2006 Honda Pilot Misfire Codes

My Honda Pilot check engine recently started coming on. I took it to the delership and they read the code as misfire on all cylinders. The codes are: P0301, P0302, P0304, P0304, P0305, P0306 & P0300. The light comes on after the vehicle has been idle all night. Basically upon startup and 1 block from home. There is no indications of a misfire. The vehicle runs fine. Once the light comes on thr ECO system stops working. Is there any solutions. The dealership wants to adjust the cylinders, however they do not know if that is the solution. The vehicle has 95k miles.

Your Honda Pilot engine has VCM (variable cylinder management). With this system, various cylinders can be deactivated, by the engine computer, to increase fuel mileage.
I suppose that the dealer said that the VCM system would have to be adjusted in some way. Does the dealer have it right, is your question, yes? I don’t know. I haven’t done any of the tests on it that the dealer’s mechanics have had opportunity to do.
