Question about 2003 Honda Pilot
MY HONDA PILOT WAS DRY, THE ONLY INDICATION OF ANY TROUBLE WAS THAT IT FAILED TO TURN ON...IT SOUNDED AS THOUGH THE BATTERY WAS FAILING OR THE FUEL PUMP WAS BAD. ONCE WE FIGURED OUT THAT THERE WAS NO OIL WE REPLACED 5 QTS AND THEN THE ENGINE LIGHT CAME ON FOR
ABOUT 15 MINUTES THEN WENT OFF. THERE DOESN'T SEEM TO BE ANY PROBLEMS RIGHT NOW????? HOW SOON AFTER WILL I KNOW FOR SURE THE EXTENT OF THE DAMAGE DONE AND HOW COME AN OIL LIGHT WOULDN'T COME ON BEFORE THAT?????

ok, this is a commom problem with this 92 hondas,
it may be the pump fuel relay, which is under the dash on the driver side by the fuse panel.
here is a way to determine that.
when you turn the key on the on position
do you hear the fuel pump running while the engine light is on, and does the pump stop running afteer the engine light goes off?
if you do hear the pump running then it means that fuel pump is working fine ( since it way just replaced), but if you don't hear it running while the check engine light is on ( about 2 seconds) chances are the fuel pump relay is not working as it should.
also there are clicks that have to be heard on the starting process.
1 when you turn key to on possition
2 when the check engine light goes off( a click has to be heard just after it goes off)
3 after the car starts
If you don't hear this clicks, try to get your ear close the location of the fuel pump relay( near the fuse panel under the dash).
the fuse relay is just a bunch of circuits soldered, so you can get it to someone who knows how to solder and fix it.
or just get a replacement one at any junkyard. ( cheapp)

P1361 TDC Sensor Intermittent Interruption (I got this from Engine-Light-Help.com)
TDC should mean Top Dead Center.
It is the sensor that tells the computer the #1 cylinder piston is at the very top. And therefore, fires the spark plug.
Since the maintenance done above, I believe the the timing marks for the timing belt is not lined up properly. Being off by one tooth will cause this problem.

yes open the trunk and pull the carpet out of it and look at the floor of the trunk up towards the back seat u will see a round plate with some wires stickin out of it first see if all the wires are plugged up, if not plug them up, then if that doesnt fix it remove the plate and replace your fuel pump

p1259 is a problem with the VTEC system. this system is for improved performance at higher rpm's. oil can get sludged up and clog the system, or the VTEC solenoid can just go bad. you can always have someone with a scan tool clear the codes to turn off the light, but until the problem is fixed, it will just keep coming back on
