Question about 1990 Honda CRX

1 Answer

Automatic transmission over drive shifting

I have a 90 Honda Crx Dx..I put in a 40,000 used engine.. Runs great, however i have noticed that in 4th gear position it appears to have an overdrive gear. Sometime it shifts up and wont shift back into OD. ATF level good. If it shifts properly it runs 80mph at about 3600rpm. when it up shifts and locks it does 80 at 4000rpm. What can I do to ensure it runs higher speeds in this mystery OD..This is effecting my mpg.

Find someone that wants a stick shift and trade with them. You're talking too much money for the result.

Looking to buy a 1988 Honda CRX HF. Automatic Transmission. I would like to do a 5 speed swap on it. What is needed, how hard would it be, and what would it end up costing me?


-5 Speed Transmission

-Clutch/Pressure plate/Flywheel/Hardware

-Clutch cable

-Manual pedal assembly with same options as your car (Cruise control2_bing.gif for example)

-Front, side, and rear transmission mount brackets from 5 speed car, and the actual mount for the rear (Regardless of what people say, it is not needed to drop the rear x-member to do this rear mount, but if you don't have a decent set of tools, you may have to do this to get to the rear bolt.)

-Manual axles. I think auto axles will work.

-5 speed throttle cable to match the the 5 speed pedal assembly

-Auto speedo cable will work.

-Connect the 2 larger black wires that go to the shift position switch in the automatic. These wires are for the starter. In the auto car, they are only connected when the car is in nuetral or park. Solder these two wires together and heat shrink. Use a **** connector if you want to just ghetto rig it together.

-You will get a code 19 and a "check engine light". This is for the torque converter lock up solenoid on the PS9 auto ECU (For my D16A6 Motor anyway, the 1.5 may have a different auto ECU). The car will still run and drive fine, but getting the manual ECU for you car, and cutting off the auto wiring from the harness will eliminate this issue.

-You will need to ground the Green/White wire from the shift indicator switch, this indicates that the car is in "park", and will allow you to remove the ignition key. The alternative is to swap to the 5 speed ignition switch, but you may not want to end up having separate ignition, and door keys if your car currently uses one key.

I have a HF 5 Speed ecu and a few other parts to if you need them

Price is hard to tell because of price of parts and places vary to do these swaps. Shops around here will covert a auto to manual for anywhere from 500-800 bucks labor only.

Has anyone change the transmission fluid and used anything other than Honda ATF-Z1. If so, have the fluid/filter changed in this car and use only Honda Fluid. This is the only fluid that you can use in a Honda. Even if you have used the correct fluid an fluid/filter change may help. If that is not the case then I suggest you seek out a trusted professional.

1990 honda crx si transmission trouble


this is not the problem of fluid, this is a major problem of transmission. The transmission must be detached from the engine, which you cant do by yourself. the transmission can be repaired but i dont know mechanics in your do it. otherwise you have to replace the transmission.

Automatic gears


Honda transmissions,as well as most other overdrive transmissions,should be driven at all times in drive 4,or the overdrive position,with the exception of severe driving conditions,such as towing a load,extremely hilly terrain,or long uphill grades,the trans should be taken out of overdrive,and placed in the drive 3 position.This is to prevent the perpetual shifting back and forth of the trans from 3rd into 4th,back to 3rd,back to 4th,back to 3rd,that would eventually damage both the 3rd and 4th gear clutch discs and components.
