I have a 2007 Honda Accord, EXL,V6, 4Dr. So far, I have driven it approx 3000 miles. Problem, while in stop position, gear in drive and foot on brake, tried to shift gear to neutral, reverse or park, at this time, the engine
reves up to approx 40 RPMs, after completing the shift, engine goes back
down to normal. Problem then disappears. This happens approx 10 times
since July 07 when car was purchased. In August 07, car was checked
(test drive by dealer and found no code lights that came on). On Sept 23,
2008, again car brought in to have dealer check. As per dealer, cannot
get problem to happen, they checked service bulletins and found no similiar
symptoms. Car returned without any repairs. What can I do? Does it sound serious? Thank you...

Re: Don't know what is causing the problem.
Hi these boxes have always had problems they have said they cured them i suspect you will find that if you bought the car and have taken it back a month later its the garages responserbility to fix the problem at there expence if the garage refuses then get in touch with honda themseleves and insist they put it right as you will find there is factory recalls on these boxes of that year i cannot remember off the top of my head what they changed to repair the problem but it wasn,t a complete box i think it was the clutch solenoids but am not sure do a bit of digging i think you will find i am correct on the factory recalls yates210456

When was the last time your brakes where replaced. Your rims can get hot sometimes even on short trips depending on how often you need to use your brakes. But if your pads are low and "burning up" you may want to look into getting them replaced before they cause rotor damage. You will also loose braking performance and loose stopping power.
That transaxle has long been a problem for Honda & they have NEVER really properly engineered it to be free of defects Unfortunately. I had a similar problem at around 66,000 miles with my V6 Accord EXL Coupe & at that time Honda did the right thing and repaired the transmission but made me pay for the labor (a fair yet semi-expensive) fix but reasonable. Then more recently around 152,400 miles the transmission failed again & began slipping. I had asked for Honda to do another fix of the transmission & I pay for the labor BUT they refused. I find it sad when a major company does not stand behind a product they know has had defects & issues throughout the entire product line of the V6 Accord & Odyssey (which use the same transaxle) & instead states from the warranty booklet (which I understand but think a Honda vehicle should last for several hundred thousand miles) especially when the owner followed & follows all of the recommended preventative maintenance in the service handbook from Honda...especially when the car looks like it is brand new & now it has a New Transmission too...no thanks to Honda corporate :)
Yes, I have a thought: Change Honda service technician, then change Honda Service Center. Not only does your car have this feature, my '06 Accord EX-L does as well.
I had a similar experience with my wife's Acura TL, and all it took to get it fixed was to speak with a different Service Advisor. They took care of the problem immediately and apologized many times.
Hope this helps...
You will probably be ok for a while if you tow it, fix the leak, and change the fluid and filter. Honda makes a pretty tough transmission. Depending on how much destroyed clutch material is in the pan when you change fluid will detrimine how long it will last. Make sure yu use the correct fluid in it. Wish you the best. Hope this helps, and please rate me highly.
