#47 of 100 Oil leak on Cooling system Of Odyssey.
May 02, 2009 (6:57 am)
Hi guys, I have a Honda Odyssey 1997 Model ( automatic transmission) .1 year ago , I replaced radiator when it started leaking.Recently, I noticed oil leaks on the oil pipe from the engine to the radiator (the shorter pipe).It leaks on the clamp.I changed the clamp and its still leaking.After a while I noticed the top hose of radiator was damaged.I changed it.
Do you think there is a problem with the radiator to cool the oil or maybe problem with the whole cooling system..Does the oil that goes to the radiator from the engine, have a pump,if so is it damaged.
Fans are working fine (I think) and radiator doesn't leak
#48 of 100 2009 Odyssey Blower Stopped working
Jul 06, 2009 (5:01 pm)
Our 2009 Odyssey is 7 days and 300 miles old. While returning from a road trip we noticed that it was getting warm and then realized that the blower was not working. At max speed I could hear it but there was no air blowing out from any of the vents.
We stopped at a rest area and shut the van completely. When we restarted the van, the blower started working and the van started getting cooler. I did not know that Odyssey now joins the list of "try rebooting" to fix.
Our dealer service shop cannot figure out what is wrong. Any ideas?

How long ago did you change the cabin air-filter? It should be changed as early as 15k mi. I think it is about time.

I saw some where that motor oil and anti-freeze can get cross-contaminated due to certain parts failed. Oil goes to radiator and anti-freeze found in engine.

#52 of 100 2000 Honda Odyssey's AC dies then resuscitates
Aug 03, 2009 (6:59 pm)
I'm reading with interest some of the fixes our readers have commented with regards to AC fixes. One notably message perked my interest is where the what-cha-ma-call-it under the passenger dashboard part is replaced for $60 and under 1 hour.
My problem is that my AC does not cool times (like yesterday), but today it worked like a charm (thus not a freon issue). It seems that it works only when it wants to.
Any of the readers experienced these types of symptoms? Pls let me know. Many thanks.

My 2004 Odyssey is having similar problems. Compressor turns on when A/C is turned on and blows cold for about 5 minutes. Then the compressor kicks on and off continually and doesn't produce any cooling. This A/C hasn't been charged or worked on since the last charge in 2007 because it has good pressure (30-35 psi low side pressure) while running and has cold A/C when it works. I am curious what you found to be the cause of your problem, or if anyone esle can give me any input. Thanks.

Erick, this is silly, but it turned out to be the alternator. Apparently, the alternator was not generating any juice, so that battery was low. When it because so low, the AC shut off. Somehow, the next day, all was back to normal, until 3 days later when I got stranded on the road. I took it to a local shop, and they replace the alternator. No more problems after that.
I guess, these new cars electrical systems are so different. It used to be on older cars, that if the battery was bad or low on juice, then all systems would go off at the same time.
The way the symptons on this van appeared threw me off and I thought for sure that it was the AC and I was looking at a $1000 repair.
Anyhow, good luck to you.

I'm taking mine in for the exact same problem. Did you find a solution yet?

it turned out it was the alternator not working, thus battery was low on power, and the AC unit shut off. I replaced the alternator, now I'm back in business.
