Shutter while driving

45

Asked by Aug 28, 2016 at 11:34 AM about the 2005 Honda CR-V LX AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When driving at a constant speed below 50 mph,
there is a slight vibration or shuttering feeling that
will go away when you let off the gas pedal. It's not
getting worse but concerned. There is no vibration
in the steering wheel, if I remember, and it is not all
the time. Any suggestions?

I could just be that your tires need balancing, and while there have them check if there is any movement in the wheel, just to make sure you don't have any bad ball bearings.

Do you hear increased noise as well?? We had a car cupped tires, that got flattened, caused by bad struts...you have to find out what caused this problem... Tires by themselves don't normally make noise or cause vibration.

Definately check the tires for balance. Also, the fact the vibration goes away when you let off the gas, I'd also check the CV axle or the transfer assembly. (The CR-V doesn't have a transfer case, but it does have a transfer assembly). Check trans has proper fluid level, the trans fluid also lubes the transfer assembly. For sure it is a rotating part making the vibration.

Great suggestions but wheels were recently balanced and alighned, there is a thud when turning up the driveway, therefore it could be that passenger side strut (so both should be replaced). I'll also check all fluid levels as it should vibe checked including the special used in the differential. If it still does that, then I should check the torque converter as I read on this forum that this could be it.
