Question about 2000 Honda CR-V

1 Answer

Grinding noise when starting

I have a 2000 Honda CR-V with 111K. The car runs fine except for the grinding noise heard when I start the car. It does not happen every time you turn the key. However, it seems to happen more on cold mornings. Once the car has been running the next time I turn the car on there is no noise. I have taken it to shops and they have not heard the noise can therefore cannot fix it. Any suggestions on what this could be?

    I have the same thing...I remember it from last winter. I live in Texas so we don't have that many cold mornings, but it is only when it's below 50 or so. Otherwise I don't hear this noise.

    I've got the same thing going on with my 1998 CR-V. The grinding only happens on cold mornings, lasts only about 2 seconds after I release the key in the ignition, then it seems to run fine. I have begun to notice, however, when this happens and I drive a short distance, when I get out of the car, I can smell a slight burning smell coming from the car. Any suggestions as to what the problem is would help.

Grinding when turning key on to start ignition


Dodges have a gear reduction in the starter, usually. It could be wearing out. Have it checked out at a rebuild shop.

I am hearing a grinding noise when turning the ignition on my 2005 dodge ram 1500.Truck is automatic and runs fine when in driving.


Have an auto electrician look at the problem but I suspect that the starter solenoid is starting the armature spinning before the pinion gear is properly engaged in the flywheel teeth. If so the starter can be repaired either by a new solenoid or adjusting the pinion movement before the armature gets power.

Grinding noise after starting my Honda CRV 2012


Are you still under warranty? I'd check that first then take to a dealer.

Problems Starting my 2009 Honda CRV


Your post interested me, as I just purchased the same vehicle lasts month. The grinding noise while attempting to start the CRV sounds like like a problem with the starter 'clashing ' with the flywheel. When you turn the key to start there is , a small gear in the starter on a shaft that advances (moves down the shaft) and meshes with the flywheel (which is a large 'gear'). When they mesh together, the starter gear will spin, and turn the flywheel, which 'cranks' the engine over to start. When a car is old, you can experience a loud grinding noise, as the wear and tear can cause the gears to clash, not mesh smoothly. Since this is an '09, that of course isn't a wear and tear issue, something was not tightened during assembly, or is defective. You MUST bring it to the dealer, to establish that there is a problem, even if they deny it. To continue to drive it could cause damage to components (actually driving it is probably ok, it's the starting it that will cause damage). So, insist that they check it out, you may be surprised by their desire to fix it, and have a happy customer to advertise their cooperation and quick fix of the problem. Hondas are great cars, hopefully this is a rare minor assembly or defective part glitch that will be quickly fixed. Keep me posted as to your visit to the dealer. Remember that you can bring it to any Honda dealer, although I would start with the one where I purchased it. The car is under warranty, get them to fix it, and enjoy your new car.

I had front brakes and rotors replaced on my 2000 Durango. Within a week I heard something like a grind coming from the right front tire. And tonight I heard the same noise when braking but it was much...


sounds like something was jammed, or loose. I'd recommend taking it back to where the brakes were done and have them check it out in case something they did is messed up.

Having problems with turning over......


do you mean engine rolled over or cranked over and would not start?or is it that the starter would just click? or did starter sound like it was wineing and you had to keep on and off the key until it findley started? if any of your answers to thies questions is yes (except first question) its time for a new starter. as far as the grinding noise don't worry about it, that's what makes me believe its the starter. install new starter, problem solved.
