If you have not had the transmission fluid changed/flushed that could be the problem. Alot of Honda dealerships are offering good rates on this type stuff but if you have someone else do it, make sure that it a honda recommended/compatable fluid. I had our Oddyssey transmission serviced at local honda place for only about $20 more than I could have done it. Very worth $20.

My honda 1993 wouldnot go forward , only goes reverse gear does not shift.

A common problem with 93 Honda was the TCU unit (the brain) which is located under the passenger floor board. You can go to a salvage yard and get a used one relatively cheap, a new one is very expensive. And, this is a do-it-yourself project. If I can do it, you can.

If it just started to do what you say and you have not had any grinding sounds etc. I would try this first. Personally, I now keep a spare TCU on hand, just in case for my 93 Honda.

1999 Accord Automatic Transmission issue

im so sorry to say that Honda has a bad transmission line in the 98-02 accord models.. there were severe recalls on this very matter..I only got rid of my 99 accord V6 because the shop who changed my motor mounts crushed my transmission line and blamed it on me..if you had motor mounts or timing done or serpentine belt(i forgot if it has both or just 1),then check to see if transmission line is crushed it can be seen right underneath the battery..

We just bought a 1999 ford explorer for our daughter, when taking off, sometimes the transmission appearred to hesitate in switching gears. My husband change the filter, gasket and fluid. In drive there is...

Just a guess, but it sounds like an internal valving problem (pressures inside are being mis-directed likely by valves that are not closing all the way) This can cause damage to clutches as they are fighting against each other to move the vehicle. It should be checked by a reliable transmission shop immediately. (they have the proper test equipment to determine what needs to be done...(transmissions are not "user friendly" for repairs other than filter service and external adjustments)

1999 Honda Accord Manual Transmission

I just got done putting an engine in one of these. the chances are your clutch is not releasing all the way, or you have internal damage to the transmission. you can try to bleed the clutch by having a buddy pump the clutch 30 times or so and on the last pump have them hold it down so you can open the bleeder on the slave cylinder. repeat this 6 times, going 5 pumps less each time untill you reach 0. keep plenty of replacement fluid on hand to keep the clutch master cylinder full, if that don't help even a little, I'd start suspecting the transmission itself.

Car stops moving in reverse gear

Sounds like the car is just slipping out of gear. Keep your hand on the shifter when you back up next time. See if you can feel the shifter move when the car comes out of gear. If the shifter moves up when it happens keep pressure on the shifter holding it back like you dont want it to move forward. And of course if the shifter moves back when it comes out of gear, put forward pressure on the shifter so it doesnt slip out. This might work for now but but i know i wouldnt want to spen 700 for that ****. Let me know how it goes.

Transmission on 1991 honda accord

If it drives forwards OK with no grinding noise then it is probably cable adjustment.
Unlike forward gears there is no synchronmesh on reverse therefore you need full clutch seperation. Check there is no slack in the cable at all.
