Question about 2005 Acura TSX
My transmission slips every morning. I just had the fluids changed and even after allowing the car to warm up properly it'll slip throughout every gear. The revs go up but there's no response of the car accelerating along with the rpms. I wonder if there's any chance of it being a simple fix before I head to the dealership and spend an arm, leg, and neck on replacing the transmission.

There is a good chance that it could be a bad shift solenoid or a valve body problem. These electronically shifted trans use little electronic valves to control fluid flow and pressure in order to engage 1,2,D, R. Just because it doesn't move when shifted into gear doesnt mean it's totally shot. It very well could be something simple. Also these electronic transmissions can be hooked up to a diagnostic computer and tested without having to pull the trans first. So I second Lawrence's post, take it to a trans shop with good tech. Not backyard Joe. Tell them you need it diagnosed first. Backyard Joe will just assume it needs to be rebuilt.

You can get the transmission rebuilt. Look for a local transmission repair shop. It's much cheaper that way.

There is no way to check the fluid level short of removing and disassembling it.. The 96 slx tranny is a sealed system.

tranny slips can also mean that you may need to change the tranny filter. But just like cooking oil at first it is thick then you add heat and it gets thinner, same for tranny oil which could also mean that your tranny needs gear and plate work. The easiest way to find out is to insert the oil dip stick, clean it with a paper towel and check to see if you can see metal shivers or if the color of the tranny oil is not red but silverish, these are usually indictative of a tranny that needs an overhaul. hope this helps.
Good Luck =)

You can have the clutch and the pressure plate checked. If it is an automatic tranny you may try to drain the fluid and have it replaced or have the solenoid cleaned out or checked. The solenoid controls the hydraulic pressure to the clutch

Could be one of a few sensors, Throttle position sensor, intake air temperature sensor, or maybe MAF sensor to name a few. Probably your best bet & cheapest would be to stop at an Autozone, Pep Boys or another big autoparts seller & they will usually scan for codes & just see if any come up before replacing parts on a guess.
