Question about Cars & Trucks
I have a Honda accord ex 1998 4cyl
The problem is while im driving the gears do not shift
For example on take off it jerks from gear 1 to 2 between shifts it feels like it throws itself in to Neutral and the RPMS jump to 2 or 3 and jolts into the appropiate gear and when going to gear 2 to 3 it does an even higher jerk and high RPM with Neutral feeling but on gear 3 it hesitates
then it catches gear 3 but right after slips to gear 1 and im going 40Mph with 4 RPM
I did a flush , fresh ATF , i can go in reverse fine , checked the solenoid lock/A and B they clicked okay
Everytime I drain a little oil and take it for a test drive it works like nothing happened but after 5 minutes of continious driving it starts slipping again
D4 light was on and gave me code : 41
Four long flashes One short flash
The clutch lining worn out n the lining powder stuck on the transmission filter so transmission fluid pass through the filter clogged.. Only way is to repair the transmission or replace the whole transmission.

I have a 1998 Civic HX 2DR as well and mine also takes a moment to engage when you press the gas. I don't know if this is normal or not? I just bought the car and I need to replace the trans fluid only because I don’t know if there is Honda oil or another brand in it. The CVT transmissions only can use Honda's CVT oil. There is a recommend alternative oil but based on the manual it’s only for temporary use until you can replace it with the Honda oil otherwise it will cause damage to the transmission over time.

SOURCE: Not shifting in 3 or 4 gear
What is is causing this is a faulty, damaged, or otherwise inoperative TCU or Transmission Control Unit. Very simple fix that most anyone can do with a proper diagram. If you are able to get hold of a graphic diagram you simply have to disconnect the battery, take out the two plugs that plug into the bottom of the computer, and replace the unit. If you are going to do this yourself I would advise spoending a very small amount and purchase a "Memory saver" so that you will not have to worry too much about the car having to "Relearn" itself. you can usually pick a decent TCU from a junk yard for anywhere between $50-$125.
Good luck and hope this helps.
