Question about 2002 Honda Odyssey

1 Answer

Transmission Fluid explodes out under hood.

I have an Honda Odyssey 2002. While traveling along Highway 95south past summer somewher in the Carolina's My transmission disengage while running around 90mph for a least 15min. I pulled over pop the hood and Trans fluid was all ove the hood, whell tie roods and engine. I let the van cool down for 1 hour and was able to dirve like nothing ever happen. So i kept it under 70mph and got off the next exit to a gas station to check the Trans fluid and just needed a quart.

This has happen twice this past summer while doing over 80mph. Honda states maybe a pressure build or need new transmission but not sure. I think I need a better answer or just maybe more possibilities of what could have cause this. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. (still running good since then but scare to drive over 70)

    Thanks, but I did have the service recall done for the second gear when first recalled. I'm not sure where the slice is or where I should be tightening but maybe I can have someone look into it. Thanks telemachus for your respond but I sure hope this is th3e answer. Also when I took it to Honda they made no such suggestion except we dont know and why run 80 or 90 or 100 in a minivan. So I said "why have 140 on the dash and I cant even do 80 without a problem" Basicly it was like we sell hondas but you cant drive them past 70 so look else where.

This year of van had a recall for the transmission because the second gear was getting too hot. It required a dealer to install a special part that spliced into the transmission cooler lines and dumped fluid down the transmission fill plug hole and onto the second gear. Perhaps under high speed, the slice is leaking. Check to see if you have this part and see if the splice clamps are loose. If so, tightening them may help.

Transmission fluid/filter change in 2000 Honda Odyssey


I would not recommend using Dexron III. Honda Odysseys are prone to transmission problems. A drain and fill with Genuine Honda Fluid is Recommended. The drain plug can be removed with a 3/8 ratchet at the bottom of the trans. The fill hole is at the top of the trans. You remove it with a socket on a long extension. The capacity is close to 3 quarts

Next maintenance on a 2002 Honda Odyssey


I would do it as soon as you get it, because you never know when the previous owner took the car in for maintenance.
Typically, you would have:
- oil changed
- check for proper fluid levels
- any visible leaks
- all the bulbs working
- belts are in good condition
- air filter is relativey clean

Most of these should fit under "tune up" just make sure to ask where you get the vehicle serviced what their definition of a "tune up" is.

Which tank is the transmission fluid tank in my 96 honda odyssey


Transmissions do use a tank, they hold the fluid in the pan under the transmission. Find your transmission dipstick (usually near the firewall) - it is a long dipstick that reaches the level in the pan.

Check your owners manual for dipstick location and how to check your fluid - most transmission have to be checked when the vehicle is hot, engine running and the transmission in neutral.

Slipping Trans - 2002 Honda Odyssey


Change the fluid. Since you only get about half of the fluid to drain during a change (the rest is held in the torque converter with no way to drain it), you will have to change the fluid three times in order to dilute the "dirty" fluid with enough clean fluid to make the end product mostly clean. Change the fluid, then run the car for awhile. Repeat two more times. And only use Honda fluid.
