  1. my timing belt has been installed but Engine Light and Traction Light are on which mean the timing belt has been put correctly.
    Hoe can correctly re-position it, and what is the TDC of the Honda pilot touring 2013

  2. I recently replaced my water pump and timing belt on a 2011 Honda Pilot 3.5L engine. I have tripled check my timing and they are all where they are suppose to be. I started the engine and after a few seconds, engine rpm revs to 2000 and check engine light comes on indicating a multifire malfunction codes (P0300, 301 302 and 303) The engine was running fine prior to me replacing belt. I only replaced the belt because most mechanics and honda recommends it at 75000 to 100,000 miles as preventative maintenance. I am wondering now if I have the J35 engine. All my research prior to watching your video did not mention that. Is it possible that I may not have a J35? Are there different versions?


    Highly Confused
