Question about 2004 Honda Accord 2.4
I have experienced a drop in my mpg. I know winter gas can cause this....and tire pressure and tune up and.....and I think my 2004 Honda Accord 2004 needs one. It has 160,000 and I bought it with 110,000 - 50,00 in a year and a half. Lots of highway driving. Never had to(?) to anything to it except regular oil changes. In the past 3-4 weeks mpg dropped from 30-31 to 27-28 AND it seems my transmission is not revving up....it wont drop down as usual after 40mph or so. I can watch the tachometer and see rpm hovering at 2000. It never revs that high at 40 -50....rather it always drops down after a few seconds. Because its cold? It does it way too long in my experience. So, it seems the lower mpg IS related to the transmission because I see the results on the tachometer. Help?
I would get ride of it
No reason to even discuss all the possible issues
The trans sounds as though it is slipping
Not worth putting any money into,not at the kind of
mileage your putting on
Your better to lease a new one

Quick and easy attempt to fix might be to try some fuel injector cleaner,the purple bottle stuff I put in, is only about $3 a bottle, and seems to eliminate similiar symptoms brought on by bad gas.

i'am no expert on this car, but i would chk. the T.P.S. (throutle positioning sensor) there also may be carbon build up on throutle butterfly, not letting it close completely when you take your foot off the pedel.
