Question about 2002 Honda CR-V

2 Answers

Three days ago, our daughter's 2002 CR-V with about 125k miles had its air conditioning fail. It blows air, but is not cooling the air. We bought the vehicle for $7000 one year ago, and have received an estimate to fix it for $2879. We were told that the compressor was not kicking in. The mechanic doing the estimate said the compressor, condensor, receiver drier, exp. valve, evaporator core and recharging must all be new. He said it is a common problem and the only way to fix it is to replace all of these parts, because there is sediment in the system and the only way to prevent it from happening again is to replace all of these items. In his experience, just changing out the air compressor did not fix the problem. In your opinion, is this true, or is there another possible solution? Does the 2002 Honda CR-V have a history of such a problem? What would recommend that I do? Thank you

Had my ac compressor fail in my 02 honda civic.got a quote to replace the compressor and drier for 750 total. tried to hold off on the work cause i did'nt want to spend the money. long story short car broke down down on my way from ga to ny and had to buy a new car. if you dont trust the mechanic go for a second quote, most reputable mechanics will do it for a nominal fee fee if they think they;re gonna get the work. just go in acting like you know what you're talking about.

First look around the compressor and hoses, to see if there is any oily stuff on them. if there is then that means that the refrigerant has leaked out,(and go to the step with the sealant.)next thing to check is, to see if you are getting power to the compressor.you need a 12 volt testing light.test if you are getting power.third thing is to check your switch, by using a piece of wire to by pass the switch,to see if the switch is bad.If that all checks out.Go find a recharging kit,with die & sealer.the red die will show you were it is leaking from.And the sealer will seal it hopeful.then the refrigerant,I did mine, it wasn't to hard, follow the instructions!If you have some one close by to help you throw this that would be best. this are some things you can try,make sure that you have the right refrigerant,it should be R-134a but check.
It sounds like you are getting scammed. get a second opinion!

  1. Many owner-reviewers on the Edmunds automotive website gave the CR-V a reliability rating of 1 to 5 out of of 10, citing the vehicle's expensive maintenance after passing 75,000 miles. On the AutoBeef website, owners who reviewed the vehicle reported a variety of AC and heater, electrical, engine, suspension and transmission problems to be the main issues of the vehicle, with other problems reported.
  2. AC and Heater Problems
  3. The most numerous issue faced by CR-V owners, air conditioning and heater problems plague even low-mileage CR-Vs. Most owners report an end blowing off the AC compressor, at an average of 76,900 miles. Repairs cost an average of $2,660, but in some cases cost as much as $3,700.
  4. Electrical Problems
  5. CR-V owners also cite electrical problems, prominently to locking and window mechanisms and interior accessories. Reported everywhere from 45,000 miles to over 100,000 miles, owners say that the doors won't unlock with the factory remote, the keys won't unlock the car, and that cigarette lighters and window buttons fail. Average repair cost per issue came out to $250.
  6. Engine Problems
  7. Owners report irregular idle patterns, catalytic converter failure, oxygen sensor failure and excessive engine oil use in CR-V engines. Occurring under or around 100,000 miles, these problems average roughly $2,500 to correct.
  8. Suspension Problems
  9. The two most common suspension problems are cracked ball joints and misaligned struts, which can cause the vehicle to pull to one side. Most problems occurred between 60,000 and 100,000 miles, and cost $300 or more on average to repair.

Hello, I have 2003 CR-V and my Timing Chain has failed after 56k miles. Why has this happened ? Charles


The timing chain on that vehicle is designed to be replaced every 75,000 miles or so. Independent driving conditions and maintenance schedule can affect the life of the chain as well as mechanical failures such as poor lubrication.

Did you have compressor checked to make sure it is not the problem? Or did you just charge due to lack of cool air? Some parts stores can check it. Garages too.. If not the prob let me know..

A/C not cycling and blowing hot and cold air.


Hello msbrig,
This is a REAL SWAG
(stab in the dark... (a bit reasoned))...

Confession... I'm no GM expert... but
General Motors & FRIDGIDAIRE
are the "GREATS" in automotive A/C.

and

This is the BEST DOCUMENTED QUESTION I have
ever seen (congratulations)...

I hope I am not doing a disservice by attempting an answer...

If your vents blow al any time... you ought disregard their behavior.. Likewise temperature controls...
and DUAL EVAPORATRS... front & rear...

The fact that your troubles are intermittent in the FRONT & REAR is a really great SYMPTOM...

You are MOST LIKELY looking at only two POSSIBLE PROBLEMS....

1. - Either your CHARGE is insufficient to keep
the compressor running.(pressure switch monitored)

OR

2. - You have a SATUATED DRYER which is allowing moisture to block your EXPANSION VALVES (internal ice) ...

External frosting is expected...
a lot of external FROST is an indication of #1. (above: low charge)...

A descent refrigeration person should be
able to tell you the HIGH and LOW pressure loads... and watch your system cycle for a few minutes... Which should be long enough to DETERMINE if you are experiencing
INTERNAL MOISTURE ISSUES...

Some folks ROUTINELY replace the ""DRYERS' (desiccant)


I do not... I use brains, gauges, experience... and your vehicles HISTORY

I am here most every day... Push comes to shove... I have the
Lincoln Navigator... dual EVAPORATOR system...
(I'll pull the book & take a look).

You can comment me back...

I bought ALL THE TOOLS years ago... NOTWITHSTANDING my amateur standing... I only let the JAGUAR DEALER jam me for an $800 Schrader Valve since 1965 (Mustang(all the rest... I did myself)).

Happy to chat... comment me back.
(again: here daily)


- Hope this inspires...
