Hello,i have civic 92 reg,1,5 with auto gearbox and some time ago the gears not changing as they use to,it takes a long time for gears to change,somebody mentioned that i have to change transmision liquids filters in gear box,its that true or is there another solution to this.Thanks
There are no filters to change. If the fluid is brown or black in the transmission you should have it changed. If you have over or near 200k miles on your car you should consider getting a good used one with low miles, but should you call around and see if you can get a free inspection at a transmission shop first.

Check engine lights report faults in engine AND gear box(auto). If you have changed from an auto to manual gear box then the sensor system for the gearbox is recording a massive fault with the gearbox that you have to check out. Talk wit an accredited auto electrician as to how to neutralise the system so that the light only checks out the engine.
It's very likely to be something as simple as a loose and corroded exhaust heat shield, or something similar which is resonating as you change up on a cold engine. Once the car warms up, metal expands and will take up any loose gaps which may be allowing the noise to occur. I've had the same symptoms and cause on other cars in the past.
Take your car to an exhaust specialist where they usually will inspect your exhaust for free in the hope of finding a chargeable repair.
An internal gearbox fault would be more muffled than the noise you describe.
it sounds like there is a pin after breaking on the gear selector in your gearbox you will have to take out the gearbox and replace the pin , if your after doing to much driving on it you might have to replace the 3rd gear selector , this is only a guess because i had a 03 toyota hiace with the same problem and thats what was wrong
OK, I assume that the autobox is stuck in first and you have two possible problems. Firstly, the shift value in the shift value block is stuck thus continually selecting first gear, or the speed sensor within the auto box is seized. Both these problems is as a result of not having the gearbox oil changed as per the recommended service intervals. Firstly, identify the colour of oil on the auto tarns dip-stick - if it's black, you need to change the oil in the autobox. After you have done this, drive the car in first for a few miles to circulate the new oil and after the vehicle is at normal operating temperture, go as fast as you can in first gear. What this is doing is maximising the load on the speed sensor in the gearbox and by increasing the speed it might just unseaze and change into the other gears. The other thing to do is a stall test, but I suggest that you have a Honda Dealer do this. Best regards, Scottech
