Question about 2006 Honda Ridgeline

1 Answer

Stress crack I had what appeared to be a stress crack that showed up one morning all by itself. NO impact zone that I could see. I took it to Diamond Valley Honda for inspection and had the ball point pen ploy done to me. I couldn't see the impact zone but was told you could feel it with the pen ..well I could feel the whole crack with the pen! They are making excuses for faulty glass or missing welds that cause such fractures. I'm getting an outside opinion and will persue with vigorous fortitude if necessary. What should i do

What is the milage on your Ridgeline? If it has some miles on it, remember, it's a truck. It rides somewhat rough over the rough roads, andd this is going to generate more rattles that a sedan with soft suspension.

My 2006 with 16,000 miles has developed it's first rattle (except see below) somewhere on the right passenger side. Overall I'm happy with it.

Ridgelines, at least those of my model, are known to have a bad rattle from the small radio speaker grills in the dash top. This can be easily checked by just reaching up and holding the grill as you drive. If the rattle stops, this where is't coming from. It can also easily be fixed. Push the grill toward the front and pull the rear edge up. The grill, with the speaker attached, comes out. Put some kind of padding around the small clips on all 4 corners. The design has made these fit too loosely in their opening, and the grill/speaker will rattle. I used the small round fabric and adhesive backed pads sold to put on vases, etc to stop scratches on furniture. I cut one of these in half and put a piece on each of the clips and put the speaker back in. Stopped this rattle.

There are several things that could cause this problem. First is when was the last time you replaced the fuel filter? Next thing you need to do is open your radiator cap to see if there is oil in your coolant and also pull your oil dipstick to see if there is any white stuff on the bottom of the dipstick. If either of these things are true then you have a blown head gasket. The last thing could be a bad coil or even engine control unit (ECU). Good luck.

Water leak by the front of the transmision


I had the same symptom and it turned out to be the small metal tube ($5 part) off the back of the water pump that feeds the coolant line that lays in the valley under the intake plenum. When the valley fills with coolant/water it spills off the back of the motor down the front of the trans. To fix the problem you need to remove the entire intake, fuel rails and plenum (took me 2 days to R&R plus acquire the parts) to get to the problem. I suggest you replace the water pump at the same time while you're in there. Not a hard job just lots of bending over wrenching. The shop wanted $1500, I had $500 into parts including plugs, alternater, water pump, belts, coolant and hoses. Good luck.

My 1999 honda passport overheats when a/c is on. changed thermostat, waterpump, radiator cap. I don't know what else to check


It could be that conditions inside the engine itself is causing excess amounts of heat to be generated, and that the a/c is stressing it beyond that limit. Possibly switch to synthetic oil next oil change, and check what services might be available along those lines and see if the problem persists. Otherwise, the a/c itself might be drawing too much power.

Check the compression on that cylinder,and the valve springs on that cylinder,it is most likely that problem,or,a crack in the intake,on number two,They will crack under the intake on that cylinder in the oil valley.If this was at all helpful,please rate,and thank you.

Number of miles since last transmission filter cleaning and transmission fluid replacement could have a strong impact.
Check the fluid level and fluid color and odor.
If level is ok, and color appears good (gold or red) and odor is NOT burnt smelling, then a clog in one of the pumps inside the transmission could be the culprit - take it to your local transmission shop.

If the fluid is any of the other issues listed above,
Drain the fluid (using a 4 dollar drill pump available at Harbor Freight) via the transmission dipstick tube. Now pour in an identical amount of new fluid (amount is not specified because you cannot get all the fluid out this way - so add only the amount that you are able to remove).

Put a few miles on it and it will be much better.

BTW - I assume that you have checked for the obvious vacuum leak - cracked vacuum hose, or disconnected hose....

Let us know!! -Jim
