    CRV problems

    I have a 2000 CR-V with 72000km. When I crank my wheel full left to make a sharp turn I hear a squeaking noise that seems to be coming from my rear end. If I do it slowly enough...no sound. But if I do it a bit faster.....squeak. Could it be that the difference in wheel speeds is just at the threshold that causes the 4w drive to kick in? I also seem to remember this past winter that that same sound was happening when the 4w drive engaged when it was really cold. Does anyone have any ideas?

    My second problem is the power locks. Sometimes after I lock my car it continues to lock multiple times. When it first happened I thought the car was locking-unlocking-locking-unlocking....etc., but when I would go to check the locks never popped back up. It was just continuing to lock....as if I was pressing the lock button on the fob multiple times.

    Does anyone have any experience with these problems? I want to get an idea what I'm in for when I take it to the dealer. Are these problems going to be expensive to fix?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    The first of your problems is the rear end. There are clutches in there and when the fluid get older and breaks down the clutches chatter and make the noise you are speaking of in here.

    You should get the fluid changed ASAP. You may luck out and everything will be okay after the change. You might also end up having to change the clutch pack to cure the problem.

    The problem was addressed to Honda dealers in Honda Bulletin #01-079

    SYMPTOM
    A screech or whine from the rear differential when making a tight turn at low speed (for example, in a parking lot when 4WD engages).

    PROBABLE CAUSE
    The differential fluid is contaminated or broken down, providing insufficient lubrication.

    CORRECTIVE ACTION
    Replace the dual pump fluid, and test-drive the vehicle. If necessary, replace the rear differential clutch, replace the oil pump assembly (1997 model only), and add a flow collar.


    The second question you have is a door lock actuator. This is a common problem on all of the Honda models. Generally it is the driver door actuator that causes this to happen.

    I've got the same problem on my wifes 00 CRV. I haven't even looked at the diff yet, is it easy to change fluid? What tools, how much and what kind of fluid is needed?Thanks.

    It is not hard to change at all. There are 2 plugs on the side of the differential. One to fill and one to drain.

    You HAVE to get the fluid from a Honda dealer. It is called DUAL PUMP fluid. DO NOT SUBSTITUTE ANY OTHER KIND.

    Once you have it drained and refilled (should take just 1 quart) you should take the vehicle on the road and do a figure eight with it in both directions. This get the fluid into the clutch packs.

    It was easy-except filling back up. Wish I had a clean pump-mine has other diff oil in it. Worked though. Thanks for the help.

    Additional Instructions please?

    "It is not hard to change at all. There are 2 plugs on the side of the differential. One to fill and one to drain."

    Do you have more detailed instructions. I'd hate to un-plug the wrong thing.

    Sub: Problems with CRV

    Mine: 1998 CRV ... 113K

    Recent Problem:
    1.) Engine rattle in neutral or park if engine is reved.
    More pronounce when CRV is cold. Very faint when in Drive. . . .
    Drives - shifts same as new. I will take it in for sevicing soon and was wondering if this was common? (I did not find any earlier reference using search)

    Old issue:
    2.) Further on the above low speed turning - parking sound. I've had what could be described as a drivetrain rumble when at full limit of turning at very slow speeds (parking or U-turns). Honda suggested early on, that this was normal for the CRV. Don't know if anyone else has reported this.
