I suspect its time to finally get around to replacing the timing belt and water pump - so tonight is the night. Had to threaten them legally. If it breaks or gets out of time you are looking at a lot more expense. Yes I agree adjusting valves on those J series engines is not for everybody. Lights came on again the following week. I only paid for two plugs because those cylinders had no trouble codes. Most of the labor involved for either is the same, and the water pump is not a lot extra, so why take the chance? I was notified that the Rear Main Seal and axle joint need replacing.
Unclear how much dealer at fault. Good luck and have a wonderful day. . All sorts of the pulleys, etc. My symptoms were multi-cylinder misfires. Second appointment-work not completed due to failure of shop test equipment. Most have ignored the age issue, which can matter.
Engine using 1 qt oil every 2,500 miles. Replaced oxygen sensor; problem solved. It did not correct it. It would not happen all the time, usually would happen when cold or just warmed up. I did my belt change at 120k miles, but after 12 vs.
Up until last week, I thought I had a timing chain and didn't have to worry about it all of my previous cars have had chains. Water pump should be checked at same time. Do not go 7k miles! You're spending way more than that on fuel and oil, and way less than that on other maintenance items because Hondas are pretty much bulletproof. I didn't get it done, but there are mixed opinions on the value. This is an ongoing intake valve issue which started in December 2014. RichA answered 6 years ago I have been advised by the Honda Dealer, timing belts should be replaced at 105,000 miles.

Honda regional service rep overruled, did a leakdown test and found fouled plug. GoGoHonda answered 5 years ago My 2006 Pilot has almost 114K miles and has no signs of wear, or belt deterioration. Idler pulley had significant wear marks. Danby8187 answered 3 years ago The manual for my '05 Pilot says change the belt at 105,000 miles or at 7 years. Found one had great reviews and very respectable labor rates.
Diagnosed as a throttle problem, not a transmission problem by dealer. Code reset itself before taken to shop, shop couldn't find a problem, sent home. I say have them check the valve clearance on the front bank when they do the timing belt. Fuel filler pipe removed from car. Replaced the timing belt valve noise on cold start that went away as the engine warmed up. Shop broke motor mount which also had to be replaced. Light off for a while, then came back on.
I changed the spark plugs right after the valve adjustment and noticed that one spark plug had oil caked around the threads and another spark plug coil-igniter had what looked like burned oil on the outside. Check to be sure that the cam lobes are facing to the rear of the bike, if they are pointing toward the front keep going until they face back and the punch mark aligns up with the mark on the case. Took it to mechanic and had it replaced. Car locked transmission shifter at one point and had to be overrode in downtown Toronto! Tech sprayed area around oil pan with leak detecting spray, told us to return in 500-1000 miles. The bolt was removed and reinstalled with a large washer, giving the bolt a way to grab onto the heat shield. As for chains, they slowly get longer as they wear at the link pivots.
This condition can cause the engine to be very noisy. Kaykay969 answered about a year ago I have a 2003 Honda Pilot with 194,000 miles on it. Intake lob for cylinder 5 found to be worn down. I would wonder occasionally if I might be in trouble for waiting so long but got lucky I guess. Also had fuel injection and throttle cleaning done plus alignment. Not covered plugs in cyls 5-6, so paid for these plugs to be installed near 100k mile service when plugs should be replaced anyway.
