  1. Trailer hitch install - anyone do it themselves?

    Towing
    I am not sure where in the discussions I should put my questions. I cannot find the Towing Sub-forum that Wanderer mentions. I have a 2008 Pilot EXL and recently bought a nearly new factory installed tow bar from another 2008 Pilot at a "parts exchanger" (junk yard). I used the installation...

    Towing
    Hey, do I remove the tow hook permanently?? I thought I was supposed to run the bolts through the tow bar and the tow hook.

    Towing
    I am a fairly strong woman but holding that heavy tow bar in the air with one hand and trying to start a bolt threading is a killer. I even used jack stands that proved unstable. I guess I will try a full size jack!! There is no one around who can or will help.
  4. Post if you have 200k miles on your 2003-2008 Pilot

    2003-2008 Pilot
    Basic tuning on 2008 Pilot EXL 209,200 miles. Managed to change the spark plugs. I had to impale myself on the hood latch in order to reach the back 3 plugs. Oil/Filter: Despite covering the ground under the oil receptacle/tub, the old oil spurted way beyond the tub and all over me. Removing the...

    2003-2008 Pilot
    Hey folks, I am still learning where to post Thank Yous and other kindnesses.... Just got back to Texas from Arizona and took the Pilot to the mechanic the Auto Zone ladies had recommended. He ran the code (s) and fiddled around with other tests. We discussed the O2 sensors and how they can...

    I answered those questions in an email that the site sent to an "Administrator" or wherever it went... Sorry, I don't have the information in front of me at this minute. I will look around to see if I hand write it somewhere. Avie
  9. Wisps of smoke from exhaust?

    2003-2008 Pilot
    Oh, about the Texas/California regs. about Emissions. My Pilot is going to be Titled in Arizona. Both AZ and TX require 90 days as the oldest Emissions Test. The last one was done in Texas 6 months ago. Either party can have it done. I don't believe that there is a requirement about who pays or...

    Thanks HangFire and Road2cycle! Sorry I have been away from the computer for a few days. The 2008 Pilot EX with 206,882 miles passed the Texas Emissions Test with flying colors. That included gas cap integrity. The rest tested as "ready"; Catalytic Converter, O2 Sensor, O2 Sens Htr; EGR/VVT...

    Every time I write, the messages fails to post. After composing long comments, they vanish. But, I am trying yet again. 2008 Honda Pilot with 206,476 miles. I just bought it in Dallas. It does have some pale whitish smoke wisps from the tailpipe upon starting and for a few minutes after...
