  1. Help a n00b strip an engine

    1999 - 2004 Odyssey
    Hi! I have a 2004 Odyssey that is in hospice. We usually run our Honda's into the ground, donate, rinse and repeat. I have a friend who has a dog, Rusty, made from engine and crank shaft parts. I want to make my own, Cranky. I have access to an engine hoist, tools, working space, and all...
  2. 2008 Ody: the engine is growling at me

    2005 - 2010 Odyssey
    Hiya, folks. New guy here. My engine growls at me. The sound is constant - if the engine is running there is the sound - and it changes pitch with the RPM of the engine: greater RPM = higher pitch. When I put pressure left or right on the steering wheel, the volume increases somewhat. It's not...
  3. 2004 engine fit

    2005 - 2010 Odyssey
    Hey All! I am deciding whether to rebuild or replace the engine in a 2005, and I found a good used engine from a 2004 for a good price. I just want to be sure before I drop the money and effort to pull it that it will fit. Both had/have an auto transmission. How can I be sure?
  4. While replacing the Rear Main Seal...

    2005 - 2010 Odyssey
    I'm in need of an RMS replacement on an '07 with ~190K miles. While the transmission is out, what else should I have the mechanic check/replace? (I've searched the forum, but I have not found a definitive answer yet.) Thanks for your wisdom.
  5. 1998 Honda Odyssey RA3 Parts

    I have a 1998 Odyssey that I purchased. I lent it to a friend who was in a desperate need of transportation. Well I now know why he needed a transportation he blew the transmission out of his car. So during a 3 week stint with my van he blew the motor by running it 3 quarts low on oil. Adding...
  6. 2010 EX-L Engine Replacement

    2005 - 2010 Odyssey
    I've decided to swap out the engine and trany on our Ody with 219k miles. My mechanic says all the electronics go with the chassy. There should be no communication problems with the new/used engine / trany and the vehicles computer. Is this correct? Will I need to take it to a dealer to...
  7. Engine Replacement?

    2005 - 2010 Odyssey
    We purchased our 2010 EX-L van in 2017 with 126k mls. Unaware of a re-call or class action suit concerning oil fouling plugs. Actually it was near the end of the year when we had to first replace oil fouled plugs. Any way we've miss out on any redress of the issue. Recently it began missing...
  8. Weird Engine Sound at Cold Start in Reverse

    2018+ Odyssey
    I have a Honda Odyssey 2018 EXL. At cold start each morning over the last few months, (today is Christmas Eve 2019), I hear a grinding, rattling noise in my engine when I back the car out of the garage. The grinding noise occurs when the vehicle reaches the street when I press on break and...
