Question about 2002 Honda CR-V
I recently bought a Honda CRV 4WD and noticed a problem whenaccelerating from 0mph. It tends to pull right or left sharp and thencorrects itself. This happened about 3-4 times so far. Is there a wayto reset the all wheel drive system? Could the car alarm cause anymalfunction? I'm not sure how sensitive the AWD system is. Has anyoneexperienced this before?
Sounds crazy, but you may have way too much air pressure in the front tires. IIRC, the tire manufacturer calls for about 36 lbs of pressure, but the little sticker on the B pillar of the drivers side says something like 26 lbs.
If you're over-inflated, the wheels may be slipping upon hard acceleration, causing the movement "to the side" that you are experiencing. Then, the back wheel(s) attempt to grip, and that corrects the "slide".
It's a real funky AWD system, and most of the time the back wheels do absolutely nothing...
