Question about 1998 Honda CR-V

3 Answers

98Crv- shuts off when I'm driving 70mph...

The CRV periodically shuts of at different speed from 5mph to 70mph literally on the freeway...

Thanks to God I'm a skilled driver and safely pull over on the emergency road.

It's a scary thought knowing my CRV will shut off anytime.. the weird part is the car re-starts up with no problem.

What I do to prevent an accident while driving is shift the gear in neutral and re-start the ignition car again while I'm coasting with no power.

what's your opinion GURU?

There was a recall for certain late 1990's CRVs due to a bad ignition switch. The vehicle will stall and may take several trys to get it going again. Tahe it to the dealersip and if your CR-V was recalled, they will fix it for free.

55 is the speed limit, not 70. however, your timing belt / chain is worn or stretched , your killing your engine, it will get worst, until its replaced.

How many kilometer per liter for fuel consumptin

Hi, the CRV typically gets 9.5 litres per 100 Km, the gas tank on a CRV is 58L. You should be able to go about 610km on a single tank, but that is a FULL tank to EMPTY. I'd suggest filling up every 500-550km to be safe.

02 honda crv after warming up it shuts down at a stop

Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls and low idle, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle valve, they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.
