I don't know about the engine reving but hard starts have been discussed below. Take a look at http://www.odyclub.com/ubb/Forum2/HTML/000347.html<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">Originally posted by bookierocket:
Two month old 02 EX during the past several weeks takes several turns of the key to start. Wife also says that engine sometimes revs when she's cruising. Any ideas as to what's going on would be appreciated. </font>
I've never had any problems starting the vehicle. I do experience the pause before going into drive everytime. Doesn't really bother me as it works fine.<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">Originally posted by hondacaddy:
After taking a long highway trip and trying to start my GGEX02 in the morning it took two trys to start. I also have the pause before it goes into gear. My 99 Ody never did this maybe it has something to do with the new 5 speed transmission</font>
My June 7, 2002 Odyssey has the same disconcerting pause from R to D. I hate it. Only other time I noticed this behavior in a vehicle was my 1980 Supra which ultimately got a ruined automatic transmission due to a shop's use of "universal" transmission fluid rather than the specified Type F fluid.odynick said:I noticed today that there seems to be a longer pause when going from N to D, then when going from R directly to D.
