I had a similar problem. Turned out it was a vacuum line on the firewall on the passenger's side had come off. When you accelerate, the line sucks air and makes that long "hooooooooooot" until you let off the gas. Have you noticed it's burning even MORE gas? You'll need a bright light, even in sunlight to see the lose hose line.

Sounds like a possible alternator or power steering pump. Both have bearings that will "whine" when bearing is worn. The power steering would be the first thing I'd check (common on Chrysler products)

Problems with accelrating and decelerating and costing on 2009CRV


Hello there, First I would like to mention that turning your wheel had absoulutly nothing to do with the problems you are experiencing don't beat your self up over it. To me it sure does sound like you have some thing going on. You might want to take it to a reptutable reapir shop that you can trust to get a second opinion, not pointing fingers but sometimes warranty work is not the favorite thing some dealerships like to do.

I think you do need to address this before something may happen because the noises and symptoms you are describing are not normal.

Good luck and I hope this helps. Allen

Does it happen when you accelerate and decelerate? If so, it might be a motor mount or transmission mount. If it only happens on bumpy roads, check to see of the battery is held down tight, otherwise I'm at a loss.

Vibration on the floor underneath gas pedal


I would venture to say your exhaust is hitting your frame, or, you may need new motor mounts. The exhaust is what I would lean toward. If you can imagine your exhaust sitting under your vehicle, and the fact that the vehicle has a little age, the motor mounts probably give a little, causing the motor to move slightly on acceleration and deceleration, thus your exhaust is going to move, and may be vibrating on whatever its touching. Good luck.
