Customer Question
On november 1, I...

On november 1, I bought a 2008 honda crv which vibrates at about 70 kmh at 1500 rpm. This condition is intermittant and happens in all weather. I would like to know the cause and what my options are ie: oil change, new tranny?

Mechanic's Assistant: When was your last oil change?

Sorry for the delay. I talked to the previous owner who bought the vehicle new in '08 and never experienced any shudder. He had regular maintenance performed at the dealer but can't recall if tranny oil was replaces. I visited «carcomplaintes.com» where I noticed 3 other owners with the same problem and all they got as a corrective measure was to replace the tranny??

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your CR-V yourself? What have you tried so far?

Sweet dick

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No, that's about all...

4wd and no check engine. The vehicle purrs like a kitten, except for the shudder at about 70 kmh, 1500 rpm. It seems as if the tranny needs to downshift but doesn't. It sounds much like driving over those perpendiculer grooves on the right side of some highways for distracted drivers, although not as loud. BTW, 143,000 km.

If you shift down to a lower gear but keep at 70 is will it still shudder

Also when cruising at 70 can you make the shudder come and go as you want with slowing down or speeding up .

The shudder is intermittant and will happen only when I let the vehicle slow down from say 90 kmh to about 70 without applying brakes. She will shudder for about 3 to maybe 4 seconds. I havn't thought of manually downshifting or accelerate. I can live with it if it's just a nuisance and won't damage any particular component. We just bought the crv from a Nissan dealer and the 30 day guarantee expires on december 1. He can't really help us because the problem is intermittant.

If you can play with the shudder and keep it happening at a fixed speed
I might have a cheap repair for this problem “might “

Sorry for the delay Greg. I am awaiting feed-back from the Nissan dealership (diagnostic) from whom I bought the véhicle. I'll let you know before this weekend. Thanks!

Good afternoon Greg,
Ok, my Nissan dealer found the problem: A stiff u-joint located at the front of the driveshaft. U- joint can't be replaced as it is part of the d-shaft. Shaft on order at no cost to me and will be installed next week. Thanks for taking an interest on my problem!

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

Linda B.USA

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK

This expert is wonderful. They truly know what they are talking about, and they actually care about you. They really helped put my nerves at ease. Thank you so much!!!!
