Honda Passport Problems

Failed O-rings Can Cause Accumulator Cover to Leak on Automatic Transmissions

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.
