Question about 2005 Honda Odyssey

1 Answer

I am in the middle of replacing the timing belt on a 05 honda odyssey touring, before removing the old belt, the manual is saying to turn the crankshaft pulley to its white mark [which i can see] lines up with the pointer [B] on the engine block [ which i can also see], the manual also says to set the No. 1 piston at top dead center TDC by aligning the pointer on the front cover with the No.1 piston on the front camshaft pulley, the problem is as of now with the old belt still in place, when i turn the crankshaft pulley to line up with the white mark, the No.1 piston is not at TDC, and when i rotate and get No.1 piston and get it to TDC the crankshaft pulley shifts from the white mark and is not lined up, AM I MISSING SOMETHING, i thought that at least the markings should be lined up even before i start replacing the belt, by the way the vehicle mileage is 110k thats why i am replacing the belt, please help

Remember that for every rotation of the cam there two rotations of the crank. Rotate the crank a further 360 and bring the piston to TDC and the white mark should now align on the cam.

Pricing on a timing belt for a 2004 odyssey

If you're asking for pricing on parts and labor, it's a approximately $500 to $600. BUT remember, it's still a small price to pay when replacing the timing belt before it breaks. First, your Odyssey is an interference motor(once the belt breaks, it damages your intake and exhaust valves). Secondly, you don't want to be stuck in the middle of highway and face towing charges. The cost to do the valve job and timing belt could run you in the mill of $2500 when all said and done. Hope this helps
