1999 Odyssey running great EX with 164 miles. Went to California, Edmonton, and back to Vancouver within 2 years, dealer replaced tranny free of charge, I got triple flush done for 168 bucks at the dealer, and told them to put 1 liter less of tranny oil in, and replaced that liter with Lucas Tranny oil fix.

What can I say, this van is great, no major problems, only had to clean EGR. Now running great with NGK Iridium plugs.

I'm hoping this thing will go another 200+ miles.

Have spent 3 hours reading comments from Odyssey owners - thanks to all of you for writing.

Owned a 2000 Odyssey since new. Mi 127,295. All maintenance/repairs done via dealership or certified Honda tech.

Replaced trans at 121,800 due to seal leak - no warranty applied.

Have had some sliding door issues - not too bad, mostly adjustments.

CEL has been a constant problem for last 3 years. Not planning to replace the CC. Instead, will try all of the many suggestions made (fuel sys cleaner, gas cap, gas quality & air filter).

Will also check on the install of the pipe into the EGR port in the intake manifold, per the EGR port recall.

Also, have a TCS light problem, but brakes are okay.

My husband has a 1994 Civic with 500,000 plus miles & a very inexpensive record short of regular maintenance. Doesn't look like my Odyssey will do that without spending our children's inheritance.

Very glad to have found this site. Please keep the help and comments coming.

Very glad to find this site, it's very helpful to me.

I have 1999 Honda Odyssey EX. I got about same problem: CEL on, TCS on for half year. Every time re-starting the CEL is on first. Then driving is OK (even excellent). When the speed is over 50mph and the accelerator pedal is released, the TCS light will be on. But looks like nothing is wrong, the car still runs good.

I checked the error code, the problem is 'low air flow'.

If somebody knows how to deal with this problem, it will be appreciated.

You have bent wheels, as well as unbalanced wheels, also the tire may have excessive road force or flat spots...

2000 Odyssey EX in California. CEL #0420 was on for the last few months. I read all the stuff about CC replacement not fixing it for good. So I kept dreading and procrastinating. The week before the final due date for its SMOG check, the mechanic reset the light and we were able to get the SMOG inspection done, because the light did not come back on for about 3 days.

In any case, I want to do the right civic thing and fix the CC this year. Have found an OEM compatible catalytic converter, made by Walker, direct-fit type. No cutting/welding necessary. I will be ordering this WK-81769 from RockAuto.com with the 2 gaskets. $199 vs. $900 for dealer. Note the 81769 is approved by the CA-Air resources board.

I'm another one with the 2000 Odyssey EX with the CEL that keeps coming on. Mine is pushing 185,000. I already went through and replaced the CC, both O2 sensors, the EGR, tune up air filter, gas cap and cleaned out the port in the intake as I found on the web. The van runs fine, and I get between 20 and 24 miles to the gallon.

Again the CEL came back. It seems after reading 13 pages on this forum, that we are missing something. I haven't read any comments about the computer that controls this stinking light. Has anyone tried changing out the computer module? Is it possible for the computer to go bad on just the CEL? Has anyone looked at the wiring for any of these sensors? There has to be a common issue that we are missing. It seems like the issue is with the EX's and not the LX's, so what could be different? Any thoughts would be helpful!

Just wondering how your Walker CC went? My engine light just came on, and the CC was replaced, and the EGR valve and plenum cleaned by me, and it's back on. I went with Honda OE for the CC, and I won't know what the code is till I go to Autozone.

Thanks, Joe.

Yep, I just tried this one myself, and lo and behold, the light frequency greatly reduced and that was not on a full. Will refill tonight for a long journey Thursday which should also aid in the clean out.
