Re: 92 Honda Accord, 5 speed, hard shifting into first &...
First thing to do,try to pump your clutch before you shift into 1st gear then if you feel makes better, most probably you have problem with your hydraulic clutch system, check the clutch line if there is an evidence of fluid leaking or it could be internal leak.
Second thing to do, check your transmission oil, may be it' s too old or you use a thick oil thats why when cold its hard to shift then when the engine rich the normal temperature(warm) the oil become thin and the shifting will smooth. Remember the very old oil become thicken and the purity is gone and can cause of hard shifting. in this regards i suggest you to change the transmission oil and check the used oil if there is small peace of metals, then you are in big trouble,

That is a fault indication for your transmission. I am not positive but I think that indicates a fault in your forth gear solenoid. Your transmission is not going to last very long driving it like that. When you stomp on the gas and it does not accelerate, your clutch discs are slipping and burning. It won't take much of that to ruin them. You may want to take it to a good Honda transmission place. I don't know about the older Hondas, but the newer ones don't have any provision for removing a pan and working on them. They don't even have a line replacable filter.
Check your transmission fluid dipstick. If its not a nice "bright" red color, you are probably burning up your clutches. The darker the fluid, the more contaminated it is.
i had the same thing...It's the transmission. It's REALLY noticeable shifting from 1st to 2nd gear. I was able to get my transmission fixed for 900 bux. That wasn't even a replacement so i can imagine how much it would cost to get it replaced. The shifting will get worse. By the end of my "experience" it wouldn't shift from 1st to 2nd for about 5 minutes until i drove it around for a bit. THen it would "warm up" to the idea of shifting to 2nd gear.
A/C Problem usuallyabout 200,000 miles (specifically high pressure hose leaks and compressor clutch usually within 30,000 miles of the hose going.)
At about 250,000 miles or so the main relay goes usually at about 290,000 Torque convertor in Automatic Transmission starts to slip.. Manual tranny can't say too much there depends on how you drive . replace clutches at every 50K or at 150K depends on driver.The cat and the mufflers usually go at abot 190,000 give or take (depends how much water you drove threw). Lastly fast idle cam valve about every 120,000. As you can see this is a great car to own.
it has a problem with the second gear drum it cracks and does not fully engauge the n shifts to 3rd ..many honda owners also learn the 8 bucks a quart is the only fluid to pour in a honda..but remember 3 qaurts per drain and fill the tranny holds 7q ....it will take a case to do a drain flush...a high pressure flush will ruin a automatic tranny with alot of miles or metal deposits floating around inside..DRAIN AND FILL 3 QUARTS AT A TIME NO GASKET NEEDED ITS BUILT AND DESIGNED LIKE A MANUAL TRANNY
Consider a the rebuilding of your transmission, or the replacement with a good used one.
There are shops that can fix this for a few hundred dollars, but most will charge you a whole lot more.
Most national brand shops are quite expensive.
An honest reliable one should be a few hundred dollars cheaper than a "National " shop.
Honestly, wherever you live may determine your success here, as some locations in the US have no option but a "Name" brand.
God bless your efforts.
