2000 Honda Odyssey major transmission problems.

Asked by Mar 19, 2018 at 09:07 PM about the 2000 Honda Odyssey

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I just bought a used 2000 Honda Ody. 142000
miles. Has wheel alignment issues but that’s not the
main issue. It has issues shifting at low speeds. This
morning I was going to work and it wouldn’t shift
out of first gear so I took the solenoid plate off the
transmission and cleaned the rods that have the
screens at the bottom, the center rod was very dirty
but the other two on the outside were clean. It had
another longer rod with no screen. I put it all back
together and drained the fluid and filled it back up
with three quarts that I got at the Honda dealership.
It shifts somewhat better but not well enough for it
to be functional. I need a miracle. I could replace
the solenoids but what I really think I need to do is
replace the transmission all together. Please
someone give me some options.

1 Answer

Another thing to add, when it shifts it sometimes shifts out of gear like it’s in neutral. I have to turn the car off and restart it to get it back in gear.
