I had a bad accident with my 2002 Honda Odyssey EX-L (sideswipe drivers side)

Parts for sale LOL!! (minus engine and trans)

I have found some Odyssey's local with bad trans and I would like to know if I could Buy 1999? Would my engine and trans work in 1999,2000,2001?

Please Help! wife needs a van, hard to go away from Honda :)

I think you'd have a tough time with that exchange. The upgraded engine and 5 spd tranny of the 2002-2004 might be made to physically fit where the original engine and 4 spd sat in the 1999-2001, but getting the ECU/TCU to work? Even if you also moved the computers, are all sensors and connectors identical? I doubt you'd ever get it to run right, and code free.

There is a shop manual available on CD (and maybe still as a download) that has years '99-'03 all together. You might be able to examine in detail the electrical diagrams of the two different series and see if everything would line up. Same with engine & tranny mounts, half shaft lengths & part numbers, etc.

Hey friend,
What was the mileage on your Ody?

Are you parting it out?

Do you have any photos?

Please pm me your contact details if you are.

Glad I asked the experts!! I did not know the differences, no way would i try and change the ECU/TCU. Not worth the time, I would not do it unless its plug and play. So it would be safe to say that the only years that work is 2002, 2003, 2004?
