    You can start in park and shift to drive ok but when you try to put in reverse it makes a loud grindin noise as if a spline or gear has been stripped

    I think you need to check the gear oil. You might have an indicator in the dash board but in some cases this is in the engine compartment. try not to use the reverse as much as possible as the grinding noise is not a good sign. This means that the actual gears are roughly rubbing against each other and that is not very healthy for a gear box.

    If it's grinding while you're driving, and it's not your brake pads metal to metal on your rotors, check the axle. Lift both front wheels off the ground (Hondas are front wheel drive); leave parking brake on, then shift to first gear and allow it to spin and have someone listen by the wheels where they spin. I took both front tires off and listened and discovered that it was my right front axle that fits right into the transmission gear box making all that grinding noise, I replaced the right front axle and the noise has completely stopped, car runs fine!

An automatic transmission for your car has clutch packs that help it go into gears they can go out and cause this exact problem purchase a new clutch pack or used if you like and replace it make sure its the reverse clutch pack they are located on the front of your transmission. heres a place you might try for a used one: Peach street auto 18003651341 or try the dealer! but be advised it may be the actual gears then you will need a new transmission or used one Peach street should be able to get one to you cheap! with rebuilding its usually cheaper or the same price for a used one.

Ok, since this does not happen in all the gears but in just one gear then it must be something with the clutch. you might need some expert inspection on this so as not to undergo unnecessary expenses.

I have a 91 honda accord with an automatic trans. & when i shift into reverse it refuses to engage & makes a high pitch gear slipping grinding sound ! NOT GOOD ! ,I just replaced the transmission con


Definitely not good. The transmission is slipping internally due to worn gears and clutch packs. It will have to come out for rebuilding, IMO. Have a transmission shop check it out.
Good luck.

1984 Honda Accord Transmission Grinding


I would recommend you take it to 3 different repair shops to get quotes on the cost of repairs.
Sounds internal to me .
Automatic transmissions are best left to the Pro's to fix , You need alot of tools and a very very very clean workshop for starters.
Hope this helps , Sorry I couldn't offer a quick fix.
