  1. Re-manufactured Engine at 62,920 miles ?? Just learned my used Pilot had this done...

    2003-2008 Pilot
    they sold you the pilot or another owner? Not that I have any good legal advice either way.

    Car Fax is just a reflection of maintenance reported digitally, if a small shop did the work, carfax may not have maintenance history.
  3. Suspension of 2006-07 AWD Pilot 165000

    2003-2008 Pilot
    I am surprised your lower control arms didn't need replacement, if they are original, they are next to go (I am at 225K on 04 pilot - original transmission too).
  4. Front end knocking - Struts

    2003-2008 Pilot
    agree with previous posts the following wear out, replacing together will avoid chasing sources of noises: struts sway bar bushings and links steering tie rods lower control arms engine mount - front and right
  5. Help identify this leak!

    2003-2008 Pilot
    my experience, to get the right CV axle out, you will need a chain and slide hammer to pop it out of the transmission. I also replaced the seal while doing the change out.
  6. KYB Quick Struts and Rear Shocks

    2003-2008 Pilot
    several years on set on 2003, no issues.
  7. Catalytic Converter Failure

    2003-2008 Pilot
    had this issue on an 03 RAV4 at 190K. Tried an internet solution - removed the upstream sensors and poured sea foam straight in. It smoked bad for 40 miles then cleared up. Fault code is gone. The internet solution recommends using seafoam spray.
  8. New Pilot Owner, shaking at 70 mph+

    2003-2008 Pilot
    if your going to keep the Pilot, I would do lower control arms, struts (assemblies), sway bar and steering links. You also may find your self chasing engine mounts as you remove vibration sources.
  9. 2006 center console access

    2003-2008 Pilot
    clean the fan screen while your in there
  10. Self repairs on 2008 Honda Pilot ex-l

    2003-2008 Pilot
    can you confirm $500 for spark plugs and cabin air filter? yikes..... I put KYB strut assemblies on my 03.
  11. Rusted subframe mount repair

    Problems
    I have my repair piece ready, but my sleeve that you cut, hasn't separated from my frame yet. Also, using 650 lb impact wrench, the subframe bolt doesn't move. Thoughts on next steps? I think the sleeve needs to come loose to drill thru the floor.
  12. Rusted Rear Suspension Frame Cradle?

    2003-2008 Pilot
    also found this from the ridgeline forum - https://www.hondapartsnow.com/genuine/honda~crossmember~floor~65740-SJC-A00ZZ.html
  13. Rusted Rear Suspension Frame Cradle?

    2003-2008 Pilot
    agree, I checked with several shops without success. I am using a 6 " long piece of 4.5 x 4.5 square, 1/4" steel. I cut off one side to make a U shaped repair piece.
  14. Timing belt cam gears??

    2003-2008 Pilot
    the tricky cam to align is the rear cam gear. After installing the new belt and tensioner, rotate the system and check the alignment marks (note I have the spark plugs out during this and install new ones). One tooth off will cause cold temperature start problems (my experience).
  15. 2006 Suspension Refresh

    2003-2008 Pilot
    I used KYB, note they provide a stiffer ride than OEM. I have heard Monroe are closer to original ride. The lower control arm includes the ball joint to the hub. I used Moog on my retrofit.
  16. Fixed Rusted Rear Subframe Mount - with Pics

    2003-2008 Pilot
    Did they bolt thru the floor, or put a thread in the patch?
  17. Trusty Rusty: Our '05 Pilot Adventure Begins

    2003-2008 Pilot
    check rear subframe mounts for rust at the body mount point. Recommend using Eastwood Anti-rust to slow down rust that has started. A spray nozzle is available to get into the frame, rocker panels, doors, fenders, etc.
  18. Rusted subframe mount repair

    Problems
    is the hole for the thru bolt in the u-bracket centered, front to back, or did you pre-install the bracket and used the subframe to locate the hole.
  19. 04 Pilot questions

    2003-2008 Pilot
    the frame is rusted out where the subframe bolts to it. Search on subframe rust, unfortunately a common problem on Pilots in the rust belt. Search on subframe rust in this forum, others have made plates and welded or bolted them in. A repair shop will probably not touch it.
  20. my 2007 pilot 2-wd has normal wear and tear but I still have original engine and transmission at 210k
