Reduced engine power has been reported on 2016-2017 Honda Pilot and 2017 Ridgeline vehicles, accompanied by diagnostic trouble code (DTC) P0369 (CMP sensor circuit intermittent interruption) and signs of excessive camshaft end play.

According to Honda, the camshaft thrust cover surface roughness may be out of specification. To reduce end play, some techs are replacing the camshaft thrust cover. But eventually, the camshaft will just machine the thrust cover again, resulting in further excessive end play.

According to Honda, for now, replace the affected camshaft and camshaft thrust cover together, along with the damaged CMP sensor. Also, be sure to check for damage to the camshaft pulley. If damaged, replace it.
