What causes a 2006 Honda Pilot to loose Acceration power?
This has been going on for about a year and half now. So this is what usually happens-while driving and once I come to a stop, the VSA and check engine light comes on and the car will not accelerate pass 40mph. I originally thought it was the oil use that the mechanic were putting in but that's not the it either because even after a oil change it still does it. Need help figuring this out.
You need to know what code is set when the CEL comes on. Without that it is a guessing game. One guess would be a bad catalytic converter.
I had the same issue with my 2006 pilot. It was the alternator.
Also, when the car will not accelerate it has gone into the "limp mode" (allowing you to get off the road safely) but you should not continue to drive have as it could be unsafe when this happens on the road. 90% chance it is the alternator.
