Question about 2003 Honda Pilot

2 Answers

Sometimes when i start off in my 2003 honda pilot it either feels like it jumps out of gear or it bounces. When i let off the gas it usually stops. The check engine light is not on but the maintenance required light is. Do u think it is the distributor cap?? Or spark plugs??

Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle valve, they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

Try pounding on the gas tank with a rubber mallet or similar tool. (careful not to dent the tank) Try starting it. If it runs, replace the fuel pump (it's nfg). I've diagnosed numerous fuel pumps this way. Remember the pump needs to be replaced, if you drive it, you don't know when it'll fail for good. Hope this helps. Please post the results.

SOURCE: car won't start when it's hot outside

My daughter's 1991 Honda Accord did the same thing. I discovered that the main relay had to be replaced. Apparently the solder used in the original main relay was poor and would actually "soften" in the heat and cause a disconnection. When the cabin temperature dropped, the solder would cool and reconnect. Anyway, replacing the main relay worked. My daughter's car has not had this problem since.

My 2003 honda accord will not go into gear while car is running.I have had no problems with it, then all of a sudden cant move out of drive way.Stick shift


Almost certain to be a clutch problem - the clutch plates aren't separating because either: -

The operating mechanism has failed,
or the clutch pilot bearing is seized (if fitted),
or the splined shaft has rusted and preventing the driven plate moving away from the flywheel,
or the clutch is contaminated with enough oil to stick the components together (unlikely),
or the normally shiny friction faces have formed a layer of corrosion effectively welding the clutch components together - this can happen in a short space of time in damp conditions in a similar way to how some parking brakes stick.

Only you can judge which of these is the most likely. If the operating mechanism has failed the clutch operation will almost certainly feel different to usual, lighter, less resistance to the pedal or the pedal having limited or no travel due to being lower than usual.

If the pedal seems ok it is perhaps just stuck. I have lost count of the number of times I have needed to start a car in gear and drive and change gear without the clutch until it eventually frees. Sometimes there is no choice but to be extremely rough with it. Only once have I needed to remove a gearbox to fix the problem.

2003 honda pilot won't shift into drive


On my Honda Pilot I experienced the same problem having difficulty changing the gear shifter from park to drive. I drove it to my Honda dealer and the technician explained that the problem was a brake sensor was worn and needed to be replaced. This is because the brakes must be engaged before shifting from park into drive and that the sensor gets worn over time. As I remember, the sensor and labor to install was somewhere between $25 to $50 to replace. It now works like a charm.

Honda civic won't start no crank


Your battery is stone dead. Once started, the alternator keeps it running.

Feels first gear doesn't engage from stop


About the only thing you yourself can do is to check your transmission fluid level, and replace if necessary.
Sadly you will probably need to take the car into a service center to be tested properly.

HONDA 2003 TRANSMISSION PROBLEM


If you go to the following web page:   http://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/cars/problems/recalls/results.cfm?SearchType=QuickSearch&rcl_ID=04V176000&summary=true You will find a copy of the very recent order by the National Highway Safety Administration which will require Honda to fix this problem for you.  Mine just dies too.  The problem is the Torque Converter, which burned your tranny fluid and caused your transmission to fail.NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number: 04V176000
