Q: Changing reare valve cover on a 2010 Honda Odyssey

asked by on

How do I take the rear valve cover off the 2010 Honda Odyssey. I cannot slide under there, under rear valve.

Unfortunately on those terrible designs, you are going to have to pull the intake manifold off to get to that. There is no other way. If you are uncomfortable with this, have a certified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, inspect the issue and replace your rear valve cover for you if needed.
