2002 Honda CRV All Wheel Drive Problems Accellerating

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...

    To really experience what I'm talking about, take it out to a safe place in the snow sometime, and mash down hard on the accelerator.



    Hold onto that steering wheel!



    Take care,

Hi.! I bought a Honda cr-v model 2003 and did not have manual book,how cal i tell if its two wheel drive or front wheel drive.is there an indication where can i look? Thanks..


Depends on the model, if it is all wheel drive it should have AWD on the back window.
The Honda CRV uses very smart technology to have AWD. Let me explain it simply. The CRV is essentially a front wheel drive car, but there are sensors mounted on all the tires that sense slipping. If the computer determines the wheel is spinning faster than the other ones, it uses hydraulics to engage the rear end differential and presto..All Wheel Drive. You do nothing, no switches, no levers, the computer does it all for you. If it is indeed AWD, you can look under the car to see if you have a driveshaft going into the rear differential (axle)

Please vote if this helped! Thanks, Mike

Smell of burning rubber rear offside wheel area


Hi there! Check out this link.
http://www.automotivehelper.com/topic175126.htm
this link will take you to a forum full of people with CRV's who are having the exact same problem. It seems to be with almost every year of the CRV as well. Unfortunately Honda has no explanation or solution for this problem. I have a 2009 CRV and have not had this smell, but I have been having a ton of other problems with it. I have been incredibly dissapointed with this car, and will never get another Honda. I hope you have better luck than I, and be careful with it cause I think there are some serious problems with these CRV's. Good Luck!

Is Honda CRV cars four wheel drive?


Hi

The CRV is produced in both front wheel drive and four wheel drive versions. However in UK and Australia it is only available as a 4 WD as the front wheel drive option is not available in these countries.

The answer to your question therefore is that it is produced in both 2 WD and 4 WD but is dependant on what country you live in and the model variant.

Hope this helps. Please do rate my answer. Thanks.

2002 honda crv air filter change


Hi!

Can you specify if you are referring to the engine intake air filter or the cabin air filter?
If you are referencing the cabin air filter, the attached youtube video should help.

I originally created the video for the Odyssey, but found out after looking at my dad's CRV that it is essentially the same procedure as the Odyssey, and have also noticed that the same stands true for most Honda vehicles built between 2005 and 2009.

Happy motoring!

this happens alot on older vehicles most often times because the coolant hose shrink and expand around a fitting. try and tighten all coolant clamps. this often is all it takes to solve the problem. you should also look to see that all seals around heads of engine show no seepage
