Question about Honda CR-V
Recent repairs: new radiator, top radiator hose, fan and fan swithc(not the ac fan), fuel filter, spark plugs, wires, distributor, both 02 sensors, cat convertor (after market, exact fit), recent change from regular to synthetic oil) Issues: recent loss of power at start and getting up to 40 mph, also low idle at start. Other issue is loss of antifreeze with no apparant leak, overheating when sitting idle too long (hard to avoid in DC traffic). Any ideas of what to pursue next without depleting my bank account?
If you are loosing coolant and cant find any leaks check your oil level. If oil level is rising.you have blown a head gasket or cracked a head. Common when an engine over heats badly.

If your car is fuel injected it may be the throttle position sensor, (TPS) hook up a DVOM and check that voltage output of sensor is steady closed to open throttle, since 35MPH is near closed throttle, that is were to focus your attention, also the mass air flow meter (MAF) may be at fault, do you have any codes? These 2 parts donot as a rule set codes.

where are you taking the car for repairs? try meineke sorry about the spelling, i had gone in there to check to see what the deal was with my car without even having it there the guy told me the issue, so since i was stuck at or close to another shope i got my parts from advance auto and had the other shop put them on. but with your acceleration and everything it sounds like some sort of sensor or a leak some where. pop yur hood while it is rinning and take a water spray bottle and spray around the the headers and stuff. and if you smell to much exhaust coming from the front end could be a smalll issue.
