I change my transmission in 1997 honda civic freio I change the cvt to a manual transmission andengine check light stay on what could cause that to happen


Check engine lights report faults in engine AND gear box(auto). If you have changed from an auto to manual gear box then the sensor system for the gearbox is recording a massive fault with the gearbox that you have to check out. Talk wit an accredited auto electrician as to how to neutralise the system so that the light only checks out the engine.

Speed odometer won't work and transmission won't change gears


You probably have a check engine light staying on too. My first guess would be the speed sensor on the transmission but I would check for trouble codes first.

Auto Transmission problem: Feels like it doesnt shift into OD and accelerates slow as if it stays in one gear. When put in 1st, it feels like the park brake is up of you're riding the brakes.


have you check the oil level on trans and have you change the oil on the engine lately check the levels on both. Usually on engine is too much oil car drags and on trans if low oil it usually stays in gear to protect the trans. your car is telling you check oil. No lubrication some warning lights do not come up for trans

Twice the engine light has remained on when fired up and the trans. has stuck in first gear for several miles then light clicked out, gears changed then worked perfectly


If the "check engine" light is coming on, there is a code, even though the light goes off, the code should be stored. If it stays in 1st gear I'm guessing you may have a stuck shift solenoid. Have you had the trany fluid changed lately, is it full of fluid? Check the fluid with vehicle in "park" on level ground, with the engine idling, it's best to do this at operating temperature. The manufacturers usually recomend changing the fluid and filter every 30,000 miles. It could be something else too the transmission shifting is controled by the computer. The computer gathers information from various sensors on the vehicle and tells the transmission when to shift. I guess I would get it to a shop and have the codes read to find out what is going on before you have major trany problems. It could be the vehicle speed sensor, throttle position sensor, mass air flow sensor, coolant sensor, etc. Good luck.

What you need to check is the transmission release bearing because if there is a clearance on the release bearing you will encounter this problem and also check the transmission oil.

Check the condition of the tranny oil on the dipstick. If it's black and smelly, the tranny clutches might be worn out. Make sure you have enough fluid in there first. Check the fluid with the car engine running and the tranny in park. The level should be between the 2 marks.
