Default Honda Odyssey 2002 Transmission Problems

My transmission is slipping badly. Heavy bump 1st to 2nd, and slip
and rev up before shifting 2nd to 3rd.

My mileage is 41k, and the vehicle has been driven very gently since it
was new. Anyone experience this problem? It will obviously need a new
transmission, been this route with a previous Ford van.

Wondering if anyone got any help from Honda since this is just 6k out
of warrantee? A repair shop in my office complex says many transmissions are
going
bad on this model. He said that Honda.has extended the warrantee on
the Odyssey gave me an 800 number to call. The person I spoke to
said no there is no extension, take it up with the dealer.

Any input appreciated.

Honda has extended the warranty to eight years on this transmission. You
describe the very symptoms that caused Honda to extend the warranty.

I am very surprised that the dealer and Honda are being so recalcitrant. It
has been my experience that cars affected are being repaired without
question.

Has the transmission been replaced already?
Have you put aftermarket fluids in it?

TAKE IT UP WITH THE DEALER. And don't take no for an answer.

Honda put out a $350 million recall on these transmissions. Did you get
a notice for that?

If the dealer balks, find another one. Keep asking to go a level
higher. Ask to talk to the Honda zone rep.

Honda will replace this transmission.

Not on the 02 models. That was for the 99-01 models.

http://www.hondacars.com and head to Honda OwnerLink. Register there,
put in your VIN, and see what it says about recalls.

I wonder if part of the problem is with Honda's use of the already
marginal Accord transmission in the bigger heavier van which van is
capable of carrying a huge load.

I just experienced the "D" light flashing, and this is an indication of a
transmission problem.. the dealer did not think so, but in scanning the
OBDII codes, there is a P1740 code set, the 4th pressure switch in the
transmission has a problem.. or something like this.. my dealer told me the
light flashed because it was not all the way in gear!... hello...
