Re: honda civic 1994 automatic trans slipping when...
I would take this tranny in for a total rebuild. this tranny may be headed for a major breakdown and, slippage usually is a great sign for massive transmission failure to come, considering that, you are burning transmission fluid.

Well Katie, I don't want ruin your day, but your trans is failing. Not much you can do at this point except have it repaired/replaced. Honda's very rarely have electrical/control issues with their transmissions. Typically problems are due to a clutch pack or bearing failure, that contaminates the fluid and causes valves in the valve body to stick. Civics in particular are prone to forward clutch pack failures.
ok good question
is car and Automatic or manual shift. my wild guess is A/T tranny
my wild guess 2 is, the transmission is slipping
you see RPM rise real fast and MPH dont.
this is called slipping and will burn up the tranny if kept up.
did i guess right.
the A/T has over 200 parts and the tests are long.
and repairs, can be huge labor.
The FSM covers all this.
take car to any ASE (USA) cert . mechanic. (see patch on sleeve)
and he will drive it and tell you, in 5min whats bad
engine, or A./T
that is first. i
is it slipping,? if the rpms rise and car dont speed up , in direct proportions that is slip. is it? if the engine has full power in 1st, the the transmission is bad.
not sure what shift manually means, Drive to low? low to high. what? be exact in statements/ better stated what it does good and bad, and when. all modes. are you saying the trans shirts perfectly in AUTOMATIC when cold./?
Check the transmission fluid level and condition of the fluid. Add Automatic Transmission Fluid as needed and do not over fill. Have the transmission line pressure tested and service the transmission. "replace the transmission oil and filter" Star with that and hope the transmission is not gone to far that you may need any other transmission. Keep me posted and shop around to find a good transmission shop.
it sounds like the bands on the transmission are slipping if it is an automatic trans if it is a manual the clutch is slipping if auto take to dealer. if manual adjust the clutch cable out some it connects to the transmission with a thick cable near the bell housing tighten the cable to give it less play 3 or 4 turns
there are a few things to do b4 getting new tranny. i would first think of when the last time it was serviced was,if more than 2 or 3 years or 25000 miles since then have it serviced first for a few hundred dollars if you pay someone or about 65 if you do it.just change the filter and pan gasket and refill with appropriate fliud and amount.keep in mind this is only if you havnt drove it much since it started slipping...if it has slipped for more than a few days get a used or new one or have that rebuilt.
