  1. Did I overpay for an oil change??

    2009-2011 Pilot
    One thing shopping at costco for many years. I just don't get how they sell a cage of 6qts of Mobil 1 for close to $40 with tax, many times they do $10 off still looking close to $30 out the door. Still, most cars need 4-5qts and can be bought for $10-13 Full Synthetic when on sale combined with...
  2. LX with Camaro SS wheels, running boards and fog lights

    2012-2015 Pilot
    Really nice! The wheel also matches the running board! Makes me want to grab a set, I see one set on my local CL. A Chrome set 20", do you know what offset and lug pattern is it?
  3. Did I overpay for an oil change??

    2009-2011 Pilot
    If you have the shop do your oil, make sure you check the oil level before driving off. I bought two new Subaru and it came with first free three oil change. I bought my Subaru in for the first two oil change by end up with 4 changes total. I originally told the service desk to make sure the...
  4. Oil change question

    2009-2011 Pilot
    It doesn't really impact anything, as long as you don't run low on oil. Or go way overdue and low on oil, that really wear down the engine internals you may require to run thicker oil such as high mileage oil(usually conventional). Usually, on my Pilot, it gets really dark and burned almost...
  5. Did I overpay for an oil change??

    2009-2011 Pilot
    Ouch!!! My typical DIY oil change consists of NAPA Full Synthetic, Mobil 1 Full Synthetic, Pennzoil for less than $13 for 5qts. I stock these up that cover me a full year for both of my cars. There's usually $10-12 rebate for 5qts going on yearly. Currently, there's Mobil 1 $10 rebate on 5qts...

    You can get some high temp RTV Silicon to add on when you put it back inside the oven for the butyl to soften then push the lens back in then add extra RTV Silicon, or you can buy some Butyl from TRS and order some Switchback LED while you at it. :)
  7. Misfires & More

    2003-2008 Pilot
    I get misfire couple times in a year on my 08, but I believe it's due to some crappy gas. I cleared it out and just stick to the usual gas stations I go to.
  8. 2008 vs 2005

    2003-2008 Pilot
    I'm at 142k so far went through a transmission seal replace at 83k cost me $700, 4th battery covered under battery warranty, new alternator, recently my AC went out, seem to be a well know high-pressure hose leaking with the OEM hose. So I ordered aftermarket one and tools to get it done for...

    2003-2008 Pilot
    I have both vent style for summer time and CD/DVD mount style for winter time.
  10. No AC at all

    2003-2008 Pilot
    Mine just broke a couple days now at 142k. Relay good, Compressor still runs fine every time I turn on AC but it just blows whatever the outside temperature is. So far I found the discharge hose from the compressor to the A/C Condenser completely soaked with leaked oil. It also seems to be a...
  11. A/C Hose leaking

    2003-2008 Pilot
    On my 08 @ 142000 now, no history of it ever replace before. I notice it's not blowing cold air at all few days ago. I checked relay is good, AC compressor runs, the only thing I see is the discharge hose is completely soaked with the oil leak. Reading this I suspect this is my issue and going...
  12. Trouble installing HID kit

    2003-2008 Pilot
    Can you link to which kit you're using? If it was working to the initial install and you're saying that it sorta works now but the output is poor. - double check make sure the bulbs are secure correctly before causing any damage to your headlight. -- seems more like the kit is trash -- as for...
  13. repair cost much more than expected!

    2003-2008 Pilot
    Base on the quotes you get they are not giving you any discount on multiples repairs. I bet all this can be done within 3hrs or less. If your ride quality is fine, your tires wear are normal just leave it for now but it there's a sign of the strut oil leaking. - do keep in mine to get at least...
  14. Trouble installing HID kit

    2003-2008 Pilot
    It doesn't need relay harness but good to have it. Does both side completely dead, or flicker or anything? Try wire the ballast directly to your battery see if it comes on.
  15. QuestionS to replace HU

    2003-2008 Pilot
    If that's the case, this might be a solution. However, I didn't see any statement about handsfree calling. https://www.gtacarkits.com/product/honda-pilot-2006-2008-iphone-aux-kit/ Navigation model.
  16. QuestionS to replace HU

    2003-2008 Pilot
    I was able to use two 3/4" MDF Spacer in the stock sub to mount a Polk subwoofer in there but went with the JL with 1 spacer. Also the stock woofer amp is right under the passenger seat, so I removed it and put my new after market amp there. The other ones right behind the HUD.
  17. QuestionS to replace HU

    2003-2008 Pilot
    All correct! I did keep the stock HUD and add two Alpine amp and dynamat doors and stock subwoofer cabin, upgrade stock sub to JL one and Polk 6.5" in the doors sounds great!
  18. 2006 on 2000 mile road trip?

    2003-2008 Pilot
    Bring or buy a mobile air compressor just in case where there's no gas station stop nearby. I was on a 330miles trip 2 wks ago, my air light comes and go probably I'm right at the mark low pressure. When I pull in to the gas station. I found either broken air machine and one with no psi reading...
  19. Struts coil spring compressor tool...Help!!!

    2003-2008 Pilot
    I had to go this route because KYB didn't offer a full strut and spring assembly before. Now they do, I did get Unity full strut/coil assembly and they're junk! I couldn't stand it for 20k, rip it out and swap my stock spring over to my KYB strut.
  20. Struts coil spring compressor tool...Help!!!

    2003-2008 Pilot
    Most local shops in my area declines with just assembling the strut, they prefer to eat the whole suspension job. The only place with reasonable cost and willing to do it are Pepboys. When I attempt to do it on the 05 MDX which uses the same strut. I can't do it with 1 spring compressor kit...
