Harsh upshifts on an 08 pilot
. I added an additive, and after two days the problem went away, when I drive. When my wife drives, the problem is still there. It is a really hard jerk when it happens.
JA: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with a Honda. The Honda Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
JA: Great! What have you tried so far?
Customer: A little background. My wife rear ended another car. I think that the body shop "topped off' the ATF during repairs/replacement of the transmission
cooler. I have drained and refilled the ATF three times since, then used the additive. Again, the harshness went away 1 1/2 days after the additive, for me, but my wife says it still shifts hard when she drives. I have not ridden with her to experience the rough shifting.
JA: Is there anything else the Honda Mechanic should be aware of about your Honda?
Customer: Prior to the additive, the harsh shifts I experienced were really harsh. I could feel them through the seat, like a kick in the butt.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Honda Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.
