VCM vibration increasing. Very noticeable from 35MPH - 45MPH. Significant vibration thru driver seat and arm rest; no vibration thru steering wheel. American Honda says its normal. Very unhappy with Honda. Lousy engineering.
Unusual vibration from 35-55MPH.
left front axle was replaced
right front axle was replaced
Vibration that occurs after the engine is fully warmed up. Mechanic confirmed the issue, reviewed Honda TSB database and referred me to the Honda dealership.
The drivetrain vibrates when in eco mode when the engine deactivates cylinders. Tech performed tsb, which Improved but did not fix the issue. Dealer states that all Pilots have that vibration, especially in cold weather.
Transmission shuddering at highway speeds and lurching at slower speeds. Transmission fluid leak into transmission coolant suspected. Dealer unable to fix problem during this repair visit.
I traded in the Pilot for a new car so that I didn't have to deal with the headache and hassle with the tranmission repairs.
Clicking noise heard when turning to the left. Both front axles replaced. Had to drop exhaust, torch bracket around catalytic converter and apply torch to remove right axle. Boots were not torn, no sign of leaking.
3rd clutch sensor failed code p0348 ($35). Replaced sensor at home along with transmission flush. Caused stutter between 25-30 mph. These steps corrected the problem. Recommend changing fluid more frequently than suggested.
Broken left cv axle. Repaired under certified warranty
Drained and changed oil to new Honda DW1 Auto Transmission Fluid and performed 30,000 mile tune up.
All previous warning lights returned about 2 weeks after previous repair. Dealer replaced both Power Control Module and Electronics Control Module. No problems have re-occurred now after about 5 weeks (keeping fingers crossed!).
2 bolts loose 2 bolts missing at transmission and drive shaft connection.
Propeller shaft replaced because I was having a persistent vibration at highway speeds.
Problem occur just a few months after owning the car, assuming the trans fluid never done. Flush it put new Honda Fluid in few days later shows sign on leaking, take it to trans shop replace front seal, torque converter seal, two axles seal.
Front left CV axle worn. Likely a defective part as the vehicle only has 30,000 km. Front left CV axle needed replacement. Likely a defective part as wear unlikely over so few kms?
The transmission suddenly and totally failed, with no advanced warning, as the owner was driving it on city streets. The car was towed to the dealer where the dealer replaced the transmission.
Replaced trans axle seal
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.
Replaced two transmission sensors due to Drive light flashing.
Boot was torn off; right front axel replaced.
"D" in gearshift indicator kept flashing. at high speeds. Traced to short in 4th clutch switch. Switch replaced.
The Pilot would hesitate when the RPMS were low and the speed was approx. 40mph.
Cel came on intermittently, code said transmission related. Dealer could not see an issue.
Check engine light
Pilot wasn't shifting into Overdrive. Needed Trans Fluid changed
3rd and 4th gear shift pressure solenoids
Replaced transmission and missing engine bolt
Transmission increasingly rough when cold.
when driving at speeds of roughly 35 mph with light to no acceleration there was a shudder. Took to dealer many times and was told no problems. Finally got it to replicate and wound up being the torque convertor intermittently locking up
Noise from intermediate bearing, replaced CV half shaft with rebuilt since it was high mileage and labor was already paid.
I replaced 3/4 and 4/5 shift sensors aka pressure transducers.
DEALER THINKS I MAY NEED A NEW TRANSMISSION IE 45OO DOLLARS. THE CAR MAKES BUMPING SOUND. WHEN YOU APPLY THE BRAKES HARD. SOMETHING TO DO WITH IT TRYING TO DOWNSHIFT. HE IS NOT SURE THOUGH.
VERY DISAPPOINTED IN HONDA PRODUCT
Intermittent problem with transmission when sold. Not about to fail, but afraid it might eventually.
Transmission light blinking intermittently, later cleared up on its own.
Gasket leak in VTM4 differential; needs fluid replacement
Loaned to my son in Phoenix, who didn't check transmission fluid level. When visiting, found it was bone dry. Refilled, but the damage was done, needed rebuild or replacement costing more than the car's value. Sold via Peddle.com
"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...
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.
P1740 transmission pressure switch code set in TCM.
Replaced both 3rd and 4th gear pressure switches as recommended in Honda forums
replaced a switch on the transmission.
Automatic transmission got rough, started getting difficult to get in reverse, then was too rough to drive
Total Transmission failure, 3 and 4th gears bad. honda recommends total replacement
2nd time we have repaired/replaced transmission. first time was about 83,000 miles.
Transmission was rebuilt.
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.
Shift solenoid was replaced but the Pilot is still revving a bit when trying to shift into 2nd gear.
drive D light was blinking. 4th gear pressure switch was replaced.abs, vtm, brake lights were always on. humming noise from drive train above 20 miles an hour. Some gears needed lubricating
Lockup engaging and disengaging at about 40 mph. Engine RPM fluction accompanying. CEL code 1491 (insufficient flow, EGR)
hard starting, poor idle. cleaned EGR passages.
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.
Shifter interlock locked in "Parked" position. Dealer replaced broken "break light switch" - $115.
Dealer charged $91 for 1h diagnostics labor to check for transmission/engine oil leaks, engine mount problems.
