Sorry everyone I have had all service bulletins for 2007 odyssey performed when i initially had the problem 5 months ago. I saw the service bulletins on another forum and went to dealer and they were performed.

I started having the same pinging problems with only 1 week left on my warranty. You are out of luck after the warranty ends even if you establish the problem during the warranty and they can't fix it. Anyway, it pays to be armed with the Service Bulletins that I got from this forum because if the problem does not register a computer error code these new age mechanics cannot fix it. My dealer was willing to try the Service Bulletins without much hassle. Took 3 trips to the dealer but it got fixed. It was not the Intermediate Shaft Shield nor was it the Transmission Chirping one (July 09 Service Bulletin). At the last try they changed the Knock Sensor and re-clamped a shield around the catalytic converter. Not sure which fixed it but in addition to the pinging being gone, it runs completely different and you cannot attribute that to tightening a shield. One of things I did myself was to check the plugs and noticed that a ceramic insulator on one of the plugs was loose. Hard to pinpoint what caused it but engine pinging can do stuff like that.

5 days later since getting car back from dealer the van is back at the dealer for "Judder" problem. See my post in Honda Odyssey Transmission section: (Message #1210 BEWARE OF THE SOFTWARE UPGRADE) it is only getting worse. 27000 miles started at or around 26000 miles.

I can hear the engine pinging when I am parked in the garage or in the driveway at a distance. It is also noticeable at drive through windows when I next to a wall. Taking it to the dealer next week. Only have 5K miles on it.

#129 of 129 Valve adjustment necessary
Aug 01, 2012 (5:15 pm)
We have a '99 Odyssey and, according to the manual, should have the valves inspected. At 130,000 miles, the engine is still quiet. Will it get noisy when the valves need adjusting?
