Hello Longhorn,
Thank you for choosing FixYa.com for your answer Im David.

Depending on whether you have a automatic or a manual shift there are a few things that may cause your troubles. If you have a automatic transmission check your fluid level make sure its full it could also be your transmission filter It may be dirty if there is alot of miles on it. there are quite a few things that could cause it from vacume lines to sensors my advice is to check the fluid level if that looks good I would take it to your local garage and have it hooked on a computer to check for vacume leaks sensor troubles etc..before you go spending alot on parts you probally do not need.

My 1990 honda accord for some time has had the s(green) light blinking off and on, had it is solid S green and it seems as it won't shift gears, I don't have power like before? what happened?


The flashing s light means a transmission problem. The transmission computer is under the carpet on passenger side under where you put your feet. Pull down the carpet to see the diagnostic light. Turn on the key to count the flashes to get the code. Pulll a list of codes from the internet.
If your trans shifts properly if you manually shift it thru the gears, going from D1, D2 D3 but feels like it is starting in second when in drive at a stop, the computer is probably the issue, and can be repaired or exchanged for a good computer, lots of companies do this ,find 1 on the internet.

Car doesn't change gear when cold


Most likely the tranmission seals are getting old and are not very pliable when cold and so will not allow the shift. The transmission should be rebuilt which would give it new seals and therefore shift. There are some additives at the local parts store that will soften the seals and in some cases make the transmission shift. Autozone, Advance auto and most part stores will have something for that.

92 Honda Accord, 5 speed, hard shifting into first & second gear.


First thing to do,try to pump your clutch before you shift into 1st gear then if you feel makes better, most probably you have problem with your hydraulic clutch system, check the clutch line if there is an evidence of fluid leaking or it could be internal leak.

Second thing to do, check your transmission oil, may be it' s too old or you use a thick oil thats why when cold its hard to shift then when the engine rich the normal temperature(warm) the oil become thin and the shifting will smooth. Remember the very old oil become thicken and the purity is gone and can cause of hard shifting. in this regards i suggest you to change the transmission oil and check the used oil if there is small peace of metals, then you are in big trouble,

1990 Honda Accord EX Transmission


possibly due to low trans fluid pressure. the cooler in the radiator may be plugged. to check, disconnect and bypass cooler with rubber line & clamps. drive 2-3 miles. shifting OK now? install auxillary cooler to bypass one in radiator. you can get one at auto-zone $30-$50. may just need fluid & filter change, but more likely it's the cooler. when they get plugged, either one, pressure drops alot.
