Re: change oil transmission , fuel filter
The transmission fluid is drained by removing the drain plug.The drain plug is gold in color,and a square drive,3/8" hand ratchet fits the plug perfectly.The trans is drain and fill only,the filter is only accessable when rebuilding,as it is internal in the trans.When refilling,add 3 quarts of Dexron3 or Honda ATF.Fire the engine,let run for a few minutes,turn engine off,anf check level with engine off.Add until full on the stick.
Speedometer quits working and D4 light flashes on 1995 Honda Odyssey. The Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) is bad. You will need a replacement ($39 online) sensor, Ratchet with extra long extension, 10 mm socket w/ swivel, a long flexible wand with a magnet on the end, and a flashlight. Unplug the wire from the old VSS. Remove the two mounting bolts. Lift out the old VSS and the drive key. Put a small amount of grease on the new drive key and insert it into the new VSS. Plug the wire into the new VSS and use the wire to lower the VSS into place aligning it with the two mounting holes. Use the magnet wand to lower the bolts into the holes and turn to just get the bolts started. VSS IS FLUSH WITH THE TRANSMISSION BEFORE TIGHTENING THE BOLTS. You are now finished. You can access the VSS from the top of the engine in your garage/driveway. It is located on the top/backside of the transmission, just below the air cleaner hose. Best done in the morning when the engine is cold unless you like getting burns on your forearms. Good luck!
The same filer bottle is used for front and back on the 95 ody,try cleaning out the jet itself on the back with a needle and alchohol solution,(bottom Right Corner in Engine Bay-blue lid next 2 raddy for the filler bottle) cos as u have probably noticed they pick up alot of road grunge on the square backs. failing that check your pipe is not jammed up in the rear door,or if it is making no pump noise when cleaning ,get it replaced,should find one cheap in a scrappy,check it against other honda models,probablly the same or similar,either way if it fits in and works,job done. Good luck--regards motoring homy

If you are referring to an automatic transmission, most manufacturers no longer put a drain plug on them. This is to prevent removal of the wrong plug when changing the engine oil. Also, since manufacturers recommend changing the transmission filter when the transmission oil is changed, having to remove the pan to drain the oil is incentive to replace the filter at the same time.
My understanding is that it is inside the transmission. You drain the fluid (hopefully there is a drain plug) and remove an access cover plate, or more likely, the transmission's bottom cover to access the filter. If no drain plug, oil will "self-remove" when you loosen the cover - be sure you have a large drip pan with at least a gallon capacity or lots of oil absorbent (kitty litter works well!).

For a 2003 used Honda odyssey, the following should be required:-
1. Replace the timing belt. (repair estimates at www.repairpal.com) 2. Drain the whole oil out of the engine and transmission 3. Replace the brake pads 4. Most of all run a diagnosis scan on the vehicle to detect any other possible maintenance that will be required.
to replace the oil on your transmission is not that hard but as a auto technician I should advice you that if on any vehicle the transmission oil has never been changed and is a high millage vehicle by changing the oil the transmission can slip or go neutral you should take your vehicle to a transmission shop and have the oil changed there with special oil changing machine that would clean the transmission and converter while it replaces the old oil and if there's a risk on damaging the transmission then they will tell you before changing the oil on your transmission and if they change the oil and any problems should happen then they are responsible for your transmission but if you insist to change it your self by removing the oil pan on the transmission you let all the oil out some of these Japanese vehicles have a drain plug you can take the brain plug out then remove the oil pan once you remove the oil pan then you'll see the transmission filter with socket wrench using a 10 mm socket remove the filter and the same way replace it with the new filter don't over tork the screws tighten to 15 lb. then remove the old oil pan gasket and make sure by doing all this process everything is extra clean, clean out oil pan and replace gasket and install oil pan then after you finish pour in 3 qt. of good quality transmission oil then turn on engine and take the shifter to R then D and last N and with engine on check the level and add as needed good luck
I would not recommend using Dexron III. Honda Odysseys are prone to transmission problems. A drain and fill with Genuine Honda Fluid is Recommended. The drain plug can be removed with a 3/8 ratchet at the bottom of the trans. The fill hole is at the top of the trans. You remove it with a socket on a long extension. The capacity is close to 3 quarts
