My CRV was diagnosed as #4 cylinder misfire.There is no telling when it will happen.Mechanic has replaced plugs.When it happens my engine will almost stall and engine light will flash.It will eventually stop after a few min. or when I restart the vehicle.

I want to install it myself but the manual has no directions.

I was putting my car into Reverse (R) and it did not move so I put some gas. It jerked and went into R. It shifts into P, D, R smoothly but I can not shift into 1 or 2. The transmission fluid looks okay and there does not seem to be any leaking.

Is this a non-interference motor if not then is there a chance at getting lucky that a broken timing belt did not bend the valves ?

My new Honda 2011 crv seems to die between the speeds of 40-50 mph. It seems to shift to early and losses power. I had it serviced by the dealer and they said this is normal because of the torque. Was told just to accelerate and the car would then shift. Still doesn't seem right and my 2005 cr v never did this.

My auto start switch keeps on turning off; how do I turn this back on? Where is it located; I'm tired of bringing this back to Honda for this reason only?

it happens occasionally and the code is p1160

The car got an accident

this happened during the snowing

Hi there,

I've got an Anker towbar to fit to a 2004 CR-V Sport. It all looks fairly easy apart from taking out the plastic trim along both sides of the boot. I need to drill 8 holes to fit the 2 brackets, but I can only see the dimples from underneath the vehicle. I dont want to just apply preasure for fear of snapping the plastic. Can anyone tell me how I might best approach this?

Many thanks,

I cannot use my key in any of the locks as it feels like there is something in the lock. Now I'm having the same problem with the ignition. Dealer tells me that ignition and locks have worn out - though I hardly ever used the passenger and tail gate key locks. Does this make any sense?

my daughter brought her 2002 CRV to dealer's service dept. for oil change and waited for the car. They told her when the car was ready that they had checked her suspension system and that it needed to be replaced almost immediately. She asked if they had removed all four wheels in order to do this. They said they did not have to-just had to put car on lift and do a visual.

A few weeks ago, the front part of my drive shaft broke off the transmission, but I was able to take it to my brother's garage. I then learned the gear shifting cable was snapped, oxygen sensor's wires were snapped, and the exhaust pipes were damaged. I would like to know how much it would cost to have it fixed.
