Initial delay in starting off
« on: March 29, 2021, 11:25:54 PM »
Hi all. My 2012 Hybrid has 62k miles on the clock. Iíve had it 3 yrs and changed the oil and filter each year despite only 5k miles 2018-19, 4K miles 2019-20 (and so far 1800 miles July 20-now). I had the CVT oil and filter/pump changed in 2019. Oils are genuine green engine oil and Honda CVT.

When starting from cold Iím noticing more now that the gearbox takes a couple of seconds before I get any go and itís hard, nigh on impossible to start off smoothly without a jolt. Once running the changes are fine and the car goes well. It just that first start after putting it into drive. Is this indicative of something in particular needing attention? Itís really irritating. Grateful for any suggestions. Iím obviously thinking of another CVT oil change as itís 2 yrs since the last change (but only 6.5-7k miles). Thanks

Normally, with oil changes, they talk about miles or years, Whichever comes first. It could just be the fact the car has been standing so long (I've done that mileage since January), but another CVT oil change would do no harm.

Having looked on the Honda fixed price servicing list it seems Honda charge around £90 for the CVT oil change, so thinking I may take it to a main dealer to find out if them changing it makes a difference. Or am I hoping too much?

You have to buy the genuine Honda fluid anyway, and it is not cheap, so £90 for not getting your hands dirty, and piece of mind, is not too steep a price to pay.

Just a thought, is the handbrake sticking, you release the brake but maybe the pads are sticking to the rear discs??

That's a possibility. Though I usually find it gives a loud "clunk" as the pads unstick. If feasible, you can always try parking the car with the handbrake off (flat garage or drive).

I find after washing the car and I accidentally put the handbrake on the pads do stick. Discs going orange from the wash.

I always just leave my auto in P in the garage.
Let's be careful out there!

Thanks guys. Jocko they are my thoughts too regarding cost of fluid and the dealer doing the work.

Iím pretty certain it is not a brake issue as it is not a Ďdragí feeling and sudden release (with the associated sound from the discs), itís more like the auto box fluid getting up to pressure before I can move off.
