speed when travelling over the slightest up-hill incline. Question:

Can the transmission computer software be programmed to make it more willing to switch gears at freeway speeds? For instance to "read" when the gas pedal is depressed a 1/4 of an inch (not almost 2 inches) and switch to lower gears, one at the time (or two if the pedal is depressed further) rather than allowing the vehicle to loose over 10 miles per hour before it shifts?

This is such an aggravating condition that had me looking for other brand vehicles, but I love this CRV, and within city driving the transmission is near perfect, always willing to shift to lower gears, always easy to keep a steady rate of speed, even going up-hill, with the slightest hint of pushing the gas pedal.

I did all the "service bulletin" changes that Honda recommended, including the 10-077 at the El Cajon, CA. Honda dealership.

I figure that this change should be possible to perform, just because of this:
Under the same conditions, the same long hills of freeway 52 in San Diego, if the cruise control is set to a particular speed, say 60, 65, 70, the transmission switches gears eagerly and rapidly, as soon as the vehicle looses @ 3 MPH it switches to the next lower gear. If the incline becomes more pronounced, it still will switch to lower gears to maintain the speed set by the cruise control, eagerly and quickly, never letting more than 3, perhaps 4 MPH before switching down, AND, most importantly, maintaining a consistent rate of speed.

Please help?

have changed timing belt and all that goes with the problem then a wk later the belt shredded again changed it and now it wont fire but will turn over

My sparkplug got loose and came out while engine was running. Shop says head has to be replaced. Really? Why can't it be fixed with a helicoil?

When I turn the key it tries to turn on but it wont. The parked light turns on but also the drive light. Like if it was in drive. After leaving it for more than an hour it turns on fine. I was told it had a sensor on the shift gears. It has me going crazy!!
