    2000 Odyssey the check engine light and TCS light

    I have a 2000 Odyssey with approx. 24,000 miles. The TCS light and check engine lights have come on two times in the past two weeks. Each time the TCS light will turn off after a while and the check engine light will stay on for approximately three days. The dealer said the code indicated "rich fuel". I am taking the car in 4/20/04 to have the problem diagnosed.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance.

    Re: 2000 Odyssey the check engine light and TCS light

    Sounds similar to the problems I had on my 2000EX.

    When the problems happens, can you make the engine rev pass 3,000 RPM? if not it's surely sound like you have a slow EGR valve for which there is a technical bulletin for.

    Best regards

    Any fix for this yet? I have the same type of problem. My dealer said it needed fuel injectors and a valve adjustment.

    The problem was the EGR valve and there was a technical bulletin for it.

    I was fortunate that the dealer covered the repair under warranty. We haven't had any other problems.

    Just a note..

    The failure that illuminates the "check engine" indicator lamp will also affect the transmission performance and therefore tripping the "TCS" indicator lamp.
    Thats why you usually have both come on somewhere around the same time.. Its usually the motor performance at fault and not the transmission..
    I'm not really a Honda Tech... I just play one on this forum..

    Now at 240,000 I don't recommend this one for loosing up carbon but tried an old time gas carburation technique from the 50's. I took the head of the hammer and gave the casting a couple of good shocks. So far today all the light flicking has stopped. If this holds up I will do an aggressive fuel cleaner for two tanks - and use Sunoco non ethanol in the process with 4 - 3o minute highway runs

    I am now on day 2 without an issue after shocking the casing of the egr valve twice with a hammer which must have freed or settled a carbon issue. Again I don't necessarily recommend this for everyone but at 240,000 I am not going to start taking everything apart for two lights giving me the same egr reading I have been getting for 210,000 miles. Best thing invest in in ODB II meter get the code and decide for yourself. If not as you will see by reading though this web sight you can chase these idiot lights for ever and day and they still wont go out and you will be out a ton money

    Interesting method, but it worked for you, whatever it fixed.
    Keep us informed.

    well its been a week and the check engine light and TCS have not appeared again, and actually the car runs better. Again for me at 240000 and with an ODBll in hand I wasn't going to start taking things apart - that just never seems go well in the end. Unless you are going to replace the EGR valve (newone) the shock treatment on the old u might try first
