#5079 of 6928 TWANG NOISE FROM THE FRONT SUSPENSION THAT SOUNDS LIKE A SPRING CONTACT
Jan 12, 2007 (5:09 pm)
I had a 1998 HONDA CRV.
It has 82000 Mileage on it right now.
Every time, I start up my car in the morning, the RPM goes up to 1800 RPM. At the same time, TWANG NOISE FROM THE FRONT SUSPENSION THAT SOUNDS LIKE A SPRING CONTACT appeared.
2-3 Min later. The RPM goes back to normal, as well as the noise.
Is it normal? or just some problems causing this noise?
#5080 of 6928 2005 CRV rear diff 'groan'
Jan 16, 2007 (1:27 pm)
I listened to a groan from the rear of my 2005 CRV EX for a few weeks when making a hard turn, and then searched this forum and wohooooo!! I found the mention of having to change the rear diff fluid much sooner than the recommended 90K. My CRV had about 30K, picked up 2 quarts of the 'dual pump fluid' from the honda dealer and had my garage change it - no more groan.
Thanks to those folks before me who posted this problem, and solution.

coincidentally my rear diff. also started to groan in the last couple of weeks (at 39,000mi.) I seem to remember reading some time ago in this forum that a typical fluid change at a Honda dealer was about $75.00 so I called a few of my local dealers and got pricing $55, $77, $95, and $99. I went to the $55 dollar shop and watched them do the job. My CR-V was on the lift for 15 minutes.(actual hands on time was about 5 minutes) 2 qts. of fluid was 12.50 (retail). that leaves about $42 for 15 minutes ....or about $168 per hour for labor and overhead. If I had gone to the $99 shop from not knowing any better, the labor charge would have been $86 .....or approx. $340 per hour...what baffles me is that this is less labor intensive than a $20 oil and filter change.....any comments on why dealers try to gouge to such extremes...
#5082 of 6928 2003 CR-V Head Gasket
Jan 17, 2007 (5:33 pm)
Coolant has leak inside motor, suspect head gasket problem, CRV has 79,000 miles. Is this becoming a common problem for Honda CR-V owners? Email me at sriverida.net stuck 1,000 miles from home and worried about repair costs.

You picked a good week to be away from home. We're barely reaching single digits during the day!
In any case, if you keep the conversation here then everyone will learn and benefit.

Sorry to hear about your problem. This could end up being an expensive fix. Not good when the coolant mixes with the oil. We to have a 2003, but with fewer miles. My search on this site for 'check engine light' helped me diagnose a throttle body problem before we took in for dealer diagnostic. Keep us posted. Hope this problem is not as common as the A/C problem is on 2001-2004 models.

I can't believe no one has complained about a distorted windshield. I have had mine replaced once with an equally distorted piece of glass. Scheduled to have it replaced again. Yes, the service guy sees the distortion. I have even seen other 2007 CR-V's with the same vertical streaks in parking lots. It feels like I'm looking through someone's glasses...and I have 20/20 vision. Anyone sensing this?
#5086 of 6928 Expensive Throttle body repair
Jan 20, 2007 (6:38 pm)
I need some advice. I was just informed that I need a throttle body repair on my 2002 CRV. I took it in with the indicator light on, I had no symptoms. I've read other people's postings about this problem and wonder if I also can talk them into repairing it for free since it appears to be a very common problem. Does anyone have advice on this subject? The repair is around $1200.
Thank you for any help that you may have on this subject.
#5087 of 6928 High revs in crv between gears-manual tran.irst post here.
Jan 21, 2007 (7:02 am)
Just bought a 2004 crv-lx with manual transmission,18,000 miles.
The engine revs ( 200-800 rpms ) btween gears on acceleration. Better somewhat after warming up.
Other manual tran. have not done this (1987/1989 accords).
Anybody know if this is normal? Dealer not impressed.
Thanks for any advice.

Are you easing up off the gas, before depressing the clutch? Might have a little more lag, compared to your earlier vehicles.....and just take a little getting used to.
