2002 Honda Odyssey idle humming sound

Hi experts,
I have 107k miles on my 2002 odyssey. I 1st noticed the humming noise 6 months ago or so. I had 2 local mechanics check that and they were'nt sure what is it.
More info:
The minivan had a timing belt change ever since but the noise did not go away.
It is not loud and it is most audible at idle, getting weaker as you accelerate RPM.
It comes from the right side of the enginem where the belts are.
The "humming" frequency is about 2-3 times a second.
The van runs OK, I just want to prevent a potential engine damage.
Anyone experienced something similar?

SOURCE: 2003 Honda Odyssey Brake light replacement

open the rear hatch. Between the tail light housing and the rear hatch opening there is a trim strip with two flush fitted flap doors. Insert a small straight blade screwdriver into the small slot on the tail light side of the flap. Pry gently inboard and the small flap will open (the hinge side of the flap is on the side of the rear hatch opening.) Now you can remove the screws that hold the tail lamp assembly in place. Finally, there is still a "spear point" clip that fits into a socket near the front outboard corner of the assembly. Gently pry with a tape wrapped screwdriver (avoids scratches) and force the assembly straight back. The clip should release and free the assembly so you can change the bulb(s).

SOURCE: 2007 honda odyssey oil change and

Have supplies ready(long stem funnel to reachfill hole, 4 qts honda genuine atf-z1, rags for drips)
1. First, park the car while its hot on a flat surface and turn the engine off. Locate the yellow transmission dipstick and remove it and wipe it clean.
2. Look for the the ATF fill plug and washer(below and to the left of the brake fluid reservoir) 17mm marked "ATF" and remove it.
3. Locate the drain plug(not the one on pointing towards the drivers front tire but its located on on the drivers side of the transmission pointing towards the passengers side and lying horizontally) and remove it along with the washer. Its blue and is a standard 3/8 square drive plug and remove it. Drain completely. (wait 15 min or so until ALL is gone and replace the plug after throughly cleaning the magnet that is attached to it).
5. Replace atf fluid(honda says 3.3 qts- but mine took 3.8 to bring to first hole in dipstick level-check while running(use honda z-1 fluid only-yes- its expensive).
6. Replace fill bolt and washer and tighten.
7. Replace dipstick, let engine get hot and recheck. Recheck again after driving a day or so.
Your done-good work, you saved a $100 dollars...

It can be changed for every 60000 miles..

now remove the spark plug covers and remove the spark plug coils too 10mm head bolt you will need a 5/8 spark plug socket and a 3/8 ratchet and a 3/8's extension too

I had 2000 Honda Odyssey mini van. I baught last 3 months ago from Japan. I changed engine oil, gear oil, filters & battery . When ever I starts up engine, I wait for a few minutes for warming up. Than...

Your idle air control motor or valve may be faulty. Or the throttle position sensor may be out of whack, out of range. It sounds like a high idle problem, not a problem in the gearbox. Have the engine computer scanned for any trouble codes.
Good luck.

2002 Honda Odyssey A/C Heater Blower making noise when running. Took to a mechanic removed and cleaned the blower and replaced polen filter. After 2 weeks blower sometimes stopped and then will work again....

I would take it back to that same mechanic to see if he didn't fully tighten the connector or maybe there is some other problem that he didn't notice or maybe even caused. It is likely that the blower motor connector is just loose.

Hi,welcome to fix ya.
this sounds like the front rotors are warped this is a very common problem on Honda cars . Honda recommends machining the rotors on the car to prevent this. using a machine called an "on car brake lathe" if your rotors were not machined this way try to find someone that can do this for you.
