#644 of 745 front passenger side brake locks on
May 11, 2009 (12:14 pm)
Hello, has anybody had the problem of the front passenger side brake locking onto the disc, this has now happened 4 times the worst was when i was doing around 70 mph,i got a sudden vibration and loss of power (engine over revving to get power up ), i could barely reach 30 mph once this started,i limped home ,by that time the brake was smoking,yet after it cooled off it was fine for a while and then it obviously happened again, and keeps on happening ,i had work done on the cv boot (replaced as Worn) would this have anything to do with it?work was done by none honda dealer, i have had the wheel off , cleaned all the brakes and cylinder, but it is still happening, the brake servo was replaced when i bought the car 2 years ago,any help or suggestions appreciated as everything looks ok? please help i am getting concerned that this will suddenly lock totally, my odyssey is a 1995 with 52k 2.2lx i used to think it was the best car ever now it seems to be having a lot of problems..thanks Ed
#645 of 745 Bumper protection solution?
May 24, 2009 (2:46 pm)
Got some dings/dents in the center of rear bumper of my new Ody. Searched honda dealer website, there's only corner protector to cover existing damage and protect future scratch. Didn't find anything beautiful for center damage hiding/protection. Was looking for some bumper sticker but didn't find anything satisfactory, was looking for generic after market molding but not satisfied either, then was looking for some grille bumper guard that I saw on streets for many toyotas but didn't find anything for honda... I'm not a fan of parking sensor...
Does anyone has a best bumper protector solution that (1) can hide existing center dings/dents and (2) provides future minor damages.

My wife drives an '06 Odyssey with 76,000 miles her service light just came on for service B 2? What all is included in that service? Is there anything else that should be done at this time?
#649 of 745 Transmission service on 2007 Ody

Anyone know what is involved with a"30k transmission service" besides just changing the 3.3 quarts of transmission fluid? Honda dealers charge a bit over $300.00 in my city. I do all the maintenance my self by the book.
#650 of 745 First Service- When?
Jun 02, 2009 (12:29 pm)
I have a 2008 Odyssey, bought new about 8 months ago. I have put only 2200 miles on it. The dashboard indicates 70% oil.
When should i get the first service?

Change the oil once a year if you don't have enough mileage.

the only service recommended is a drain and fill x3 (they drain, refill, drive, and then do it 2 more times). Not a big process.
I think I paid about $89 at the dealer to have it done on my 2005.

That oil in a new vehicle is break-in oil. I like to put a lot of miles on it so it can do its job. At the same time I wouldn't want to run the same oil over maybe six months depending on the climate in your area. An engine should get thoroughly warmed up to drive off water etc. You are in a catch-22. Take a couple of long trips to christen that baby!
