    • John's Auto Repair
      I can give you an approximate. The labor should be an hour or less. The switch you can get a price
      from stores like Autozone, etc.

    My car starts and runs fine. But when I shift it into forward or reverse, the engine dies almost immediately.
    This seems to occur when the engine is warm. After I let the engine cool a bit, like after I had it towed to the mechanic, it shifted into gear just fine.

    Air conditioning does not work. Any help or suggestions?
    I've tried putting more refrigerant in the system, but it already reads like 100psi or something outrageous in the line. When I turn on the A/C in my car, there is air coming in but its not cold. I don't think its the blower motor? Any suggestions?

      First check to make sure all fuses and relays are working properly.100 psi sounds high to me.Im assuming you hooked up to correct hose fitting cause there is a high side and low side.The compressor could be shot too

      Are you using one of those do it yourself cans with the gauge on it? Some times the quick connect
      fitting doesn't depress the shrader valve in the low side service port. That would explain the
      100psi you're reading on the gauge. In other words, you're reading the pressure in the can.

    Car jumped out of speed control mode in hwy...going at high speed up a significant grade.
    I was going quite fast, near 80mph but not for a sustained period. Saw no evidence of overheating (temp gauge) but there was an odor (hot trans. fluid?). After parking at home there was some evidence of drops and a small areas of transmission fluid on garage ...

    What does the VTM-4 light mean when it comes on?
    It started once the vehicle reaches 60 MPH. It is a 2004 Honda Pilot.

      In most cases it will come on because you have a malfunction in your (1) IAC-idle speed control valve or your (2) EGR valve......The check engine light may or may not come on too.When vehicle senses that one wheel is getting less traction such as in slippery/wet or certain other conditions,the computer reduces engine power for the purpose of gaining traction.Autozone will scan the vehicle for free so you can check for any codes.VTM stands for vehicle traction management.Computer can also transfer more torque to the wheel with better grip to also aid in gaining traction

      How does the clutch pedal feel? start by checking for leaking clutch master cylinder. I am assuming your car has a manual transmission?

    Where is the output speed sensor located?
    Check engine light and flashing "D". Received a P 0720 CEL error.
    • Jimm
      7/4/2013 Jimm
      P0720 = Output Speed Sensor Circuit Malfunction

      The vehicle speed sensor (VSS) is located on the transmission housing - on the side near the output shaft. There is one bolt and one wire harness connector - very easy to change. Be sure to lubricate the new sensor o-ring with a small amount of transmission fluid before the installation.
      Check the many on-line auto parts sources, such as;,, or for the replacement parts. For example, they (RockAuto) list the vehicle speed sensor from around $65.00 for your vehicle.

      Thanks for the assist. I got some bad guidance earlier and was looking on the wrong side of the transaxle. After looking around I was able to locate it on the driver's side of the Pilot near the top of the transaxle.

      If it is a moaning or howling type of noise i suspect that you will need to replace the dual pump fluid in the rear differential. One fluid change usually does it. Use only "Dual Pump" fluid from Honda. I hope this helps you.

      The clutch master cylinder has to be full and bled out of air. there is a bleeder screw on the slave cylinder.

      If bleeding it does not solve it then either the clutch itself is junk or the master is junk.

    There is an "S" light on my car. When this light comes on or flashes my car is stuck in second gear. How can I fix it?
    The "S" light is on my dash across from the gas. When the light isn't on my car drive beautifully. It shifts and starts fine. Have never had engine trouble with it.

    I cant tell if this is Transmission related or just Electrical
    The D light on the Dashboard cuts off and comes back on in about 2seconds. The car then stalls and doesn't move smoothly. The engine sometimes goes off completely when in slow motion, but starts when restarted. The symptom seems to be frequent when the Ac is on, ...
