Question about Honda Cars & Trucks
My Honda Odyssey stalled three times now. It will run fine for days and then stalls. When I try to start it, it sounds like the engine wants to turn over but can't quite get there. Then, after about 10 tries or so, it'll start up again. This happened when idling at the stop light, after parking for half an hour and once during driving. Naturally I'm hesitant to drive it now as I cannot know where I will be when it happens again. My mechanic experienced this once and had the car for two weeks without it happening again.He said he cannot find the problem. Any ideas what I should do?
I had this happen once on an older car. Mine was caused by a loose carburetor. I tried everything and no luck then one day I put my hand on the carburetor to brace myself as I looked at the lower engine and I felt it move.
while your car is likely EFI, you could have an air leak along the intake. Get a can of brake cleaner spray and with the engine running, spray all the connection points and if the idle suddenly slows or speeds up, you found the leak.
then just tighten the connection and try again. If it does t change, you need to change the gasket.
hopefully this helps.
