Question about 1996 Honda Odyssey

1 Answer

2005 Honda Odyssey revs and jerks forward. noticed it when i have driven it for a long distance; the rpm revs and the engine jerks, then the 'D' drive indicator begins to flash, what follows next is the transmission becomes sluggish and i have to put of the engine and restart the van before it picks up again. i took it to a Honda specialist who had it diagnosed. said the problem wasn't the transmission but the engine. changed three of the six coils and it appeared to have stopped. but now its back, it still revs but without being sluggish. Help, cos i am this close to trading it in for a Sienna

Hate to say it, but, it's probably the transmission. Common issue with your year model Honda. After replacing, adding an aftermarket transmission cooler tends to prolong/offset the problem.

SOURCE: 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 :-)

SOURCE: 2006 Honda Odyssey brake problems

Sounds like there is a problem with these vehicles and that Honda are aware of it, and at least some dealerships are being honest about it. Check out the forum on fixya from other Odyssey owners here.
Sorry I can't be of more help, but I can only suggest you go back to the dealership and quote this "Honda Tech Line Summary Article",
#ATS050707..."Grinding, Growling Noise from the Front Brakes - A grinding,
growling noise when applying moderate to hard pedal pressure at low speeds
is caused by the brake pad friction material. An improved material will
be announced in a forthcoming Service Bulletin."
Ask them if there has been a fix developed for this problem yet.

Hope this helps,
Mark.

Hello greypaulet,

Thank you for choosing fixya.com.

First, take your van to a mechanic or a local auto parts dealer (if drivable) and ask to have a diagnostics test done on it. The representative will let you know what codes show up, and the parts or components they represent. Chances are, you need to replace your O2 sensors; I had this problem with my van recently and replaced both my O2 sensors. My light is off, the idle is smooth, and there are no vibrations, or any shaking. If you haven't done so recently, it would be a good idea as well, to replace the spark plugs and wires; as well as the distributor cap and rotor, or coil pack if needed (if equipped in place of a distributor) Have all your belts checked as well, and replace if necessary. Also, make sure your radiator hoses are in good condition as well.

I am almost posotive however, that the O2 sensors are the culprit. It wouldn't hurt either to replace the fuel filter as well.

I hope this information is useful, and helps get your vechile running properly. Thank you again for choosing fixya.com.

The tranny fluid on most cars and trucks is 30,000 miles ,as far as the engine oil if you use a good oil brand like Honda motor oil or even like Motorcraft they are a synthectic blend 5w20 and you can go 5,000 miles between oil changes.Now if your useing regular motor oil change it every 3,000 miles.Hope that helps

SOURCE: the engine rpm's increase and decrease when in

Does your van have the V-Tec engine? If it does, you will have to take it to a dealer to get it fixed. What is happening is one or more of the solenoids under the valve cover is malfunctioning. The result is the surge in rpm's and the rough transition. You could try an indy mechanic but any mech worth his salt will tell you to take it to the dealer.

Why my honda wont let me rev it up pass 3000 rpm..


will it go over 3000 when driving. if so then when not in gear it is hitting the rev limiter, there is nothing you can do as its built into the program to keep the engine from damage when not driven.

When in park honda odyssey revs up and down between 1000 and 2000 RPMs


is the check engine light on also? it sounds like the idle air control valve is bad. this controls the idle of the vehicle. when it is stuck open it causes too much air into the engine and causes it to rev. when it gets to a set rpm, the pcm cuts fuel. then it turns the fuel back on, then the engine revs, then it cuts fuel........code p0505 will prob be set

My 2005 Honda odyssey with 96k miles whines when in drive and under load. When coasting the noise goes away. It is not there in neutral. The noise increases in pitch with speed


Sounds like differential or differential bearings as it happens under load,if it was just wheel bearings it would do it rolling down a hill even with the engine switched off, it needs to be driven by an experienced mechanic to diagnose the noise but thats probably it
