Re: 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.

yes...Sounds like the shifter points are way off...to reach that you need to remove the center console the connecter in under the shifter...the other end of the cable feeds through the dashboard and connects to the tranny from under neath...
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..
possibly 2 solutions 1. manual transmission --probably clutch fluid. find out where it is, fill it , and make sure the cap is closed exactly like you took it off. if it's not closed clompletely, pressure won't be able to build up. 2. auto trans-- transmission fluid..note there is no dipstick to check fluid.
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.
Is the tranny just hard to put into reverse? Check with mechanic and see if you need clutch adjusted. Also try pushing down on the shifter to bypass the safety. Most have to be pushed down from the top of the shifter in order to go in to reverse.
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.
