I own the same year make and model, as you aproach the 100,00 mile mark a tune up is advised, replace the spark plugs, spark plug wires, and the distributor cap and pcv valve, also at 100,000 mile the fuel filter must be replaced. Now if the problem persists a maf sensor may be the culprit however before spending any money I would recomend bringing the vehicle to an auto zone auto parts store or equivelent to check for trouble codes even though there is no check engine light it is a precaution that must be taken to save money.

PS it is recomended to change the primary O2 sensor at 100,000 miles also

You can try sometime simple as checking the tire balance.

Next is the overdrive engaging too early? This would cause the engine to lug. Try driving with the overdrive off at the same speed. If the engine stays smooth you have found the problem and may be able to get the car reprogrammed at a dealer.

The EGR system can cause "bucking" when there is a defect but should have set a trouble code.

Last, would be the variable valve timing. This can cause roughness and more damage if not fixed. Should be on a scope to verify.

If you have had even the motor mounts checked I am assuming it is quite noticable. Wish I could say one thing is it, but people physically there have not found it either. Good Luck

It sounds like you have a slight imbalance on one of your drive shafts. Try going down a hill, OUT OF GEAR! at 20, then let the car pick up speed up to about 40-50mph, down the hill, without you touching the accelerator, if you don't feel any judder, then it could be a drive shaft problem. The other way to caheck this, and I WOULDN'T ADVISE IT, is to jack up the front of the car, put on axle stands, NOT on a jack and start the enging run the engine and accellerate up to about 45-50 mph, if you have any judder it is definately a drive shaft problem, hold your hand on the steering wheel, and you should feel which way the steering is pulling, that will confirm it. It's either bent or the c.v. joint is worn. Best of luck Dave. Please be careful, if you do the second option and axle stand the vehicle, make sure it is secure, front at back, and accelerate SLOWLY!

Does the shutter only happen at that speed. What about when you accelerate at a slower, or faster rate? Have you tried same speed in different gear to see what happens. I'd also consider swapping tires from front to back, in case of a bad belt in tire. Does shutter go away if you push in clutch , and let off gas when it happens?

Is the vehicle a standard or automatic transmission? Based on the components that you have had checked or replaced, and since you say that this problem is occurring when accelerating, the next place that I'd look would be the transmission. I would check for a loose, broken, damaged, or worn transmission mount. If this is a standard tranny, I would also look at a dry or seized clutch bearing or that the clutch bearing is worn or improperly aligned. Sure hope this helped and best wishes.

Hi Bill

Thanks for using FixYa. Please check the the tire pressure. On a CRV tyre pressure is critical because of the AWD setup. Also the tyres should be the same type on the vehicle. Also get wheel balancing done on your CRV. Also check if you have changed the transmission fluid, as transmission fluid should be changed after every 2500 miles.
It can also be an issue with rear differential, joint/shaft problem, wheel bearing problem or a drive hub assembly problem.

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Thanks
Rylee

Without driving the vehicle, it is hard to say for sure. However, there is a Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) that is published by Honda that involves your transmission limiter tabs (part of the rear transmission mount) causing a vibration while accelerating.
The TSB number is 04-070. I can send you a complete copy of the TSB if you want to post an email address. Or you can also probably get your local dealer to print you out a copy if you don't want your email address posted online. (recommended)

I just replaced both cv axels one solved 80% of the problem and the other solved the rest. I wasted alot of time and money on new tires, balancing 3 times and an alignment. I should have just taken it to the transmission shop that I trust.
