Hello Odyssey world,

This is my first post.

I have a 1999 Odyssey EX. It has 162k miles and has basically been bullet proof. We have noticed an intermittent problem lately. It's been really hot outside and about 1 month ago the van stopped running while my wife was trying to get on the interstate. The green key light came on and she pulled over, parked it and started it right up and ran without any problems. Then yesterday (a month later) it happened again. It cut off while going down the road. What could this be? Has anyone had similar issues? EGR valve, distributor, ignition switch etc. The mechanic said that being so intermittent, it's hard to pinpoint exactly what it may be.

Thanks in advance, Joey
