I HAVE A 2001 HONDA ODYSSEY WITH A 3.5L V6 ENGINE WITH 110,000 MILES AND I NEED TO REPLACE THE TIMING BELT BECAUSE IT'S PAST DUE. WHILE I'M AT IT I WANT TO REPLACE THE WATER PUMP, THERMOSTAT, AND THE OTHER BELTS. I'M NOT A GREAT AUTO MACHANIC LIKE YOU, BUT I HAVE DONE MANY SUCCESSFUL REPAIRS IN THE PAST. I CAN'T AFFORD THE $900.00 THAT THE DEALER WANTS. I'M IN NO HURRY BECAUSE THE CAR IS RUNING GOOD.AS YOU KNOW THIS IS A INTERFERANCE ENGINE AND I DON'T WANT TO END UP WITH BENT VALVES OR WORSE YET A DESTROYED ENGINE!   JOHN

Ok I totally understand.

 

You will most likely need the special tools to break loose the crank pulley. They are usually very tight. I use a 3/4" impact gun to break the bolt free. I will send the procedures in the next post. It's a lengthy procedure so it will take a few minutes.

    Linda B.USA

    Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

    EdUSA

    HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

    SummerUSA

    I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

    Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA
