Question about 1998 Honda CR-V

1 Answer

Have a noise like a flat spot on a tire. Took it to garage, they tell me i need to replace the rear end. Can not find one for my 1998 CRV. Have been very happy with it. We bought it with 65,000 miles, it now has 194,500 on it. Anyone know where i can find a rear end with fairly low miles? TY

If what your told is true and it was mine, I wouldn't buy someones elses worn out parts.
I would pull the axles,remove the rear differential,wash out the housing with mineral spirits,possible install new axle bearings because of the mileage.
Then proceed to replace whatever is your issue. Maybe just side carrier or pinion bearings. Most auto parts stores will remove and install any pressed on part.
I'am guessing you never changed the gear lube or ran it dry,because of a slow leak.

Just noticed a note pad on my desk

Got a really good idea, and used it when I had my Trans Shop years ago.
www.jasperengines.com

We have an outlet locally. The factory is in Indiana
If they don't have one,you can send yours to be rebuilt.
There is no better remaufacturer than Jasper.

    You may just have a bad axle bearing.

    Did they run it on the lift and road test. Have to do both.

    Drive shaft joints worn out?



    Maybe a different shop and you be under the vehicle as they diagnose.

    That was my specialty, as my employees did the trans repairs.

Try rotating your tires from front to back. It may help with the noise. Get a front-end alignment which can also help with the noise by correcting a "rub" sound that originates from the 2 front tires fighting each other for control.

The place which replaced your bearings is probably correct. When you get bad bearings they do not always fail evenly across the 360 degree turning of the bearing race. If you imagine a donut with a flat spot representing your bearing- as the donut spins with the flat spot cause by a disintegrating roller, the tire is bolted to the donut. The tire is going to hit the pavement differently every rotation because of the play in the bearing is at that same spot.

This play will create small cups in the tire shape at the low spot transmitted by the bearing. When you replaced the bearing , the marks in your tire tread remained. These edges need to be worn off. Or some tire stores can Shave a tire, in an attempt to make it round again.

If you have a normal size spare, you can put the spare on the left front side of your vehicle and see if the noise goes away. If the rims are different on the spare, you can have everything remounted and pay for rebalancing and put the unused spare as a front tire. Then you know the spare is at least good as a spare, but noisy.

When I get to 45 mph my car has a thumping noise. Sounds like to me something to do with the drive train...cv axle, or something else. please help me I need this car fixed.


Check your tires, you may have a bad tire and make sure it's at proper tire pressure 32psi. Also check all the linkage like the sway bar end links, the bushings could be worn and moving around. Best thing to do is spend some money and have a tire shop rebalanced the wheels $15.00 each at most places and have them inspect the front suspension for any damaged or worn parts causing the noise you have. You can try rotating the front to rear wheels to see if the noise moves from the front to the rear to eliminate the tires as the cause of the noise, just make sure there all at 32psi. Good luck and be safe.

I have a roaring noise under the hood of my 06 chevy Z71


Have you looked at the Universal joint(s)? If it is 4-wd I'd inspect the front driveshafts as well - Other than that, I'd also inspect the brakes to ensure that the shoes were being held down properly and that the Universal joint is not worn - It sounds alot like either the U-joint or a brake problem - Have you inspected the rear end? Do you use the truck to pull anything? If you'll look at the U-joint and Brakes - If not, there are carrier bearings inside the rear end that may be the culprit as well, but I'd leave them for last as inspection is a bit involved -

Grumbling Noise


yes it could cause the noise also having 80% tread is not good on the transfer case as it will constantly be putting stress on it. replace your fronts with matching tires and the noise should go away

If it sounds like a rumble from back wheels it may be the rear end going out. Mine has been replaced twice with used rear end. You should be able to confirm it by looking at the rear tires both sides of tire for an oil leak or wet spot on tire or rim.

2006 Honda Element EXP - 40K miles


I have a 2006 Honda Element as well, and mine started making "rubbing" noises when I made a slow hard turn left or right. It had 49K on it. Took it to a dealership and had it looked at. The technician knew what it was right off the bat. The rear differential needed to be serviced. Said the fluid had broken down and needed replacing. $79.00 to fix. CRV have the same problem. Just get it serviced and it should be ok.
