new owner of 2003 92,000 with seems like a transmisson problem, I should have visited this forum before buying. Problem is slowing to all most stop around maybe 5 mph and starting again the van will not shift it is either 1st to 2nd or 2nd to 3rd not sure enigine rpms go to 4-5K until I lift off pedel and then will be OK. does not do all the time but at least once every day. There are no codes lights on. Had fluid changed last week a dealer, did not help took back to dealer today and they can find nothing wrong. I did buy extended warranty with the van. I guess my question is, can I expect to get worse and will I ever get a warning light, so the dealer service can find some thing wrong... They told me today they could disassemble tranny and if they find a problem the warrany would cover repair , but if nothing is found I would need to pay. I bought van on 10/29/11.

thanks

Thanks for the reply, The warranty is 2yrs/24K. So it should fail before then. The reason I had fluid changed is to follow the policy of warranty.
How long was the start of "flare" to your trans. failing?
I have a 08 Pilot,and 02 Accord and very fond of Honda's but if I had visited this forum before buying the Odyssey I may have passed on it and went with my first choice of the Element.

Update it did not take long to fail, 4 days ago it did the FLARE and dash warnings lights came on. Took to Honda dealer " transmisson shot" The extended warrany co. will not allow Honda to do the work since the warranty co. wants transmission tore down for inspection, before they will cover, they will only use Aamco, so now the van is at Aamco for 3rd day with no reply, on what failed or if it will be covered. In the mean time I have a $40.00 a day rental that I must pay for, and warranty co. may pay and may not, only if they decide to cover transmisson. OH WELL live and learn.... Of course when I first was at Aamco they told me NO PROBLEM they deal with warranty company all the time and will have the van finished by end of the week. Well that was 3 days ago and they have pulled transmisson, but not yet tore down for warranty company to inspect.

Got the van back last night from Ammaco. The warranty company paid all the bill except for $100.00 deductable, and the $100.00 for oil cooler. Ammaco price was $2950.00. Seem good so far. BTW Honda price quote for exchange transmisson and labor was $5,800.00. Hopefully I will get 93K out of this rebuilt tranny. LOL. Honda also recommended timing belt $990.00 and spark plugs $219.00 be done.. I have a freind who will do both for $200.00 labor plus parts.
