Hi all,
i recently became the owner of a 98 honda odyssey
last thursday the transmission started to grind and whine, and upshifting was a headache.
i checked the fluid and it was at level and clear.
the noise is audible at idle and in gear.
shifting causes jerky response and im afraid to drive the vehicle for fear of worsening the condition.
to make matters worse there is no honda dealer in Suriname ( where i live ), so im in the hands of local mechanics:nothappy::frown:

has any of you experienced similar behaviour, and what solved the problem ??
greetings
Remy

how's the fluid condition? if it's not in like new condition, imho, i'd just take a chance in flush and filling it 3x. and on the 3rd and final fill, i'd put a synthetic at fluid in it, like redline or mtl. the 1st 2 flush, and fill, you can just do away with any type 2 dexron at fluid or lucas at fluid treatment for about the same price of an oem honda fluid per qt.
