Remanufactured Honda Pilot Transmissions 


Designed specifically for the United States market, the midsize Honda Pilot offers plenty of room for your family and all their stuff. It also offers plenty of practical features, plenty of performance and the reliability that Honda is known for. However, transmission problems with the BVGA, BVLA, and PN3A can completely sideline an otherwise reliable SUV. So let’s see if installing a remanufactured Honda Pilot transmission could help you keep your truck on the road for a long time. 


Common Honda Pilot Transmission Problems  


Erratic Shifting / Loss of Forward Gears: If youre experiencing Honda Pilot transmission problems like slipping, erratic shifting, or failed gear engagement, the causes could range from a failed solenoid, to torque convertor problems. 


Another common problem is overheating. This happens when the moving parts inside the transmission are creating more friction heat than the ATF can remove. The most common cause of this condition is towing heavy loads, driving in stop/go traffic, or on mountain roads where the transmission has to shift a lot. 


Loss of 4th Gear and/or Reverse: Another common problem is an inoperable fourth or reverse gear. These issues are often caused by design flaws in the Reverse Boost Valve, channel plate, and stripped splines on the 4th gear clutch hub shaft. 


How to Solve Honda Pilot Transmission Problems 


Solution A: Buy a Used Honda Pilot Transmission 

Going to the local junkyard and picking up a used Honda Pilot transmission might seem like the cheapest and fastest option. But you need to consider the fact that you don’t know what the actual shape of the internal components are. It could very well be on the verge of transmission problems of its own, which would leave you in the exact same predicament that you’re in now. And that 30 – 90 day junkyard warranty probably won’t cover labor charges to install the replacement transmission if something goes wrong. 


Solution B: Buy a Rebuilt Honda Pilot Transmission  

Getting a rebuilt Honda Pilot transmission would probably seem like a better idea. However, a lot of mechanics and transmission shops will only rebuild your Honda Pilot transmission back to its original factory specifications. Which means that all of those factory design flaws are still going to be inplay. And that rebuilt transmission warranty might only be good at certain shops, which could do you no good if you have transmission problems while you’re traveling. 


Solution C: Buy a Remanufactured Honda Pilot Transmission 


If you want to get the most service life out of your little luxury SUV as possible, then you really should consider a remanufactured Honda Pilot transmission from Street Smart Transmission. Each one is completely disassembled and re-remanufactured, so nothing is left to chance. Theyre also modified to correct the factory design flaws, which will greatly extend the service life. Plus, you get a 3-Year/Unlimited Mile Nationwide Warranty. This will cover parts and labor charges at any licensed repair shop in the Continental United States, giving you a lot more flexibility and coverage.
