I have a 2002...

I have a 2002 Honda CR-V and it skips when the RPMs get over 2500 RPMs and some times it will not crank. It has a P1259 code in it.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuel supply? And are all the spark plugs working?

It acts like they are not firing all the time. When it does crank it runs good until the check engine light comes on and then it starts missing

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

Yes I am working on it myself I have changed the plugs and the air filter and checked and cleaned the mass air sensor

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka-Moose).

  • THE TIME I AM ONLINE, 7 days a week normally online around midday and then late evening until early morning.
  • PHONE CALLS are automatically offered by the website normally after my first reply. I complete calls where I feel it is a benefit.
  • UPLOADED LINKS I SEND, if I upload dropbox links, they will open on a home PC, often they fail on a work PC, on a phone use the box on the top right of your phone screen for direct download.

Sorry, no one has helped yet and you have waited so long. Not what we want. I am willing to help if help is still wanted.

I still need help. It's my daughter car and need to repair it asap

The most common causes for this code are:

  • Variable Valve Timing & Valve Lift Electronic Control (VTEC) Oil Pressure Switch
  • Variable Valve Timing & Valve Lift Electronic Control (VTEC) Solenoid
  • Engine Oil incorrect viscosity or needing to be flushed to remove sludge
  • Engine Oil and Engine Oil Filter Incorrect or dirty or clogged
  • Oil Control Valve Filter Screen

Here are the tests you need to perform. https://www.dropbox.com/s/ielbfv68qn201ap/1259.png?dl=0

You now will see a rating scale 1=bad to-5=excellent because I have posted a full or partial answer instead of an info request. When you rate I get a portion of the deposit you made, no rating means you still paid, but I earn nothing. My goal is understanding your question, and addressing it in full detail. In return, receiving a 5-star rating. Rating does not close the post or stop the conversation. Please keep in contact and reply as much as needed. Thanks, Chris

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
