2011 CRV Possible Exhaust Leak

Asked by Aug 05, 2019 at 07:23 PM about the 2011 Honda CR-V

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My CRV seems to have lost power in especially low speeds. There's a sound like a air leak coming from underneath just in front of the driver. There's no loud noise. I'm thinking that the leak is causing low performance as there is no back pressure back to the manifold. Does this sound possible? Thank you.

I discovered that it was the "Throttle housing" and "throttle plate." This controls the air mixture into the combustion area. Sort of like what a carburetor would do. This sends signals to the computer which in turn communicates with the transmission. So the low acceleration was because the transmission wasn't receiving accurate information to providie proper gear ratios during rolling acceleration. The dealerships will try something else first adding to the final bill. This is their "bread and butter" scheme for more profits. It's like confusing new car customers into buying extra services you'll forget you have and never use. Thats where their REAL profits come from.
