New owner of a low-mileage 2001 Odyssey. I've read a zillion transmission threads, but haven't seen this question asked: Are there any parts and pieces of the transmission that might benefit from the installation of the oil jet in the same fashion as the early 5-speed transmission? Might a continuous shower of clean fluid be of value for controlling temperatures if not outright gear or bearing lubrication?

They are 2 different transmissions and I doubt the oil jet would benefit the 4-speeds (i.e 1999-2001s).

I agree with New Dad, the older ones didn't have a gear overheat problem like the 5 speeds. The problem with the old ones is usually torque converter or clutch material wearing off. Some say because of overheating fluid but no one seems to know for sure.

Agree with others above that the jet kit won't help the 4-speeds. Best way to keep the transmission cool is to install a cooler.

Thanks for the replies. Yes, I know the transmissions aren't the same and the 2001 gearbox doesn't have the gear directly below the fill plug opening; my question was asked with the intent of determining the value of a continuous spray of oil on whatever parts do exist. My hopes weren't particularly high:) Someday when it's warmer (outdoor temps are hanging around 10-15F at the moment) I'll remove the plug and try to determine what lies below.
