Default Re: Sustained Vibration Only @60MPH Between 1700-1900RPM in a 2003 Pilot.

Mention "Service News June 03" page 1. IMPORTANT ...just because there is a
service news article doesnt mean this is what your vehicle is doing. Your
idea of going for a ride with a tech at time of drop off is great (read:
essential). Just make sure they are expecting this with your appointment.

Aliens working with the government have implanted their technology into
the Pilots and it sometimes causes vibration. It's all top secret.
Just mention code name "Service News June 03, page 1" and it will be
fixed.

I will not post copyrighted Honda service publications. Honda Service News -
June 03 has...on page #1, right hand side of the page...a reference similar
to the symtom you have described. I just read it myself and it would be easy
for your service advisor/technician to have not seen it yet. It may not
apply so I wont go into details. -just trying to help. Let me know if
you'd rather I not and I won't do it again.

I've already performed the throttle cable bracket adjustment on my
Pilot long ago when I started experiencing my pinging/tapping problem
soon after I got the car. I still have the p/t noise problem though
and despite a couple of testdrives with the technician who told me
that he didn't hear anything unusual.

My p/t noise is on the faint side, not the usual loud noise level
you'd get on a older car. Still, I was expecting the technician to
spot it out.
