Odyssey..slight..the dash nor do I have any slipping of the gears…

Customer Question
I have an 01 Odyssey...
I have an 01 Odyssey and every time I press the gas there is a slight whirring sound. The sound is also present when the engine gears down. I have no lights coming on in the dash nor do I have any slipping of the gears.

Ok this is most likely internal in the transmission.What you need to be done is have the van on a lift woth a tech driving the van up in the air and another under the van with a set of chassis ears.They can then pinpoint the noise.There are alot of issues with these transmissions failing as you know.You can try a service Honda fluid only along with a cooler.It might just be a belt tensioner failing or water pump.This is how it needs to be properly diagnosed to pinpoint the issue.

Hoped this helped.

Relist: Answer quality.
I'm looking for a Honda specialist who already knows the issue not so much guess at the answer. I can appreciate that your panelist aren't mind readers but I was hoping on a Honda specialist with a very good understanding and experience with these issues.

Its internal in the transmission.I have been working for Honda for almost 20 years.This is the way it needs to be diagnosed it can be a few different issues.I f you want to guess thats up to you .I have seen guys repalce transmissions for this issue and it was a tensioner the entire time or an intermediate shaft bearing in the axle.Click my verified sign Im the only guy thats actually verified working at a Honda dealer these are the issues.I will not tell you its any one thing that failed until its properly diagnosed.This is how it needs to be done the correct way and the common issues.Almost 20 years on Honda trust me I know.

Positive feedback and bonuses greatly appreciated.

Thank you very much for saving my daughter and her family a lot of money on her Honda. You are definitely on my list for future help. Thanks, again.

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 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

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK

This expert is wonderful. They truly know what they are talking about, and they actually care about you. They really helped put my nerves at ease. Thank you so much!!!!
