Good Read. My daughters 2006 honda Odessey was running rough and idiling at 3000 rpm. The Tech found the Spill or Spool Valve filter was clogged. They had changed out the Oil Pump and the ECM only to find it was a filter problem with the Spill or Spool Valve.Once they changed the filter, it is running better than before.

you dont need the throttle body ass.... all you need is the idle control valve and make sure that you radiator is full since this valve is control by the temperature of the coolant

I have a 2011 Odyssey with 16K miles with a similar incident. I was traveling for the first time in the Blue Ridge Mountain area. The engine light came on, would not accelerate... The dealership says it's a failed spool valve. I picked it up today. Honestly, I don't want to keep the van now. When you spend 30K+ for a vehicle, the last thing you want is to be stranded and having it towed...especially when it's less than a year old.
I hope you have better luck.
#143 of 148 knocking noise on 2004 Odyssey
Sep 24, 2011 (3:34 pm)
About three years ago when the engine would get warm it would start knocking or tapping when it got warm. Now it does it all the time. When you rev the engine it gets louder until about 2000 rpms when it blend in with the engine noise. When you are waiting at a stop light you can hear it. It is on the passenger side and I do not know it is is the power steering or the valves need aqdjusting. Any help to figure it our would be helpful.
#144 of 148 Odyssey spit out spark plug

While driving along smoothly, why did my 2007 Honda Odyssey spit out the middle front spark plug and coil? It has 70000 miles on it and no one has ever removed or replaced the plugs.
Mechanic checked other plugs - all were in tight. Put coil in head (in place) and replaced plug.
#145 of 148 06 odyssey engine valve noise
Sep 13, 2012 (10:44 pm)
Hi, I've got an 06 Odyssey with excessive valve racket on one or two valves, but the noise stops 2500-2600 rpm on the way up and starts the same rpm on the way down. Does the spool valve activate the VTEC a set rpm or does it vary according to engine load. Once VTEC engages is it possible that it would eliminate the noise?

I have a 2003 Odyssey with 116k miles. It's the 6 cylinder model. While driving suddenly the Malfunction Indicator Lamp started flashing and the engine started running bad. The check engine lamp and on as well as the TCS. We scanned the codes and came up with seven. P0300, 301, 303, 304, 305, 306 and P1399. Cleared the codes, started the engine and it still was misfiring, no light immediately. We erased the codes, drove it 10 feet and the lights came back on, except the TCS. Read the codes, got 5 this time - P0300, 303, 305, 306 and P1399.
When we opened it up, there was evidence of a mouse nest under the cover, but can't find any evidence of them chewing on anything. We are guessing it's something they did or maybe it's just bad plugs. (Due to be replaced anyway.) We don't think it's likely it's the ignition control module.
Any guesses, theories or ideas?
