Oil leak on 98 honda odyssey

Seemed to start immediately after starting the engine cold. At first appeared to be the oil filter, but after we changed the filter the leak continued. the leak appears to be coming from a nearby supply line. what should we look at to fix this?

    It could be the oil cooler o-ring which is right behind the oil filter. Torque the 30mm nut to 65ft/lbs. After that would be to change the oil cooler itself (expensive part). I did all that and still have a leak which I'm researching. Fill you in later!

Oil leak in 96 odyssey

Do you see a huge oil puddle under the car after it sits overnight (it would be huge!)? If no then the engine is burning the oil, you don't see smoke because the catalytic converter burns it up.

I had 2000 Honda Odyssey mini van. I baught last 3 months ago from Japan. I changed engine oil, gear oil, filters & battery . When ever I starts up engine, I wait for a few minutes for warming up. Than...

Your idle air control motor or valve may be faulty. Or the throttle position sensor may be out of whack, out of range. It sounds like a high idle problem, not a problem in the gearbox. Have the engine computer scanned for any trouble codes.
Good luck.

1996 Honda Odyssey overheating and has engine warning light.

Did you change out the thermostat? I would also change out top and bottom radiator hoses if they feel soft. They should have firm sides.

I recently got my (Honda Odyssey 2006) oil changed by a non Honda tech and now i need the service maintainence signal -code A14 reset so that i can be notified when the next oil change is due.

  • Lets get started. Place the key in the ignition and turn as if to start your minivan - but do not actually start your Odyssey.

  • 2) Locate and click the black odometer button located near the bottom of the instrument panel until "Oil Life" along with a percentage value appears.
  • 3) Release your finger from the button, then press and hold the button for ten (10) seconds.
  • 4) Once again, release your finger from the button, then press and hold the button for five (5) more seconds. Lets count: one Mississippi, two Mississippi, etc. all the way to five.
  • 5) Your Honda Odyssey's display panel should read "Oil Life 100%." You are done!

    How difficult is it to repair a rear seal leak on a 98 durango

    Go buy a can of Berryman's Chemtool B-12 (Auto Zone, Rieley's, WalMart, etc.). Have tools, oil, filter and drain pan on hand for oil change. Warm engine to operating temperature. SLOWLY add can of Berryman's to crankcase of running engine through long funnel. Adding too quickly will kill idling engine, so go slow. After adding, replace oil filler cap and allow to fast idle (2000 rpm or less) for 30 minutes. Turn off engine and drain oil immediately. remove dirty oil filter. Let drain for 30 minutes. Replace plug, spin on new filter, add oil (do not overfill); start with 4 qts. and start briefly and then turn off. let stand for 20 minutes and check with dipstick. Add slowly to bring oil up to full mark; NOT ABOVE. You have just repaired your leaking rear main seal. Berryman's softens and expands rubber seals, stopping 95% of leaks caused by dried out rubber seals. DO NOT use this on cars/trucks that use the old fashioned rope seals. Ask a parts man what kind of seal a 98 Durango has. It washes the wax off the rope and it will leak worse than before. Ray (garage owner)

    Hi I have a 02 Honda Odyssey. Since I had teh

    well oil consumption is either worn piston rings or worn valve guides and or seals,,,did they reuse the cylinder head that had the bent valves and just put new valves in it?if so i bet the vavle guides are damaged and the valve seals and oil is leaking by causing it to burn oil and thats why you have a ticking and oil consumption, i would take it back and demand a new cylinder head,,,for free

    Rather severe oil leak from the area of the oil filter

    I own a '99 Isuzu Oasis, which of course is really and '98 Odyssey with Isuzu nameplate. 214,000 miles, Cranked it up yesterday morning after 20 to 30 degree temps that night....took middle schooler to class approx 3-4 miles from home and approx 1/4 mile from home- noted severe burning oil smell in cabin and smoke from under hood.. Got it home and observed 3-4 quarts of leaked oil on the ground where I had been sitting just 15 mins before. Thought for sure I had ruined the engine after seeing all the oil in the gravel. Could not believe the leak was so severe, considering this car still runs like a beauty and has shown no leaking or other symptoms in the days before this occurred. Got home later that day and checked filter thinking maybe it had loosened. It had not. Refilled engine with oil and noted oil not leaking or dripping but pouring through area at engine block and oil cooler juncture at filter area. Found this forum and a few others on line and followed the plan , AutoZone: loan-a-tool 30mm 1/2" drive socket is all you need to do the job, except of course the oil cooler seal/O-ring which I got at Honda for 3 bucks. Took me all of 45 need to dettach hoses and leak antifreeze, just unscrew the 30mm nut and remove the old gasket/seal. Be sure to remove all the pieces, Mine was hard and brittle and broken in 3 pieces. What once was rubbery/pliable would now snap like a pretzel due to age/wear. When I buy my next one of these, and I will, because it is the best vehicle I have ever owned ( and I have owned several Hondas and Toyotas) I will preventative replace this seal at approx 150,000 miles.... this was close to being catastrophic failure- Thanks to this forum and others for the advice-plan to put another 100,000 miles on this baby!
