I've had this with my Acura TL too. Now I have it with my 2006 Pilot. Right about 1500 RPM and 40mph it will bounce up and down if I stay at that speed. Thoughts?
Yes, this was my next thought, trying to rule out a 2wd VCM problem. Obviously not a problem.It could be a little bit of shift flare. How is the transmission otherwise?
I think a video would be best. It could be normal. It's hard to detect what it is without seeing (and honestly feeling it).Yes, this was my next thought, trying to rule out a 2wd VCM problem. Obviously not a problem.
I'd also ask when was the ATF drained and filled last. Possibly a conversion to Full Synthetic Valvoline MaxLife ATF.
Does this occur with the cruise control on?I just bought it a couple weeks ago. Seems to be taken care of. I just drained and filled the ATF twice now. The fluid in it was pink when I drained it. I did put the Valvoline in there. I just think it's weird that this is the 2nd Honda/Acura I've had that has done this. Both 2006 models. The Acura has 200K this has 120K. I'll take a video of it. Tranny seems to be good otherwise.
Speed sensor tells the computer how fast your traveling. I don't believe it be a cause for a problem like this.Never use cruise but yeah I'm usually at a steady speed no acceleration. I was looking at RockAuto for parts it could be. Speed sensor?
Classic Third fourth gear switch replacement symptoms. I could replicate the fluttering rev needle anytime I wanted to. replace those two switches on the auto box and you'll be all set
I've seen this with my 2007 Pilot (246Kmiles) going downslope with little demand on the engine - I worried a bit, and just put my foot on the gas a bit and it goes away. I don't think this is a real issue to be worried about as I've been seeing it for 3 years now with no change.
