    Hopefully NOT.......but it appears the wife's '04 Honda Odyssey needs a transmission job.

    Slipping really bad. Runs ok if I shift it to 2nd (this is an automatic tho) but it's slipping badly wehn put in Drive.

    According to chatrooms, this is a common problem with the Odyssey starting between 80 and 120K. She's at 135K.


    &^%$ Idiot lights are on all over her board. Check engine, TCS, and SRS (whatever the hell that one is) lit up like a Christmas tree.

    SRS is supplemental restraint system, controls the airbags.

    Took the van to our mechanic for diagnosis tomorrow. I noticed that it was fine for the first 10 miles or so and then we had to put it in D2 to keep her pulling. Makes me wonder about the transmission cooler and if it is bad. Does that make any sense?

    Possible. Doubtful, but possible. Check your transmission fluid - smell it. You'll be able to tell if it's burnt or not. If so, not good news. If not, you MIGHT be able to do some less expensive repairs and get by for a while. And no - no idea how long a 'while' might be.

    I would avoid a Tranny flush. Its too harsh on vechiles over 100k. Man this makes me want to replace the filter in my Landy but I don't have the time for that right now.

    Sorry to hear about your bad luck.

    Welp I settled on a Jasper re-built with a 100,000 mile warranty + additional cooler and filter for $3300 installed and added in replacing the timing belt and related items for another $600. Should be done next week.

    And now Mrs. Geezer isn't sure that we shouldn't have just done a simple tranny job for $2200 and traded it off. (I do wish she could stick with her decisions)

    Edit....BTW, my tranny was fried....burnt to a crisp.

    Good luck with it geezer. I have become a Honda guy after my current cars (250K miles and going strong on the wife's 2003 Honda Pilot, 105K miles and no issues on my 2005 CRV).

    My first Honda I sadly totalled at 190K miles without the first problem.

    This followed a string of American cars, dating back to when I was a teenager, none of which made it to 100K. It was admittedly a string of pretty crappy models: Chevy Impala, AMC Hornet, Chevy Cavalier, mid 80s 4-cylinder Mustang, Dodge Grand Crapavan...

    The wife's 04 Odyssey and my CRV both had electronic door lock issues (yeah I know, but it's still irratating) at the same time. The fix for mine was to get the F-150 because the CRV's seat made my left hip and leg go numb if I drove to Bloomington more than once in a weekend (which I do frequently). THe fix for hers was about $300 worth of sending units and other parts I have no idea what they are called. Her van currently rests at 136,000...now has a rebuilt tranny and new timiing belt with associated parts. My F-150 is almost all I could hope for after a new set of tires.

    It appears the skid plate under the kids '00 Audi A4 has dropped and is dragging the ground.

    Two questions....

    1) Where to get this fixed before they head back to college

    2) When are these auto problems going to stop?

    Jr. had a young lady with him last night that I would very much like to see be the mother of my grandchildren. Wonderful girl and great personality while sharing all of Jr's interests. Even his mother was impressed.

    Now if he'd just take an interest in her. Nah, right now he's too goal focused (which is prolly a good thing). But sometime in the future......

    You know how hippos are made out to be sweet and silly, like big cows, but are actually extremely dangerous and can kill you with stunning brutality? The Pacers are the NBA's hippos....Matt Moore CBS Sports....
