Question about Honda Odyssey

1 Answer

2004 Odyssey when I get to 30 mph, it feels like the transmission tries to shift and makes a hesitation and banging sound. I was told this could be a 1) computer shifting or a true mechanical issue with the transmission issue. Sound familiar to anyone? Any thoughts/suggestions?

SOURCE: Transmission

Hi. I am the owner of a 2007 camry LE. And let me tell you, i still experience the same behaviors with my car as well. The erratic 30-40 mph shifting is either up or downshifting due to the innovation of the ECT-i (Electronic Controlled Transmission with intelligence) meaning the car has two ECUs, one for the engine and one solely for the transmission. Altough the engine recognizes the car is going at these speeds, the transm. keeps the highest gear (5th for 4 cyl engines, 6th for the V6 engine) at low revs, ergo, producing the rumbling vibration you hate the most. Mine has 40,000mi and never took it to a dealership, it is not as bad as it was at the begining. The Cruise Control situation, i have the same problem and is not gonna change, due to the same ECUs situation, both of them conflicting wether it is fast or slow, rich or lean, up or downshift, until they get a program solution. All i do is: engage cruise ctrl while on straightways and disengage when coming to an uphill. Other than that, I think is the best investment I've ever made. Just ordered a set of wheels for it this week. Hope this will help.

SOURCE: Transmission slipping or stalling around 45 mph and down shifts

if fluid isn't burned, shifts aren't slipping or flairing and you did not find a large amount of debris in the pan, chances are that the electronic shift control is malfunctioning. Have someone check it out.

SOURCE: The transmission seems to hesitate or slip at

Common on the Jeep Liberty, make sure you do a trans. service and use the proper transmission fluid.

SOURCE: 2004 GMC sierra 5.3 eng 1500 transmission shutter 40-55 mph

I too have that problem. I own a 2005 GMC Yukon. Shutters between 40 + 55 mph. I thought for sure the stumble I felt was a plug or coil pack because it only does it under a load. With A/C on the whole truck shakes! But it wasnt the plugs or coil packs. Answers anyone?

Why does my 2006 Pontiac Montana feel like it kicks at 20-40 mph? - insert more words for faster question answering-

sounds like a bad motor or transmission mount try to step on the gas hard and release it quickly while in park do you feel the same thing if you do a motor mount is no good you'll see the engine twisting or raising up on one side the reason why I think its happening at slow speed is the transmission shifts gears and this lets the motor settle back down if not try with no body behind you quick acceleration then wait 5 seconds and hard stop when the car is stopped and you feel a bang from underneath the transmission mount is no good

Transmission shifts hard

You don't give me much information to work with. However, 1st, look at the engine mounts. You may have a broken mount. This will make it feel like the transmission is shifting hard. Other than that, there is only a few things that will cause this. The speed sensor tells the computer when to shift the shift solenoids. It may not be "seeing" a quality signal. If this is the case, the speedometer will be bouncing too. Last idea is that it is skipping a gear. Starts in 1st, should go to 2nd at about 10 MPH. 3rd at 25 to 30 MPH. And, if you have a Overdrive transmission, it should go into overdrive at around 45 to 55 MPH. If it is skipping 2nd, it will engage 3rd at a high engine speed, and will feel like a sudden slam into gear. If this is true, your transmission needs some work. Hope this all helps. Good Luck.

Sounds like your transmission is on the way out. Google "transmission problem 2004 Odyssey" and you will know the deal on your transmission. Lots of early 2000 model honda V6 transmissions had lots of problems.

Car sounds like its not shifting once I hit 30 mph.

85k is not high mileage. once you reach where it won't shift try letting go of the gas pedal completely for about 2 seconds and then push again and see if that makes it change. you may want to try to slip stop in your transmission. well if letting go of the gas pedal works you may have a problem with your modulator and i can tell you that's not cheap to fix

I have a 2002 Grand Am. Got the transmission checked and was told it's fine. It does not put out any codes and oil looked fine also. Around 3rd gear it feels to shift early. When I give it gas, it seems...

if your driving it normal your shift points should be from 1st to 2nd=18 to 22 mph
2nd to 3rd=28 to 32mph
3rd to od=48 to 50mph
these all change by how much throttle pressure is being use,
are you sure it's not fuel filter or plugs and wire surge your feeling
