Transmission problem with 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.

SOURCE: 1998 honda accord rebuilt transmission

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.

SOURCE: my prelude wiil not accelerate past 30 to 40 miles per hour

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.

This is a well known issue for Odysseys from 2000 thru 2003. Honda improved the transmission in 2004. Basically, you need to make a decision. Trade in your vehicle while you can still drive it, or have the transmission rebuilt (or replaced) by a reputable shop; preferably before it leaves you stranded with an expensive tow charge. The transmission will eventually slip so badly that the car will not be drivable. I have a 2002 Odyssey that had exactly the same symptoms and I barely got it to the trans. shop in time.

Honda 2000 odyssey the shifter is in park, but


The gear range switch on the back of the transmission is either bad or out of adjustment. To adjust, try removing the switch and put it in the neutral position (it should click into this spot). Then put the transmission in neutral and reinstall the switch being careful not to let the switch turn at all during re-install. There is a few degrees of adjustment available by turning the switch in either direction as well if it is still off. The car should only start in park or neutral and the reverse lights should only come on when in reverse.

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

Where to put in transmission fluid on my 2000 Honda Odyssey


You have a choice! You can use a small funnel and a narrow tube and try to fill through the dipstick tube hole or you can locate the actual fill plug and remove it to gain access to the fill hole. The plug looks like the top of a large bolt and is located on the top of the transmission aft of where the dipstick tube goes in. You will need a long funnel with a narrow opening or a tube to deliver the fluid into the hole.

2001 Honda Odyssey Transmission Problem


The Odyssey has notorious bad transmissions from 2000-2003. You will not get anything on a trade, the trans can be fixed for about $2k. If everything else on the van still works and you like it, figure you bought it again for $2k. I changen my wife's Odyssey trans at 175K miles for $2k and she is happy so therefore I am happy too :-)
