  1. 2000 Odyssey 232K sudden overheating issue

    1999 - 2004 Odyssey
    Just for the record, I NEVER had any overheating issues whatsoever in 232K miles. The Odyssey always ran cool even when towing my Wells Cargo 5x8 trailer. So, for me, putting in a larger radiator is not the issue I just need to repair whatever went wrong. Interesting idea though and I sure could...

    Thanks Buffalo4! All great suggestions! Bob

    Although, after I got home from driving about 18 miles, the engine / hood did not seem very hot at all. I am in the Ft Myers area of SW Florida so not much freezing here. :) Bob

    Thanks for the insights! I agree about the temp gauge. Bob
  6. 2000 Odyssey 232K sudden overheating issue

    1999 - 2004 Odyssey
    Thanks Buffalo! I only drove it home from where I was the other night. After topping off the reservoir it has seemed to retain. My mechanic also suggested the Denso. Damn, it's a lot of labor :( Bob

    Thanks Dave, I totally agree. Bob
  8. 2000 Odyssey 232K sudden overheating issue

    1999 - 2004 Odyssey
    Thanks Dave, I agree, this makes sense. I just spoke to the independent mechanic I have used for the Odyssey repairs and he quoted about $484 for the whole job. Said it's more labor than parts and I can see that it is quite buried! Bob
  9. 2000 Odyssey 232K sudden overheating issue

    1999 - 2004 Odyssey
    Hello all, I have a 2000 Odyssey that is just ready to turn 232,000 miles. This car has been one of the best I've ever owned and still runs strong and has always run cool, with the temperature gauge showing about 4 on a scale of 1-10. Yesterday after making a short run, I noticed the A/C...
  10. Anyone exceed 75K mi WITHOUT tranny failure?

    1999 - 2004 Odyssey
    2000 Ody going strong! I know this is an older post but I have a 2000 Odyssey I purchased in 2004 with 13,500 miles on it. As one might imagine it was in nearly mint condition. I drove it as a daily car for about two years service done by my local Honda dealership. Since it had a dealer...
  11. 2000 ODY - Are Starter Solenoids Available Separately?

    1999 - 2004 Odyssey
    Thanks for the reply John. I am just reading this now on 8/2/17! I ended up taking my Ody to a very honest independent mechanic who just happens to sub out a part of his building to an auto/electric guy. I was having a bit of other work done, 4 motor mounts needed to be replaced and the filter...
  12. Starter Problem?

    2005 - 2010 Odyssey
    Sorry somehow missed post with quote so re-quoted below. Thanks for the great post. Can you tell me how you worked on your Ody? Did you have it jacked up or on a lift? I am having similar issues and want to try the same things. Thank you. Original post: Thought I'd close the loop on this in...

    1999 - 2004 Odyssey
    Thanks! I just ordered them. Had heard about some type of airlift kit in the past but no one I spoke to in retail, including dealership, could ever locate anything for me.

    Where can one find the Airlift 1000 kit? Thanks, Bob

    I had my timing belt done at somewhere aroud 105K. Do you remember what the itemization was on that trans shift seal? All in all that seems a bit high on that work but I guess it depends on which area of the country you are in.
