2004 Honda Pilot EX-L 264k miles (RIP)
Ran an OBD sensor thing and got this once I got it unstuck. What's the damage? Easy fix?
I'd say it runs like boiling shit. VTM-4 light kicks on almost instantly, can't hold idle, stalls. Learned about parking mid winter and letting the ground thaw so she was stuck in a hole about 8 inches deep, it was a pain to get her in gear and out of there. Definitely wouldn't put it on the road, but that's the only error I'm getting and all signs of a bad crankshaft position sensor are pointing directly at my Pilot. I'm gonna start with the CPS and hopefully that'll be it, but I know the pump and timing belt desperately need a change.Crackshaft position sensor is kind of a common thing that needs replacing on these. I don't think it's a horribly complicated job.
Is the motor running well otherwise? Sometimes people get that code when their timing belt fails.
I'll definitely watch a couple videos first. I haven't ordered one yet but I will and me and my bro in law are gonna tackle it.You might be able to order one of those sensors and install it yourself, but I would watch a YouTube video first and see if it is something you think you can handle.
