1999 Honda Passport Problems
RepairPal has identified the most common problems with the 1999 Honda Passport based on complaints from actual vehicle owners. We'll tell you what the problem is and what it'll take to fix it.
On automatic transmissions the accumulator cover can leak due to failed o-rings. Replacing the o-rings and cover will address this issue.
A broken hatch button can cause the rear hatch not to open when you push the release button. Replacing the button should repair this issue.
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.
Certain models may have a vibration issue at highway speeds that could be due to uneven tire pressures, tire rim out of specs, wheels out of balance, AC compressor bracket bolts not torqued correctly, misalignment of the steering shaft coupler, improper ride height, or wheel alignment out of adjustment. A qualified technician is needed to sort out these problems and correct them.
On some models, the right motor mount cover can hit the chassis and cause a vibration at idle. Replacing the motor mount will repair this issue.
ON 4WD vehicles faulty vacuum solenoid valves can cause the four wheel drive light to stay on all the time. Replacing the valves and possibly the wire harness is needed for this repair.
On some models the rear wire harness for the ABS system can fatigue and break causing the ABS light to come on. Replacing the harness with a new updated harness from Honda repairs this problem.
