Well, 101.5K miles I had my '03 Pilot in for her new timing belt, water pump, and tensioner at the end of Sep. Per these threads, I also asked them to check the engine mounts. The engine mounts were all fine and I didn't detect any snorting noise/tach movement for the first few weeks. But now for the last few weeks I'll still hear an occasional snort ~ 45-48 MPH. Doesn't happen quite as often or as loud as in prior 6 mos but still there. Not sure what to do...will replace plugs, etc. at the next oil change but have already changed out transmission fluid, rear differential fluid, and now the timing belt, etc. but still there yet less noticeable. Will continue to monitor but still no firm resolution thus far...

I have about 5,000 miles on my Pilot and when I hit about 50 mph and increase speed or hit 50 mph and take my foot off the gas and let car decelerate I haer an moanining type of sound from the fron of the car, seems to come from the tires. Does this sound like a problem with the bearings?
Has anyone else had this issue?

omg! its the idle valve EAC control unit. common problem on odysseys and pilots. causes fantom revvings and intake gusts at random occasions and rpms.

I'm not familiar with EAC control unit...is it an expensive part and labor to replace? What happens if you ignore it - will it get worse damage anything else? This is the 1st I've heard a potential root cause on this issue...and how did you learn this? Thx for any insights you can share with us Pilot owners...

I have a 2003 Honda Pilot EXL w/ 137,000 miles. Around 45 mph, it sounds as thought I am driving over rumble strips/ speed bumps (?). I am not sure if it is from the front or rear. I have replaced left front wheel bearing and tie rod ends, flushed the differential and the transmission fluid. When a TECH rides with me-there is no sound that we cn hear. But it is still there and I wonder what it might be.

Does anyone out there own a 2012 Honda Pilot that moans and vibrates under the floorboard when the car is idling and the A/C is on and the issue goes away when the A/C is turned off? What are your findings and results?

We have a 2012 Honda Pilot EXL 4WD with about 10,500 miles on it. We brought the truck to the dealer for an oil and filter change and also told them to checkout a noise and vibration from the passanger floor. It only happens when the AC cycles on. The dealer first replaced the compressor on Tueasday then replaced the serpentine belt tensioner on Wednesday. Still no luck. they have placed a call into Honda's tech line and Honda is aware of the problem but they do not as of yet have a solution. Someone from corporate is comming next week to take a look at the truck. If you have this same noise make sure the dealer just doesn't start replacing parts at random. Honda doesn't even know how to fix it yet.
