Slipping Trans - 2002 Honda Odyssey

In the last day or so the transmission has been slow to engage when putting the van into gear (both reverse or drive). It also seemed to be slipping today during gear shifts. The fluid is at the correct level, but might have a burnt smell. Anything else I can do at home or do I need to go see the "guy"?

Thanks.

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.

I have a 91 honda accord with an automatic trans. & when i shift into reverse it refuses to engage & makes a high pitch gear slipping grinding sound ! NOT GOOD ! ,I just replaced the transmission con


Definitely not good. The transmission is slipping internally due to worn gears and clutch packs. It will have to come out for rebuilding, IMO. Have a transmission shop check it out.
Good luck.

2001 Odyssey transmission is slipping. even at 65 mph. Had it flushed but to no avail. Sometimes the gear indicator light will blink in Drive and it stops slipping but has almost no acceleration from...


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.

I bought a 2001 honda odessey with 73000 miles the transmission gave up. i have it rebuild now it is 83000 miles transmission starting to slip


No transaxles make 100,000 miles

What your saying, including the rebuild
is common

Asian transaxles & all Van type vehicles,
are something you don't want to own

I used to own a trans shop,so I will leave
you with that

Can't fix slipping,drive a couple of days,
& your pulling the trans out again

My 2002 chevrolet 2500hd 4 wheel drive will not engage. Light does not come on. Worked last winter. Transmission was rebuilt last summer. After about a month, I heard a loud kerplunk. It was real cold here...


I would check the wire harnesses for damage (pinching, cuts and such) from the transfer case. There may be damage from the trans install. Also fuse panels both under hood and interior. Since no lights are on it is probably a fuse or the harness is disconnected.

Transmission Fluid explodes out under hood.


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.

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 :-)
