    I have replaced EVERYTHING all solenoid valves, flushed with honda transmission oil, replaced in line filter checked all connections, everytime I clear the code it immediately comes back on.

    Changed 3/4 motor mounts around 5k miles ago. I know it’s not the best thing to do but in my situation.. I cannot gain access to the trans mount. My axles have about an inch or two of play towards the trans. I get a very bad what almost feels like a “sputter” while accelerating regardless from a...

    Hey everyone, I am in the market to buy an SUV and I was pretty sure I wanted to get a Pilot until my research brought me to transmission issues on both the 6 speed and 9 speed (including the redesigned 9 speed in 2019+). 6 speed tranny better than 9 speed for long term reliability? Or is 9...

    I've been following this forum since I bought our 2006 Honda Pilot EX-L AWD (new) and it has been extremely helpful. I’m hoping some here can give me some insight into my transmission problem. This vehicle has been reliable and has few (small) issues but at 169,000 miles we had a radiator...
  5. 2003-2008 Pilot
    This summer I was on a 900 mile road trip down to Colorado for work when my 2003 AWD pilot started experiencing transmission issues at roughly 170,000 miles. Third gear seemed to be completely dropped and it would rev high RPMs before slamming into high gear, not long after I got the blinking...
  6. 2003-2008 Pilot
    Hi everyone new to the forums but not to cars. Car history: - 2003 Honda Pilot - 160k miles. (Family owned miles) - Engine rebuilt at 100k - Tranny rebuilt at 110k (due to Flashing/Blinking D - though it seems it could have been solenoids/clutch pressure etc..., but I digress). No longer in...

    I took my car to get new keys programmed/lock cylinder because my car got stolen and the theif still has the key. There is absolutely NO damage to the vehicle to the average eye except looks like they clipped a curb there is a scratch on rim and chunk out of the tire. Inside is CLEAN as a...
  8. 2003-2008 Pilot
    Hi All. Looking at a 2003 Pilot 4 wd to purchase. 1 owner clean, Timing belt done recently. Drives well no strange rattles or noises and transmission shifts smoothly. 170,000 Km or 106,000 miles. I see a lot of discussion on bad transmissions for that model year but am thinking as an 18 year old...
  9. 2016- Third generation Pilot
    Looking for the the experience of the forum before going to dealership uninformed. I've searched and nobody else seems to be reporting the first issue on any year. The second issue sounds like it might be similar to other model years, but it seems like there isn't anything on 2019 (yet)...
  10. 2016- Third generation Pilot
    I'm in the market for a used Pilot and want 2016 or newer. Are there any obvious pitfalls I should avoid? I've got a couple that I'm looking at that are actually the Touring model but I'm a little worried about the 9 speed transmission issues? Have they been recalled/fixed or are they really...

    I bought my pilot at 156,000 from a whole sale lot I didn't get a lot of info so im not sure if the atf has been changed but since I bought it in march it has not would you recommend changing? im currently experiencing trans issues and have the P0740 code. I did clean the tcc solenoid and it...

    I have a 2017 Honda Pilot Elite. The car hasn't run well for a while. When I used an OBD II scanner to check DTCs, the scanner couldn't get the information for AT. Does anyone know how to fix it? Thx
  13. 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)...
  14. 2009-2011 Pilot
    My 2009 Pilot (180k miles) gave me the "Check Transmission" and VSA error light, along with the flashing D the other day. Fluid levels were fine so I took it to the auto parts store to check the error code(s) and the OBD reported P0767 error - "Transmission Solenoid D". Trouble is, I can't...
