Question about 2006 Honda Odyssey

5 Answers

1999 Honda Odysessy engine suddenly stops when driving. After pulling over and putting in park, it starts immediately. Then in runs well until it happens again. This is a very sproadic problem. It happened about once a month starting in March but now seems to happen about every week. It has 169,000 miles on it and is driven daily anywhere from 25 to 50 miles. Otherwise the car runs well, idles smoothly and has adequate pickup.

    It does not seem to be a heat issue. It can happen anytime and is sporadic. The odd thing for me is that it always immediatly r3estarts and runs fine. I initially thought fuel filter but unfortunately the fuel filter is with the pump in the tank. I also don't think a fuel pump would cause it to die and them immediately crank. There is no warning before and it runs fine except when it quits.

    I took it and had it scanned and no results showed.

    I had the car scanned as recommended and there were no results. There is no codes showing or lights on the dash. As noted earlier, the car runs fine with the exception of this sudden stopping problem. It is intermittent but my girlfriend drives the car and she weighs 100 lbs soaking wet and can barely control the car when it quits and has no power steering.

    I had it scanned at AutoZone. They could not find any codes. Do I need to carry it in to a shop or is the scan valid?

    Please take it to a mechanic or an auto parts store and have them read the trouble codes that it is throwing out so that they can determine the exact problem. Possibly the crankshaft senor, camshaft sensor, or ECM is the culprit but I recommend getting those codes read first and then we can accurately determine the problem and find a solution.

    Well, then I think it is possibly one of the above problems that I posted which might not show up on a scan. Take it to a dealer is my recommendation otherwise, maybe you have a short which might be due to frayed wires but from here I can't do much more. I am sorry that I can't be more help.
    Thank You!

    For the heavyweight.
    There is an external fuel filter on the firewall or in the frame around the middle of the vehicle.and insde the frame rail, Not positive but darn sure of it having one. It is a service item and has to be accessible. Good Luck It will be on the fuel line, metal. Follow the fuel line and you will see it. The thing in and with the pump is a screen, not a filter. Good luck

    There are really only tow things that can cause this problem, one is loss of fuel to the engine, the other is loss of spark to the spark plugs, the loss of spark is the most common in a situation like u have, fuel pumps seldom act like this, they either run or don't run in most case I have seen in my 40 years of being a dealer technician, have u had the electronic control system for the engine scanned for trouble codes? if not do so, it is my best guess that a trouble code will show up for the ignition system and the problem will turn out to be either a ignition control module or a crankshaft position sensor or camshaft position sensor, but until the Scan test is run to identify the system faults we are at best making an educated guess, and Honda parts are very expensive, so have ethe tests run and get the codes back to me at this same posting, don't open another premium post, u can also contact me with the trouble code info at my mail yadawho@astound.net

    MOST RECENT COMMENT FROM OWNER (Tuesday June 8)

    I took the car to a mechanic (a large Midwestern chain) and he told me
    that unless the problem presents itself while they have the car, they are unlikely to find it . Since no dash light is on nor
    did the scan reveal any problems it seems a waste of money to have
    them analyze the car. The owner told me as much. He said that usually
    the problem has to worsen or show up in a scan before it can be
    addressed.

    I am very frustrated as you could imagine. Does anyone have any
    suggestions that I could carry out myself? I have an array of tools including a voltmeter.

Consult your local service center, however check first the electrical wiring connection for any lose contact specially the sockets, battery terminals, and etc. what are the warning lights come-up? check maybe your anti theft is malfunctioning. check all oil level . ( brakes, engine oil, and transmission oil.)

2006 Honda Element engine sputter


Temp.gauge really has nothing to do with the perfomance of the engine. If the car has been unused for a few hours, the engine oil etc settles down. It is good idea to let it run after a cold start so the oil circulates in the engine. Keep in mind it's a 1996 model and needs more care. Keep servicing regularly.

I had the same problem on my 1999 Honda Accord 4 cyl. It was the ignition switch. I received a letter from Honda regarding a recall on the ignition switch and had it replaced. 3 years after replacement it would turn off again & this time I purchased part from eBaby & replaced it myself. It hasn’t stalled since.

Car running fine. Has 160K miles. Just cuts out for no reason. Pull over starts immediately first time and off we go. Gas filter clogged? The only code P1457 was for a vapor leak. We reset that and now...


does it cut out while driving?? If it cuts out while driving does the speedometer drop to zero even if the car is moving?? try shaking the key while the engine is started and the vehicle is in park...car should die?? If yes is your answer to any of these questions, its a faulty ignition switch. There is a recall for this, call your honda dealer for info and possible replacement!! hopefully this helps

Replace the ignition switch. Honda had a recall on this, but my experience is that the new ones will fail too with age.

i think there was a re call for this car & there was a problem with ignition switch. i was searching on other forums for the fix. i got a fix that there is a problem with ignition switch. so just try & replace ignition switch which would not cost u more than $100. Try it & post if your problem is fixed. Also if u have any othr solution then also fix this problem.
