My 92 Honda Accord LX was having the same problem, after replacing the the fuel filter, spark plugs, wires and distributor cap and rotor. My engine light was on and I had the car computer read to determine what was exactly wrong, the reading was 100% accurate and I changed the part that was needed myself and the car has been performing past 40mph.

Sounds like 2nd gear in the transmission is slipping. Cars usually shift at 15-20 mph from first to 2nd. First check the trans fluid.

Car won't start & leaking lots of some kind of fluid


The computer stopped the car to prevent you driving it and destroying the engine. So you will not be able to restart it until the problem is fixed.

Have you checked any of the following:
== engine oil level
== radiator coolant level
== if its an auto trans, the auto transmission fluid level.

Drop a white tissue into the fluid the car is dropping. Is it watery or oily and what colour is it.

Do you have a check vechile light or a check eng. light on? If so have the codes checked out. If not, did you try changing the fluid and filter?
The kit is usually pretty cheap, but if you do this remember to buy some transmission sealer/ lube. Add it to the transmission oil. I would add it about half way when filling the oil back up.

that really sounds like you need to verify the level of the trans-axle oil and/or the transmission oil. if you are unsure, or if you didnt perform the change of the oil at the required intervals, you should stop in a pep boys, jeffy lube or similar store and have the fluid levels check.

the transmission oil is easy to check with a dip stick in the engine (not the same to the engine oil), and the trans-axle oil, you will have to remove a bolt in the axle and check with your finger if it is in level.

When I accelerate it does a fluctuation in gears...the rpm goes up and down...even when im driving at 40 mph it shifts then it hesitates at that speed..could it be the throttle sensor is dirty?


Is the "check engine" light on??? to isolate your problem have you tried MANUALLY shifting the trans (automatic) and still doing it?? check the fluid level and condition of the oil...sound more like the trans is slipping...the "TP" sensor will effect the engine and trans.But not cause over-reving......hope this helps...GL

After getting small amt of transmission fluid in gas car rain bad


Don't even want to know how you accomplished this! The Problem is that the Oil from the Tranny Fluid has gotten into the Fuel injection sytem. Get some B12-Chemtool from Wal-Mart or and Auto Parts store, Pour this into the gas tank and let it run for a while, Should get it done for Ya!

Have the vehicle scanned for diagnostic trouble codes,and repair any codes.More than likely the trans needs a rebuild.If the fluid smelled burnt,then obviously clutches or bands are burnt inside the trans.Changing the fluid just got rid of the smell,whatever is burnt is still hurnt.It is best to stop driving the vehicle,as continuing to drive it will just cause more damage to whatever is damaged.Those transmissions are prone to pump problems too.
