    I experience what (on a petrol engine) I would call pinking; at certain revs, the engine gives off a rattle; if I accelerate, the rattle stops; it seems to be when I throttle back or am cruising around 40mph; the engine also misses a beat every so often. Any clues or cures please? The engine is on 90,000 miles and has full service history. Generally, it goes well and I'm getting around 43mpg on a combined cycle with more motorway miles than town.

    Has your local dealer attempted to fix this issue? do you have any indication if there are any error codes aka DTC?

    On the CR-V diesels check the fuel hose that connects to rear pipe to the hand primer is not kinked or badly routed, at the time of fuel filter change it can be kinked and has been known to restriction in the fuel flow.

    You will never get a DTC code of this sort of issue , you just need to know it can happen.:Wink:

    Does it sound anything like this? Thats the sound of the clutch in the alternator pulley mine did the same thing its all I can think of.

    Thanks Ichiban; I'll check that for sure....I would never have thought of something so simple. But I will be going to the Honda dealer soon to have the window switch recall work done so can ask them then to look at this issue.

    Could possibly point to a faulty injector maybe overfuelling causing the miss sound

    Probably solved by now, but it could be a simple resonance due to a loose heat shield or similar. Hesitance might or might not be related.

    Let us know if resolved and how.

    Spud, if you are still out there, I have just picked up on this thread and had a similar engine hesitation on my 2006 FR-V 2-2 I-CTDI (but not the rattle). I had the EGR valve cleaned and that helped but then went into my local Honda dealer to check on recalls and found I had an EGR valve replacement outstanding.
    The work was done this week (with a corresponding ECU update) and the engine runs a lot better. Has yours been done?

    I have only just come across this thread so apologies if what I am about to ask has been covered earlier/ elsewhere.
    My CR-V 2006 2.2 diesel with nearly 190,000 miles on the clock has the same or very similar problem.

    1. At there is sometimes a rattle which sounds very much like pinking in an old fashioned petrol engine. It goes if you accelerate or slow down. It does not always happen but I have noticed it is more likely to happen in France (possibly the supermarket diesel), on an incline and on a warmer day. It usually happens about 2 miles or so out from base BUT it can also happen in fifth on a country lane suddenly and unexpectedly. Even the Mrs can hear it as it is loud enough to come through the road noise.It is much more obvious when the windows are open.

    The excellent mechanic I use has tried many times to solve this but to no avail. The nearest he came to resolving it was to strip down all the pipe work to the ERG valve and clean this up along with the valve as best he could. This did seem to make a difference but after a short while the problem returned.

    2. A more recent problem has been a hesitation at relatively low speed which feels as if one has taken the foot off the accelerator for a millisecond. I have noticed this is worse on wet days or if the air is full of damp like mist. It usually happens from cold disappearing later but it can happen at any time.

    My own attempt to cure this consisted of tightening up the slack on the throttle cable (going to the fly by wire unit) and taking out the air mass meter and cleaning it up with an approved aerosol spray. I think there was some improvement but the problem has come back over the winter period. Again this is an intermittent fault.

    Whether the two things are related I can not say; I would be most grateful to hear from anyone who has any ideas.

    Finally does any one know if this engine of this age has a particulate filter. Could this be the cause of the hesitation?

    There are many possible reasons for all the faults listed on this thread. It's all very individual to each car and needs to be systematically checked. Looking at the live data for the MAF, MAP against there target and injector quantity amount is a start for any hesitation. With the suspected misfire this is most likely to be an out of spec flywheel. And a certain amount of (pinking) combustion noise is to be expected when the injection parameters change at arround 2500 revs.
