95 honda accord: rpm's increased well the mph decreased

I was driving and the rpm's decreased and the speed wouldn't go over 20. later in the day the engine light came on. I took it for an oil change a few days before but doubt that has anything to do w/ it. Since the problem I took it to a shop and they said the transmission fluid was low and added to it. they also said after adding they noticed the fluid was decreasing but they don't see a leak.

    Was running fine, then all of a sudden it started having this problem. RPM's rev very high, won't accelerate (or does very very very slowly). Going up hills will decelerate....

Assuming you meant "RPMs Increased as speed decreased." This is usually referred to as a "slipping" condition in an automatic transmission. It's much like when your clutch wears out and it starts to slip. THe engine revs up and you go slower! Especially driving up hills since the load is greater on the powerplant. You should be darn sure you are full of Trans. fluid. Check it properly like your manual describes. If you are in the operating range of fliud level, your transmission is likely going out. If this sounds like your problem, take the car to a qualified service center, not the local quickie oil-change outfit, for an expert opinion.

How do I know that my toyota camry sv40 is in overdrive?


Hello, some models have an O/D indicator light on the dashboard, if it is on or the selector is set to the O/D position and it is working correctly you sill see a slight decrease of engine rpm between about 45 and 65 mph depending on throttle application, it usually drops about 300 rpm when overdrive is engaged, if the rpm stays the same as speed is increased above 50 mph the O/D is not working.

No....the rpms differ from engine to engine and from manufacturer to manufacturer. RPM's are always higher at higher speeds.

most likely torque converter problem if fluid is decreasing, but could be other problems my advice take it to a good transmission shop or the dealer, also you can if you want retrieve the code in the computer by following the instructions in the repair manual ex:haynes or chiltons for retrieving the codes from the ecu or you can buy an OBDI dianostic scanner from local parts store

Stick shift # Automatic RPM


That is normal,If you do the same speed in 4th gear the rpm's will almost double.

The rpm's will repond faster in a manual than an automatic.

In a manual the engine supplies the power required directly to the gear that you have selected thus the engine rpm's will increase or decrease as needed.

The cruise control on my 1993 Honda Accord LX, automatic 4 cylinder works sometimes and sometimes not. It worked three days ago. It wouldn't work the next day. The following day it would. Now it won't...


Sounds like possibly a safety switch associated with the brake or shifter is engaging intermittently. There is definitely one behind the brake because when you apply the brake the cruise kicks out. Try looking for this switch and check it out.
