Question about 2005 Honda Odyssey
I have a 2005 Honda Odyssey that experienced such a problem. When at idle, the engine was a bit rough and during acceleration from a stop, the effect was like the transmission was juddering. I also noticed that the problem would show up at certain speeds that correlated with the green fuel efficiency light in the dash which meant that the engine was running on 3 cylinders.
In our case, the repair consisted of replacing the rear electronic or active motor mount. This motor mount is electronically controlled to damp the engine vibrations resulting from 3/6 cylinder switching. At around 30-60K miles these apparently can fail where some of the units even show some damage by bulging from the soft parts.
After replacement (around $700.00 total parts and labor in OC, California), the car was like new again making the pain at the repair shop less painful.
I hope this helps with your problem.

Your Odyssey has the "Immobilizer" system, that is intended to prevent someone who doesn't have your key to start your car. This system works by having a transmitter imbedded in your key and a receiver located as part of the ignition switch. The receiver picks up the signal transmitted from your key and sends it to the car's central computer. The computer is programmed to reject any signal from a key other than the one that came with your van. You have two choices: 1. Get your Odyssey to the dealer to reprogram the computer. 2. You can usually place your original key very near the key that came with the new ignition switch. This allows the receiver in the ignition switch to pick up the signal from your van's original key transmitter and send this signal to the computer. It is easy to try it.
