Why does my 2005 Honda CRV die while going down a hill or at any other given time for no apparent reason. I have had this vehicle only a few months, I'm ready to sell it. Thank You

Asked by Feb 08, 2015 at 09:26 PM about the 2005 Honda CR-V LX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2005 Honda CRV will die in traffic, or going down a hill, or any other time for no apparent reason. One person said to let the engine warm up before you take off. Okay the temp gauge was sitting in the warm position, so it seems that may have not been the reason. Do you know if  there any recalls in the past or present in regard to this kind of problem?  It is a bit scarey sometimes.
Many Thanks

sounds like it could be a number of things ill give them to you in the order i would check them.the fuel pump could be getting ready to go,your filter could need to be changed and most important the injecters might need to be cleaned out.word to the wise that crap that the parts stores sale dont really cut it. you have to take them out and take them to somebody who has a injecter cilibrating machine.if you not getting any codes one those is the problem

Just a thought... change the brand of gas you are using. I've owned 4 hondas, and one (that had a rebuilt engine from the previous owner) would do the same thing if I used Flying J gas. No other brand would cause it to do that. I haven't had that problem with my other Hondas, but it's an easy and cheap thing to try.
