Question about 1991 Honda Accord

1 Answer

I only have 2nd and 3rd gear in my 1991 honda accord lx

I got this car for really cheap when I was in a bind, it ran fine but ever since I've had it I only have 2nd and 3rd gear (it's an automatic by the way). I'm not sure where to start on troubleshooting this problem so I'm just seeing if anyone has had this problem and can tell me how to fix it?

Sounds to me like the shift solenoids on the transmission are bad or need to be cleaned up. They are located on the outside of the transmission case, on the front, straight below where the distributor is. They are in pairs and bolted to the tranny by two or three #10 bolts. There are two pairs on the tranny.You can try cleaning the screens on them or worst case, you may have to replace them to get the tranny to shift normally again.

SOURCE: Honda Removal of factory radio 1991 Accord lx

start by removing the console. there should be four screws that hold it in; two on each side; one in the front and one in the rear. you may have to take the gearshift knob of if the car is manual trans.then, remove the ash tray. there are two screws at the front of the ashtray receiver and one at the back.with the ashtray and slide removed, take the bezel off of the radio. there should be two screws behind or above the air outlet vents on top andn two screws in the under the center dividing rail. you may have to pop out the air outlets to get to the screws. there may also be a screw at the bottom of the bezel in the center.with the bezel removed the only thing that holds the radio in at that point is two screws that come up from underneath where the ashtray receiver was. take out those two screws and the radio should pull out from the front. Be sure to disconnect the antenna lead and the connector from the back of the radio before pulling on it too hard or you'll damage one or the other.hope that helps

SOURCE: 1991 Honda Accord LX Cruise control doesn't work

Does your speedometer work properly? if not, check your speed sensor. Many times the connection to your speed sensor may be left disconnected especially after clutch replacement.

Have you mistakenly push the "sport"button at the gear shift knob? Because if you do so, the S ligh will stay on.

I have a 1993 Honda Accord Lx I just got with no manual . Which gear is for driving?


D4 is where you want to spend most of your time as this is the overdrive gear. About the only time you will need to run in D3 is if you are climbing steep grades or, if equipped with a tow kit, pulling a load.

Common problem with 92, 93 Honda accords. Shifting problems - get a used TCU unit from junk yard and replace yours. It should be under where the passenger side where they put their feet, pull the carpet back, you should see it. Easily replaced.

No, those sensors are seperate from transmission, should be a solenoid that is electrically controlled inside the transmission that controls the shifting.

Larry, you really need to take it to a trasnsmission shop and find out what the trouble codes are, but it seems as though you have a burned up transmission. Thanks and good luck with your repair.
