My Honda CRV overheated lost pulling and engine stopped tried to start it but it couldn't .. I checked the plugs only to find plugs are submage in water and mixed with oil and petrol.. what could be the problem?
My car,a 1st generation Honda CRV overheated and was brought in one of the branches of Honda in Metro Manila. They advisor told me the cooling systems are affected so the radiator and other connecting parts have to be replaced. I was just sort of shocked that the radiator alone could cost 46,000php ! I read in your estimates that a radiator could cost $500plus and that's about 25,000php plus in peso. I was given a quotation of 65,000php plus for the radiator and labor replacement . Isn't that too much?

The engine check light suddenly goes on and then the engine switches off. The has to wait for roughly 10 mins before it can start again. The problem gets worse during the day.

Car dealer sold me a wreaked car. Got it home and my dad wouldn't let me drive it because he found out the rear end drives sideways. Can this uni body be fixed on its own? If not can it be switched out to another cry just different year?
When engine stops, the tach surges back anf forth from 0 to max rpm for a minute or so, then stops. Sometime is there is a very faint "thud" when the tach stops surging (and this is with the engine, fan, and everything else completely off). Car usually restars after a few minutes or so, with a very mild backfire, suggesting accumulated fuel. Took to my ususaly excellent shop and they plugged in diagnostics and drove for a week and could not repete the fault. No diagnosis given. When the random engine cut out happenes the "check engine" light is on. Read various comments like this but no one mentiond the mystry tach surging or mild backfire on re-start.
I got it replaced and it has now happened a second time!!!! what destroys a distributor!? I NEED HELP
Hi I have been having ALOT of trouble with this problem for the past five months. Ever since I replaced the front right cv axle, the seal has been leaking. Initially I had the seal replaced, at a Honda dealership...twice. Did not work. Then had the seal replaced at another shop. Still leaking. Had axle replaced at Firestone. Still leaking. Had another mechanic who swore that it was the wrong axle try yet another complete axle and now it is leaking again. Differential bearings are fine, not worn. The transmission is apparently fine. DO I really just need an OEM axle??? Ive heard that maybe the Honda Cr-v can only have OEM? I am going out of my mind. Please help. Thx
It overheats when I drive more than 50kms.
There is no water leaking into the engine oil.
It has had a new radiator and water pump fitted recently
Get an estimate and never overpay again
