I just took my Ody to a mechanic that I have going to for about 10 years and he said that my 04 Ody has a code of P1607. I have been hesitant to take it to the dealer, because i have read to reset the codes and see if it will do the trick. My Ody has 104k miles and I would love to keep it until 200k.
Also, I have had to jump it off 3 times in the past two weeks and I wonder if this is due to the fact that one of the battery terminals was corroded at one time. I cleaned it twice within the past 6 months and I have noticed that the clamp doesn't fit as tight as before when it was originally purchased. Could this be the cause of the code (P1607) or are they not related at all.
Finally, when taking a trip to the beach about two weeks ago my Ody started to rev real crazy. the RPM's went from normal to the tip of red and I was not pressing the accelerator. Pulled it over and checked all the fluid levels and they were fine. I thought it was the transmission, but the fluid level was fine. I also noticed that there was some black smoke and oil on the left side of the engine. After talking to a few people, they all stated that it was the A/C and that the seal broke and that it needed to be replaced.
Back to the code (P1607) and my mechanic who told me just a few hours ago that the A/C was fine and that the battery was good and with all this info, I am confused. the reason for my confusion is that he told me that the ECM could cause the engine or A/C to throw oil or even cause it to have to be jumped. He said that when you run the codes then the A/C, battery and alternator codes should come up if something was wrong with any those three things. he finally said that I needed to get it to the dealer soon before I were to have any more problems.
Could someone answer one or all of my questions if possible?
