  1. Catalytic converter stolen - DIY replacement possible?

    1999 - 2004 Odyssey
    Just an update: I couldn't find the right 3-pointed flange to fit the cat so ended up going to a muffler shop which charged $150 in labor to weld cat, install both O2 sensors and change a loose part from the front exhaust. CEL is now gone and the car sounds even quieter. One comment on the O2...
  2. Catalytic converter stolen - DIY replacement possible?

    1999 - 2004 Odyssey
    Yes, the secondary one that is in the catalytic converter. I think the primary is still there but need to double check.
  3. 2001 Odyssey Catalytic Converter Replacement

    1999 - 2004 Odyssey
    Hi @kknh3 ! I was curious how the Walker 16457 is performing so far? My catalytic converter was stolen and I'm thinking of installing the same part as yours if it's long-term reliable. OEM price is too high, especially compared to the car's market price. Thanks!
  4. Best way to install Caliper Piston Boot/Seal

    Periodic Maintenance
    Just want to share this video with the best method to install the brake caliper piston boot. Basically lubricate generously with Sil-Glyde before putting into the caliper. I endorse this method. It took me 3 minutes to install it, way faster and cleaner than other methods that involve tucking...
  5. Help with PS High Pressure Hose

    1999 - 2004 Odyssey
    Yeah, that was my initial thought as well but it matched exactly to the one my local Honda dealer had on stock, so I concluded it was in fact OEM. Thanks for the comment. I'm not too familiar in analyzing engine mounts but they look reasonable at a first glance (pics below) and I don't feel...
  6. Power Steering Leak

    1999 - 2004 Odyssey
    Thanks cahaak! I was finally able to install the new hose after swallowing my pride and asking someone to help feed the hose from the top. I installed the pressure switch after the hose was in place but not as tight as it was originally. No leaks so far but I'll keep an eye on it.
  7. Help with PS High Pressure Hose

    1999 - 2004 Odyssey
    Thanks everyone for the help! I ended up taking the new part to a dealership and after comparing with theirs, I could conclude it was actually a Genuine Honda (and not a counterfeit). So I couldn't use it as a scapegoat anymore and had to deal with my skills (or lack thereof). šŸ˜… And I finally...
  8. Power Steering Leak

    1999 - 2004 Odyssey
    I'm trying to install the new hose into the car and I'm having a hard time. Did you install it by feeding from the top of the car or from the passenger side wheel well? And did you use an OEM part? If so, did it match exactly like the one from the vehicle? I got a Genuine Honda but it's not...
  9. Help with PS High Pressure Hose

    1999 - 2004 Odyssey
    Hello! I'm replacing the power steering high pressure hose for the first time for my '03 Odyssey EX-L (185K miles) due to a leakage. I have two questions: 1) I bought the Genuine Honda part 53713-S0X-A02 from Amazon but the angles in the metal part are different from the original hose in the...
  10. Brakes pulsating and weird spots on left rotors only

    1999 - 2004 Odyssey
    Hello all! I changed the front & rear brake rotors and pads on my 03 Odyssey (185K miles) with a new Nakamoto kit bought at 1aauto.com. They were working fine in the beginning but after several months, the car and brake pedal started shaking/pulsating whenever I pressed the brake pedal even at...
  11. 03 Odyssey EX-L - Help with Timing Belt Tensioner

    1999 - 2004 Odyssey
    Hi Brad, I recorded a video with the engine sound when the tensioner isn't working properly. After taking out the cover, you can even see the belt flopping around. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R4lYhh6egAM&feature=youtu.be I recently did a full timing belt service (belt, tensioner, water...
  12. 03 Honda Odyssey - Help find the problem [video]

    1999 - 2004 Odyssey
    Thank you all for your help! It has 180,000 miles (I'm its second owner) and I believe it had its timing belt serviced at the 100,000 mile mark. I ended up going to the dealership even though it's pricier (I was able to get a discount) as I want to have the peace of mind that it was done with...
  13. 03 Honda Odyssey - Help find the problem [video]

    1999 - 2004 Odyssey
    Thank you, appreciate the help! It was pretty loud even with the covers but only without it I could see the timing belt flopping. I have barely used the car once the sounds started and was planning to replace the timing belt tensioner myself (without changing the whole timing belt set) but...
  14. 03 Honda Odyssey - Help find the problem [video]

    1999 - 2004 Odyssey
    Hi, My 03 Honda Odyssey makes a loud, clicking sound that comes from the engine on the passenger side. The sound doesn't go away even when the engine gets into operating temperature. I have recorded a video of the engine with the sound on Youtube but can't post the link here. You can search...
  15. 03 Odyssey EX-L - Help with Timing Belt Tensioner

    1999 - 2004 Odyssey
    Hello! I'm struggling to remove and replace the timing belt tensioner. I have a '03 Honda Odyssey EX-L that started making a clicking sound on the passenger side of the engine. After research, it is likely due to an aged timing belt tensioner and I'm trying to replace it without replacing all...
