I have a 1995 Honda Odyssey that broke a timing belt when I was coming to a stop. I replaced the water pump and timing belts. I am certain that I have the timing marks lined up correct. The engine will start and as long as I keep my foot on the gas it will run. I can rev it up and put it into drive it will run great between 30-50 mph. Anything over 50 it seems like it misfires. Anything under 30 it wants to stall unless I keep my foot on the pedal. I hear that this is an interference engine. Is this a sign of a bigger problem or am I over looking something?

Hi zaffelalexin,

There are 2 possibilities that I can think of.

1. The timing belt has been installed out of position.
2. When the belt broke, the valves could have been damaged.

Recheck the timing belt installation and if confirmed to be correct, check the valve clearances. Any excessive clearances means that valve is bent and not closing well.
