Weird fix of the month – A first-time client was referred to us for our diagnostic abilities. His Odyssey was giving him grief with a reoccurring check engine lamp and the same evaporative system trouble codes. After 3 (or more) visits to the dealer (some of which included payment, I am told), we diagnosed this vehicle.
A spider had found a home in a plastic vent fitting located inside the frame. The spider had woven several webs inside the fitting. You can see at least five separate webs inside the plastic fitting. These caused enough of a vapor flow restriction to keep setting trouble codes. The spider is gone, and so is the problem.
We employ some of the brightest diagnosticians in the area. Bring it on!
