Question about 2008 Chevrolet Cobalt

1 Answer

Hello friends, I havea 2009 Honda CRV. I have been noticing that when I put the car in park after driving for a while and let off the brake pedal the car will roll slightly forward and I hear a click come from under the car. Is this click sound normal? Or is something off? Any thoughts would be appreciated!

That's normal -- it's the transmission locking up in park.

It sounds to me like you need a tranny flush and a filter change.

When the shift lever is placed in park, the rod pushes the spring against the small tapered bushing. If the park mechanism is lined up so that it can drop into one of the notches in the output gear section, the tapered bushing will push the mechanism down. If the mechanism is lined up on one of the high spots on the output, then the spring will push on the tapered bushing, but the lever will not lock into place until the car rolls a little and the teeth line up properly. This is why sometimes your car moves a little bit after you put it in park and release the brake pedal -- it has to roll a little for the teeth to line up to where the parking mechanism can drop into place. I hope this will have you if you need to no anything else about your car you could go to this web site (howstuffworks) and write in how automatic tranmissionswork. brian

The slack and 'click' is the transmission mechanism engaging the parking 'pawl' to lock the car's wheels. It is entirely normal to have the motion and click.

My thoughts are that the Brake fluid level is to the top, and there's no room for the fluid to expand as it warms up, instead it applies the brakes.
you may have an additional mechanical problem causing heat like sticking calipers or wheel cylinders.

The gear shift in my honda crv 2004 is locked in park? I can use it with the screw driver releasing the gear, but would like to know what to do to fix it.


Check your brake lights. A malfunctioning brake light switch can cause the computer to think you are not pushing the brake pedal and it won't let the transmission range selector go! Good luck

Smell of burning rubber rear offside wheel area


Hi there! Check out this link.
http://www.automotivehelper.com/topic175126.htm
this link will take you to a forum full of people with CRV's who are having the exact same problem. It seems to be with almost every year of the CRV as well. Unfortunately Honda has no explanation or solution for this problem. I have a 2009 CRV and have not had this smell, but I have been having a ton of other problems with it. I have been incredibly dissapointed with this car, and will never get another Honda. I hope you have better luck than I, and be careful with it cause I think there are some serious problems with these CRV's. Good Luck!

when you step on the brake pedal it energizes a solenoid located next to the shifter (under the console) that disengages a mechanical stop which prevents you from putting the car in gear w/o the brakes applied. Safety First. If that solenoid goes bad you will experience this. The brake pedal switch could come into play here as well but not certain of this. are there any other symtoms such as brake lights don't work?
