Question about 2003 Honda CR-V

1 Answer

A week ago my 2003 CRV suddenly had the check engine light on, then stalled at stops on the way home. I took it to a Honda dealer who ran the codes. I was told the oil was low (1300 miles after the last oil change), and agreed to have the oil changed. I was told the code was cleared and to monitor the oil level. I was told if the problem is not fixed, I might need to replace the timing chain. The service paperwork says the code was P0431 When I picked up the car from the service, the check engine light was still on. And today it almost stalled at stops again. I have an appointment to drop off my car again tomorrow. Any input you have to help solve identify the check engine light problem will be much appreciated!

THAT PARTICULAR CODE IS CAUSED BY A CATALYTIC CONVERTER DEFECT. YOUR OIL BEING LOW SOUNDS MORE LIKE IT COULD BUT MAY NOT POSSIBLY BE YOUR STALLING PROBLEM. IF THE CAT IS STARTING TO GET CLOGGED U WILL START TO GET STALLING MORE ON THE ACCELERATOR THEN OFF. YOUR BACKPRESSURE FROM THE ENGINE NEEDS TO BE CHECKED. THEY SHOULD HAVE NEVER LET U TAKE THE VEHICLE HOME WITHOUT FINDING THE SOURCE OF YOUR OIL LEAK. THE ONLY FLUID ON THIS EARTH THAT DISAPPEARS OVER TIME IS WATER. YOUR OIL IS GOING SOMEWHERE AND IT NEEDS TO BE FIXED. SORRY TO SAY BUT U HAVE MORE THAN ONE PROBLEM. THE CATALYTIC CONVERTER ISSUE NEEDS TO BE FIXED AND YOUR OIL LEAK FOUND. SOME OF THESE DEALERS ARE CROOKS. IF YOUR CAR IS STILL STALLING ALWAYS TRY TO GO BASIC FIRST SOME OF THE SIMPLEST THINGS COULD BE CAUSING YOUR STALLING.

I drive a 2003 Nissan Sentra SE-R Spec V.
My car suddenly stalled 1 day and the engine wouldn\'t turn over. Brought it to my mechanic and had the Camshaft position sensor replaced by my mechanic. The car ran fine for about 2 weeks and then the light was back on with the initial symptoms.

Took the car into the dealership and they diagnosed it again as P0335. Said that the mechanic hadn\'t installed the sensor correctly. Charged me a bunch of money to replace the thing and not too long ago the check engine light is on. The Revs bounce around everywhere. Checked the code again and it\'s P0335 yet again! Am in talks with the dealership to get to the bottom of this...

Check engine light comes on because engine computer has detected a fault. It could be anything, from a cheap sensor to an important component out of specifications, to a service reminder. Most shops (not necessarily Honda dealers, ) have the diagnostic equipment to hook it up to your car and tell you what is wrong, before fixing anything. Usual rates for this diagnostic is below $100, including quote for repair.

The "D"[drive] light flashing whilst driving 2003 CRV


your transmission may be low in fluid
s should have been checked when you went in for a service
have it checked by a different mechanic
a lot of mechanics forget or just dont check the level in it
you may be bale to check it your self
look in the servicing you car part in your owners manual
there is a dip stick in your motor bay just like checking your oil
however
most cars have to be checked with in the first 5 seconds of the car running
just check what it says in the owners manual about "maintenance" and follow what it says
let me know if this helps

2003 Intrepid - engine light, intermittent stalling and high rpm from 3 to 4


Have the test run and deal with what shows up, keep your fingers crossed that maybe it is a cheap fix, but as a 30 year veteran of new car dealer repair shops quick fixes are few and far between, I hope you have good luck and yours is an easy one.

2003 Honda crv


Yes, as long as the honda isn't doing anything weird, such as strange noises, poor performance, etc, you can drive it to the dealer. They'll check it for engine codes which will tell them what's wrong. Probably an emission component (such as a sensor) isn't working properly. countrycurt0
