2008 Honda Pilot 4dr SUV
244-horsepower 3.5L V6 5-speed automatic AWD
Front left CV axle needed replacement. Likely a defective part as wear unlikely over so few kms?
Check for oil leak-requires replacement of seals between transfer case and transmission Replaced the seals but then noticed the transmission input shaft seal was also bad so it had to be ordered causing the car to be kept overnight.
Automatic transmission got rough, started getting difficult to get in reverse, then was too rough to drive
SES light was set. DTC code read was P0730 indicating a problem in the shift control system. Light was set when car was started in morning. Transmission fluid was on the low end of normal. Added fluid to bring to full mark. No recurrence.
"Blinking D" light. Common occurrence in these Pilots, according to discussion boards. Diagnostic code P0845. "Third gear pressure switch." I asked the service rep to please as Honda to take care of it as this is a common problem and I don't think...
Transmission would suddenly downshift 2 gears while constant driving at a constant speed. Very hard, abrupt downshift that if uncorrected would have eventually destroyed the transmission and drivetrain. Transmission replaced, but still has probs.
The replacement transmission was replaced again. This time it works fine 2000 miles later.
Ordered new transmission due to failure of original equipment transmission, at about 197000. Note that this transmission had been the subject of a recall by Honda in 2004.
