cgrscott: I am thinking of doing the timing belt replacing myself but, I'm not sure if that is the best path. Replacing my brakes and rotors I can do as well as engine oil and filter replacement. I have fixed all of my kitchen appliances myself but a timing belt and water pump replacement on an Oddyssey is over my head. My Odyssey has 219,000 miles on it and it is ready for it's second timing belt replacement and tune up.
cgrscott: The 2001 Odysseys get 140,000-170,000 miles out of their transmissions. Changing the Transmission Fluid does make a difference in longevity. The Transmission uses nine quarts of Transmission Fluid but it only lets you change and replace three quarts at a time. So, changing the Transmission Fluid once a year is not too often. Only use Genuine Honda Transmission fluid. Dextron will trash your Oddyssey transmission.
Henry Marquez: awesome, I have a honda odyssey 2003, which i am gonna try to replace the timing belt this spring 2013
stewardsproductions: WOW Thanks for posting this video Thumbs up
MoH ALO: Hey guys, you should rotate the engine by hand before put back the timing cover back to make sure every thing aligned
Tom Johnston: Very helpful! Thanks for posting. Anyone watching this should realize that some important steps are skipped. For example, there is a special procedure for bleeding the air out of the cooling system after replacing the coolant. If you don't do it, you could blow a head gasket or worse. The procedure, at least how it's listed in the factory service manual, is surprisingly complicated.
ez|2a: They do acknowledge the TDC marks in part 1 and line them up properly. Marking the old belt to compare to the new one isnt a bad idea, and makes installation of the new belt nearly fool proof (exact # of belt teeth between the cams and CP) but I dont know if I'd use a marker on a new belt. Perhaps some removable adhesive like painters tape. Too many DIY stories of cam(s) being one tooth off and causing issues.
dough537: I like the fact that you created this video, but I'm disappointed that the steps which were most challenging to you were not recorded. Seeing how you overcame those challenges would have been the most valuable part of the sequence.
Joseph Murphy: Many many decades ago I went to auto mechanics school. The best thing I was taught there was "Always protect your hands. You might want to touch something other then a car someday." Nitrile gloves are cheap and they help a lot in keeping oils and grease off your hands as well. This is a good video. When you replace the water pump glue that o-ring gasket in place with s little silicone adhesive. It will keep it from falling out and also help it to seal. But over all a good job guys.
Charles Theobald: 2001 Honda Odyssey Timing Belts and Water Pump Part 2 very helpfull for repairing my Honda minvan!
FAEL 1: Good video thanks!!
PVoyager: @bcourtenaya Holy Crap!! Wow thats extensive!! How many miles are on her now?
Bruce Anderson: Thank-you for making this video. I will be changing the timming belt on my 2001 Odyssey shortly, your video was really helpful!
BTW: I don't bother replacing the transmission fluid on this car. We only get about 1 1/2 years out of a transmission. We have had 5 new ones so far. Luckily, Honda extended the warranty for us to 207,000 miles. But in a normal transmission, I agree it needs to be replaced.
jj nonan: uncle dave do u mind to replaced my timing belt on my gmc van also??? hehehe!!! jk, what a nice friend to have like dave,,,lucky you (honda owner) save you a bunch of money for sure. thanks for showing this video i learned something here.
Tim Z: my 2001 acura cl 3.2 looses 3qt exactly everytime i drain it, Trans.. It holds about 8 so you change 3. Run it. Then do it 2 more times and it gets most of it. Safer than flushing as it does not disturb sediment. The plug is a 3/8 ratchet without a socket.
BAGUIOSITE: how many hour did you spend
PVoyager: could you, or dave, please tell me how many quarts of transmission fluid is required after drained? Thank you
