SOURCE: VTM rear differential Liquid needed at how many miles

The diff fluid is only changed if the diff needs repair, or if you suspect water has entered it, check it on a regular basis for leaks and if you think water has gotten in through the vent.

SOURCE: I have a 2009 Honda pilot. has a tapping noise when in reverse.

VTM 4 is a traction control system designed for better traction and fuel efficiency. I'd get it back to the dealer ASAP. There seems to be a coil malfunction in the rear axle. I'd make them fully check out the rear axle in addition to checking out the coil sensors themselves. Best of luck to you!

SOURCE: 2008 Honda Pilot Rear View Mirror Installation

At most auto parts stores, they carry what is called "Rearview mirror adhesive" - It costs about $4 or $5, and comes is a little "blister" package. It is a special two-part adhesive (utilizing a pre-cleaner and a "gluing" agent) that is REQUIRED for installing these mirrors on glass - Super glue will not work for this,... All you will do with superglue is make a mess... - The adhesive isn't terribly hard to use, but it does require a bit of patience, and I'd recommend following the instructions to a "T" for the best results (Temperature, time, etc..). Hope that helps some...

My check engine light and vtm light are on in my 2008 Honda Pilot I checked the codes it's saying the egr valve is bad would that cause the Vtm light to come on to


Yes, the VTM-4 module will light up.

Here's the deal; when you manually turn on the Variable Torque Management-4 system, the light to the console switch is illuminated- letting you know that the vehicle is in traction control mode- and it is functioning properly.

However, if you did not manually activate the VTM, and your cruising along under normal driving conditions, but you start experiencing engine problems, like when the Exhaust Gas Recirculation valve starts to malfunction, this malfunction will cause the engine to misfire and lose engine power.

When this loss of engine power occurs, the VTM perceives that the engine power is being reduced to restore traction to the car's drive line (axle and wheels)- so it triggers the light to go on.

The triggering of the VTM could also happen when the idle speed control valve malfunctions.

So once you have the EGR valve replaced, the codes on the OBD module should be cleared; the check engine light will turn off; and the VTM system light will turn off too.

Unknown operation of the front diff.


please ask again.
are you asking a driveline question, and is vastly complex. read it.
awd?
off the wiki, , does this help,?
the Ridgeline is powered by a transversely mounted J35A9, (2006-2008) J35Z5, (2009-present) 3.5 L V6 with a five speed automatic transmission. The all-wheel drive system operates in front-wheel drive mode under normal conditions and automatically transfers power to either rear wheel via a locking differential when it senses a loss of traction in the front. The VTM-4 system can be locked in first, second or reverse gears at speeds under 18 mph (29 km/h).
The VTM-4 lock (rear diff lock) works in full rear power mode up until 6 mph (9.7 km/h) then it gradually transitions to power to the front and releases the VTM-4 lock at 18 mph (29 km/h)

How do i use the 4wd


Hi,

Bring your vehicle to a full and complete stop. The system will not properly engage if the vehicle is moving.

Shift the vehicle into first gear, second gear, or reverse before engaging the 4-wheel-drive system. The system is limited based on the speed of the vehicle, and these gears are within the speed range of the system's capabilities.

For Honda piliot, engage the VTM-4 system by pressing the VTM-4 Lock button on your Pilot's dashboard. The button will illuminate to confirm that the system is engaged.

I hope this helps.

Noise coming from the rear end of my 2004 honda pilot it really only occurs during cold weather and after it warms up you hear it slightly


When does the noise occur, while driving only, or driving and idle, in gear, or in neutral and park? If it occurs all the time (while driving and at a stand still in cold weather) it could be the fuel pump. If it occurs only while driving, it may be a wheel bearing. Describe the noise (humming, grinding, whirring, etc), and what is the mileage on the Pilot? Answer my questions so I can fine tune my answer. Thanks!

Have a warninig sign comes on . It says VT4. What


If it says VTM-4 that is your VTM-4 indicator:

This indicator normally comes on for a few seconds when you turn the ignition switch to ON (II). If this indicator comes on at any other time, there is a problem in the 4WD system. Have your vehicle checked by a dealer.

The Variable Torque Management 4WD System (VTM-4) automatically transfers varying amounts of engine torque to the rear wheels under lower traction conditions.

You can try the following:

To Disengage the VTM-4 Lock, do one of the following:

1. Press the VTM-4 Lock button.

2. Move the shift lever to D or D .

3. Turn the ignition to LOCK (0).

The VTM-4 Lock will temporarily disengage when the vehicle speed exceeds 18 mph (30 km/h). It will automatically engage again as the speed slows below 18 mph (30 km/h). The button light will remain on.

Hope this helps you understand the light. If not, leave a comment and I will try to help you further.
