Hi there, I have. 2006 Honda Pilot with 230,000 5th owner of the vehicle, got the vehicle at 190,000 last October and 3k oil changes.
The Honda now jerks now when driving it first, and then gets better but a Big Bang in the front end when trying to get up to 70 mph for the highway, I want to keep the vehicle going after paid 3k and no rust!! So any thoughts of keeping it going longer or move on to another Honda Pilot

Don't assume that the transmission is the problem. You may have a couple of bad motor mounts and the engine is moving under load.

What STMech said. My first thought was also motor mounts. You can easily check if yours have failed (look up videos on YouTube). Typically the front and passenger side mounts are the first to go on the Pilot.

Thanks for adding me all!! Actually the transmission fluid has been changed at 200,000 miles, it’s front wheel drive. I don’t want to change the transmission fluid to much then it will not have the stickiness to the clutch plates

Please, don't be afraid to change the ATF in a Honda. The solenoids and valve body assemblies need fresh clean fluid to work smoothly. The friction plates and steels in the clutch assemblies work just fine with clean fluid. Thats how a new transmission works! Dirty, gunked up fluid with steel dust and worn friction material floating around is not going to help your transmission last longer.

Okay, I’ll definitely give a fresh transmission flush again. At 240,000 miles maybe it will clean it self out.
Thanks

Has the valve clearance ever been checked or adjusted?
