Question Answered: I have a 2003 Honda Pilot, Never had any wreck, no accident why is the SRS light
September 11, 2011, 09:32 PM
You do not need to take it to a dealer. Any shop that has a up to date full scanner will be able to read the SRS codes. Get those codes and comeback here and we can help you.
Question Answered: My car cuts out when on quarter tank or lower of fuel. Why is that?
September 11, 2011, 09:22 PM
I know what it means to run the car on as little gas as you can. Understand something, the gas is what lubricates the fuel pump. It is a 18 year old car. if you have done the practice of running the fuel level that low on a regular basis you most likely have a bad fuel pump. Someone needs to perform a fuel pressure and volume test on the fuel system.
Question Answered: Trouble code P1349
September 11, 2011, 03:23 PM
Customer Concern: Setting a code P1349 for a Variable Valve Timing (VVT) Oil Control Valve (OCV) system malfunction. At times the engine runs rough and misfires on one bank. Has an aftermarket remanufactured engine in it. Transmission goes into failsafe when the code sets. Tests/Procedures: 1. When the problem occurs, remove the OCV and see if it is sticking. 2. Can also try unplugging the solenoid, which would keep it from opening and possibly sticking. Potential Causes: Variable Valve Timing (VVT) Oil Control Valve (OCV)
Question Answered: have any ideas on what is going on with this truck?

Take it to a transmission shop a let a tech who knows what to look for in the serial data concerning the trans. I suspect you have a trans problem developing. I sure wish RepairPal had spell check in their answer section! It is time to use that 90 day warranty.
Question Answered: Battery runs down
September 11, 2011, 03:18 PM
Just because the battery is "dead" doesn't mean it is bad. I suspect you have a charging problem not a battery problem. It would be nice to know which of the three differant Pacifica models you have or what V-6 engine you have. It sounds like you have a PARASTIC DRAW on the battery. This is above your ability to diagnose. Let a pro find the draw and you will not have to replace a battery for awhile.

Just go to a car stereo shop and tell them what you desire.
Question Answered: I recently had some body work dont on my car. By the way, it is the S model

I don't believe it has anything to do with the battery cable. FORGET the dealership. Just because they sell the car doesn't mean they know how to fix it. I know that sounds sad, but true. You need an independant repair shop to look at serial data, fuel trims, upstream O2 sensor readings. In another word a tech with a BRAIN. Once you have been given the problem then call the 800 number for Mazada corporate. He who screams the loudest gets what they want.
Question Answered: Engine ON and OFF

You need to ask the question just once.
Question Answered: Engine ON and OFF
September 11, 2011, 02:54 PM
You need to isolate if you have no spark or fuel. I suspect you have a bad fuel pump. You need to isolate what you do not have.
Question Answered: My van is blowing white/blueish smoke from the tailpipe. What could be wrong?
September 11, 2011, 02:43 PM
Other than what you think is "white/blueish" smoke from the tailpipe what is the sympton of the van? A blown headgsaket would be white smoke with a sweet smell in the exhaust.
