The trips we used to take don't happen as often. Hit 100K in 4 years (2006) and another 100K took almost 10.
I had to replace my original starter on my 2000 LX recently at 245K Miles!very few starter problem reported on this forum; unfortunately, most of them do not describe the pre-failure symptoms in detail
What brand of headlights did you use for $65 and were you happy with them?My 02 has 274K miles on it. Rebuilt the first trans at 200K after milking it for 36K (1700 from a local shop). Started noticing hard shifts at 164K. Every 125K I replaced the timing belt, pulleys and tensioner, also replaced the serpentine belt, plugs cam/crank seals and adjusted the valves. At 250K I elected to replace the radiator hoses and sway bar bushings. After 100K I had to replace the rear shocks, trunk lift supports, driver window regulator, all the motor mounts but the hydraulic one. After 200K I had to replace the PS high pressure hose, alternator. Runs great still, but is developing leaks where the oil pump is sealed to the block and oil filter valve assembly (did replace this one, others are major teardown). At 270 I had to weld back on the rear disc shields (cheaper that buying new ones) and replaced the headlight assemblies with ones off ebay (much easier to see now and only 65 for both). Lots of brakes, batteries and tires. Regular maintenance by the book.
OK thanks- yes, mine are a bit foggy and with condensation so they are bugging me.Just looked and the headlight (shells) no bulbs included and they were actually 75 for both to the door. Just some Chinese shells. Got them from carpartswholesale off their eBay site because they offered free return shipping. I figured if they were bad, I was out nothing. They have a site outside ebay as well.
The other day I added an 07 Ex to my collection of Hondas. It has 112K on it and I got it for 5K. Still needs the 105K major tune up work in it though. Just getting ready incase the 02 dies and I don't want to keep it alive (there is a lot of rattling going on as things are wearing).
I also used regular old Valvoline in the engine with fram filters. But do use ATF-Z1/ATF-DW1 and oem PS fluid.
Also forgot at 260K I had to replace the brake booster which has been going for 50K miles. Did not fail, but made wooshing noises after releasing the brake almost constantly toward the end.
Wow! That is great to hear!! Wow, our 2 ody's are young whipper snappers compared to some of yours.. 134k on the 2002 and 43k on the 2010. I hope to be replying to this thread someday with both of them passing the 200k mark!Big bump - our 2000 Odyssey is now at over 303,000 miles, and still on the original transmission.
I switched to amsoil ATF, fuel efficienct, about 28k miles ago. I will be changing it soon and getting a Blackstone labs oil analysis done, so will report their findings than. I have noticed a slight increase in MPG since the switch, and not enough of a difference in the shifting characteristics to really notice. I am planning on staying with amsoil, pending something worrisome from said report.
