I find that in most fuel injector cars this can happen if the car is not given a couple of seconds to pump enough fuel to charge the injectors properly, especially on warmer days.

Try this: The next time you test this, instead of putting in the key and turning it all the way to start in one smooth move, try moving the key to the ON position, leave it there for a couple of senconds (you should hear the fuel pump whirr for a couple of senconds, then shut off. This means it is finished charging the injectors to the right pressure) then move the key to the start position to crank. See if that helps... (it has helped me...)

Idle isolates in park but not in drive?

This is a common problem. I found a post with pictures of how to clean out the intake to correct this. Google for Honda Odyssey rough idle and you should find the solution. The fix took mean hour, but I am extremely mechanical. The problem has to do with the recirculation of warm air in the engine.

2002 odyssey injectors flooding

The owner's manual offers these tips on starting in cold weather. First, do not touch the gas pedal and crank the engine for no longer than 15 seconds. If no start, hold the gas pedal halfway down and crank for no longer than 15 seconds. If no start, hold gas pedal all the way down and crank for 15 seconds. If no start, hold gas pedal halfway down and crank for 15 seconds. During any one of the start attempts with the gas pedal part/all the way down, if the engine should start, slowly release the pedal so the engine will not race. Remember that fuel does not atomize as easily in cold weather and can be a problem.
