What have you done to your Pilot today?

I couldn't find a thread like this, so if there is already a thread please delete or merge.

Today I changed the rear differential fluid for the first time and changed the engine oil and filter for the second time. Current mileage is 13,028 and the vehicle has been great. Both jobs were pretty easy, though I am not a fan of the oil filter location. I used a little over 2 quarts of Honda Dual Pump II for the diff and 5 quarts of Castrol Magnatec with .7 quarts of Valvoline FS that I had left over from my CRV oil change (both 0W20) with a Fram TG7317 filter.

Because the weather was rather cool for the past few days ( I am up and out about 6 AM, so ) I didn't realize/notice how "warm" inside the vehicle would get because I thought my heater was just doing its job, but then the weather warmed up a bit and I didn't have on the vehicle heater and I noticed the vent was putting in really warm air,
I popped the hood, saw that the air intake hose had "slipped" off the engine block, I grabbed tools and attempted to reconnect, that's when I pulled to stretch the hose and saw a big hole/slit in it, I immediately ordered the replacement and got it resolved.

I'm really shocked. @plplplpl always mentions this and here it is. That will really cause problems. Does this happen changing the air filter?

Nice flaps!
I see Honda is still putting those Bridgestone Dueler H/P Sport AS on their new Pilots.
Please be careful with these. I'd inflate them to 35psi cold for a little more safety. These tires do not corner well. Especially when loaded. (Personal experience with these on the highway)

Could be catch of the day :p
I'd probably be obsessing, checking it all the time. Just what I need. 🤦‍♂️

Why do you think I haven't put one on my only DI vehicle, the Traverse? I check the oil and in the span of the oil life monitor telling me I'm at zero I've typically barely budged off of the max line. If no oil is being lost, no oil is being sucked through the PCV system so no need to catch it.
I'm still leaning towards doing it since the valves were so dirty. #1 cylinder was problematic for some reason. This cylinder was the one that popped an injector code that prompted me to do all the injectors.

As if we don't know that already.
Still haven't installed one.
So much to do, so little time.
Installed a switch to disable the power liftgate.

What are the advantages of doing this?
Simple little project today. I added hood struts from Redline Tuning. The part number is 21-18017-02. Super simple install with no modifications needed. I think it took about 15 minutes from start to finish.

Sorry for the crappy photo, but post pics or it didn’t happen. Right?

Now there's aftermarket product I'd consider buying.
