2004 Honda Odyssey makes a roaring sound when I acclerate
I went on a long trip from Virginia to Niagara falls in my 2004 Honda odyssey last month. It has only 122,000 miles on it.
I noticed a roaring sound when I would accelerate on the highway. My AC comprerssor went bad on me and I drove to the Falls and back home without AC. There was a bad burning smell.
I had that changed when I returned home.
I did check my oil level before leaving on the trip back home. It was normal. But the noise remains and I also lost oil (almost 2 quarts).....I noticed this when I changed my oil after I came back home.
I dont want to put too much money in the van if engine will die on me. I already changed its ATF 3 times, and put in a transmission cooler and also replaced the rear shocks
How can I tell if engine is bad? I did what you suggested also and jacked the front end up and spun the wheels...putting hand on coil springs. No sound and wheel spins fine.
Your advice would be appreciated.
I had a fuel induction service done when I had the dealer replace PCV valve also. I will do what you suggested. Thank you.
