  1. 04 odyssey climate control

    1999 - 2004 Odyssey
    Excellent suggestion, Mark. (y)
  2. Should I hear clank when rocking van?

    2005 - 2010 Odyssey
    I've never tried rocking the van, but the noise could be gear lash in the final drive mechanism. This might work to test the engine mounts, depending on the force of the rocking I suppose. The method that most use is to start the engine, then observe engine movement when shifting to R or D...
  3. 04 odyssey climate control

    1999 - 2004 Odyssey
    First, a minor clarification: the speed of the blower with automatic CC (climate control) is controlled by a power transistor. The manual CC on the LX uses a resistor. As for the blower not working in manual mode: the CC module controls the power transistor which controls the blower. Even the...
  4. Transmission slip from D to N at stop sign in the morning

    1999 - 2004 Odyssey
    Pull the gearshift lever toward you to access the lower gear positions. It's a safety feature to prevent accidentally selecting any forward position except D. Dave
  5. 2005 Touring no crank and no start

    2005 - 2010 Odyssey
    Test for 12V at the small starter terminal when the ignition key is turned to START. If it's good, I too would strongly suspect the starter. Dave
  6. 2020 Ody - Consumer Reports - Very low rating - Should I still buy ??

    2018+ Odyssey
    Yeah probably, but wait for a year or two. Newly-redesigned models tend to have bugs that take time to discover and to work out at the manufacturing level. As for Toyota, the reliability of the newly-redesigned 2019 Rav4 dropped from much better than average to average. (Per CR, January 2020)...
  7. LED Headlamp Replacement Preferences, anybody?

    1999 - 2004 Odyssey
    Yep. There's a gear-type adjustment mechanism on the back side of the housing, in the valley between the headlight and parking light bulb sockets. Dave
  8. Honda makes serious $$$ on parts

    2005 - 2010 Odyssey
    Yeah, that just about the same as what my CDN dealer charges. Even worse, that's just the basic TB service i.e. just the belt. (That's all that's required by the preventative factory service recommendation.) Consider also replacing the water pump and tensioner. Replacing those would add...
  9. Ignition Coil Boot stuck O4' Odyssey

    1999 - 2004 Odyssey
    Dab some dielectric grease on the spark plug insulator. It will help prevent the coil from bonding to the spark plug. Dave
  10. Ignition Coil Boot stuck O4' Odyssey

    1999 - 2004 Odyssey
    Use another coil to select a deep socket that just fits over the boot. Tap it over the broken boot. Turn it out. Vacuum out the spark plug well before removing the spark plug if you suspect that any bits have broken off the coil. Dave
  11. Oil smoke, Restore additive, increase oil wt

    2005 - 2010 Odyssey
    When does the blue smoke appear? At startup? When coasting? Under heavy throttle? I agree with doing a compression test. Change to a higher oil viscosity only as a last resort. Doing so might possibly reduce oil burning, but could cause other engine problems. Fix the real problem if possible...
  12. I am new to 2nd Gen Odyssey group

    Introduce yourself
    The oil leak is probably from the valve cover gasket. If you change it, change the spark plug tube seals too. Fixing an oil leak will not fix your poor fuel mileage though. For that, I would change the spark plugs (OEM NGK only) and the two O2 sensors (OEM, or Denso or NTK from RockAuto). The...
  13. 2020 Honda Odyssey EX-L windshield

    2018+ Odyssey
    It's the camera that may need re-calibration, not the glass. Calibration should be checked, and possibly adjusted, after every windshield replacement, no matter if OEM or aftermarket glass was used. Now an aftermarket windshield being the correct one for a vehicle equipped with advanced safety...
  14. Oil Pan Replacement - What to prepare for?

    1999 - 2004 Odyssey
    True, the video says to jack up the engine "just a little bit". However, that could mean 1/4" or 6" depending on the narrator's perspective. Let's say that both agree that the engine has to be raised. I also agree with oldskewel that other engine mounts could be damaged. Other forum members...
  15. plastic box inside left front bumper

    1999 - 2004 Odyssey
    It sounds like #5 in this diagram - the air intake resonator chamber. Dave
  16. Oil filter adapter?

    1999 - 2004 Odyssey
    Quite simple really. Cut enough off the top of a 2-liter soda or juice bottle that it fits between the frame and the filter base, leaving some space for your fingers to unscrew the filter (loosen it first before inserting the bottle). The oil drippings from the loosened filter go into the...
  17. Had trailer wiring short now no power

    1999 - 2004 Odyssey
    Well, the common denominator of all those symptoms is fuse #9 10A in the driver side fuse box. If you have already replaced it, maybe it blew again? i.e. short still exists? Dave
  18. Oil Pan Replacement - What to prepare for?

    1999 - 2004 Odyssey
    See post #25 by madbusy168 in this thread in which he replaced the oil pan. Here is a summary of his steps here, although these alone don't convey the effort conveyed in the post: loosen exhaust bolts loosen front engine mount and pass side mount jack up the engine about 6-8 inches wedge the...
  19. 6 Honda Odyssey keeps turning off when I put

    2005 - 2010 Odyssey
    Two things come to mind: Dirty IAC (idle air control) valve Stuck torque converter lockup mechanism How is the idle quality in P or N? What is the idle speed (when warm)? Does it also stall when shifting to R? Is the check engine light on? Dave
  20. HELP - 08 Ody CEL Flashing

    2005 - 2010 Odyssey
    Valves out of adjustment could cause misfires alright. Did they actually remove the valve covers and measure the valve lash, or is this an educated guess? Misfire codes or not, the valves should be adjusted at about 150,000 miles. Your 173,000 miles is well beyond that. 5 hours labor is about...
