Question about 1996 Honda Odyssey
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.

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 :-)

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,

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

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.
