In this episode of Fixing it Forward I work on the engine in the 2005 Honda Odyssey. I replace the timing belt and water pump, valve cover gaskets, spark plugs, rear catalytic converter, side engine mount, transmission fluid, battery and battery terminals.
I also perform a compression test on the engine as well as talk about the VCM system and how some people like to delete it.
There is still quite a bit of work to do on this Odyssey, but I’ve made a lot of progress bringing it back. I hope you find it entertaining and educational.
