What causes a 2006 Honda Pilot to loose Acceration power?

Asked by Nov 18, 2015 at 03:33 PM about the 2006 Honda Pilot EX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

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.
