Question about 2003 Honda CR-V
I have just brought a crv ivtec se, when you push the clutch down to change gear going up the engine revs go up about 2000 and 2500 when changing down the gear the revs drop to about 750 revs wiyh the clutch down. I have tested to see if it is the clutch is slipping but the enigne stalls with the handbrake on in every gear.
If it has over 100k miles you may want to look into having the lifters re adjusted. it usually costs 1 hour of labor and rarely a valve cover gasket. but honda engins valves tighten up with time and will make you loose power and make the car run sluggish and stall in cold weather if driven without warming up.
if you know how to adjust the lifters and have a feeler gauge you can fix it free.. the valve cover gasket rarely goes bad on these.
