    I am curious if the services for this code are standard for all Honda dealers? Also, I called my tire center to get a quote (they usually do my oil changes when they do my free tire rotations) and was told they don’t do transmission fluids in higher mileage vehicles (only at 120k), wondering why...

    My D light keep’s coming on. Then goes off after I turn off the car. I’ve put new fluid in. I also have a slight leak it looks like it’s coming from the front of the trans. Shifts are god the light seems to come on while downshifting. Any ideas where the leak could be coming from and what the...

    Good afternoon, I know this topic has been discussed heavily for the past two decades. I've been scouring posts for the past couple of hours looking to see if anyone had a similar situation to mine. It started with the infamous blinking "D" light. The Pilot has also been experiencing some...

    Let's play a game of "identify the tranny problem" while it's summer for two months in Minnesota and maybe I could work on the Pilot for a week in warm weather :cool: 2004 Honda Pilot RES. 268,xxx miles on it. Has aftermarket tranny cooler. Has tranny oil jet kit installed. ATF drain and fill...

    'lo all, So, I purchased and installed an s-vcm per the recommendation of some helpful people on the last post I made and that seemed to fix the problem almost immediately. I also replaced my pcv valve while I was already in there trying to get Pontius running like new again. He seemed good...

    When doing a trans fluid change, what would people recommend? 1. drain the fluid and refill 2. flush 3. also change the trans fluid filter? Valvoline told me they can only do #1, and the trans oil filter is not easily accessible. Just curious about what other people did. My vehicle has reached...

    Hey everyone, new to the group and to the Pilot family. I've wanted a Gen 2 Pilot for a long time and the day is finally here! Bought on 3/11/22, been driving it for 6 days. LOVE it so far but trying to get to the bottom of what's going on with my shifting, hoping it's not going to be expensive...

    I have an 03 Pilot. Stopped for gas. Wouldn't start after. The dash is showing "P" and "D". The shifter moves freely throught all positions. And will also say it shifted smooth up to this point. So no transmission issues before pumping the gas. I've replaced the transmission range sensor/neutral...

    Hi, We just bought a 2022 EX-L AWD (9-spd ZF trans), and I've noticed that when I first back out of the drive each morning and shift from R to D it takes 2-3 seconds and a mild clunk for D to actually engage and start moving the car forward. I've maintained cars for ~45 years now - including...

    My 2004 pilot has a transmission leak and the source isn’t anywhere I can see but from what I can tell these 2 areas I marked in the photo are the first areas where fluid becomes noticeable. I know this isn’t much info but it’s all I have to work with. Anyone had something similar or know what...

    I just did a transmission swap on my ‘04 pilot and thought I’d share a quick tutorial. tools needed: 10mm, 12mm, 14mm, 17mm, 36mm sockets and a hammer step one: remove battery, battery box, air box, front wheels, starter, brakes, sensors, CVs, exhaust, drive shaft, steering column, subframe...

    We have a 2021 Pilot with 7000 miles that has developed a vibration or shudder when coasting. It feels a bit like hitting a rumble strip. You can hear it and feel the vibration in the floor boards. The engine has to be up to normal temp, mostly happens on hilly back roads, moving 40-50 mph. When...

    This is the second time this has happened, yet it goes away before dropping it at the dealership and they say they can't do anything if they can't get it to replicate. They said nothing is showing in the diagnostics. So my first question is, shouldn't there be a code history if it threw...

    Mansfield, OH: 2004 EX with 277,xxx miles. Transmission quit 2 days ago and just selling to buy a newer one! Clean exterior, typical clear coat and rust issues but overall decent paint for the miles. Engine well-taken care of Interior almost spotless except rear center console vent broken and...

    Hi, Piloteers! If you use Scanguage II for monitoring your transmission temps, did you notice of your cold tranny temperature matches the ambient temperature outside? I noticed that even after 2 days of not driving, the transmission temp is always 10 degrees higher than outside. That makes me...

    Hey everyone, this is my first post here, because I don't own a Pilot but my cousin does and I'm helping him fix it. He went to the side of the road a few weeks ago when the engine quit in his 2007, so we trailered it back to my shop where I found that the timing belt had blown. Since it is an...

    Hi all! First time poster, longtime reader. I'm trying to do a transmission fluid drain and refill on my '04 Pilot, but I'm unable to remove the fill plug from the reservoir. I've soaked the bolt with pb blaster and have continually resprayed throughout the day and will wait till tomorrow...

    Hi All, TL;DR: Changed transmission filter and errors went away. I wanted to share some experience with my Pilot (2017 EX with AWD, sensing and 6AT) in Canada. Owned from new. At 98k km I began experiencing a random "transmission system problem" message with all the transmission positions...

    Hello everyone, First time poster here but I cannot find my issue duplicated on another thread so I figured I would finally throw my hat in the ring. My wife was driving her 07 recently and came home complaining about a problem but couldn't describe it well enough for me to diagnose, it threw...
