Well here goes
98 honday odyssey (manf in CA)
118000 miles
PO740 check engine light on
Already changed the Power Control Module last fall (less than a yr!!)
My local Honda says needs new tranny 2500-3000 wasnt having any shifting issues till recently (light has been on 2 mos we havent been roadtripping it kinda babying it)
Then today I was turning left up a hill in a residential and it jiggitied between 1 and 2 I think but then followed thru fine then the check engine light started flashing!
We bought this a year ago and have already put in well over 2000!:mad: Any advice appreciated!!
Can I get a used tranny? My husband grew up on a farm and can follow a manual well is this something an amateur can do? :huh::frown:

I would suggest trying to change the fluid (I like Amsoil ATF) and opening the screens on the tranny and making sure they are not clogged.

I have 190,000 on my 98 and I too got that P0740 code since 130,000 miles. After doing the things I did above I now only get that code once a year and only when I have the van loaded down.

Should be able to get a used tranny too if that is needed. I would think for under $1000.

Hope that helps, good luck.
