If you change the rear diff oil your problem will be fixed. Would also pay to use genuine Honda oil as per your manual..

Does the noise have any sort of metallic sound to it? I had a '97 CR-V and when I turned hard right or left it would slighty bind the exhaust sytem. Just enough over time to cause the spot welds on the heat shield over the resonator (the "muffler" behind the catalyst) to fail. When I'd turn sharp, the heat shield would lift slightly due to the failed welds and vibrate against the resonator. Took a bit of head scratching to find this one.

Take care.

Hi

Sounds more a rear wheel bearing problem ?

Check for excessive play, and noise from both rear wheel bearings and hubs, with the vehicle jacked up and supported safely.

Good Luck !

A FixYa rating would be nice...Thanks... John.

My car makes a bad growling noise. Everyone said that it was a front wheel bearing because that tire was worn down really bad on the outside. I replaced the passenger front wheel bearing, and it is still...


WHEEL BEARING USUALLY STARTS MAKING A ROARING TYPE NOISE WHICH USUALLY GETS LOUDER THE FASTER YOU DRIVE, SOMETIMES THEY WILL BE LOOSE , TO CHECK JACK UP THAT WHEEL AND GRAB TOP AND BOTTOM OF TIRE AND SHAKE, IF THERE IS MOVEMENT, TRY TO GET SOMEONE TO ROCK TIRE FOR YPU AND WATCH WHERE AXLE GOES INTO CENTER OF BEARING AND SEE IF AXLE IS MOVING WITH TIRE MOVEMENT AND SPINDLE REMAINS STATIONARY, THEN IT IS BAD BEARING, OR SOMETIMES THERE WILL BE NO MOVEMENT, THEN BLOCK REAR WHEELS AND RUN CAR WITH THAT WHEEL IN AIR AND SEE IF YOU HEAR NOISE, GOOD LUCK.

My 2007 Honda Crv is growling when backing up Honda replaced the rear differential oil at 8000miles and once again at 15k the problem has returned. Has Honda come up with a better solution than replacing...


No. Contaminated rear diff fluid causes this noise while making sharp turns. By changing your service interval to every 15k miles will keep the noise under control.

1998 Honda CR-V makes low pitched shuddering or growling noise intermittently when turning sharp right or left at very low speeds.


YOU should find that if you let off the turn a bit and not turn on hard full lock,, now do this stopped and someone sitting in the drivers seat and bonnet open and turning the steering wheel with engine running in idle
if the noise goes and the shuddering goes then its the powered steering pump is either low in fluid or airrating or if belt driven then see if belt is trying to stop on full lock and if it is then try a new belt or other wise its the pump faulty.

My power steering pump makes a growling noise even when the car is idle. The noise is louder when I turn the steering wheel. The power steering fluid has gotten low a couple of times and gets foamy.


if gets low definitely a leak foam is pump mixing fluid with air roar is pump cavitation check lines or pump for leak keep fluid at recommended level air bound unit can cause steering difficulty and or failure if need have trained mech look into problem

Growling noise when turning


I think it is the rear differential fluid that needs to be changed. I had the same problem.

1997 honda crv growling noise from rear wheels


from a local tyre and honda dealers, a growing noise at the back were caused by tyres profiles. According to them, CRV's come standards with certain brand ( Goodyear i think) and with certain size and certain profiles, so if you have got different ones at the back, it would create that noise. I've got myself honda crv 2005. hope its helpful.

05 equnox sharp turn noise


I forgot to ask if the noise was front or rear and stationary or moving so I will cover both.

If the noise is while the truck is stationary and the noise is from the front I would have to say the power steering pump. I have been changing several lately for similar concerns.

As far as the rear if the noise happens while making sharp turns and makes a whirring/growling noise while in motion its the rear differntial. What you can do yourself to be sure is find an open lot and drive in rather tight circles for about a minute, then noise should stop. This action flushes the clutch disks and stops the noise. If the noise goes away you will need to do a rear diff flush.

The fluid is very expensive so be sure this is your problem first.

In order to do the flush drive in tight circles for 5 minutes in each direction and then drain and fill the rear diff with the new Versatrak fluid.

Good Luck
