You should always run 93 octane in all 2nd generation Honda pilots or your pilot will always run sluggishI'm having this problem with a 2013 Pilot after getting moisture/bad gas... in the gas tank. Dealer said I had to change my spark plugs and redo the cylinders, for $924! If I disconnect the battery the car runs great for a day then lights are back on and it rides rough. Swear this is a sensor and leftover moisture! I'm putting in Lucas tune up in a bottle and burning through all the gas in it. Then I'll try 93 octane and see if this helps. Wish me luck! My great extended 7yr 100,000 mile warranty isn't covering any of it!
I've run '87 in both of my Pilots and never had an issue. Just make sure it's a good quality fuel. I run Shell exclusively. The owner's manual only recommends premium fuel when towing more than 3500lbs.You should always run 93 octane in all 2nd generation Honda pilots or your pilot will always run sluggish
Did you ever find a fix for this. It just started on my 2006 pilot with 187,000 milesWe are currently having a very similar problem. 2005 pilot Battery and alternator are 6 months old. Lights in the dashboard are battery, airbag,vtm-4, brake, vsa, abs, and (!). The really strange thing is that the drivers side power window isn't working regularly. This occurred simultaneously with the lights...all other windows and electronics are working fine. Just wondering why the window wouldn't be working.
