1996 Honda Odyssey ProblemsWarped Front Brake Rotors May Cause Vibration When Braking
The front brake rotors can warp and cause a vibration when braking. The rotors will need to be machined or in cases where they are worn to thin, replaced to correct this issue.
A seal in the 4 cylinder engine around the balance shaft tends to fall out, causing a large oil leak. There is a retaining device available to prevent the seal from falling out, which can be put in place during routine timing belt maintenance.
There is an issue where the transmission can have a torque converter problem, or the computer monitoring the torque converter can misinterpret the information, and in either case this can cause the Check Engine Light (MIL) to illuminate. The problem will need to be diagnosed and depending upon what is causing the issue, the transmission will have to be repaired or the computer replaced.
