No Heat, 2006 Pilot
Hi - I am hoping you can help...
Recently the heat stopped working in my 2006 Honda Pilot EX. The blower works but it just blows cold air. So we took it to a trusted Honda/Acura shop and they thought it could've been a number of issues. They tested the thermostat, mixing doors, they flushed the system and eventually they ended up replacing the head gaskets.
From the bill they replaced; 2 Head Gaskets, 1 Water passage gasket, 2 cam seals, (2or1) exhaust gasket, coolant, spark plugs, 1 dive pin, and wrap(? cant really read bill on that one), filter. They claim there are no blockages anywhere and that the correct hoses are, "getting hot" and that mixer is functioning
Ultimately the heat in the cabin still does not work. They are telling me that the block has a microscopic crack and that is the reason for the not heat situation.
Could it be something other than the block? Perhaps the Climate control module - could they have missed checking that??? Basically they are saying I need an new engine to correct the problem. They claim they've seen just once before some years ago on a Civic.
I am happy to provide any further information I can. The car looks to be a loss if I can't get this fixed.
