Question about 2004 Honda CR-V
Hi. I have a 2004 Honda CR-V. The day after I picked it up for a routine tune up, I was driving on the highway, maybe 60-65mph when it began sputtering, losing power... (it felt as if the fuel wasn't being delivered evenly or at all.) I also got the orange engine light. I was in the middle of no where, so I sputtered to the next town to the first mechanic I could find. He thought it was an electronic problem. He showed me how to reset it with the key. (Off for 5 minutes, cycle key once without starting, wait another minute - which seemed to work, but happened many more times since then.) Took it back to original tune-up mechanic. (Was in perfect working order when I brought it in.) He said he did a diagnostic - said something about "vairable valve timing, drive train, vtech curcuit low voltage. Even though he told me this, he's not sure what solution to try first. Told me to change the oil - That dirty oil may be it. I'm afraid it will happen again with my child in the car. Solution?

I would first check all the wiring harnes multi plugs, if you have one that is loose that would cause an intermient fault and if left to progress could over heat and in extreme circumstances could set on fire, i am not tring to scare you but i have seen this have to various makes of vehicles. the connections could be arcing. if they all seem ok, obviously check the battery conections and the main fuse link that supplies the fuse board, they are usually near the main battery and are quiet say about 20mm long. another sugestion is the ignition switch could be faulty. if you can get the cowling off from around the steering column and get access to the switch, with the engine running give it a wiggle, this will also work for the wiring connections, have the engine running the checking the conections if loose or faulty it should cut the engine out, ONLY DO THIS TO THE 12 VOLT CIRCUIT, DO NT TOUCH THE IGNITION LEADS OR WIRIES UNDER THE BONNET WHEN THE ENGINE IS RUNING. Hope this helps

you have a sensor acting up on your motor have the code read at any shop for about $25 and they will tell you exactly what sensor is going out and needs to be replaced

yes, this is the case of a failed throttle body, in which case it needs replaced, the car is getting too much fuel causing the high idle. this needs replaced asap. you could proably find a small independant honda shop that could do the work for less.

Could be a fuel pump that is going bad. Some times when fuel pumps go bad they cavitate and pump not just gas but also air. If you get too much air in the line and not enough gas the car won't start. Have a mechanic check your fuel line pressure.
