problem #2

Odyssey 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 69,345 miles
1. the shifter for the automatic transmission on my Honda Odyssey lost all tension - sliding from park through all driving modes. It would not have stayed put in drive, reverse or other if the car went over a bump. 2. we avoided accident and injury by not driving it until the transmission was rebuilt. 3. Honda refused to include it under warranty or recall. Manchester transmissions rebuilt the transmission and identified these problems: A) broken detent (ro) spring (manchester transmissions and manchester Honda claim they have never seen this spring break before) and that it appears to be due to a defective part. B) worn clutches. C) worn torque converter clutch and cooler. D) replaced solenoids and rear transmission mount.

Back in fall of 2003 we needed a new transmission, then again in May 2004 we needed another new transmission. We have had 2 new transmissions built into our car. Also now we have an 02censor and catalytic convertor sensor installed.
