I have a Honda CRV 2012, it vibrates when it comes to a full

Customer Question

I have a Honda CRV 2012, it vibrates when it comes to a full stop on drive mode. It gets better when the heater or AC is on. The vibration is really bad and you could even feel it in the passenger's seat. What might be the problem with the car? I heard this is happening in the 2015 but I did not hear much about the 2012 vibration. Can this be fixed?

Hello, my name is***** you for the question. Can you tell me if this only occurs when the vehicle is at a full stop?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
it happens when the vehicle is at a full stop
Expert:  Fixitman replied 7 months ago.

Thank you. Most of the time this is due to a dirty throttle body. It is very common. Having the throttle body cleaned out will typically take care of it.

But I just bought it from a dealership, and it stops vibrating when the heater or the ac is on. Is it still due to the dirty throttle body?
Expert:  Fixitman replied 7 months ago.

Yes. If you just bought it they should clean it for you. When you turn on these other systems the idle kicks up automatically which assists in the idle.

It stops vibrating when the heater/ac is turned ON, and I thought if it is the dirty throttle body it vibrates MORE when heater/ac is turned on
Expert:  Fixitman replied 7 months ago.

Not on a lot of vehicles. When these are turned on the throttle body opens slightly which assists it in bypassing the debris in the throttle body.

I was very nervous and scared because it was my first car and I heard about the problem in the 2015 CRV vibrations in idle and they were not sure what is the problem. I really hope that it is the dirty throttle body that is causing the vibrations. Can there be other factors that might cause the vibrations? Thank you
Expert:  Fixitman replied 7 months ago.

Typically it is either that, a dirty intake, or worn engine mounts.

I will try and get throttle body cleaned, thanks for your help

I went to the mechanic and when he test drives the car doesnt vibrate and he said he checked everything you told me and there was nothing wrong...I understand that it is a 4 cylinder car and I might feel some vibrations but it has some strong vibrations sometimes...Can you give me some advise??
Expert:  Fixitman replied 6 months ago.

If the problem is not occurring when the vehicle is being tested then it will be hard for the mechanic to be able to tell if these parts are a problem.
