  1. 2012-2015 Pilot
    Hi guys, I'm new to the forum. My wife's 2012 Pilot is in need of all code b 14 work (spark plugs, timing belt, and rear diff fluid; but since it's FWD, I don't think diff fluid applies ;)). I was able to follow a Youtube video and change the timing belt on my 2002 Honda Civic by myself, so...

    Hello gents and ladies of the Piloteers world! I was helping my coworker last Friday to change his timing belt (2014 honda pilot). We had a major setback and got a P0303 or it could be worst. To what extent could be the damage? Narrative below: The timing belt job was almost done. It was...
  3. 2009-2011 Pilot
    All - I have learned a crazy amount from all of yours posts/comments, which have empowered me to make many successful repairs on my 09 and 11 Pilots and 08 Ridgeline. Today, I'm writing about my 2011 Pilot Touring, with 262K miles. I was recently on a road trip when I lost acceleration and...

    I'm holding this 2007 EX. It has 53k miles and they're asking $10k. Exterior and interior is near perfect. Shifts smooth, rides smooth, no creaks or bumps. Took pics of rust spots. see below. The A/C doesn't work. The air does push out the front vents, not the back vents. I know this will...

    Long time follower, first time post of a cautionary tale. My high mileage 07 Pilot was due for another timing belt, found a deal on Amazon and ordered a full kit no name brand given. It showed up and I tore in. Parts looked good based on the first timing kit i installed and even the water...
  6. 2003-2008 Pilot
    I have acquired an 08 Pilot EX 4wd with 125k miles on it. I am unsure of the maintenance history of the vehicle. The transmission fluid wasn’t changed at 120k as scheduled, so I have a suspicion that the timing belt just might be the original belt and need to be changed. I am going to do it with...
  7. 2009-2011 Pilot
    I'm a fairly advanced hobby mechanic, I have no doubt I can access and swap the parts. BUT, I've never done one before and doing it wrong can be catastrophic so I'm approaching it very carefully. I've watched several youtube videos and read several write ups here on Piloteers. I'm left with a...
  8. 2012-2015 Pilot
    For the life of me, I cannot get everything to line up perfectly when doing finals install of the new timing belt. The only way I can get them to line up is with slack between the cams and water pump and once I pull the pin and rotate cam 1 aka back head is about 1 to 1.5 teeth out. Please...
  9. 2003-2008 Pilot
    The noise is there only when the engine is cold. Timing belt was last replaced at 130k, 5 years ago using a Dayco kit. Now at 175k so I should have at least another 2 years/60k miles left to replace. Took the back timing belt cover off to check the tension on the belt. It is nice and tight...
  10. 2012-2015 Pilot
    Hello, I bought this Pilot last year (March 2020). It was 56k KM driven and I added another 3K KM during last year (current millage is < 60K KM). According to Carfax report, first registration date is July 2015. It came with a 7 year Honda Plus coverage. Now my question is, do I need to change...
  11. 2003-2008 Pilot
    I just did the first timing belt change on my 2007 Pilot and now there is a ticking sound when the engine is running. I have not driven it yet, just idling. The timing doesnt seem out of whack (not misfiring), but I dont know how much it would be out of timing to do serious damage or if I could...
  12. 2016-2022 Pilot
    I have a 2016 touring with 98k miles. I've never had anything but an oil change (full synthetic) and nothing on maintenance minder has ever come up. I've considered trading asap, as I am 2k away from ending the extended warranty (looking at lots of other options, including Palisade, Traverse...
  13. Maintenance
    I am finally getting ready to have the timing belt replaced on my 2011 Pilot. The mileage is 125k. I know I'm over in time and mileage but couldn't get it done before now. I do not know what is and is not included. I would like the water pump, antifreeze and all hoses replaced. I would also like...
  14. 2003-2008 Pilot
    Hey everybody! I'm about to do my first timing belt job and I wanted to have your opinion/experiences. I'm going to do the job in my parking lot. I'll use: this Gates T-Belt kit: Gates TCKWP329 Engine Timing Belt Kit with Water Pump, Timing Belt Kits - Amazon Canada this Lisle socket: Lisle...
  15. 2009-2011 Pilot
    I bought a 2011 Honda Pilot ELX a year ago. One owner vehicle with 64000 miles on it. Then due to some health issues and now the virus I've only put another 3000 miles on it. The independent dealer I bought it from said they had recently changed the oil. The dash display now says the oil is at...

    Hey! I just joined the site because I recently came in ownership of my parents 2003 Honda Pilot EX-L. He has 218,000 miles on him and unfortunately has been sitting in my garage for THREE years. It hadn’t been started till recently when I decided I wanted to fix it up. I’m 16, and my parents put...
  17. Problems
    Good day. I have a 2006 Honda Pilot, very satisfied. The car has 213,000 miles and still runs perfectly, however I found some problem that I don’t know how to fix. When it got to 200,000 I changed the timing belt as I should have (including bearings and tensioner) and it started making noises...
  18. 2003-2008 Pilot
    I installed a dayco timing belt, tensioner, water pump last fall. Had terrible knocking sound on passenger side and squeal. Squeal I think is the serpentine belt but the knocking is a bad timing belt tensioner, (took front belt cover off and it was loose. ). So I found this ...
  19. Problems
    Hi everyone My 2008 Honda Pilot with 110,000 miles is making a strange noise from the engine. The mechanic couldn't diagnose the problem from the noise and said it would cost almost $800 to just tear down the engine to search for the problem. They seem to think that the problem is localized...
  20. 2003-2008 Pilot
    Please excuse the lengthy post. I want to provide as much info as possible to present and describe the problems. Wondering if anyone in the forum has experienced the following issues and/or may have resolutions / suggestions: Transmission seems to kick (hard shifting - practically all gears)...
