Engine/piston/ring issue. Rings not aligned properly in one of pistons ( factory/assembly error) resulted in oil leaking and thrown on engine , caused 2 spark plugs to fail, this caused engine light to come on and then the vsa and vtm-4 came on and the eco light stopped working. . . We were travelling 70 miles an hour on highway. We were really afraid when the vtm-4 light came on! we had to pull off road, for fear of ruining the 4-wheel drive system, we didn't know what was happening. . We couldn't get the lights to go off, finally vtm-4 light went off and on the other lights stayed on. . . It was confusing. . . . Because the lights were false indicators due to being connected to the engine light. This malfunction caused the vsa and vtm-4 and eco light to come on falsely. Creating panic while travelling 70 miles an hour on interstate. Creating the false impresssion that the 4-wheel drive system had been activated while travelling at a speed of 70 miles an hour. Suggestion:. . . . Engine light should be separate from other warning system lights. . This incident occured approximately 300 miles from our home on a Sunday . . We took automobile to dealer Monday a. M. And had repair of piston/ring gaskets etc it was determined the other warning lights were false indicators. . .

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.
