Odyssey: My college age son in New Orleans is driving a 1996…

Customer Question
My college age son in...
My college age son in New Orleans is driving a 1996 odyssey. Recently had catalytic converter replaced after problems with check engine light and (code P0420: 3-way catalyst efficiency). Now the check engine light keeps coming on and he is also having trouble with acceleration where it just won't get up to speed. Mechanic in New Orleans has now replaced map sensor but car is still not accelerating right. Has suggested new fuel pumps next if problem persists. Any other ideas?

Hi,My name is ***** ***** I would be happy to help. Do you have the trouble codes related to the check engine light? The codes would be extremely helpful in determining what the issue may be.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
No, just the original code for the catalytic converter problem. the acceleration is the big problem at the moment.
Mechanic for Honda: justinsbg, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago
Yeah, I'm sure it is. With the check engine light coming on now it would be best to determine what code(s) are present. With that information I can help determine why the vehicle is running poorly.

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.

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.
