Question about 1998 Honda Accord
Im having a problem with my car's shifting. ive been having the same problem for about 20,000 miles. it takes a while to go from 1-2nd gear. the rpms go to about 4000 and then it finally catches. i never had a check engine light come on except for the oxygen sensor which has been changed and no more lights. i hear a whining noise. i dont know if that's the same problem or not. i actually bought it to honda and they told me that there's no problem. i found on another website something about the linear solenoid. but before i spend 200.00 i want to know what the linear solenoid does. so i can have some idea whether or not it would work. thanks
The linear solenoid is what links the gears to eachother. When you go from one gear to another it acts as a bridge to cross over without hesitating if you had to tread through the water before getting to the other side. What you might want to try first before that it to change the fluid out and the filter as well if you haven't already. (fill back up with Lucas transmission oil prefered)

On some models, like the accord, the transmission has to be disassembled to gain access to the filter, so changing the fluid may be the only means of maintenance before more costly repairs.
