Question about 1997 Honda Odyssey

1997 Honda Odyssey thermostat

I recently had the second scheduled timing belt and water pump replacement on my 1997 Honda Odyssey at 213,000 miles. Afterwards the temp gauge was showing the engine running extremely cold and I had little heat. I returned to the mechanic and they replaced the thermostat as well. Now the car runs within the mid-range for engine temperature, but much hotter than it used to before the repairs. Also the cooling fan runs on for several minutes after the car has been turned off. This is happening now with outside temps near zero and the heat blasting. I am concerned that in the summer with the AC on the car will overheat. Should I worry?

Honda recommends that the cooling system be topped up with coolant four times as part of the refill process. When the engine is fully cold open the radiator cap and add coolant until full. Run the car until fully warm with heater at maximum. Let it completely cool down. Remove radiator cap and top up with coolant. Repeat this process two more times. This helps purge the air out of the nooks and crannies in the cooling system.

Red light on maintenance required is on, what would that mean. Oil has been changed recently, approximately 45,000 miles on the car


the maintenance schedule is in the owners manual on the last 2 pages I believe, But here are some of the things to check the maintenance schedule on that car calls for oil changes every 3,750 miles if you primarily use the car around town or 7,500 if you do mostly highway driving without stop and go traffic. Most cars should go by the 3,750 schedule.

tire rotations should be every 7,500 miles. Brakes should be checked when the tires are rotated.

the major service on the 4 cylinder is every 30,000 miles. that includes the tune-up items of replacing spark plugs, adjusting the valves, replacing the air filter, transmission fluid, interior cabin filter and the inspections and adjustments.

the 6 cylinder does not need the valve adjustment or spark plug replacement until 105,000 miles. otherwise, the fluids and filter replacements are every 30k.

the timing belt on both the 4 cyl and the 6 cyl is 105,000. at that time the water pump and coolant are also replaced as well as the other accessory drive belts.

Brake fluid should be replaced every 3 years or 45,000 miles.

I have a 2003 Honda Odyssey with 20K miles. Some external belts are cracked and the dealership is recommending changing the timing belt, water pump, etc. Thoughts.


2003 ?? then yes its advisable to change the lot regardles of mileage ,the water pump iam not so sure about its just that its driven by the timing belt and if it goes wrong and leaks its big job to change ,but if vehicle has had antifreeze in it from new then i wouldnt bother ,yes i would wiggle the drive shaft whilst belt is off and if no play then leave it alone but you know the dealers ,someone has to pay the suited and booted sales staff with their gelled up hair and the secretarys make up and new clothes

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
