Question about Honda CR-V

1 Answer

98 Honda CRV power/overheating

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.

I have a 98 honda crv that blew a hose which we repaired but now coolant wont o from resevoir into the radiator. Its not overheating but both the malfunction and service engine lights are still on


if it doesn't suck coolant back from the reservoir on cooling down it can be the radiator cap, hose problem to the reservoir or hole in the cooling system
run the fault codes to see what put the engine light on

2000 honda crv overheated and died upon deceleration when entering emergency lane now refuses to start why sensor switch or what


Most likely you have a blown headgasket from overheating. Fill radiator, with cap off, crank engine. If coolant comes out of cap like a fire hose, the head is warped. It will usually start if you clean/dry the spark plugs, but just to get it to a shop or home, if it's a short distance.

98 crv won't start


Check compression and timing belt. If belt is ok and you have compression, check to see if you have a pulse at the injectors. You use a device called a NOID light (basically a light bulb that plugs into the injector plug. Unplug the injectors one by one and plug the light in then crank the engine. Light should blink on and off if the system is working properly. If not check for a bad crank sensor, blown injector fuse and wiring harness. Hope this helps.

Car has been sitting in garage for past 10 years, on blocks. what do you recommend before trying to start? it needs new battery.


you need drain fuel tank.fuel tank probably need to be removed and cleaned out to remove all sediment in bottom of fuel tank.remove each sparks and label them.squirt some clean engine oil down the spark holes into cylinder bores to help lubricate cylinder walls and help seal the piston rings to build up compression.replace fuel filter.best to change spark plugs and wires.check all brake hoses they more likely old cracked. i would change brake fluid bleed out all the old brake fluid out of the brake system.also change power steering fluid and change transmission fluid and filter also change engine oil and oil filter.replace the antifreeze and all the coolant hoses and radiator hose.replace thermostat and radiator pressure cap.replace battery and add new full tank of gas.you should be ready go. check ignition timing also.

Car using excessive gas


Has it had a recent tune up? Spark Plugs, wires, air filter, fuel filter, eng. oil, pcv, fuel injection. Believe it or not makes a big difference with something as simple as that.

Overheading 99 deville


The fans don't kick in until around 225 degrees.

As for the overheating, Check for coolant flow at the Purge line,this is a common problem on the Northstar.
There is a small diameter hose coming from near the top of the coolant tank,this is the purge line.
With the engine idling,pull the purge line from the tank,if there is no coolant flow from this small hose,it is blocked and this will cause overheating.If the hose is clear, check for blockage at the nipple on the tank.

Regarding the misfiring, have you changed your spark plug cables?

VERY IMPORTANT....only use AC Delco spark plugs and wires.

Spark plugs ....AC Delco part number 41950

Plug wires....AC Delco part number 748Q

Ignition problems are common if you use anything other than the above OEM parts.

check your wiring for dirty connections or broken wires, you may have wires that are rubbed through or connectors that are not making full contact. you will need an ohm meter and check wires for continuity. a wiring diagram will be needed.

Where do if find the thermostat for 98 honda crv. i thought i disconnect the right hose but did not see any thermostat


follow the top hose from the radiator to the engine... where it meets is your thermostat... two or three bolts hold the hosing on... replace the gasket when you replace the thermostat... and note copper plug part goes in the same way as the old one.
