I understand that honda had lots of problem with some transmissions ... ( like you said) very unusual for honda ... a friends 2002 just went bad and we found that honda extended the warranty on some models to 109 thousand miles .. but after that they tell me you are on your own .. i would be very dissipointed if honda doesnt fix this ongoing problem .. we decided to try the transmission flush system .. thats where they run a solvent thruout the transmission and torque converter .. that would clean out any cooked on debree that sometimes cloggs things .. but a trusted mechanic said that it didnt work for long with this problem since things are coming apart inside .. the only option was to rebuild the tranny .. sad

make sure you check out any rebuilders with BBB .. there is a lot of bad reputations out there .. try to find one that gives a lifetime warranty if you are going to keep the car ..

Not much, unless the auto shop who did the work on the trans has a warranty.

I replaced EGR valve twice one infact today with dealer part but still the check engine light came on after driving my 2000 Honda odyssey van for 25 miles? any suggestions?


I had an egr code. there is a honda service bulletin out about clogged egr ports. The service bulletin involves putting some kind of sleeve in the port. I just followed the service bulletin to clean out the port, I didn't put in the sleeve or any parts. Seems to be working good for the last six months. It took a couple of hours and some gaskets for the intake manifold.

My 1999 Honda Odyssey Van has ~ 205000 miles on


I'm surprised a dealership made that mistake. Honda did start making engines to take oil until around 2003. I would go back and have them put the correct oil in the van. 5W-20 is not as thick as 5w-30, so the engine may start to make louder noises down the road. Just stick with 5w-30 for what the engine was made for.

The problem could be the torque converter itself or the sensor circuit for the clutch.
Best to have a Transmission Expert look at it to see if any further damage has occurred.

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 :-)
