This problem started when the time belt was changed when the car reached the 70,000 mileage. I want to know if a timing problem could make the transmission problem aforementioned.

Check transmission fluid level to make sure its not LOW. Remember checking fluid make sure vehicle is warm and sitting on a flat surface and vehicle is running. If LOW just add fluid and that should take care of problem. If NOT it may be that the timing belt was not set 100% on timing may be a little retarded or this problem may be coincidental and not even related to the job that was done and tranny may be going bad. Good Luck and contact if you need more help. Thanks for using FIX YA

When did you last change the timing belt? If the belt slipped a tooth it could cause your issue. I would do a compression test of all cylinders to see if they are good. Any major variation would indicate a possible timing belt slip. Be advised that this is an interference engine and if the belts breaks or slips too far, valve or piston damage can occur.

There is no automatic time to change the belt..it depends on the type driving..I.E stop start jack rabbit city driving verses road miles etc. it can be a costly to replace .Most cars have inspection covers to take a look at the Belt wear and Condition of the drive teeth of the belt...Take your vehicle to a respectable garage and get them inspected..will cost but only a fraction of replacement..if needed the make your decision..up to your..good luck..

SEEMS LIKE TRANSMISSION FLUID LOW.TRANSMISSION SLIPPING TRYING TO GO IN DRIVE.CHECK TRANSMISSION FLUID LEVEL. IF LOW ADD FLUID UNTIL YOU REACH FULL MARK ON TRANSMISSION DIP STICK. WITH ENGINE RUNNING A IN OPERATING TEMPERATURE.IF FLUID LEVEL OKAY.CHANGE TRANSMISSION FLUID AND FILTER IF YOU HAVE NOT CHANGED IN A LONG WHILE.A DIRTY STOPPED UP FILTER WILL CAUSE TRANSMISSION TO SLIP.CANT PICK UP FLUID.

I have a 2000 Honda Accord- just hit 100,000. I know I should change the timing belt but I don't drive real far and can't afford it. What other things really MUST be done at 100,000?


IF YOU ARE SURE YOUR CAR HAS A TIMING BELT, IT SHOULD BE CHANGED ABOUT EVERY 60,000 OR 70,000 MILES IF YOU WAIT 'TIL IT BREAKS YOU WILL BE SORRY. IT COULD CAUSE MAJOR ENGINE DAMAGE, & MAJOR EXPENSES. GET THE BELT CHANGED

Transmission shifts between overdrive and third at


When the trans is cold it will shift almost normal as of now. If you keep driving it it will eventually slip when its cold. This is caused by worn out clutch plates
Your trans needs to be overhauled with a clutch rebuild kit
