    2004 Honda Pilot problems fueling.
    When fueling it cuts off like it's full. Honda dealer has replaced Fuel Vapor Tank Vapor Control Valve. Next they want to replace Evap. Canister. All hoses have been checked and repaired by another mechanic. Not sure if the Evap. Canister replacement will take care ...

      Well the answer is both the dealer & the other
      shop apparently do not know how to properly
      diagnose or test your vehicles Evap System
      to find the problem

      So they will have to continue on
      Unfortunately their lack of knowledge
      is billed hours to you while they learn the
      task at hand

      Could be the canister is full of fuel but the dealer should have
      checked for that & know if a properly working Vent Solenoid
      Valve was the only issue & if a canister issue would still cause
      the the problem your having

      Now you need to not talk to the service advisers any more
      & get into the service bay & talk to the techs to get the answers
      & get them back on the job pointed in the correct direction

    When shifting into third or second gear, engine acts like I'm not giving enough gas, but I am.
    2007 Honda fit approaching 100k. Recently, sometimes when shifting to second or third gear, I get shaky acceleration. I've been driving a stick for over twenty years. It's not a violent shaking, more like I'm driving over a very wavy roadway. Anybody have any ...

      First step - check the transmission fluid level and refill as necessary. When was the last transmission fluid and filter change? Should be every 24 to 30k miles.
      2/28/2015 Larry
      Fluid is good. Changed a couple months ago. The filter is internal from my understanding and has not been changed.
    • Jimm
      3/1/2015 Jimm
      The transmission filter being clogged or partially blocked could be the issue. Recommend to change the transmission filter as the next step - and the least expensive. Always have the filter and fluid changed at the same time as part of the same service.

      Check these various on-line vendors;,,, to list only a few. For example, they (RockAuto) list the transmission filter from around $6.00 for your vehicle.

    Is the bracket bolted to my undercarriage and transmission standard or not?
    There is a bracket bolted to the frame and transmission, and I was wondering if I could remove it without the engine and transmission falling out. I need to replace my oil pan but the exhausted manifold and this bracket are blocking the bolts to remove the pan.

    Transmission making loud bang noise
    when car shifts between 3rd and 4th or possible downshift, transmission makes loud banging noise. Not all the time. No codes. Any ideas?
    • Jimm
      2/18/2015 Jimm
      First step - check the fluid level and refill as necessary. If still makes noise after the fluid is correct level, then maybe time for service or overhaul. How many miles on the transmission? How many miles since the last fluid and filter service?

    While driving two days ago, I lost power--it sounded like I'd changed gears and suddenly the accelerator was unresponsiv
    My vehicle has almost 150,000 mi. I have never had issues with this before. The check engine light is on, but I was told by my mechanic that it's the catlytic converter. It's a Sunday--no code reader in sight! More details: I was going around 30-35 mph. I heard a ...

      Having once owned a trans repair shop

      I don't think installing a used unit (transaxle) is
      very a good choice

      Your basically removing junk & replacing it with the same
      another worn out unit

      Solenoids maybe
      Dirty Valve body-maybe

      The odds are 90% it is worn out inside
      Hardened Seals,etc,thus the delayed shifts

      We used to at least open them up if they were used
      & that was what a customer wanted to install

      I can tell you we did that once or twice only-- in many years

      Always rebuild yours or get a reman with a warranty

      Try some web sites & You Tube Video as well as the Honda Forums
      for the problem

      Try trans parts sites to see what the updates are,
      there you will see the issues you have as well

      Google the question-still has to come out to
      try something & if it is burned inside or seals
      hard, your done
