I contacted the person I bought my Pilot from ( one owner ) and he told me he never changed transmission, differential, or transfer case oils. All he did was required oil changes. So I assume this 2008 having 143000 miles on it, I would probably be better off leaving it alone, since I am having no issues. Question though, anyone here have experience with changing fluids on a high mileage Pilot, that did not have the required service, and if so did you do more harm than good.
I know this is an old thread, but I have a 2012 Acura TL which I bought with 176,000 miles on it. It seemed to have very old fluid in it. It was shifting kind of funny, so I did a drain and refill. After 1 drain and refill, it was significantly better. After the second, it was smooth as oil on a blister. I recommend changing the fluid if you have less than 200k miles.
