#2273 of 2416 2008 Odyssey Stutter
Jul 29, 2012 (7:41 pm)
I have a 2008 Odyssey EX-L with about 60k on it. The van seems to stutter at highway speeds usually 60mph. I have read many of the other post but am getting confused. Is this a transmission problem or motor mount issue? It is a certified pre-owned van from Honda and we picked up the Platinum Bumper to Bumper warranty as well. Worst case scenario is the Tranny will need to be replaced??? If so will it be covered under warranty 100%?
Thanks for the help,

Is the Platinum warrenty from Honda or an after-market warranty house? Did the warranty include the Power Train? If it included the Power Train and you got 100,000 warranty time period you should not have to pay to replace it.
On my transmission replacement, in 2007, I wrote Honda and in the meantime paid the full amount of CN$4,200. They refunded half. I had 184,000kms on it and my warranty was for 160,000kms. Had it happen up to 160,000kms it would have been 'no charge'.
I currently have 307,000kms on my 2002.

I just had my Odyssey towed to the dealer yesterday. Transmission started showing signs of problems about 2 weeks ago. But, it clunked and slipped like crazy yesterday morning. The original transmission was replaced at about 60K, 1st replacement was then replaced just shy of 90K. This 2nd replacement transmission lasted less than 30 months and I got less than 25K out of it. Odometer is at 114K+.
I expect that Honda will give me some kind of discount because this is a ridiculously short life for a transmission. Everything about the vehicle is nice except for the transmission. I always warn people looking for used 99-01 to be aware of the notorious transmission issues. 02-03 also have problems but not as bad as the old 4-speed.

Good to hear Dan. Don't get depressed if you find that you need to do it one more time, maybe in 20,000 or 30,000 miles.. There will be residule debris in the passages, but second cleaning with some fresh Tranny fluid will extend the next interval. I agree that most problems with our tranny started with these filters, but there are also engineering problems, such as a weak thrust bearing and problems with the torque converter.

on the risk of being misunderstood as a fan of honda, i say: the tranny after 150k miles, and after cleaning the screens in 3k miles, moves pretty well, although, i noticed that after drivning for 30-45 mints, first gear to second shift becomes jerky, and ugly. when cold, no problem whatsoever, stilll 200000 times better than what used to be , that might proof what you said,
any remedy for the weak thrust bearing and torque converter short of replacing them?

i have 2000 odyssey also....my shop is telling me there is a problem with the solenoid, so they want to rebuild the transmission, etc. Can the solenoid be fixed instead...how do they interact?

your shop is bsing u like they did to me, tell them specifically that you want them to remove and clean the linear and shifter selonoid, just clean , put back and ur car will run much better. i did that to my 2000 oddy myslef and ran like charm. problem is, how do u know they did that<? where do you live?

All solenoids are located outside of the tranny so there is no need to overhaul. If your clutch plates are worn due to the lack of pressure (faulty solenoid) than you need to overhaul. Wonder what the cost of solenoids? You can look up the cost online.

you will never find a tran shop that tells you it is only the selonooidss.. it is always overhaul.. why? coz the difrence is 3500 dollars for them .
clean your seline diyons.. selonoids and see what happens.. it is i think 3 hours by the book, although , me no mechanic with cave man tools, i did it in 3 hours.
