problem #2

Mar 012015

CR-V EX 2.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 160,000 miles


This problem began when I was accelerating or increasing my speed as I exited the driveway onto a very busy highway. The car began to shutter to the degree that I thought the car was going to fall apart. When I took my foot off of the accelerator, the shuttering stopped immediately! As I accelerated again, the vibration was back.

To be able to identify the problem correctly with a service repairman, I took special note of the speeds when this shuttering or vibration occurred. It was usually happening when my speed was between 40 and 50 MPH and accelerating. When this first began, it wasn't happening all of the time, just sometimes. Now, however, this is every time!

We took it to a Honda service center to have it evaluated. They couldn't reproduce the vibration. My brother-in-law is a certified mechanic, so I asked him to see if he could determine the cause. (It was happening more often and there didn't seem to be a specific speed that it happened.) He went over the entire car and found a few problems, but he too was never able to reproduce the shuttering and thought that the problems he addressed were the cause.

Since we have gotten the car back and started driving it again, it now seems to shutter at ALL speeds. The problem seems to be the most noticeable when we are accelerating. If I PUNCH it, I can usually avoid the shutters, and if I take it out of overdrive, it's less noticeable. The shutter is there, but less pronounced and not as worrisome.

We still believe it's tied to the transmission, but it has never thrown a code, so we are just fishing for answers.

CR-V LX 2.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 146,000 miles

I love my CRV, but this problem is getting to me, going from 20mph to 40mph it starts to stutter. I am between taking it to the Honda dealer for them to check it, hence this will cost me $115.00 to see if they come up with the problem.

Update from Jan 30, 2016: Hello Ronnie C.nope was not able to get a fix on this, But here is what I did in which it helped a lot , hope this will work for you also, I have drain the Trans mission oil about half way then I refilled it in about 2 month I once again drain it and refilled it did this action 3X this have worked for me, I know the transmission oil is expensive but better then having to rebuilt the transmission and the trouble of bring it down and back up again....
