20 Most Recent 1996 Honda Odyssey Questions & Answers

Local mechanic determined engine was flooded and started it by holding throttle to the floor and cranking 5-7 seconds - then the engine sputtered to life. It has run perfectly before and since and I'm at a bit of loss to understand why this occurred this one time - so far. It's been driven now 5 days with no problems.

Did you change out the thermostat? I would also change out top and bottom radiator hoses if they feel soft. They should have firm sides.

If you don't fix the underlying problem, the SRS light will just come back on right away. There is no way to bypass this. Fix it or live with the light. Erasing the code and not fixing won't help at all

Do you see a huge oil puddle under the car after it sits overnight (it would be huge!)? If no then the engine is burning the oil, you don't see smoke because the catalytic converter burns it up.

If the engine is misfiring you would have a blinking check engine light and a fault code stored for the cylinder that is misfir9ing is that the case? If it was me I would replace the spark plug wires, they are cheap and most likely the problem.

Well, nothing may be necessarily wrong. try a tune up, changing the spark plugs, spark plug wires, oil, air filter and fuel filter and see if this boosts your performance. It should help significantly.

Hi, you will need to pump it out. It is best if you can pump it from the fuel rail, so that only a minimal amount would get into the injectors. You can do this by removing the fuel return hose from the fuel pressure regulator and attaching a hose that you will lead to a bucket. With the hose in the bucket, turn the key on so the fuel pump runs. If the fuel pump will not stay on, please get back to me, and I will provide a relay bypass procedure toi keep the pump running. With the pump running, the diesel should come out the return port into the bucket. If it comes out too slowly, try pulling a vacuum on the vacuum hose that's attached to the regulator. You can use your mouth to pull the vacuum if you attach a clean hose. Once you have all of the diesel out, put in some petrol and pump a couple liters of that through as well. Then reconnect the hoses, and the car should start OK. Please let me know if you have questions.

If the check engine light came back on after the computer was reset you need to take it and have the code read to see what the problem is. Most auto parts stores will check it for you free such as Autozone, O'riely, Pep Boys.
