My honda has about 78,000 miles and above 70 MPH a humming noise with a steady slight vibration i can feel on the peddles, steering wheel and windshield. It almost sounds like a wind noise but I'm sure its in the Powertrain. I need to take it in to shop but I'm looking for data to backup my conclusion.
#365 of 392 2011 Pilot Transmission problems after service
Nov 04, 2012 (5:41 pm)
My 2011 Pilot with 34,000 miles was working fine. Service wrench showed up with code of A13 and 15% oil life. Took it to dealer for oil change and was told that the service code 3 meant "recommended drain and refill transmission fluid." Told them to go ahead and complete that service. Now, one day after the service was completed, the transmission is very rough when it shifts gears and the "D" is flashing! Rpms race between gear shifts. What could they have done wrong. I had no problems before this service was performed. Of course today is Sunday and the service department is not open. Any ideas? What should I have them do to fix this? Have they caused a terrible problem or was this problem already brewing? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I suggest checking axles (front) and feel tires for a break split. I would start at a tire shop, not a Honda dealer unless you really trust the person. Could be tires with mud caught in the rims, make sure rims are perfectly clean use a pry bar to remove any sand or mud.

check . tires for out of round breaking apart between tread, and also check axles, bent rims or rims with small bits of mud caught in them can create shutter. Most garages will select the most expensive detailed option when problem solving

check color of your tranny oil it will tell you a great deal. I would call Honda to see if they will stand behind their product. Sounds like they like money take it to another dealer.

I have an 04 pilot, trans went about two weeks ago. It literally broke apart, there was a brake in the drivers side with oil all over the on the underside of the fender lining. in the course of removing the trans I noticed that my oil hose on the drivers side on the cab side of the tranny had been bent at 90 degrees not allowing any oil thru it. What is the purpose of this hose that feeds two areas of the transmission from the center moving to the side and rear. My replacement trans does not have the same system it has one mostly metal hose and distribution system that feeds only the rear part of the tranny. Honda takes no responsibility for this stupid error. Trans worked perfectly until blow up.
#370 of 392 Lurching problem in 2011 Pilot?
Nov 13, 2012 (4:50 pm)
I have a 2011 Honda Pilot with only 9,000 miles on it. In the last few months I've noticed that while sitting at stop lights (i.e., in gear but brake applied) it will lurch forward. Even with brake applied you can feel a noticable 'tug' forward. I thought this was just part of the engine revving to compensate for A/C on a hot day, but it also happens when the A/C is off. Anyone else experiencing this?

My 2009 pilot is doing exact same thing. Keep taking it in but won't act up when they test drive it. Please let me know what u find out. Taking mine back in today

My trans worked perfectly, until it just blow up. Yours is a problem I would demand perfection. New trans if that is actually the problem. Check tires and mud on rims or a bent rim. NR

My wife 04 pilot just got the flashing D yesterday at 107k, I drove it last night the D was flashing and I can't not manually shift to the lower gears, the car is driving fine with no shifting problems on the road and freeway, and now the D is not flashing but I still can not shift to the lower gears, I was thinking maybe the sensor is not working that would be cheap to fix, but after reading in this forums I'm not so sure, I guess I need to take it to the Honda dealer to get the bad news.
