First thing to check is the transmission fluid, if the problem does not go replacing the fluid, then on a manual transmission you need to replace the transmission.
On an automatic transmission can be a problem with the control module or with a defective sensor.

Hi Haresh, It help to know if we're talking about automatic or manual? If it is the the select without clutch it would be a good idea to check the fluid levels. For auto or semi auto have the filter replaced inside the gearbox. If it is manual, have the clutch adjustment checked. Regards John

When should i change the timing belt on my grand vitara there is 46000 kl/m on the clock,and also how often should i change the engine oil.

For most all timing belts, the 100,000 mile marker is when the belt should be changed. The belts are designed to work for 100+ thousand miles, but recommended checking/changing is at 100K miles.

Prelude 2.2 vti W reg auto automatic tiptronic gearbox slipping

Hi there. Although the Dealer has changed the oil, did they do a 'Stall Test' whilst the gearbox was cold and again when at normal running temperture? If not, that's what they must do firstly. This will identify whether you have a slipping clutch/s. The Honda autobox also includes what is known as accumulators - these control how each clutch is engaged during acceleration. For example, if you are accelerating slighly/smoothly, you want each gear to be engaged gently and smoothly, whereas, when accelerating hard, you need the gear engaged quickly and hard to aviod clutch slippage. Thus, the fact that you are experiencing a hard engagement might mean that an accumulator/s is seized. If that's the case, it will mean that the autobox will need stripping, cleaning and be checked for worn components. Hope this helps, Scottech.

Auto Gear does not change smoothly

I think he's referring to the valve body which is the hydraulic part of the gearbox assembly. Can only replace it.
