So, recently our Ody 2011 EXL was having issues for the first time that I see many have struggled with. I've read a lot here in the forums and ordered a VCM Tuner II. Should be arriving any day.

A month or so ago, we felt a misfiring cylinder and the engine light come on. It went away and then came back last week. Took it to my mechanic, who I trust from years of good advice and service. He explained Honda has had issues (similar to things I've since read on these forums).. and he stated we might end up needing the engine replaced. For now, he replaced the ignition coil in the cylinder that had the issue suggested we drive it and see if its solved.

So I went online here in the forums and read up what might be the issue and could I avoid engine failure. I'd like to get to at least 200K


So I plan to install the VCM Tuner II myself. Van is well maintained and I've done all the normal maintenance requirements over time. What else should I consider after the install?

My list so far:
1. replace plugs, NGK was mentioned
2. replace O2 sensors, NTK was mentioned
3. Valve cover gasket replacement, and consider a valve adjustment (I need to check if/when last done)

4. Sell the Van and move on. I don't desire this, but from an economics, if it is to die in the next 40K miles, that would be my choice and not go further with it.

Thanks to all the information shared on this site!

Paul

Excellent. timing/belt water pump done miles ago. Will follow your advice. Will doubly check transmission fluid has been addressed too, I'm not sure on that status.

@geotek Thanks - more information to consider which is exactly what I was looking for. I've been putting off getting a diagnostic tool, this just might cause me to hit the buy button on one. I like the idea of a software based solution too. Again, hats off to all those that share their knowledge here.
