  1. So what killed or do you think will kill your ancient Odyssey?

    1999 - 2004 Odyssey
    Not always. What took our 2nd gen out? Our Outback. Freak master cylinder failure sent my sister in law into the van at 25mph. RR bumper folded under, crumpled the frame, pushed the rear AC into the storage well,buckled the rear quarter over the wheel well out into the world, bent the lower D...
  2. Are you ever surprised to see so many 2nd gen Odysseys still on the road?

    1999 - 2004 Odyssey
    Until this summer, when it appears that there was a local 99-01 culling, there were absolutely tons of 2nd gens running around - like often we would be 1 of 3 at a stoplight (dozens of cars, 12 lanes, not like in Tucson, where a stoplight could be 22 stopped lanes and over well over 300 cars at...
  3. Blinker Not Operating Correctly

    1999 - 2004 Odyssey
    Probably the turn stalk. My son happened to be the one driving when ours broke. Our instance involved the high beam. It broke with the highs on, which sucks more than if lows were on permanently. $60 stalk at Rockauto, but be forewarned, the replacement broke withing a few months, so I had to do...
  4. Honda headache

    1999 - 2004 Odyssey
    OP, I am going to assume that you have bent valves. I went through this in our Accord ages ago. I had the timing belt done and just under 2 years later, it jumped some teeth taking off from a light. The shop that did the job took the car back, paid for the tow, took off the head, sent it out for...
  5. Engine light and Death Shakes

    1999 - 2004 Odyssey
    Go somewhere else. Get the plugs from a parts store for $60 or a bit more, then pay your nephew or the high school shop class to put them in.

    Along the Northwest Florida Gulf Coast. If you've got a failing tranny and live in the Deep South, PM me
  7. Part out/liquidation 2000 Ody

    Buy/Sell/Trade
    I haven't been around much since late June when my Outback took out my Ody. I have been inventorying uninstalled parts and have a list (plus I still have the van in the driveway, for interested parties) Everything would be a couple bucks plus shipping. I'd rather have it get used than sit...
  8. 2000 Odyssey 232K sudden overheating issue

    1999 - 2004 Odyssey
    Too bad you're not in Tucson. I have a good Honda indy.

    I have one to sell right now. NW FL. Maybe not to this OP, but if anyone is interested......
  10. 2000 Odyssey 232K sudden overheating issue

    1999 - 2004 Odyssey
    Another rare possibility is that you lost some of the core capacity inside the radiator. Happened to me. It was running a bit warmer than I expected uphill, then next vacation on level ground. Then it spit up coolant, so I ran to a friends house since we were 100 mi from home. Spent 5 hours and...
  11. Oil Change Fail?

    Periodic Maintenance
    Oh, and be sure its 6-sided not multiple access because I can see that that bolt has already been through some failures and another slip and it will surely need to go to a shop.
  12. Oil Change Fail?

    Periodic Maintenance
    OP, this is a logical answer, but since its been 3 days, I assume its already been to a local shop for the oil change. Thing is, on my first car, I let someone else do all that work, but then I got into it myself. As you experienced, you got to examine the whole underside of the van, getting to...
  13. What drains the battery on an Ody sitting unused?

    1999 - 2004 Odyssey
    Mine has never been able to hold a charge if left alone for over a week. But I got it with 285K and a teenager-hacked stereo wiring harness.
  14. I'll never buy another Honda

    1999 - 2004 Odyssey
    Hey I never said the door stays are well engineered. I only said that after 15+ years every carmaker has products that show severe signs of wear. I see lots of 20 yo Hondas on the road still. More than anything else besides full size trucks or Tacomas. If it wasn't for the whole tranny issue, I...
  15. Time to part out the Ody

    1999 - 2004 Odyssey
    Remember the 99-01 have 6.5" fronts not 5.25". I also have 4" rears. Not sure whats in the back after the refresh. But dang my 4" rears sound pretty awesome. As I spent some time trying to track down the disparity between the front and rear sound, I think it has to do with how Honda set up the...
  16. Time to part out the Ody

    1999 - 2004 Odyssey
    No, all this happened Saturday morning. We drove the ODY back to Tallahassee and rented 2 cars, went to Marathon, swam, snorkeled and found out all the gators moved away from the Royal Palms stop in the Everglades. 15 hour drive back Tuesday. I am sure I slept some of the way bringing the Ody...
  17. Time to part out the Ody

    1999 - 2004 Odyssey
    I am really going to miss not having my Acura wheel tho. Every time I get behind it and wrap my hands around it, I am like "the rest of the van can be crap, but this wheel makes it all worth it"
  18. Time to part out the Ody

    1999 - 2004 Odyssey
    No real interior damage unless it directly was effected by doors not closing, except for the RR, where the rear air is, although I haven't yet found evidence that that system got damaged, nor have I visually inspected it, but air flows and I think its cool. You need speakers?
  19. Time to part out the Ody

    1999 - 2004 Odyssey
    Lost it Saturday when our Outback plowed into it as we started out on a vacation. 2 cars down in 1 day. 327,000 and the transmission got pulled out and rebuilt at 285,000. Think there may be any demand for that trans? I have almost no body parts to offer after this kind of use, but I may have...
  20. I'll never buy another Honda

    1999 - 2004 Odyssey
    15 year old plastics and door stays. Seriously. What 1955 Chevy didn't have problems in 1970? Show me a 15 year old Camry. No, seriously. Toyota products tend to disappear from off the streets between 10-12 years after being put into service. What minivans were around in 2004? Chevy Uplander...
