Default Honda Odyssey 2000 transmission failure

Hi there!

One year ago, when my Odyssey was still under the extended warranty
for its transmission, the check engine light turned on. The Honda
dealer daignosed code P1736 - "3rd clutch pressure switch stuck open".
The dealer cleared the code, test drove the van and determined that
everything was fine. Now, one year later, with my car out of the
transmission warraty extension, the dealer diagnosed code PO740 -
"torque converter clutch system failure" and I was told I need to
replace the entire transmission - cost $2,900. I called American Honda
and after some discussion they worked out a deal with the dealer to
cover 40% of the cost of repair. I believe Honda should cover 100% of
the cost of replacement given that the transmission problem first
appeared last year under the warranty.
Are the 2 issues with the transmission I had related? Can I make a
case that the transmission was going bad already last year? Thanks.

I'm sure any deal you make here will hold up in any Honda dealership. You
should be having this discussion with Honda. How many miles out of warranty
are you? Have you had the required transmission service done? For
information on what others have done do a search at www.odyclub.com forum.

No idea whether they are related, but it seems to me that if all the
dealer did was clear the code and then drive the van, they were
negligent as they should really have checked out the code. OTOH, that
may be why Honda is offering to cover 40% of the replacement.
