Question about 2001 Honda Odyssey
My 2001 Honda Odyssey would completely lose power, foot on the gas pedal and nothing there. There were no warning lights prior to the losing power. After letting the car set for a few minutes it would start and run okay. This happened intermittently over a couple of weeks until finally it didn't want to start at all. When turning the key the car sounded like it wanted to start but wouldn't. After a quick trip to the closest Honda dealership and asking a few questions we were told that it sounded like the main relay needed to be replaced. They showed us where it was located on the Honda, we bought a new one and we easily installed it ourselves. The old relay did have a slight burned smell. My Honda is working fine now and it has been over a week with no problems. I hope this helps someone else.

One major reason for this kind of problem is filling the gas-tank too much. I suspect over-filling the gas tank in your case.
Driving within the highway speeds increase the amount of pressure created in the gas tank, which would likely result in leakage. Over-filling the gas tank should be avoided at all times, because each time the specification is exceeded, the system would not be able to handle it. So it is very likely to experience some leakage under this cirumstance.
On this car, the gas tank is located under the second row seat covered by the carpet. It could help to give the gas tank a good check to see if perhaps the fuel-pump gasket needs replacing. Another reason to check up the fuel-pump area is to make sure that no major damage had occured in the gas tank area with the previous owner that was not properly fixed. To get to the fuel-pump:
a. Start the engine.
b. Relieve the fuel pressure in the system by pulling out the fuel pump fuse. The fuse for the fuel pump is located in a box under the left side of the dash. Once the fuel pump fuse is pulled out, the engine stops, and the pressure is relieved. Turn off key in the ignition.
c. Open the hood and remove the negative terminal of the battery.
d. Take out the second row seats by activating the levers under them. Then pull back the carpets also from the second row seating area..
e. Remove the four screws holding the access cover of the fuel-pump. And then remove the electrical plug on fuel pump's sending unit.
f. Use a large pliers with rags to loosen the plastic lock-nut. Or consider a special loaner tool from a reputable autoparts store.
g. Disconnect the fuel-line hoses, noting their previous installed positions.
h. Take out the fuel-pump. Check the seals for cracks, distortions, etc.
NOTE: When returning back the fuel-pump seal, the seal must go in the hole first.(This method lets the seal avoid getting pinched or distorted). Then gently lower the fuel-pump assembly into its hole.
i. Reconnect the fuel-pump electrical connector; reconnect the fuel-pump fuse and the negative battery terminal, return back the second row seats and the carpets. Start the engine, and look for fuel leak.

Yikes! The transmission has gotten a lot of complaints, but $3500 sounds high. You should be able to find a used one for about $1200, Power steering is no big deal, unless you were in a wreck, and the front end alignment is $75. So somebody is wanting your wallet and your kids and your dog. I would get a second opinion on all that. The van isn't that old. And 140,000 miles, it is just getting broke in. I have 250,000 miles on my rodeo, and the tranny just quit. I got a whole truck for parts with tranny for $400. Took out the tranny, and a bunch of parts, and sold a bunch of parts, and then sold the truck for $400! Not bad. Hope this helps.

My Honda Odyssey 2001 transmission died last week. I had the car towed to a Honda Dealer. After giving my VIN # to the dealer, they replaced my transmission at no cost because it fell within the 7 year, 100 K mile extended warranty Honda was giving due to the class action suit on Honda Odyssey transmissions of the specified years 1999-2003 I believe. I paid nothing and I have a new transmission!
