Warrantee is now over (100,000 mi. I have been told by one repair shop that I need the following:
new shocks
new struts
new brake fluid
radiator flush
new hoses
new thermostat
new spark plugs
clean valves of carbon
new freon in A/C

The estimate is close to $2000. Is there any way of finding a reasonable cost and wear guideline?

I will shop around but I would like to know what normal expectations of wear, relacement time and costs might be.

Have a 2004 Honda Pilot with 125,000 miles, grinding noise from front end at low speeds--more noticeable when turning left--seems to come from right front wheel. Wheel Bearings? Brake pads/rotors? Grinding noise, not a squeal or screech. Just replaced inner tie rod ends--do not know if any connection.

I just had my 2004 Honda Pilot EXL serviced at a Honda dealership on April 11. They did a tranny flush and replaces the 4th gear pressure with because my "D" light was blinking. All was well until this past Monday when the light came back on again. Then last night I noticed there was zero tranny fluid in my car. It all leaked out. So today I had it towed to Honda and they told me it was the pressure tap. I've never heard of a pressure tap and when I got home I did a search and came up with no results. Just wanted to see if anyone knew what this was. Thanks!
