1996 Honda Passport Problems

Varnish buildup in engine may cause ticking noise

Varnish build up in the engine can cause one or more hydraulic lash adjusters to stick and cause a ticking noise in the engine. The noisy hydraulic lifter will need to be located and cleaned to stop the noise.

Worn Speed Sensor Driven Gear May Cause Speedometer to Stop Working

A worn vehicle speed sensor driven gear can cause the speedometer not to work. Replacing the worn out speed sensor should correct this concern.

Oil in Spark Plug Tubes May Cause Misfire

On the V-6 engine, oil in the spark plug tubes can cause a misfire. Resealing the tubes as part of replacement of the valve cover gasket and replacing the spark plug wires will commonly repair this issue. On newer models the misfire can result in illumination of the Check Engine Light.
