The Honda Odyssey is a minivan manufactured by Japanese automaker Honda since 1994, marketed worldwide. The Odyssey was introduced in 1995 as Honda’s first minivan with a 4-cylinderhead 2.2 L engine140 hp (’95-’97) and a 2.3 L 150 hp (’98) Inline-four engine.
The Inline-four engine or Straight-four engine is an internal combustion engine with all four cylinders mounted in a straight line, or plane along the crankcase. The single bank of cylinders may be oriented in either a vertical or an inclined plane with all the pistons driving a common crankshaft. Where it is inclined, it is sometimes called a slant-four. In a specification chart or when an abbreviation is used, an inline-four engine is listed either as I4 or L4 (for longitudinal, to avoid confusion between the digit 1 and the letter I).
The inline-four layout is the simplest design which is in perfect primary balance and confers a degree of mechanical simplicity which makes it popular for economy cars. However, despite its simplicity, it suffers from a secondary imbalance which causes minor vibrations in smaller engines. These vibrations become worse as engine size and power increase, so the more powerful engines used in larger cars generally are more complex designs with more than four cylinders.
In the wake of rising oil prices and the late 2000s economic recession, the market share for 4 cylinder cars had increased from 51% in 2008 to 61 % in 2009. For all road automobiles, the rate of Odyssey V6 had dropped from 63.9% in 2008 to 57.1% in 2009.
The inline cylinder four engine is much smoother than one, two, and three cylinder engines, and this has resulted in it becoming the engine of choice for most economy cars, although it can be found in some sports cars as well. However, the inline-four is not a fully balanced configuration. Four cylinder engines also have a smoothness problem in that the power strokes of the pistons do not overlap. With four cylinders and four cycles to complete, each piston must complete its power stroke and come to a complete stop before the next piston can start a new power stroke, resulting in a pause between each power stroke and a pulsating delivery of power. In engines with more cylinders, the power strokes overlap, which gives them a smoother delivery of power and less vibration than a four can achieve. As a result, six and eight cylinder engines are generally used in more luxurious and expensive cars.
By its second generation, the Odyssey was considerably larger than its predecessor and it came with a 210 horsepower (160 kW) V6 3.5L engine instead of the original, four-cylinder.
In 2002 the Odyssey also received a significant increase in power from 210 hp (157 kW) to 240 hp (179 kW) with a 3.5L engine.
In 2005 the engine power was increased to 255 hp with a V6 3.5L engine.
Why my Check Engine light comes on?
All modern vehicles have a computer or the ECM (Electronic Control Module) that controls the operation of the vehicle power train. The main purpose of this is to keep the engine running at top efficiency with the lowest possible emissions. With constantly growing demands for better fuel economy and new strictest emission regulations it’s not very easy to achieve. The engine parameters need to be constantly and precisely adjusted according to various conditions such as speed, load, engine temperature, gasoline quality, ambient air temperature, road conditions, etc. That’s why today’s cars have much more electronics than in early days – there is a large number of various sensors and other electronic devices that help the vehicle computer or ECM to precisely control the engine and transmission operation and monitor emissions.
The vehicle computer system has self-testing capability. When the computer senses that there is a problem with some of the components it stores the correspondent trouble code(s) in its memory and lights up the “Check Engine” or “Service Engine Soon” light to tell you that there is a problem and your car needs to be looked at.
To properly diagnose what is wrong, you need to take your car to a mechanic or a dealer. The technician at the dealership or a garage will then hook up the scanner to the car computer and retrieve the stored trouble code(s). Then he (she) will look it up in the service manual provided by a car manufacturer. The service manual contains the list of possible codes (about few hundred) and describes what each code means and what needs to be tested. The code itself doesn’t tell exactly what component is defective – it only indicates where to look, what engine parameter is out of normal range. The technician will have to perform further testing to pinpoint a defective part.
