|Pls Help Honda Odyssey Transmission Issue! by miccodb(m): 4:29pm On Jan 05, 2012|
pls im tryna help a colleague solve transmission issues. he drove his odyssey(03) from festac to ajah and along the way his D light started flashing but without deterioration of performance. on getting to destination the blinking stopped. he parked and went in only to return 2hrs later and transmission failure. the transmission(torque converter) wouldnt engage on P, D or R. the car woud jus rev with no engagement from tranny. he called me to inspect n i found out dat his dip stick popped out most likely wen it was flashing D most likely cos ATF was boiling and pressure was high and i could see some oil splash around engine body but the tranny still had enough oil in it. only little spilled out. i got the car scanned and got codes P0141 and P0135 which were pointing to oxygen sensor. i have not made any change on dis vehicle here but i decided to come here for some help first beause i believe dis is a sensor issue cos a mechanical device doesnt just pack up without showing degradation of performance as symptoms only electronic devices like sensors i believe can fail like dis without notice.
pls i need expert comments and ideas.

Sorry, but I just want to ask for your expert opinion as well. I drive a 1999 Mazda 626 sedan(automatic) but I noticed recently dat whenever am on a long distance driving, it starts jerking on high speed. Called my mechanic's attention to this issue but he said d engine mountain had to b changed coz they were old. We did dat and I was travelling with my car to ogun state, I was close to Abeokuta, then it started jerking again, this time it was more serious compared to d earlier occurence. It wasn't changing from gear 1 to 2 or 2 to 3 without d engine overworkin on a particular gear level first. Thought it was d transmission fluid, but it still behaved d same way after changing d fluid. But if I park and allow it to cool, then it works well until I get to highway again on high speed. Pls what do u think I shld do, thanks

Jarnik:very familiar and seems common with mazda but i have to follow procedures here. is the MIL on? if yes then lets get the car car scanned first to pull out codes. but 1 thing u failed to mention is if it finally goes off wen it starts jerking or continues jerking all d way. ive used this mazda 626 for abt 2yrs now and know almost anything and everything abt dis car. i'll be glad to help. i love mazdas too

the odyssey is notorious for hv leaking tranny seals, the codes u pulled are oxygen sensors codes, n are not related to the tranny.those codes hv been on the car since, what i think is the tranny fluid level was low cos of leakage or something, that then made it overheat, ur first course of action is to change out n refill the transmission.take care to use the honda approved transmission fluid and the correct vol. if after that the car doesnt still engage.then ur tranny is probablly damaged, give us feed back, on how it goes

Do a trans service as suggested using right fluid
Probably misfire, get scan, will tell you exactly why you have check engine light on.(might need tune up)
Never let a mech work on your car without a scan first.
