Terrific service. Honest quotes. Local business.


Great service and automotive knowledge.


Drew, the owner, is very professional, helpful and reliable. Since I came to pit shot, I won't go to other garages.


Very pleased with work performed and felt we were treated fairly.


I have found that pricing has gotten a lot higher than when I first started going there.

Questions Answered by The Pit Shop Garage
It happens most days, and doesn't "gurgle"...

The sound is most likely coming from the heater core. If the cooling system ( antifreeze ) is low, or the heater core has an air pocket the gurgle sound can happen. Have a repair shop check your cooling system level.

The sound can also come from the A/C system, however this is usually only if the A/C is turned on

This problem should be looked at by a qualified driveability technician that would know where to start. However take a look at the fuel pressure regulator. The SLX had an issue with the internal diaphragm tearing. This would cause fuel to stream directly from the regulator into the intake manifold. This caused the car to stall and usually did not have a check engine light.

Remove the vacuum line from the regulator and see if there is fuel present. If there is fuel, the regulator needs to be replaced. If there is no fuel, take the vehicle to a qualified repair shop
ive even done a tuneup and it still cuts off

Is the check engine light on?

There are many sensors for modern fuel injected engines that can cause this problem. A qualified driveability technician would know where to start. There are many issues from the MAF sensor, crank shaft sensor, and even a very clogged cat converter can cause this problem.

This issue needs a qualified technician that can testdrive and look at data on a scan tool

This is a hard question to answer because there are many possibilities. The spark plugs are not the only reason a cylinder can misfire. There might be an issue with an ignition coil, fuel injector, or valve cover gasket. Sometimes the valve cover will leak oil into the spark plug hole. When there is enough oil, it can misfire. I would suggest bringing the vehicle to a shop that is more familiar with misfire diagnosis.

I would start by having the A/C system recharged. On your Honda the air blowing through the cold evaporator has a short distance to the passenger side vents, and a long distance to the drivers side vents. If the A/C is low on charge, it will not be cooling at 100%. The dashboard of the car is like an oven so, the air is hot by the time it reaches the drivers vents. We see this all the time. There might be another problem, however I would start with a system recharge

It sounds like you might have left the ignition key on while performing the brake job. When I was in high school I would listen to the car radio while performing work.

Honda pilots do not have lots of reserve power in the battery. I would try to jump start the car first. I think the battery might be dead

If the noise was there before the tire rotation, there is the possibility a wheel bearing is going bad. If the noise started after the tire rotation it is most likely from the tires. Sometimes rear tires can get a little choppy on the inside edge. When rotated to the front of the vehicle the noise from the tires can be more noticeable.

This is something a certified shop should look at. Faulty wheel bearings can be dangerous and possibly cause more damage. It is better to be safe and have the problem looked at.
