The Honda Odyssey Gearbox

When you take apart and look inside a gearbox, you will find a huge assortment of parts in a fairly small space. Among other things, you see:

In an Automatic Gearbox

An ingenious planetary gear set
A set of bands to lock parts of a gear set
A set of three wet-plates clutches to lock other parts of the gear set
An incredibly odd hydraulic system that controls the clutches and bands
A large gear pump to move gearbox fluid around

Manual gearboxes you will find a lay shaft, collar and folks.

Manumatic gearboxes Manumatic is a portmanteau word, combining the words manual and automatic, that applies to a class of automotive gearboxes. Manumatic most often refers to an automatic transmission, with some Odysseys of manual gearbox control (e.g. a gear can be manually selected instead of having the computer control all shifts). This type of transmission was introduced in the beginning of the 21st century. Different car manufacturers have been using a variety of labels for their manumatic transmissions, such as ‘tiptronic’, ‘Geartronic’, ‘Touchshift’, ‘Sporttronic’, and others.

Odyssey Gearboxes

The first generation gearbox came with a 4 speed automatic gearbox and the second generation gearboxes also featured another first – a tiptronic-like manual mode, known as “Honda S-matic”, in which a gearbox remains to be a classic Honda’s hydro-automat, but the driver is able to manage the shifting moment (if electronically allowed) with the selector’s ‘+’ & ‘-‘ positions. Moving the gear-stick over to the right allows manual selection of 1st, 2nd, 3rd, or 4th gear using up and down shift actions just like the sequential gearboxes.

The third generation came only with an automatic transmission, while the 2WD version came only with a continuously variable transmission.

Odyssey gearbox problems

The 4 speed automatic transmission in 1999 to 2001 models had serious problems with transmission durability. Honda spokesman stated that four-speed models were afflicted with a bad bearing that could break apart, scattering fragments of metal that clogged fluid passageways in the transmission, causing it to shift erratically. Honda responded to the problems by extending the warranty on the transmission on ’99-’01 models to 7 years or 100,000 miles (160,900 km). A class action settlement further extended coverage to 109,000 miles (175,400 km) or 93 months for some ’99-’01 Odysseys in the U.S.A. Canada is not included. The five-speed automatic gearbox was first installed in Odyssey in the 2002 model, but general reliability of the transmission did not improve until 2004 according to Consumer Reports. The five-speed models typically were damaged by premature wear of the third-gear clutch pack. As the clutch friction material abraded, it scattered bits inside the transmission case, clogging fluid lines and causing erratic shifting. Drivers might suffer slipping, poor or no shifts, or sudden down-shifts from 5th gear to 2nd gear.

Under some conditions, a different 5 speed transmission problem arose, whereby second gear could overheat and break, causing the transmission to lock. An oil jet was added to lubricate this gear but this did not solve the third gear clutch problem. The addition of the Honda transmission cooler with the towing package still allows transmission fluid temperatures that are too high. But it was required along with a power steering cooler for any towing, or the warranty would be void.

There are a few words in the language of auto repair that make car owners want to crawl back into bed, and “gearbox” is at the top of the list. There’s something about that mysterious box underneath your car that incites fear. Unfortunately, most repair shops know this, and will take advantage of the situation by reaching deep into your pocket.

Your gearbox is a remarkable contraption. Somehow it can shift your car from gear to gear, knowing how fast you need to go and how quickly you need to get there. What goes on inside is a mystery to most. Unless your thirst for automotive knowledge borders on compulsive, you can leave it a mystery.

Gearbox problems fall into two very similar categories:

Won’t go
Won’t go smoothly

Most Odyssey gearbox problems can’t be fixed by the average do-it-yourself. There are just too many specialized tools and pieces of equipment you’ll need, and buying this expensive gear just to screw up your first three tries at fixing the thing just doesn’t make too much sense. When your Odyssey gearbox gets tired, you’ll have to buy another and we can supply that need.
