Hello to all Odyssey owners on the odyclub. I have been reading posts on your site for several weeks as I wait for my SS 2002 LX to be delivered. This club has been a wealth of info and I feel prepared to inspect my van thoroughly when it arrives, thanks to you guys. (Right pull? Paint flaws? etc). I also look forward to many forays into the frightening-but-exciting-world of modifying this expensive beast.

BUT now to the actual question: I seem to remember reading, just a few days ago, some posts about the cast aluminum engine case being porous to oil on some Ody's. And some owners were appalled to find that the dealers were repairing it with JB weld. However, I've searched this whole site repeatedly and can't find any of these posts. Am I going crazy? Did my soon-to-be-an-Odyssey-owner anticipatory state induce hallucinations? Or is there really a problem?

Any guidance would be most appreciated.

Thx, stlody

OOPS... I just found these posts a few down from my entry (see "Drip, drip, drip" in this forum). Does anyone know why repeated searches with the terms "oil", "seal", or "porosity" failed to find these posts--despite the fact that they are all in this thread? Oh well...hopefully my future posts won't be this moronic!

I used a sister product of JBWeld on a fitting on the AC condensor on one of my other vehicles. This is extemely high pressure compared to engine oil pressures; and it held just fine for several years.

(I was actually surprised at just how well it held up.)
