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.

SOURCE: Inside the cabin strong gas smell after fill up

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.

SOURCE: 2001 Honda Odysse~140,000 miles, transmission problems

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.

SOURCE: 2001 Honda Odyssey Transmission Problem

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!

SOURCE: 1999 Honda Odyssey engine stops when driving.

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

Honda Odyssey engine suddenly dies while driving on HWY

This problem may take sometime to find. Please write back with specific vehicle information (year,engine size, mileage, maintenance history, recent repairs and anything else you can think of. A few suggestions to get started. The usual rule of thumb is if there is a drivability issue and the engine light is off then it is mechanical. Check the fuses and relays. Look for loose connections (fuses and relays should slide in with firm pressure). Also look for any signs of over heating. Inspect the fuses and relays for melted spots and corrosion. Check the performance of the ignition switch. It may be worn and loosing contact with related parts, affecting performance. It could be the fuel pump too. There are other suggestions but the other failures should turn the engine light on. I hope this helps but I would like to hear back from you. I feel like I could help more, if I knew more about your problem. Good luck.

Code P1298 on 2001 honda odyssey

. Fuse number 15 in the under dash fuse box will be blown when you check it. This is caused by a shorted wire up under the intake manifold. HERE is some information on this and how to fix the problem. Once this is repaired your speedometer should work properly again. You may need to have the fault codes cleared after the repairs or just ignore the check engine light until it resets on its own which may take awhile.good luck

Hello what's p 1768 hello i have ask my

The code refers to a fault with the torque convertor clutch. Make sure your transmission fluid is at the right level if the error code persists then have specialist check the transmission. The stalling symptoms you describe could also point to another error. Have a look at the PCB of the main relay. Sometimes with Hondas the solder round one of the relay pins cracks in a circle. Often when used a connection appears good but a jolt or increase in temperature can cause a disconnection and engine shut down. If you see a cracked joint just resolder it.

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 :-)
