#88 of 92 2004 CRV acts like it out of gas and feels hot
Jul 30, 2013 (1:31 pm)
My car has 186000 miles on it. I've had it for 7 years and its been great up until about 6 months ago. It started with a strange jerking when I let off of the gas (I'm sure the people in traffic thought I was brake checking them) I took it in immediately and was told that the throttle position sensor (TPS) was bad and that I'd have to spend over a grand to replace the entire throttle body unit. I did some research and ordered the sensor to replace myself. It ran great for a couple of weeks and then started acting like its out of gas. The computer still gives a TPS error and I feel like if that's the case again that there HAS to be something else causing this problem. I've been driving it and just dealing with the weirdness because it only does it when it's trying to shift (sometimes if its having trouble shifting I can jiggle the gear shifter and it'll slip into gear) and most of my driving now is done on the interstate without traffic.
The other night I opened my hood to after driving for only about 5 miles and it was so hot to the touch that I could barely touch the hood brace. My temperature gauge is consistent and has never gone hot.
I'm wondering if anyone has some ideas as to what I should try that will actually fix my car. I was thinking about trying the ignition switch and maybe the temperature sensor but I'd like some opinions.
Ps I have a friend with an '08 jeep compass that's doing the exact same things.

I just bought a new 2013 CRV last month, and it has stalled on me three times while driving, and when you turn air on stereo goes in and out. I took it to them scared wondering why a new car would do this. They are looking at it but now I don't even feel safe to drive it again. I wish they would offer something else reading to many bad things about the CRV..

Daughter had a issue with her 2003 Honda Accord. The engine would stall if either turn signal was turned on or if the brake pedal was pushed. Dealers and North American Honda said that they had never heard of this problem before. Dealer did a " computer update " and she still had the same problem. I made a road call from Jasper,Al to Lexington, Ky.. I replaced the "mult-function" switch, that turns on and dims headlights, and turn signals. ( 2 plastic covers, steering wheel does not have to be removed) I had a battery charger on the disconnected battery, while brother and I were replacing the switch... Battery would never go over 50% "charged"... Also, replaced battery. The old " mult-function" switch looked like it had fresh engine oil dripping out of it.. Daughter had been told that the ECM was bad and it would cost more than the car was worth..
