Question about 1998 Honda Civic

1 Answer

Should I or not replace transmission in a 98 honda civic?

Last night, while I was at the road, my car just stopped responding to the accelerator. On the middle of the road, I had to turn the ignition off and turn it back on. After doing that, the car drove for another 2-3 mins before not responding to change in acclerator again.I had to turn the ignition off and back on again just to give it a shot if it drives.Nope it wont. This morning I called the mechanic and he pointed out transmission problem.

My question is, is it worth to spend $1500-2000 for a new transmission in a $3400 worth car. Should I dump the car. Should I replace it with a used transmission( from Junkyard or somewhere) for around $1000 or less. Not sure which is the best option.

98 Honda Civic HX sputters when accelerating. Feels bogged down and lacking power.


Time for the dealer to take a look. You need special skill and special tools to diagnose this not to mention years of experience with electronic engine control systems.

Honda civic 1992, rpm problem


It sounds like the A/C compressor may need to be replaced as it sounds like it is bogging down the engine more than it should. This is not so noticable at higher engine speeds.

Acceleration lazy in 2nd gear


Try chaecking the tranny fluid to make sure it's at optimal level. After that if it still has issues, Try getting your clutch and gear plates checked. If it's an automatic have your Torque converter checked for poor connection.
