Having problems with your 1997 Honda Odyssey ?
1997 ODYSSEY AUTO TRANS SHIFTS HARD BETWEEN 1st & 2nd, 2nd & 3rd
\015 Mostly in slow freeway traffic with speeds ranging fron 8-35 mph up and down. Honda trans fliud replaced 3 months ago. Shifts less hard in normal driving. Is there a adjustment screw on the trans similar to some other auto transmissions that adjust for a smoother shift between gears? Thanks for any help.\015\012Chuck\015
I have the same problem with my 97 Odyssey. Replaced the front engine mount which was broken with change. It will shift fine if under load but if you let off the gas pedal when it is shifting into high gear, it will really shift hard, almost **** your head back, and make a clunk noise like a bad universal joint on an old truck. I've replaced both axles and I've flushed the transmission 4 times, using Honda trans fluid. I've also tried adjusting the trans. cable in every position imaginable. Nothing seems to make a change at all. Not sure what the heck is causing this problem but it is very unnerving thinking it will damage the transmission. This has got to be something fairly simple. It shifts fine under load with the gas pedal depressed. Let off the gas pedal and let it shift coasting and it will make you think the trans. is going to drop out or brake an axle. Any help is appreciated.
It has nothing to do with the transmission, it's your engine mount thats bad.
