Engine problem
2003 Honda Odyssey Engine Size unknown Wheel Drive Type unknown Automatic 60,000 miles

I live in South Korea and I took my van to the mechanic here on the Aif force base that we live on and the mechanic said that I needed an idle speed control module. I am not able to locate a part by this name for a honda odyssey. My van revs up all by itself when it is sitting idle or if I am driving at slower speeds through the neighborhood. Can you help me with the name of the part so that I can get it shipped here. No one works on Hondas here in Korea, so therefore they have no parts for them either. Please help!

Do you have a check engine light or has flashed? If so get it read and comeback with the code/s.

Aim high-Okay Osan AFB-your lucky you have a POV where am at is up on the Freedom Bridge 1974 they called us Manchus-1st Bn 9th Inf/2nd Inf Div

Okay Sarge-here's the scoop-the device you're trying to identify is the Idle air control valve-its purpose is to maintain the idle speed at all times

When looking at it from the front of the vehicle its on the right and also the throttle position sensor is behind it-this to can cause your problem-could have a weak spot on it or out of range.

Good Luck Freedom Fighter 2carpros. Com supports the troops-Keep your head down-you hea!

My ck engine light was on but the mechanic reset it when he cked out the van. I called to see if he had the code but he said no. When it comes back on I can go and get it read again. But I would rather order the part so it can be on its way here. We have twins that are 11 months and a 10 year old so this is our only means of travel. The taxi's are almost impossible to travel in with 4 people and strollers and car seats. What do you suggest that we do. Can this problem wait or should I order the control valve? I really can't afford to have a break down. Thanks for your quick response.

It might just be varnish/debris in there-Go for it

Lets get in there and remove it and try cleaning it up real good also the little air bypass holes/might also want to clean out the throttle body plate.

Don't forget the throttle position sensor behind it.

In the event it doesn't work by cleaning it -this the time you should order it.
