First, check inside the wheel wells and make sure it isnt a tire rub, the tires could be the wrong size. Also depending on the sound and feel when turning, this could mean the CV joints need replaced ( a common issue on this vehicle). Also grab the wheel from the top and pull in and out, if there is give or movement then this could be a ball joint. Also could be the dust covers on the brakes, could have been bent and causing a rub.

My engine stops for no apparent reason while driving. I suspect the crankshaft sensor. The fault goes away as seemingly at will. Any other suggestions. 2001 Honda CRV

That could be caused by any number of thing's ! Electronic ignition , engine computer , sensors , fuel pump possibly . Don't suspect anything , test and if you don't have tools or knowledge suggest you watch videos on youtube for crank sensor testing . Check engine compartment wiring harness for lose connections , wires that are bare and touching ground . Check for small animal nests , rodents like to chew on wire's . Electronic componets can cause problems like this but the vehicle won't start up again till the componet cools down . Replacing parts not knowing that it is the problem for sure is not very good practice . Does it start bak up right away ? Check engine light on ? How to Test Crankshaft and Camshaft Position Sensors

2001 Honda CRV makes a hissing sound (HISS HISS HISS HISS ) when makins a sharp left turn while going down a hill at about 30 MPH. The sound continues for about a mile after comming out of the turn a

sounds to me like something is rubbing on the tire. best bet would be to put the vehicle on stands and have a buddy turn the wheel back and forth while you watch from underneath. hope this helps

Scrapping sounds whenever brakes beein applied

DONT drive it any more, except straight to the nearest brake shop.

Brakes can wear out in a year depending on the hardness of the pads fitted. Many are soft to prevent any squealing.

If your model has wear indicators fitted to the brakes, these will squeal or scrape when the brakes are worn.

If not, I think your brakes are possibly worn down to the metal. This has to be attended to ASAP.

The wobbling over 65mph indicates a front wheel balance is needed, and maybe an alignment. This would be fairly routine after a year of driving.

The ABS light may be a separate fault, or related to brake wear. Either way, don't ignore this. Brakes are not to be messed with.

The noises when turning left and right, in a FWD car, indicate your CV joints may be failing. The classic test is to get in a parking lot, and do slow circles at full lock, left then right, listening out the window. Clicking or grinding noises will indicate you probably need replacement front axles, about $150 parts plus labour.

Shop around.

2005 Toyota Camry is making a loud scraping sound after driving 15 mins...What could be causing the noise? I took it in to Toyota and Firestone and they couldn't find anything...

Take the car out on a quiet parking lot(no traffic) get it up to speed and when the noise is occuring turn the car to the right and to the left...did the noise go away???
I think on one of those turns it did...if it went away on the left turn the left front wheel bearing/hub assembly is bad and needs replacement, if it went away on the right turn the right side hub/bearing needs replacement. Hope that helps!!

Battery light coming on intermitantly, Van up and died won't star

The alternator has failed if the the alt is good typically the vehicle will stay running even if the battery is bad. Have the electrical system tested because a bad battery can cause the alternator to fail.

Purchased certified 2007 crv with 40,000 miles. took to alarm shop to have an after market alarm installed. came out with the vsa warning light on. what might have caused this? took to honda dealer, they...

Thats why you dont take your vehicle to some kid at the stereo shop without a wirnig diagram to poke around and screw up your car. You should have OK'd the Honda dealer to fix it, and have the manager from the steroe shop pay for any repairs. Sounds like a bunch of parts changers are just replacing parts without testing. Once you buy parts like that, there's no refunds.

Scraping Sound When Turning Left and Right & Steering Locks Up

Careful - a long time ago there was a recall on Toyota's T100 steering wheel shaft. It could fracture - and might cause the problem you seem to be having.
