I have a 2009...

I have a 2009 Honda Pilot, that quite in my driveway and when i tried to restart has power or doesnt start. I changed ERG valve, that didn't help. I put a OBD2 Scan on and code P0301 came up.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the battery, particularly the terminal connections? Are they corroded?

Yes

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

Yes, I put a new EGR valve on

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

It turns over but doesn't start.

Check to see if it runs on starting fluid. If not check to see if you have spark. If you have spark check compression. Let me know, thanks.

Customer requested call. I talked to him, sounds like timing belt failure. He is going to pull RH upper timing cover off and advise back if needing further help. Dennis

ok got the drawings, i removed back cover and noticed belt is loose on cam pully.

ya.... if it is loose, there is a problem. It should be very tight on pulley. You will likely find source of failure when and if you take it apart the rest of the way. I will send you the procedure for installing belt as well in case you ned it.

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

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

This expert is wonderful. They truly know what they are talking about, and they actually care about you. They really helped put my nerves at ease. Thank you so much!!!!
