Most reported Honda Odyssey problems
On certain models moisture can get into the rear wheel bearing and cause a noise. Replacing the rear wheel bearing is needed for this issue.
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.
On certain models the fuel gauge will not read full due to excessive resistance in the sending unit. Replacing the sending unit in the fuel tank will commonly repair this issue.
Sulfur deposits on the fuel sending unit can cause the fuel gauge to read inaccurately. Replacing the sending unit will repair this issue.
A faulty Idle Air Control valve (IAC) can cause the engine to surge and the Check Engine light (MIL) to come on. Replacing the IAC valve will repair this issue.
On some models the power seat can become inoperative when a cable becomes detached. Replacing the cable will fix this issue.
On certain models the rear brakes can groan when coming to a stop. Replacing the rear brake drums may be necessary to correct this issue.
