problem #2

Pilot 6-cyl

  • 49,600 miles


I was about 1 mile from my home when my 2007 Honda Pilot started to choke, all my warning signal lit up on my dashboard and my car died. No smoke was coming from my hood. Had it towed to braman Honda where they said I had a blown head gasket. There was coolant mixed in my oil, oil in my coolant and my radiator was cracked and both hoses needed to be replaced. My car prior to this gave me no warning of it overheating what so ever. They said my car went to 285 degrees, but I was never given any warnings. I don't know if this has anything to do with my car or this problem, nut the night before when I was driving home from work, my car smelled so bad like gas, that I had to roll down my window. I was thinking it came from outside, another car. When I turned my car off after I got home, the engine fan was so loud, I thought I left my car running! when I got home the next day from having my car towed, I noticed the same greenish brown fluid that was all over my engine on my driveway. It must have blown when I got home or was about to.

The contact owns a 2007 Honda Pilot. While changing the oil, the contact noticed engine oil leaking through the engine block casting. He took the vehicle to the dealer twice. The first time they informed him that the oil pan plug was leaking. The second time they stated that oil was seeping through the engine block. The dealer stated that the failure was due to a manufacturer defect and they replaced the engine block. The current and failure mileages were 5,000.
