Honda will recall 886,815 Odysseys that were manufactured from June 23, 2004 through September 4, 2010 due to a fuel pump defect. The fuel pump strainer installed may deteriorate over time.

The required parts to fix the defect are currently not available. Honda will notify owners with an interim letter during April 2014. A second notice will be mailed to owners when the remedy becomes available, currently expected to be during the summer of 2014. Any vehicles that are currently leaking from the fuel pump cover will get a replacement, original cover. All vehicles, including those receiving the interim repair, will get an improved cover when they are available. Owners may contact Honda at 1-800-999-1009. The recall numbers associated with this campaign are JD9 (inspection and/or preliminary part replacement) and JE0 (final parts replacement).
This is not the first problem Honda has had with the Odyssey. In November 2013, Honda recalled 344,000 2007 and 2008 model year Odysseys due to a computer sensor issue that caused the vehicle to brake on its own.
