Cool New Here

Hey, yes I'm new. I have an Odyssey that will drop to 3 cylinders and it's supposed to help. Anyone else think that is a bunch of bologna?? It has some serious power (Not your typical van) but I know I could/should be getting a little better mileage. I have been working on stops and take-offs and they are getting better. But not seeing any improvement. Any pointers

Welcome. I believe those displacement-on-demand systems can work under the right circumstances.

Take a look at the intro threads stickied at the top of the various sub-forums, and look at this thread specifically about automatic transmissions...

Kewl. I'd be curious to hear more about your car. What kind of mileage are you getting presently?
