99 Honda CRV, Irratic idle and shifting hard after rpms reach around 3500.

A/T hard shifts. well if RPM is way too high ,then that is NORMAL.
it's the RPM wrong.
my joke, is sell car to Toyota, they need 1 more lawsuit.
joking aside, this car has EFI (electronic fuel injection , system)
and in all EFI cars, the ECU/PCM controls idle at all times.
this is called IAC or ISC, idle speed controls and the devices.

if the idle is out of control it can be because. (yours is)
1: air leaks ( vacuum) in the intake systems and plenum.
2: bad or dirty IAC or ISC. (clean them and test them)
3: if car has DIZZY (old) someone set the timing way off.
distributor. cars. and some early CMP cam angle sensor cars.

also, the ECU can in fact lose idle controls while in limphome mode. so is the CEL off running?
if not ,? scan the ECU for all DTCs codes and post them and get help.

CEL = check engine lamp, RTM , read the op guide.

Where is the ELD on honda crv 2008


P1289 - Cylinder Head Temp Sensor High Input
The A/F sensor is a planar dual-cell limit current sensor. The sensor element of the A/F sensor is the combination of a Nernst concentration cell (sensor cell) with an oxygen-pump cell, which transports ions. It has a heater in the element.

The sensor is capable of precise measurement a= 1, but also in the lean and rich range. Together with its control electronics, the sensor outputs a clear, continuous signal throughout a wide range (0.7 < a< air).

The exhaust gas components diffuse through the diffusion gap at the electrode of the oxygen pump and Nernst concentration cell, where they are brought to thermodynamic balance.

An electronic circuit controls the pump current through the oxygen-pump cell so that the composition of the exhaust gas in the diffusion gap remains constant at a = 1. Therefore, the A/F sensor is able to indicate air/fuel ratio by this pumping of current. In addition, a heater is integrated in the sensor to ensure the required operating temperature of 700 - 800?C (1,292 - 1,472?F).

The response (from LEAN to RICH) of the A/F (Bank 1) signal computed by ECM from A/F sensor 1 signal takes more than the specified time.

- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)

Possible causes
# Harness or connectors (The A/F sensor 1 circuit is open or shorted.)
# Air fuel ratio (A/F) sensor 1
# Air fuel ratio (A/F) sensor 1 heater
# Fuel pressure
# Fuel injector
# Intake air leaks
# Exhaust gas leaks
# Mass air flow sensor

Thank you.

I removed the distributor and can't seem to get it back in time, have spark, no blown fuses, at TDC rotor is lined up with number 1

Honda CRV/Odyssey 1995-2000 Repair Information



The radio may contain a coded theft protection circuit. Always make note of the code before disconnecting the battery.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Access the crankshaft pulley bolt through the left side inner fender liner. Use a socket, long extension and a suitable ratchet to rotate the engine. Rotate the engine counterclockwise until the white Top Dead Center (TDC) mark on the pulley aligns with the pointer on the engine cover.
  3. Label the ignition wires, but do not remove them.
  4. Remove the distributor cap and note the location of the ignition rotor. If the ignition rotor is not pointing toward the terminal of the distributor cap for cylinder No. 1, rotate the crankshaft one complete revolution counterclockwise, and align the white (TDC) mark on the pulley with the pointer on the engine cover.
  5. If the distributor is going to be reinstalled, make an alignment mark between the distributor housing and the cylinder head using a scribe or a chisel. Then, and using a scribe, felt tipped marker or touch up paint, make an alignment mark on the distributor housing for the rotor.
  6. Uncouple the electrical connectors on the side of the distributor.
  7. Remove the three distributor mounting bolts, then remove the distributor from the cylinder head.

See Figures 1, 2 and 3

Fig. Fig. 3: The distributor keyway is offset and can only be installed in one direction

To install:
If the camshaft or crankshaft has rotated during assembly, rotate the crankshaft counterclockwise until the white Top Dead Center (TDC) mark on the pulley aligns with the pointer on the engine cover. If the valve cover and upper timing cover have been removed, be sure the UP mark on the camshaft is facing up, and that the crankshaft TDC mark aligns with the pointer on the lower timing cover.

  1. Coat a new O-ring with clean engine oil and install it onto the distributor shaft.
  2. Install the distributor into the cylinder head. The offset lug on the distributor shaft will fit into the groove on the end of the camshaft in only one direction. If the distributor is being reinstalled, align the marks made during disassembly.
  3. Install the three mounting bolts, only hand-tighten them at this time.
  4. Couple the electrical connectors on the side of the distributor.
  5. If removed, reconnect the ignition wires in the correct order.
  6. Reconnect the negative battery cable.

The Powertrain Control Module(PCM) idle memory must be reset after reconnecting the battery. Start the engine and hold it at 3000 rpm until the cooling fan comes on. Then allow the engine to idle for about five minutes with all accessories OFF and with the transaxle in Park or Neutral.
  1. Check and adjust the ignition timing. Refer to the ignition timing procedure outlined in General Information and Maintenance .
  2. Enter the radio security code.

After engine shampoo, engine won't start on 2001 honda crv

You got ignition system wet, remove the distributor cap and check for water, i bet you will find it wet. you will need to dry it out even by using a hair dryer to dry it out, then try to start it. i would let it run for a while with hood open to allow moisture to flow out from under the hood to avoid other components from getting wet. let me know the out come good day.

Engine fluctuating and cutting out all the time when slowing down to stop cos the revs drop too low


If engine revolutions are going up and down even when you are driving, then you have a problem with the EGR valve.

If problem is only when engine is idle, most common fault is the IAC (idle air control) valve, which regulates air when engine is idle. If IAC is OK, check air intake and the sensors installed in the air intake (MAF and IAT). The sensors detect the amount and temperature of air coming into the intake and determine the right amount of air to be mixed with fuel and injected.

There are more problems that even if less frequently can cause rough idle. A good thing to do would DBII DTC scan can be done for free at the nearest Autozone.

Where can I find the manifold supply air inlet of Honda CRV Gen 1 2001 model? Picture or diagram will be best! :)

Basically, the Honda CR-V intake manifold is designed to supply fuel and air to the cylinders of the engine. It is also known as a system of passages and the induction system?s inlet manifold. The combination of air and fuel is vital in the internal combustion process of the engine. Through it, the engine is able to produce power essential for the vehicle?s component and parts to function well. The mixture of air and fuel should be at all times consistent since any imbalance on the chemical composition will result to high level of toxic elements with its byproduct. Furthermore, this will cause poor engine performance and poor fuel mileage.

Location of Idle control valve on 04 CRV

It's not a easy job but I'm pretty sure you had one of those problems where the idle surges if this is the case take out the air intake tube that leads to the throttle body, get a can of carburetor fluid and spray around the throttle body. You will need someone to start the car and hold the gas peddle to 2500 rpm while you do this the car will shut of when you do this, restart the car and repeat the process until half of the can is used up. Now check your antifreeze level fill if needed and reset you check engine light. Now you can take the idle air back and get your money.

2002 honda crv air filter change


Can you specify if you are referring to the engine intake air filter or the cabin air filter?
If you are referencing the cabin air filter, the attached youtube video should help.

I originally created the video for the Odyssey, but found out after looking at my dad's CRV that it is essentially the same procedure as the Odyssey, and have also noticed that the same stands true for most Honda vehicles built between 2005 and 2009.

Happy motoring!

Idle is too low, car dies, engine runs fine

An IAC (idle air control) motor is designed to adjust the engine idle RPM speed by opening and closing an air bypass passage inside the throttle body. The car computer or ECM (electronic control module) receives information from various sensors and will output signals to adjust the IAC motor in or out to adjust engine idle speed by controlling engine idle air.
An IAC motor is highly susceptible to carbon and coking build up; if an IAC goes too long without cleaning it can cause stalling and poor idle quality. Some cars are designed with a large vacuum transfer hose that connects the intake manifold to the IAC (idle air control) motor. If a broken or dilapidated these vacuum lines can cause the engine to lose vacuum which will allow the engine to run rough and die. 
Inspect all engine and accessory vacuum lines to look for missing, torn or dilapidated lines and replace as needed. To check the IAC motor remove the unit, with the wires connected turn the key to the "on" position without starting the engine, the IAC should move in or out. 
If the IAC motor does nothing it has probably failed, replace it with a new unit and recheck system. Note: while the IAC motor is removed clean (use aerosol carburetor cleaner) the passages the IAC uses to control idle air speed.

Good luck and hope this helps

02 honda crv after warming up it shuts down at a stop

Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls and low idle, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle valve, they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.
