2004 Honda Pilot Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your Honda's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Honda? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Pilot’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Pilot is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my Pilot's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Caring for your Honda Pilot’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Honda's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
