Go to a trust worthy mechanic. They should be able to clean the undercarriage, and then add a UV fluorescent dye to your oil. After a couple of weeks, you go back and they can check the underside with a black light to find the leak.

I have a 2000 honda crv, and recently I've been smelling a burning smell when I'm driving. Also my brake light keeps going on and off when driving.


Had same brake light come on a 2009 CRV and it was the sensor in the brake fluid reservoir sticking. Try disconnecting one of the two wires going to the reservoir cap to see if it goes off. If it does, this is your problem there. As for the leak, this would be a separate problem and not related to the light coming on. A transmission could develop a leak for no reason at all and could be old age only. Have it checked at another shop since the guy who told you this doesn't seem to be sure what he's talking about if he's not sure to begin with.12_24_2012_5_13_34_pm.png

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...


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.

My 2000 honda crv loses power coming up a hill, almost dies when going slowly around a corner. For a few seconds coming up a steep hill and losing power, the check engine light came on for about 3 secs.


My car is doing the same thing.... I have found that the likely cause is the catalytic converter.....I just had my factory converter replaced when the clamp rusted out...about 5 months ago...I'm heading back to the garage to see what they can do about the replacement one failing.

2005 mazda 3 2.3l that is burning oil (no leaks)


possibly the pcv but check if your cars exhaust smoke is blueish or white in color if it does and your car doesnt have an oil leak then sure its burning engine oil along with fuel, the piston rings is defective, since you replaced engine oil the additive that the owner has put with the oil to prevent blowby is gone thats why it starts burning oil.....

Oil light flashing, last oil change 7 wks ago


I belive they didn't reset the oil light timer. I belive the sequence is 1. key on (not acc with engine off)
2. step on the brake pedal 5 times within 10 seconds. 3. key off. 4. start car. 5. check if the light went out. you may have to try it a few times to get it.

2002 Altima engine/Catalytic converter problems


check engine light has nothing to do with oil level. Only the red engine light does. It sounds like you are burning a lot of oil and it is poisoning your catalytic converter. Your converter is killing itself trying to treat all the unburned oil that is coming to it. It will get so hot that it swells inside and clogs it up. Why you are burning oil is the question. Only 3 possibilities. Past the piston rings, past the valve stem seals or a plugged pvc valve and its hoses. Clean the PVC hose and change the PCV first. Changing the cats now will just kill them again until you fix the oil burning.
Autozone will do free scan test for fault codes by the way.
PCV won't show up there though.
You can buy cheap engine on ebay or at car-part.com. page with asterisk is lowest price.

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

Engine light is on.


Your vehicle’s computer system has self-testing capability. When the computer senses that there is a problem with some of the components it stores the correspondent trouble code(s) in its memory and lights up the Check Engine or Service Engine Soon lights to tell you that there is a problem and you should have the car diagnosed and repaired. Not fluid related, but could be a small problem that's easy to fix now. Even a loose gas cap can turn the light on. Have a code scan, that's the starting point.
