Honda Accord 2003 - transmission problem

I noticed that the car jerks anytime the gear changes from 1 to 2, especialy when am on low speed. At this time, the shift will not be smooth, it will take longer to change to the next gear. i observe that the problem normally start after about 15mins of driving. I also observed that if i try to change the gear from 'drive' to ''R' when the problem is on, the change will be characterised with ****. But immediately i switch off the ignition and start the car again, the problem will disappear and the car will drive well for about 15 to 30min before it start again. i have done transmission oil chage severally and even have one of the gear switch cleaned (it stopped the problem for 2 wks) Please help me.

Question 1. My 2003 Honda accord vibrates especially when the AC is on and its on drive or neutral gear, but it does not vibrate/shake when its in motion.


Hello,
It sounds as if your Automatic Transmission is having issues. The first thing to do is check the Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF). This is covered in the Owner's Manual (should be in your glovebox??).

If the level is low, it will cause issues. Your ATF should be serviced every 30,000 miles.

I bought honda accord recently 2004 model. Everything working fine. Cruise control and all electronics working fine. But it jerk in first and second gear then it pick up the power. When i want to speedup...


This problem is caused by disparity between Vehicle speed and Transmission RPM preset for that speed. Transmission automatically shifts gears smoothly when car reaches a preset speed, set by the manufacturer. If either the shift solenoid is not responding or the Transmission is slipping JERK will be experienced. First check fluid levels and change fluid if it has not been changed in the last 45,000 miles. Since you just bought the car you have no knowledge. Do not do Transmission flush if you have over 100,000 miles. Only do drain and fill with Honda Fluid. Only Drain and fill is recommended so as not to wash away/disturb the friction material by power flushing. During drain and fill add a bottle of Torgue multiplier fluid available in Auto part stores. If this does not work then take it to a Transmission shop for them to diagnose.

My 2003 accord jerks when you want to suddenly accelerate


So, when you punch the gas, the transmission shifts gears, and jerks when shifting? If it's a rough shift, first check your transmission fluid for proper level and condition. It should be a good pink color. Dark brown or dirty fluid with a stinky burnt odor is an indication your fluid needs draining and replacing. Actually, most manufacturers recommend replacing fluid and transmission filter every 2 years, or about every 60,000 miles, for longer life of the transmission.
I hope this helps your problem. Good luck.

Hey, I drive a Honda Accord 2006. When I am driving and low speed or at a stop sign the car starts jerking, do you know why that is?


Assuming it is a manual transmission, the clutch might be playing up. If it is Auto transimssion then the governer is needing attention. Best to go to a transmission specdalist.
