  1. Second Generation Ridgeline (2G 2017+)
    So a few weeks back I did some light off roading, mostly gravel roads and a few 2 tracks for a couple hours, mostly driving 10 to 30 mph in 3 to 6 inches of snow. A few days later as I was coasting to a light waiting for it to change, I got down to around 20 mph and the light turned green. I got...

    Has anyone checked on the cost of a tranny fluid change? I was just quoted $340! In the past this was $130-$160 for my other Hondas.

    Yesterday, I was sitting in the drive thru lane of fast food restaurant, when the transmission switched into neutral on its own, the engine sputtered and then it stalled out. I was able to restart the engine and continue driving. Five minutes later, I was sitting in the left turn lane of a major...
  4. First Generation Ridgeline (1G 2006-2014)
    Was driving home after picking my kid up from daycare and was cut off by a SOB going 75-80mph. Upon accelerating again the engine had minimal to no power and by the time I pulled over to the shoulder I could smell a burning smell. The whole dash lit up with no distinguishable alarm. Had it towed...

    Gather ‘round all and listen to the tale of a fool who seems to have done more harm than help. Once upon a time I had a Honda Civic and that Honda Civic developed bad struts, shortly after, my CV axles started getting in an uproar. Last night my CV axles and Koni struts came in so tonight I...

    I’m about to purchase a 2017 EX-L with 55k km and will have it inspected beforehand by CAA (Canadian equivalent to AAA). How do I get them to verify that there are no injector nor tranny issues? My first Ridgeline and first post. Thanks for sharing your expertise!

    I have a 3 month old RTL-E. When going down a slight hill from a stop (every time I leave the house) it seems to want to stay in low gear and the giving it a bit of gas it still doesn't want to shift to a higher gear because it seems stuck in 1st or second gear and any throttle action jerks my...
  8. 1G Mods, Installs and How-To's
    I am currently looking at replacing the rear differential, transfer case, and transmission fluids. I was wondering how many gallons/liters of each fluid I should buy to make sure I have enough?

    My Ridgeline was great for the fist 30k miles and 3 years. I used D4 all the time for engine breaking. Now it has started this very strange behavior, and only when well warmed, maybe 30 minutes of driving. When first decelorating from say 45mph, in D4, all is normal, and as it has always...

    Apparently I don’t understand how to use these. I’ve had a manual tranny for 26 years in another truck but these baffle me. Whether in Econ mode or regular mode when I have S mode selected, the transmission will shift up on its own, before I select paddle up. I wondered if it was a powertrain...

    Last week my '07 Ridgeline (134K miles) rounded a corner and after a few seconds of intermittent engagement the engine disengaged from the drive. On pulling over / coasting to a stop and popping the hood, a quick survey found an overflow at the transmission cooler expansion tank. After pick up...

    I'm up to two... original owner, 2006 RTL. Rebuilt the first time at 125K for $3300, due to the strawberry milkshake of death. And just rebuilt again at 251K for $4500, due to an internal failure. Let's hope nothing else major goes wrong for at least 12 months! :/
  13. Miscellaneous/General Honda Ridgeline Discussions
    I have a 2006 Ridgeline with 350k+ miles on it that I think finally needs a new transmission. I have been watching my local part yard for a Ridgeline to come in but I've had no luck so far. On the other hand I have seen many other vehicles with H5 transmissions (Pilots, Odysseys, Etc.) come and...

    While driving back from Western PA tonight I experienced two error messages. The dash indicated a “Transmission System Problem” and “Blind Spot System” failure message. This occurred after about 1 hour of driving on a 4 hour drive. The PRNDL indicator also flashed all the letters. This is on a...
  15. Second Generation Ridgeline (2G 2017+)
    I had a weird chain of events happen Friday (and the week leading up to Friday too) on my 2017 RTL-E with 35, 125 miles on it. In the past week my dash flashed warnings for a split second 3 to 4 times. Friday afternoon my transmission developed a shudder on the 2nd to 3rd shift which I was...

    Hey all, when I bought my RL back in May I ordered a blue driver OBDII Scan Tool that connects to a phone and transmits live data as well as a multitude of other things like reading ABS codes Engine codes and even SRS codes. Do any of you all have one of these devices? I was under the impression...
  17. 1G Problems & Issues
    For the last few months I've dealt with brief hesitations or loss of power during light acceleration. Then on Monday, the hesitations got worse and started happening while I was driving down the highway, and my VTM-4 warning light came on (not the one on the button), and the transmission...

    I just picked up a used 2010 Honda Ridgeline, automatic, V6, a couple weeks ago. It runs just fine, but every so often the engine light comes on and sometimes the 'D' (drive) light will flash. Transmission fluid seems fine. I ran it up to an AutoZone the last time the light came on, and the...

    Hi, I’ve never experience this before, and I’m not a mechanic, so figured asking a forum like this might be a good resource. I’ve not had any issues at all with my Ridegline, which I’ve had for 2 years. It has 34,500 miles. Today, I started my car, backed out of my spot, and then put it in...
  20. Second Generation Ridgeline (2G 2017+)
    First post! Just bought a 2019 Sport this past weekend, traded in my 2007 ridgeline after driving for 12 years. So after the first day I noticed something that seems not correct. When I am in a low speed, say 15 mph or less and usually in a parking lot situation I am hearing a whining noise...
