What is this discussion about?
Honda Odyssey, Van
Jan 29, 2006 (12:34 pm)
I have an 1995 Honda Odyssey that 5 months ago during a snow storm (roads were slick)I slid into a curb at about 5 to 10 mph and hit the passenger side front wheel and messed up the lower control arm according to the repair shop,(the wheel was pushed in on the bottom pretty good) ok so they replaced the arm with a recycled part and said it was ok. They also did an alignment on it, my wife is the primary driver and I did not drive the vehicle for about 2 weeks, when I drove it it still had a pull to the right and did not have any real vibration, (there is now a very violent vibration that has gotten worse month by month, the vibration coincides with every rotation of the wheel almost like a side to side rocking motion) and it has a visual slight push in on the bottom of the wheel still and I also noticed that the passenger side front end is lower than the driver side. I checked tire pressures, rotated wheels, lifted the front end and checked the ball joints and they appear ok, looked for anything obvious cannot see anything, so I thought that maybe the control arm they replaced was also bad so I replaced the control arm with a new one and it still has the vibration and pull, I noticed that the front swaybar where it connects to the lower arm does not line up real well, ok now why did the vibration go from nothing to really bad (wore out bushings or something on the other side?) could the frame gotten pushed where the arm attaches, why wouldn't it have shown when they aligned it, not sure where to start as far as replacement of more parts go, any advice would help.

dealer says I need to replace the regulator but somehow I am not sure why squealing has anything to do with regulator. This probably will get lost in this thread. Where else I should post this.

This is probably as good a place as any to post it. What year? Our '02 drivers window sometimes shrieks when going up when wet as well. I just assumed it was one of the rubber gasket seals at the base of window catching and rolling, but I have never spent the time to really study it. If you find the cause, please let us know!

I have the same problem but, now I took A U-turn and something happened. My left tire is straight and my right tire is turned. I barley made it home.

If you want the best tires, buy the goodyear triple tread. If you want check them out at the tire rack. Rated #1. I have these tires and they are the best tires I ever owned period! hydroedge aren't that good in the snow! if you live in florida they are a very good tire (three season tire).

Hi I have a 2000 honda odyssey and I just came back from the dealer! they kept the car to put a brand new transmission in it. I had only 41,000 miles on it! just wondering if this will be the end of my transmission problems!!! The dealer said they solved the problem! with the second gear. with the 2002 and up they use a jet kit. she said with my transmission everything is new except for maybe the case! dealer gave me absolutely no problem!!

You are getting a mix of true but non-applicable information from your dealer.
1999 - 2001 used a 4 speed tranny that seems to have a variety of 'issues'. There is an extended warranty that should cover you for 7 or 8 years, 100k miles.
2002 - 2004 used a 5 speed tranny that had, most notably, a problem with second gear lubrication. Depending on the condition of the innards when it is inspected, they either added an external lubrication patch, or replaced the unit with an internal fix. But this situation does not apply to you!
