This transmission have shift solenoids that are mounted on the outside in my personal experience I have rectified shift problem with these transmissions by simply change a solenoid or two. My recommendation is to put this vehicle on a code scanner and find out what is at fault first. If its a solenoid just replace, they are a dealer only part and that should take care of your problem. Good Luck and thanks for using FIX YA

For the V-6 model, the dipstick is located down low on the transaxle, on the drivers side of the car, if it is low, usually 1 pint of of fluid is needed to raise from low notch to high notch. also if it appears to be dark or burnt, smells burnt, you should replace the tranaxle fluid. Good Luck!

There is a break in period on new transmissions, however it should not be shifting like you described. Shifting is controlled by sensors and solenoids, it is the clutch disks and friction plates that need to be broken in. A number of things could cause a transmission to act like this. You should have them do a whole system scan and find out if there are any faults. It there are, correct them before you damage the transmission.
If it were normal for a car to shift poorly with a new transmission, Honda would never sell any new cars.
Check fluid level and color - If it is burned, take it back immediately.
