About Honda Pilot engine

The Honda Pilot is a mid-size SUV, and Honda’s second SUV fully built and designed by Honda. The Pilot was released in the summer of 2002 for the 2003 model year to replace the body-on-frame Passport.

An engine is a machine designed to convert energy into useful mechanical motion. In common usage, an engine burns or otherwise consumes fuel, and is differentiated from an electric machine (i.e., electric motor) that derives power without changing the composition of matter. An engine may also serve as a “prime mover”, a component that transforms the flow or changes in pressure of a fluid into mechanical energy. An automobile powered by an internal combustion engine may make use of various motors and pumps, but ultimately all such devices derive their power from the engine. The term “motor” was originally used to distinguish the new internal combustion engine-powered vehicles from earlier vehicles powered by steam engines, such as the steam roller and motor roller, but may be used to refer to any engine.

First generation Pilot from 2002 to 2008

Like the 1st generation MDX, the Pilot is propelled by an aluminium alloy 3.5 L SOHC, 24 valve VTEC V6 engine with timing chain driven camshafts. The engine is rated at 240 hp SAE at 5400 rpm and 242 lb•ft of torque at 4500 rpm. it runs at 0-60 mph time of 7.6 seconds and 1/4 mile sprint of 15.9 seconds. For the 2006 model, the power was 244 hp SAE at 5600 rpm(4WD), 240 lb•ft of torque at 4500 rpm. Models from 2005 include a drive by wire throttle. The Pilot weighs in at a little over 4,400 lb, with a EPA estimated gas mileage for 2007 of 15 L/100 km; 19 mpg-imp city and 11 L/100 km; 26 mpg-imp.

Second generation Pilot from 2009 to present

The new Pilot is available in four trims; LX, EX, EX-L, and Touring. It is assembled at Honda Manufacturing of Alabama in Lincoln, Alabama. It receives a new 3.5L, V6, VTEC engine producing 250 hp SAE net at 5700 rpm and 253 pound-feet of torque at 4800 rpm. EPA fuel economy is 14 L/100 km; 20 mpg-imp (10 L/100 km; 28 mpg-imp) motorway for the front wheel drive transmission and 15 L/100 km; 19 mpg-imp city, 11 L/100 km; 26 mpg-imp motorway.

Checking your Pilot engine

All modern vehicles have a computer or the ECM (Electronic Control Module) that controls the operation of the vehicle Powertrain. The main purpose of this is to keep the engine running at top efficiency with the lowest possible emissions. With constantly growing demands for better fuel economy and new strictest emission regulations it’s not very easy to achieve. The engine parameters need to be constantly and precisely adjusted according to various conditions such as speed, load, engine temperature, gasoline quality, ambient air temperature, road conditions, etc. That’s why today’s cars have much more electronics than in early days, there is a large number of various sensors and other electronic devices that help the vehicle computer or ECM to precisely control the engine and transmission operation and monitor emissions.

The vehicle computer system has self-testing capability. When the computer senses that there is a problem with some of the components it stores the correspondent trouble code(s) in its memory and lights up the “Check Engine” or “Service Engine Soon” light to tell you that there is a problem and your car needs to be looked at.

To properly diagnose what is wrong, you need to take your car to a mechanic or a dealer. The technician at the dealership or a garage will then hook up the scanner to the car computer and retrieve the stored trouble code(s). Then he (she) will look it up in the service manual provided by a car manufacturer. The service manual contains the list of possible codes (about few hundred) and describes what each code means and what needs to be tested. The code itself doesn’t tell exactly what component is defective – it only indicates where to look, what engine parameter is out of normal range. The technician will have to perform further testing to pinpoint a defective part.
