2008 Honda CR-V Owner Comments

2008 Honda CRV. Consumer states while in reverse, there is a grinding noise coming from the right front wheel. The dealer determined that an engine mount stud was broken, a side mount was distorted and the A/C compressor pulley was touching the engine beam which resulted in sparks and/or an electrical problem. The A/C matter appeared to be associated with the engine having shifted some from the broken stud and distorted side mount.

This is the second time since purchasing the vehicle April 2008 that I've started the vehicle and the engine revved at a high idle speed like I was flooring the accelerator except my foot was on the brake. I'm concerned that this may happen when I'm coasting without my foot on any pedals and the car may accelerate on it's own. The first time this occurred, I had my foot on the brake and put the car in neutral and the high revving stopped. I took it to a Honda dealer and they said sometimes the accelerator valve sticks and they sprayed lubricant on it.
