Why is my RPM going up when my odometer is reading low?
I've noticed that my RPM goes up to 2 and above when my odometer is between 20 - 40kmph. I've changed the spark plugs & service regularly. The pick up is bad especially after I stop.
It does eat into my oil consumption. CRV model is known for having a slow acceleration however over the last 1.5 years, I've noticed that the pick up is really getting bad. The RPM will reach up to 2 and above when I accelerate and sometimes go up to 3 and my odometer has not even reached 80kpmh. Previously, my RPM maintains less than 2 even when I accelerate to 100kpmh.
I've changed the transmission oil 3 years ago and the spark plugs last year.
It does eat into my oil consumption and I'm worried this issue will need me to fork out for a much bigger repair.
I've talked to the Honda dealer about this and they advised that I changed the spark plugs. That did not solve the issue I'm afraid. I'm not sure what could be the problem and I'd like to get your advice before I see other mechanics, just so that I know that I'm not being told that I need to change a whole lot of other parts when it is only a small part.
