Question about 1999 Honda CR-V
2001 model CRV, 52000 mile, automatic, this car is jerky when moving off from a standstill. requires delicate and close control of gas pedal to make it smooth. Is this normal? Any suggestions?

I had the same problem and traced it to the joint between the plastic bottom and the metal body. This is a common fault, you would new a pressure test to confirm.

Yes it does. But I would clean the throttle body first by taking off the hose that comes from the air filter to the throttle body, held on by a steel clamp. Hold open the throttle plate and spray it down with a brand name carb and choke cleaner. Keep me posted please.

Honda say thats not true and to wait until the car tells you when to change it. I have a 2008 CRV and you should and can wait till the oil say 15%! We took ours in after a long road trip for our first oil change. We had over 5K and the oil said 65%. The guy said that we did not need to bring it in. We still had change it while it was their but the car goes around 8-9 K on a oil change. A little wrench will come on and the oil life % will come on when it reach15% and will come on every time you start the car till you get it changed.

If you have about 1/8" of slop that is normal. If it is worse than that do you have the rubber spacers on the top posts of the radiator that go in the holes of the radiator mounting brackets. If you need to you can remove your mounting brackets and bend them down a bit to add tension. This will calm some of the slop down; you want it to move a little bit as the vehicle flexes and hits bumps. A fully stiff radiator will soon be a broken radiator.
