Question about 2009 Honda CR-V

1 Answer

I have a cold start problem with our 99 Honda EX CRV. 185K Miles. Car eventually starts after several tries. Once it does start cold... there are no further starting problems the rest of the day... until the car sits overnight and becomes cold again. Checked the alternator, battery (Die Hard-only 3 years old)... both good-clean connections! Changed out temp. coolant sensor and Ignition Switch. Changed out spark plugs, rotor, distributor cap @15 months ago. All fine! I do hear an occasional brief grinding sound near the starter area, when engine is turning over on cold start! Car sometimes starts when you let go of the key...as the key returns to the on position! All this happens only on 'cold start' it is slowly getting worse! Could it be the starter?

Inside the fuel pump moduel in the gas tank is a little known part called a

FUEL PUMP CHECK VALVE ! The pupose of this check valve is to keep the fuel lines an fuel rail full of gas . Having it checked would involve hook up a fuel pressure gauge . An no it's not you starter .

You need to replace your coil pack. It sounds to be over heating which results in no spark being sent and the enige dies. Very common fault and easily fixed.

2005 honda civic ex automatic stalled at 40 mph


Check the main fuses under the hood. There are several large ones there. A loose connection on one of them could have caused the sudden, complete electrical failure you described. If it is a loose connection, it would certainly explain why it "came back to life" by itself.

Also, might you possibly have any sort of aftermarket security system that has an immobilizer feature on it? While I wouldn't expect this to disable the entire car including the radio, if it were incorrectly installed I suppose it could.

I hope this help. Good luck!

My car wont start


mine had the same problem but it would start in the cold but would stall if i tried to move the car.
once in a while i would get the check engine lite on would have a code that said burning too rich .
even when the light was not on it would go through alot more fuel than normal.
i tried changing all kinds of stuff o2 sensors, coolant temp sensor, throtle position sensor, air intake sensor, timing belt, and water pump just because its so expensive to change the timing belt and waterpump is run off of it.
compleate tune up roter cap to the plugs. and nothing worked.

the real problem that nobody but 1 mechanic knew just from the issues i told him.
lifter rockers too tight. and needed to be loosened and re torqued
it cost me just the price of 1 hour labor. about $90.00
he told me honda engins are the best but the lifters tighten up with time and must be re adjusted every 100k miles
mine had 120k when it started giving me cold weather problems and i only met the mechanic at 135k miles my second winter with the problem.
My CRV runs like a new car now!

Hope this information helps your problem..
