Try having the gearbox oil changed and filter in the box if it has one, this is a cheap way to start fault finding. and take it from there.

Automatic Transmition Shifting Problem when Engine is cold


The auto was notorious for clutch pack failure. Tolerances were tight in the inner workings and this caused inadequate oil flow and poor cooling. Sooner or later the auto transmissions fail. You could have the transmission rebuilt but that will cost a bit to do it so it wont break again. I might recomend going back to honda atf and changing the fluid again. If that does not work try an additive oil for the transmission. I had some sucess with the recomend product.

last resort, have it swapped to a manual transmission. This is a cheap alternative as f series transmissions from the accord can bolt up to the h22 and can be found cheap at the expense of higher gear ratios.

The transmission of my A4 2.4 Audi does not shift. I replaced the gearbox speed sensor. However, I experienced the same symptoms after 30 miles driving. Please your assistance is highly appreciated.


Make sure you have sufficient gear oil (ATF) in the transmission, an Auto box uses oil pressure to shift gears. Often after the trasnsission has been removed and re fitted it will work out all the air within the first test drive thus the oil level drops too low to shift gears.
