Question about 2001 Honda Odyssey
Honda Odyssey with 101,800. Maintained religiously. Engine and TCS lights came on. TCS light went out. Engine light remains. Dealer tested and found Code P07440 - Torque converter failure, and code P0470 - Catalytic converter insufficient flow.
Any help other than complete transmission and catalytic converter (Approx $4,500)
Thanks for any help!
With regard to the Transmission, some Honda's have strict procedures to follow with their trany's.
I hope you never had it flushed by a Quick lube or something like that. Also the type of fluid is very special in some of them too so mixing them with regular ATF will cause problems. I worked for a Forein Car Specialist and know how important it is to use only the Honda recommended fluids in them. If the light went out you can reset the code and see if it returns, if it does you may want a reputable shop to professionaly flush your tranny and replace the oil with Honda recommended oil.
With regards to your Catalytic converter, unless you can hear it comming apart inside (bang on it and listen if it rattles) or if the car is running extremly rich (gas will ruin the cat) you may have a blocked or ruined muffler farther down the system which is slowing the flow through the cat.
I hope this helps.
