Without taking the time to weed through all the threads and try to find an answer to my issue I will just post it. I purchased a 1999 Odyssey knowing the transmission was bad, but not knowing all the issues in the 99-01's. Here is my problem: I just had the transmission rebuilt, new pump, new valve body. It will not go into 1st or reverse until it reaches roughly 1300 rpms, and then everything is fine, does not slip, all gears are fine until you stop again. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
