SOURCE: I have a 1990 Acura

I am very excited because I have the same problem and thought it was transmission but went to my mechanic today and he found that some computers were giving codes on my car. One computer module is under Right Passenger seat, turn key on but do not start car and read how many times that light flashes, then ask mechanice to tell you what the code means. In my case what is causing the tranny to slip is the need for a new speed sensor control module. So, you may just need one of those too instead of a new tranny. !!!! Since my Legend was flashing a code 15, my mechanic pulled the fuse that you are supposed to pull when this 15 code comes up and hold it out of fuel box for 10 seconds and then put it back in. This reset the computer and then it showed no code, (no flashing light.) He told me to drive it for awhile and then check again to see if a code was flashing. If nothing flashes then you are OK. If it does flash, count number of times it flashes and tell the mechanic. If the light flashes, it means it is a "code". If it flashes 15 times it is a speed control sensor messing up the transmission capability and just needs the speed control sensor replaced!!
He also checked a computer under the rug of the passenger side dashboard under the glove box. It was flashing a 2, (2X). He pulled the fuse that corresponds to that and held it out for 10 seconds to reset it, and now it does not flash, ie shows no code, so that is fine. But check those 2 computers on your Acura to see if it is giving you flashing light in either of them, and if so, count how many times it flashes, and then you will know if it is really the transmission.

My car runs a HECK of a lot better now that he reset the codes. I think something got "off" when my alternator was replaced and they had to be reset.

I am thrilled I won't have to replace transmission!!

SOURCE: Car starts poorly during cold mornings. The idle

Sounds like a cold start valve (which is actually an additional injector in the intake to assist in cold starting) If you can get it to your local prts store while the light is on they will read the codes for free and tell you what the car thinks is amiss.

SOURCE: Twice in the lasts couple

sounds like you have a piston sticking or a pluged filter if transmission is not serviced at a regular basis servicing it when it starts to have issues may make it worse does the fluid appear red or dark does it smell burnt and make sure to use the correct fluid because they are not all the same

1996 Jeep Cherokee 4.0 L has trouble accelerating


often times the engine needs to warm up to normal operating temperature. this varies from makes and models. if you cant wait that long, having it idle for approximately 5 - 10 minutes should at least lessen the acceleration problem, but the longer you wait the better it will be on the engine.

Hello
The engine and automatic transmission in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM (Power Train Control Module). Whenever a problem like this or other drive-ability related problems occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM

Engine Lurching in Cold Weather on Highway


I recommend a trans fluid and filter change first. It definately sounds like the problem is in the trans. If it was any sort of engine component you would have had a check engine light on.

Automatic Transmission shifts late and rough after warm


If it has over 60000 miles it may need a transmission service, which includes a filter and fluid change, fluid may look fine but if filter is clogged and not picking up fluid fast enough when u give it gas the pump spins faster and forces fluid thru to shift, more fluid is needed to shift into higher gear.than to drive
