Have all the misfire codes showing with engine light on. Oil

Customer Question

Have all the misfire codes showing with engine light on. Oil has been getting dirty quickly after it has a fresh change.
JA: Have you seen the misfire code before? Has the car been stalling?
Customer: First time for code and engine is not misfiring or stalling
JA: What is the make/model/year of your car?
Customer: 2008 Honda Pilot 2WD
JA: Are you fixing your Pilot yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I am going to fix it myself. I have yet to try anything. Thought of just resetting the codes and see if it happens again but with the oil getting dirtier I know it probably needs something done
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: No, thank you

The first thing that will need to done is a valve adjustment and a computer update. the computer update can be done at any Honda dealer.

Why a valve adjustment?
Expert:  Steve replied 8 months ago.

There is actually some service information related to your issue that states the valves should be adjusted and update the computer.

A valve adjustment should be done every 105,000 or sooner if there is an issue anyway. The valves can tighten up over time causing misfire issues and burnt valves.
