Question about 2005 Honda Odyssey
In response to clarification request...The sound usually starts after the car has been running for a while usually about 2 miles or more. It does not do it all the time. It is a higher pitch sound. (like when you don't shift in a manual transmission on time). Haven't heard while in reverse. And happens when driving slow and fast.
IT sounds like the whining can be comming from gears that are not being well lubricated, especially when the sound increases as the car warms up.
You will need to check the fluid level for your transmission. Make sure it is adequate for this model (you may need to reference the owner's manual).
I'm not sure if this van has a differential in a place where you can check it. Bad news, you may need to visit a Honda dealer. Try to get them to diagnose the problem, then tell them you don't want it fixed. Most shops will diagnose for free, some will charge you the labor time for a minimum of 1 hour.
sorry not better news...
