  1. 2G Problems, Fixes & TSB's
    At light throttle, 2nd gear and up, quite often whenever I hit 1800-1900 rpm, I get a single "Pop" and usually a noticeable lurch. It sounds like you pop the top off a Pringles can. None of the other Noise discussions seemed to fit this description and its driving me nuts. It is not constant...
  2. 1G Under The Hood / Performance
    2006 RTL. Problem: when I am driving I hear a noise and feel a vibration that sounds similar to having a box fan in a window and a strong breeze blows through it. There is an audible change in pitch and I feel a vibration and there seems to be a drop in power. when does it happen: I don’t...
  3. 2G Problems, Fixes & TSB's
    I recently purchased a new Ridgeline as of December 2019, it has rougly 3,000 on the clock. In early December I noticed that when accerating from a stop in first gear it made a rather unusual noise, but I just attributed it to my imagination. Honestly it was probably nothing. As of a few days...
  4. Second Generation Ridgeline (2G 2017+)
    2018 Ridgeline. 13k miles. Sound started shortly after I purchased it new. It's intermitent and every time I've brought it to the dealer they're "unable to replicate the noise." The sound goes away if I pull down or push up on the steering wheel but the second pressure is released, the...
  5. Second Generation Ridgeline (2G 2017+)
    This is really the only irritant I have with the G2. On my G1 I loved to have the front windows up while the rear windows and sliding rear window were open. I opened the sliding rear window also because it reduced the helmholtz resonance created by having only the two rear windows open. When I...
  6. First Generation Ridgeline (1G 2006-2014)
    What is this noise??? Please Listen. Hello, we just purchased a 2013 Sport AWD from CarMax yesterday. After the one hour drive home, we heard this noise during braking. Please click link for sound/video. We are taking it back to be checked on Monday. In the meantime, does anyone know what might...
  7. 1G Under The Hood / Performance
    Some background and the problem: So not too long ago I had the timing belt done, water pump serpentine tensioner, timing belt tensioner done by the Dealership for 700. I figured I would do the differential oil change and transfer case oil change later. So some things I noticed...when draining...
  8. 2G Accessories, Performance Parts & Modifications
    I'm debating adding roof rails & crossbars for my occasional long trips and helping hold long 2x4 from the lumber yard, etc. How much wind noise comes from this set up? Is the noise mainly from the crossbars, because I'm thinking I could keep them off until I need them? If I do go for it, any...
  9. 1G Problems & Issues
    I have a 2014 Ridgeline Sport. Love this thing. Bought it used with 20k miles. Vehicle now has 27K so here is the deal. After you drive the vehicle for a short bit (when rotors have been used a few times) I get almost like a squeaking noise when pressing the brake pedal coming from the right...
  10. 1G Problems & Issues
    Hello there-- 2014 Sport... At 16000 miles, just started developing a "popping" noise upon cold starting and cranking the wheel first thing in the morning. Some feedback in the steering wheel, as well. Coincides with a whining noise from the PS starting. Checked fluids, all good, no sign of...
  11. 1G Problems & Issues
    Hey ROC, I am new to trucks, I love Hondas and have had many but this is my first truck. When I put it in reverse and start to give it gas it seems to growl... Almost as if there is something slipping and grabbing very quickly until I get it moving. As long as I'm moving it makes no noise and...

    Hi, recently installed new 4 channel, Jensen amp to existing head unit. wired LOC right off unit to minimize any noise from wires. Used thick RCA cables from LOC to Amp. Installed 2 sets of Kenwood speakers. As soon as any volume, (01) is applied, I get a lot of white noise, (not engine)...
  13. 1G Under The Hood / Performance
    So my '07 has about 45000 on it, and a couple months ago it started doing this thing where right when I start the truck, it sometimes makes this very slight engine groan from idle up to about 1500 rpm ("Woooawww", like a long mouthed "wow"), after which it vanishes. After I drive it for a few...

  15. 1G Problems & Issues
    OK, Here is my problem. I got a 2007 Honda Ridgeline. It has been a great truck except for one little thing. At 30 to 40 mph when you are just giving it a little gas, something will start to vibrate, rattle a little. If you speed up, it goes away, if you reduce speed, it goes away. I don't...
  16. 1G Problems & Issues
    I'm suspicious of the rear axle bar section that's directly attached to wheel on either side. I'll spare you the details why. When I grab bar (either wheel side) with my hand I feel about a 1/4 inch of play (wobble). The same bars connected to front wheels have no play at all and they have to...

    After an afternoon muddin' through some pits about an 1hr north of T.O., a high pitched whine could be herd at low speeds and even at idle. I cannot recall if i herd this noise start before or after i pressured washed the car and engine. After numerous visits under the hood im positive the...

    I have had my 07 Ridgeline for a couple of months now and am pretty pleased overall. Prior to this, I have never driven anything but full size Chevy trucks so Honda was a new expierence and I caught a little grief by buying a Honda, but I am converting them! The biggest problem I have had...
  19. 1G Problems & Issues
    Apologies if this has been covered elsewhere on the forum. I've searched "AC", A/C", "air conditioning" and "air conditioner", none of which seem to mention the issue I'm having. Been staying in the Phoenix area the past few months, and the past weekends have been warm. Here's the issue: I...
  20. 1G Recalls, TSB's and Notices
    Hi, I have read threads regarding the AM crackling noise that occurs when going over bumps or traveling on bad roads. This is occuring with my 2006 Ridgeline as well. I understand there is a TSB for this, but is the dealer obligated do the work if my truck is out of warranty?
