Question about 1999 Honda Accord
My husband owns a 1999 Honda Accord, automatic transmission. When I recently started driving it, he warned me about a little "problem" that it has: when I put the car in Reverse to back out of a driveway, parking space, etc., the car will begin moving backward then stop - as if the engine power is no longer moving the transmission. I shift to neutral then back to reverse, and it moves again. Sometimes I must shift from neutral to reverse 3-5 times just to back completely out of a parking space. It does NOT seem to happen during the first drive of the day - that is, after the car has sat idle all night. Mechanics have thrown up their hands. The local transmission repair chain offered to diagnose the problem - for $700!! Any thoughts?
Sounds like the car is just slipping out of gear. Keep your hand on the shifter when you back up next time. See if you can feel the shifter move when the car comes out of gear. If the shifter moves up when it happens keep pressure on the shifter holding it back like you dont want it to move forward. And of course if the shifter moves back when it comes out of gear, put forward pressure on the shifter so it doesnt slip out. This might work for now but but i know i wouldnt want to spen 700 for that ****. Let me know how it goes.
