Customer Question
I purchased a 2017...

I purchased a 2017 Honda about a month ago. Ever since I had it when idle it makes a rattling sound. While driving it is still noisy. My previous new cars when in idle I had to press the excelarator just to be sure that I turned it on. I have taken it back twice and they claim there is no noice. What could be causing the rattling?

Mechanic's Assistant: Where exactly do you think the noise is coming from? And how long has this been going on?

Since I purchased the car a month ago. Sound like it is coming from the front. My son says it sounds like a car that has no oil. I checked it does have oil.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '17 Honda?

Pilot

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Pilot yourself? What have you tried so far?

I took it back to the dealership. I even let my salesman listen to the noise also the serviceman this morning.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I checked online for issues similar to mine and I found a one Pilot and the cause was sue to some transmission issue.

HI,

Noises are next to impossible to diagnose without hearing it. Can you record the noise with a cellphone and then upload to youtube or a free file server like mediafire and post a link here for me.

And does the noise increase or stay the same if you rev the engine in park

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

Linda B.USA

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK
