Question about 2001 Honda CR-V

Vibration at 2100 rpm

My Honda CR-V 2001, 2 WD, makes noise at 2100 rpm. That noise is some kind of vibration which I think comes from exhaust system. That can be heard only when the car is in "D" position, at 2100 rpm. When you put it in "N" or "P", even if you press gas pedal to 2100 rpm, there is no noise. Exhaust system has been checked completely and is ok.

    I have the same problem. My mechanic has replaced the motor mounts----did not fix it. He can figure it out.

    I have the same problem and nothing wrong with the motor mounts. Any chance it might be a pulley bearing or something similar. Seems to be related to light being in gear and under light torque.

    SAME PROBLEM! I've taken it to my mechanic who can't find where it's coming from. He's checked the exhaust but can't locate it. Motor mounts are fine. It started out making the sound at 2100 rpm only between 50-60mph with my foot on the gas pedal, but now (2 weeks later) it happends at 40mph and 19mph. Please HELP!!

Found the problem to be the gasket and bolts between the exhaust pipe and the catalytic converter that had to be replaced. It seems that over time corrosion erodes them resulting in a vibration of the heat shield at this RPM. Replaced both and the problem went away.

It is probably your Motor Mounts. They attach the engine in 4 places to the frame of the car. When the rubber wears out, it will cause excessive veibration.

Take it to your mechanic and tell him to check the motor mounts. For the front and side three mounts, it will probably run about $550 with the parts, im guessing.

What's your problem? Just bought a HONDA CRV ELX 4 WD 2009 that has a growing humming noise coming, it looks like, from the tires. It grows with acceleration and ceases with deceleration. The tir

Hi there i have a 2003 honda civic si when ever i am sitting idle there is a rattle / clanking sound coming from under the car it is coming from the front in the center when it makes the noise and i look...

You could have a loose bolt on your exhaust manifold (this happens sometimes with Japanese cars with little reason behind it). If you can, try tightening all of the bolts on the manifold and see if that helps. If you are not very mechanically inclined and tightening the bolts does not totally resolve the issue, I recommend taking it to a mechanic -- just mention that you think it is the exhaust manifold, or the exhaust manifold seal. If the seal is worn out, you should have it replaced and that should resolve your issue.
The reason it only happens at idle is that the engine has a specific vibration to it at low RPM's ... this is a different vibration than when driving ... stepping on the gas also increases the pressure in the exhaust system, minimizing the vibrations. You should be able to get it fixed for a pretty low price, but I would recommend doing it soon so you do not allow collateral damage to the rest of your exhaust system.

2003 Honda CR-V when the A/c compressor kicks on the engine drops 300 rpm, like it's going to stall. It's making a clunk noise when kicking on and I changed the battery thinking it was weak.

sounds like it's the iacv or idle air control valve not working due to dirt in the orifice or the iacv is burnt out and cannot turn correctly, or the wiring to it is faulty.

Good luck on the repair.

If the A/C compressor makes a clunk noise when kicking on, that could indicate a worn out compressor.

You're right, 300 rpm is way too low. It should be closer to 600 or 700 or 800 rpm and remain smooth when the a/c compressor kicks on.

Vibrating noise coming from rear of car between idle and low rpm as rpm increases noise goes away

this sounds like exhaust resonance. have the exhaust system checked, perhaps you may have hit something in the road.

1999 Honda CR-V rattles during acceleration

Usually it is a loose rusted exhaust heat shield or shields.
Slide under and tap the exhaust system and shields from front (on the engine )to back.......there will be at least one rattle heard.

Unusual noise

you mat want to have the lifters checked and re torqued if the car has more than 100k miles.

they tighten after time on thair own and will cause the engine to shake and feel sluggish.
