Question about 2000 Honda Odyssey
In the past few weeks I have been unable to drive my 2000 Honda Odyssey because of, what I believe to be, a transmission related issue. Recently when I last driving it I was going approximately 30 miles per hour on a local road when the tachometer rose to 3,000 rpm and the vehicle "revved up" like if it had shifted into Neutral. For a few seconds I was unable to control the acceleration of the vehicle, until it finally "kicked in" to the right gear and I was able to continue. I am currently afraid to drive it. This is a rebuilt transmission from Honda with approximately 40,000 miles on it. Could this be a selonoid problem? Could it be a wiring problem? Or does this sound like I need a new transmission. I understand that Honda has had transmission problems with their 2000 Odysseys' and quite frankly I would never buy another Honda vehicle again EVER. In the meantime, is their anybody who can guide me towards the answer to this problem as it is an important asset to my family.

SOURCE: p0740 code on 2000 Honda Odyssey
Code p0740 is a problem in lock up control solenoid assembly, Check whether scan tool indicates another code. Does the scan tool indicate another code? YES - Perform the Troubleshooting Flowchart for the indicated Code(s). Do not continue with this troubleshooting until the causes of any other DTCs have been corrected. Measure the line pressure. Is the line pressure within the service limit? Repair the hydraulic system as necessary. Replace the Lock-up Control Solenoid Assembly set lock-up control solenoid valve/shift control solenoid valve A assembly and the A/T clutch pressure control solenoid valve A/B assembly. Turn the ignition switch OFF, and reset the PCM memory by removing the BACK UP fuse in the passenger's under-dash fuse/relay box for more than 10 seconds . Using the scan tool, check to be sure that the engine coolant temperature is 176°F (80°C) or above . Drive the vehicle at 55 mph (88 km/h) for more than one minute . Recheck for code P0740. Does the OBD II scan tool indicate code P0740? YES - Remove the torque converter and inspect for a missing torque converter O-ring. If the O-ring is damaged or missing, replace the transmission and torque converter. NO - The system is OK at this time.

There is a break in period on new transmissions, however it should not be shifting like you described. Shifting is controlled by sensors and solenoids, it is the clutch disks and friction plates that need to be broken in. A number of things could cause a transmission to act like this. You should have them do a whole system scan and find out if there are any faults. It there are, correct them before you damage the transmission.
If it were normal for a car to shift poorly with a new transmission, Honda would never sell any new cars.
Check fluid level and color - If it is burned, take it back immediately.

Generally the symptoms say the catalytic converter is clogged, you can't get any air out so you can't pull any air in, and the age of the vehicle says so too. Look and see if it has ever been replaced.
