Honda Pilot owners have reported 4 problems related to engine oil leaking (under the engine and engine cooling category).
The check engine light came on. I adjusted the fuel cap but it kept coming on. . . So I took it in to learn that I had little, if any oil. I had the oil changed at the Honda dealer less than 2 months prior to this happening! no indicator lights came on to say that the oil was low. I did research online and noted that similar Honda owners were having this problem. The oil is leaking at an excessive rate. So I got the oil replaced. Now, 2 months later, the check engine light is back on due to low oil levels, which were just replaced. There is an issue with the oil staying in the vehicle, and there are several complaints with this issue!.

On July 19, 2014 I had an oil appoinmentat 1:30 to have my free oil change. Of course the dealership has to make money some how, so my service advisor offered that I have the transmission serviced. Since I was getting the free oil I felt as though I needed to buy for some service. So the did both oil and transmission service. Left the dealship no more than ten minutes later on my way home,my Pilot started smoking on the right side as I stopped and was praying the light turn gree n so I could go I turned and more smoke come up. I jumped out of the car and ran to my house which was not far away and got my husbanc to come back with me only to find my car completly engulfed in flames. My car was a total loss. I believe that this was something that occured from the dealership. I never had problems with my car. Now the fire inspector that was hired by my insurnce company stated that on the first inspection there was no transmission oil in the car it had all leaked out. Transmission is very flamable. I would could have died in that car. Nothing was salvagable. I would like very much for someome to check about this. I filed a claim with myt insurance comapny. I have also filed a claim against Honda directly and of course I have not been in contact with. This was a devastating accident/fire what ever that I have had to deal with. I know in my heart that this was something done at the dealership level and this has really put a scary situation for me. I am very hesitate about a lot of things now. I have lots of pictures that I took that you can see that my car was a total loss. Fire totally burnt my car. Please contact me 772-370-7416.

The contact owns a 2007 Honda Pilot. While changing the oil, the contact noticed engine oil leaking through the engine block casting. He took the vehicle to the dealer twice. The first time they informed him that the oil pan plug was leaking. The second time they stated that oil was seeping through the engine block. The dealer stated that the failure was due to a manufacturer defect and they replaced the engine block. The current and failure mileages were 5,000.
