#23 of 89 Re: 1999 Honda CRV [glivingston]
Aug 12, 2008 (10:55 am)
I bought a 1991 CRV for my grandson about 4 months ago. It has just under 60,000 miles. It was a Canadian's car who left it stored in Florida most of the time and only drove it when he came to Florida for the winter. It's In perfect condition except the transmission has started to slip or hesitate after setting at a stop light / sign for more than a minute or so. It doesn't slip / hesitate when you make a short stop then start out again nor does it slip / hestitate when it shifts up after a short stop or when just driving around. I took it to Honda dealer who said it's something internal to transmission. I don't think my grandson has been hot-rodding it but I suppose he could have. Any ideas? Thanks.
Replace the transmission fluid with Honda ATF Z-1, drive 10 miles, replace, drive, replace, drive, replace.
If this does not fix the problem, then you have a real problem. Most of the times, the issue is with people taking their Honda to non-Honda shops that put generic or "compatible" fluids in it.
#24 of 89 automatic transmission flashing light
Jan 16, 2009 (6:29 pm)
My Honda is flashing its green light on the d shift lever occasionally. I pull over and stop the motor and restart and it goes away, for a while, then comes back later on. Has anyone had this experience with their car, or know what the problem is or the remedy is. I would greatly appreciate some help here, thanks

Read The Fine Manual = RTFM. Flashing "D" light indicates something that is mentioned in the Owners Manual.
Owner's Manuals are usually the best starting place when looking for information.
P.S. You will need code scanner to determine what the actual problem is.

Did you try to pull the lever toward you before shift down from D to 2?
Below is the cut/paste of 2001 CRV manual ...

Replace the fuid using Honda ATF fluid only. Drive a little bit, replace again. Drive a little bit, and replace again.
When you replace fluid once it only replaces about 30% of the total fluid in the transmission.
#31 of 89 late shifting post transmission repair job
Apr 02, 2009 (7:51 am)
My 98 crv needed a transmission repair. The car drove great but the 2nd gear was slipping. After the rebuilt transmission (a Precision product, I believe when I was verbally promised Honda parts), the car shifts late with an increase in engine rpm. It is not much but very noticable and makes the job unacceptable. My mechanic, who said everything was good before the work was done including the engine, tried to tell me that the engine had an issue now and that ALL Hondas shift late. How can we resolve this in the best interest of all parties concerned? Please help me fix this.

I just got the same problem with my 2003 CR-V yesterday. The dealer wants me to bring in the car to fix the Transmission Solenoid with an estimated cost of around $450.00 + tax. Where can I go to get code scanner to determine what the actual problem is without walk blindly into the dealer shop?
