In 2010 all Crosstours were V6..you have the 2WD model? is that a 6 cylinder? i thought the 2wd's were 4 cylinder
Sucks that you experienced the misfire issue but great that H is covering it.Time to revive this post after 2 years of silence. Mine just started flashing the engine light and the traction control light stays lit. Sent out an all call to my car community friends and they are full aware of this issue. Luckily one of my friends husbands is the service manager at the dealership I bought my car from. Waiting on the tow truck to come pick up my xtour right now. I'm at 101K and they are still accepting my claim! Other than this issue, the only other problem I have had was the alternator going out and that was a pain to install!! I'd rather pay someone to do that next time!
I heard similar "1 qt/1,000 miles normal oil consumption" nonsense from the dealer when I took my car in for an airbag warranty and an oil change recently. I laughed and said abused cars that are raced on the street with blown rings burn less oil.I'm a couple months ahead of you. I got the Check Engine light but was able to drive it to the dealership. They started out wanting $500+ to replace the plugs. After a little research you can see this problem is wide spread. I've owned the car since new and it has 70K on it (2010). We got approval for Honda to cover the service charge. They replaced 4 of the spark plugs and upgraded the software. Replacing the plugs fixed the issue, but that's a band aid on the real issue of poor quality rings or poor quality ring installation that allows oil to foul the plugs.
Honda extended the warranty to cover this for 8 years. With my car that time has past. Now the fight wit Honda is to get them to fix the oil consumption (1 quart/1,000 miles). They say this is nornal... Ya right! Navybrat02, please let us know how Honda treats you. My experience has not been good.
Absolutely sure your timing marks are perfect? 1 tooth off on a cam gear can drive you crazy when everything else is perfect.wassup, I have a 2011 crosstour v6 ex-L with the same problem. Old engine was knocking beyond repair. Install used engine with 60k miles and aligned it with new timing belt kit, new spark plugs, new cam and crank sensors, new coils (circuit okay), new injectors (circuit okay), tried 2 used computers, fuel pressure okay, oil pressure okay. I get random misfires at idle but not severe enough to flash the check engine light--at least 1 or 3 misfire counts randomly while monitoring the PIDS.
The misfire is not consistent until I put it under high load with full throttle down to the floor the engine would misfire, stall, and not accelerate to my demand. The code is always p0306 #6 cylinder misfire and check engine light flashing. I turn off the car, restart the car and the misfire is gone but issue can be reproduced. Sometimes I leave it over night and the check engine light disappears. I pull out the plugs no signs of oil. Also sometimes I get a hard start during a hot or cold condition. And for some reason there is always power going to the vtech oil pressure switch on both banks with the key off, not sure why as I don't have the pin outs for this ecm. I checked for shorts to power and non was found. I disconnected the oil pressure switch on both banks to try to produce a code at idle and under load, but ecm couldn't trigger a code. I'm going to the dealer soon and try the ecu update as suggested. I'll post back if something new happens.
Yes I doubled checked the timing it's okay. MAF and the tube plumbing is okay. NGK iridium yes.Absolutely sure your timing marks are perfect? 1 tooth off on a cam gear can drive you crazy when everything else is perfect.
MAF new or clean?
Air intake tube air tight?
NGK Laser Iridium plugs?
