2015 Honda Pilot Ex-l 4wd modern steel metallic
So I was cleaning maf today when I stumbled across this. It is a stick in the tube that comes off the big tube near the air filter. What the heck is going on?
The tube with the stick in it, where does it lead to? A photo of where it goes to would solve the mystery.
This one threw me because this tube it's not present on other 2012 V6 Honda's. It appears unique to the Pilot.It’s gotta be in #7 on the diagram. I agree with plplplpl’s prognosis that this is the tranny breather tube. My 2005 Pilot has a similar looking tube.
If someone had over filled the ATF at some point it might have been venting out this tube.
