Im having a hard time...
Im having a hard time starting my 2005 honda odyssesy ex-l 170k, the other night I had to jump start my vehicle because it was too hard to start , after driving on the streets for about 10 mins I heard a wierd noise coming from the passenger side of the engine it almost sounded like gulping water type of noise and a minute after that I lost complete power on the van, I checked under the hood and there was no fluid leaks the only thing I noticed was that the serpentine belt was of by one groove and I replaced it with a new one. Now after getting battery inspected and fully charged I tried starting van with no luck it sounds like a weak crank I tried using a new battery and still the same results what could be wrong?

Remove the belt again and see if one of the pullies is locked up or turns roughly.

The only one thats not spinning freely is the crank pulley other than that everything spins fine

Do any of them fell rough when you spin them?

No sorry I dont if I get one what would I be looking for, also I took video of how the engine sounds and posted it on youtube here is the link
https://youtu.be/rlF6lZhL1Os

Thank you for the video. I hate to say it but it sounds like the timing belt may have broken. Can you run a compression test to see if that is what is going on?

Im going to do that Later today, I replaced the timing belt 40k miles ago whats the average life of a belt?

As long as the belt does not get damaged or contaminated with oil, it should last over 60k miles.

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
