My 2005 Honda Pilot is taking a time to shift/accelerate

Customer Question

Hi. My 2005 Honda Pilot is taking a long time to shift/accelerate and/or erratic acceleration after shifting from N to D. My mechanic says I need 1st, 2nd, and 3rd speed sensors. But I cant find anything like that on ebay or amazon (the speed sensors I've found don't have "1st"/"2nd" terms and don't have sets of three). Hence, this is probably his jargon. Please what's the correct term so that I can buy the part for him to fix?

Welcome to JustAnswer.

Your Pilot only uses 2 speed sensors for shift control and main-counter shaft speed monitoring. Both are the same part number but installed in different locations on the transmission housing. The correct part number is: 28810-P7W-004 Click on the part number for a online honda parts site. There is one option on Amazon and another on ebay.
