I have not tken a car to a mechanic in years unless it is exhaust or tires, neither of which a lot of home mechanics can do.That's why it's sometimes easier on the stress hormones to pay a trusted mechanic to install the Aisin TKH002 kit you've ordered. If a "mishap" occurs, he gets to deal with it. This reasoning also applies when outdoors it's colder than a witch's toes or hot as @Cousin Itt's driveway.
But for other jobs, like timing belt, if a mishap does happen like a bolt breaking off in the block, wouldn't they just call and say, "Well, we are gonna have to charge more, this or that happened..."?
How many miles on the Pilot? Are you the original owner?Refueled it. Took almost 10 gallons. Fuel economy is about two weeks per gallon. Still trying to reduce the concentration of 19-year-old fuel in the tank.
