My car had a rear end collision. What checks should I ask the Honda shop to do to verify drive train is in good working order?

today a wrench appeared and there is B 16 code what does that mean

The green light on the switch does come on but when trying to sset the cruise control from the stearing wheel nothing happens.

When I make a sharp turn (left or right)the power steering unit whines. It only started in the last two weeks. I haven't found any leaks, does anyone have an idea?

tailgate is close but it still shows that the tailgate is open will not respond to the remote how to clear are does the sensor on tailgate needs to be replace

I saw some oil splatter under my hood today. I first saw a small drip under car but saw splattered oil under hood when I checked oil (which was not low). I wonder if the oil filter went bad (had this problem in Feb after a Jan oil change and I wonder if that place was just a bad place). However, I also saw on internet where someone noted possible motor mount issue, and I remember Honda dealer had tried to get me to change that last year (but even they noted not needed right then).

Steering Wheel feels choppy when turning...
Not all the time, it's inconsistent.
Maybe not exactly choppy but feels more like something's slipping and I need to hold on to the wheel tight

As we accelerate and the car shifts into higher gears,there is a shudder from the engine area. We can accelerate through this every time making it go away. Is this a tranny issue or is this possibly our gas pedal failing us due to it being electronic vs. cabled?

Need to get papers back that went under the front of the console, off the cover

how do you replace the sideview mirror on a honda pilot 2009

replaced battery, technician says its not the battery, its the starter crancking over slow

I just had the oil serviced on my 2005 Pilot and they advised I replace two motor mounts, which I did. I get the car back and now it is leaking oil badly. I took it back and they are now telling me it's likely the rear main seal. What could have caused this? Anything from the work they just did with the motor mount replacements, adding too much oil, what? I did not have any leaks prior to this work and find it too coincidental that this would happen immediately after.


car started fine in the morning in the afternoon it wont start. got a jump started right up. the following day started up fine again. the batery on the key remote is low, does this have anything to do with it?

then front heater fan is so loud you can't talk to people in the car when it is on high. The sound gets lower if you turn the fan down, but does not go away. At first I thought something maybe fell down the vent, but it seems to be happening to the fan on my second 2005 Honda pilot also, what gives? How do I fix this annoying noise?

When the vehicle accells to 68-75 mph a vibration comes from the front drivers side. The sound keeps pulsating in three to five second bursts.......

When blinkers are turned on interiour lights blink

how much time will it take to remove and reinstall a v-6 motor on a 4 wheel drive?

The key to my Honda pilot won't go into ignition, once it's in it turns easily. Auto lock place gave me an estimate of $325. The keys goes in fine into the car door so the regular locksmith won't look at it saying it is the ignition problem. What do you think?

our car remote keys are not working to lock/unlock the honda pilot.If i dont want to goto the dealership since they charge alot, where can i go

We bought a 2005 Honda Pilot. A couple months later as I was driving it down the road at 20-25 mph, the ABS brakes locked up, made a vibrating noise and lunged me forward. This happened several times. I turned off the engine and drove home without incident. The dealer reset the braking computer system and we had 5 months with no incident. Yesterday, it did the same thing. We took it into the shop again. The serviceman said they think it could be the ABS module and will replace it for 1500.00, but without any guarantee that will fix the problem. Help,what do we do?? I won't feel safe knowing that the problem was not "for sure" diagnosed.

transmission slips intermittently in 2nd and 3rd gear - the rpms go up like in neutral -

New tires many attempts to balance tires and still have a vibration in car at speend over 60 MPH. I have been told there may be a recall on the wheels.

At 80,000 miles, our Honda dealer advised that we replace the front motor mount due a crack. They claim this is very common on Honda models that share the engine cradle to need this work at around 80k. Curious, is this true? Are the other mounts likely to need replacement in the future? For reference, the work cost $500. Thanks!

battery was dead so jumped start it and the radio won't turn on

The connection on the electronic front driver seat kept coming apart. After reconnecting it many times a couple of the prongs were broken off. Now my seat won't go backward or forward, up or down. It is stuck in the farthest back position because of a tall son that drove it. I am only 5'3" and have to use pillows so I can reach the peddles. What can I do to at least get the seat moved forward for me to drive...even if I just keep it in the forward position permenantly.
