Sounds like the computer that controls the transmission.....but don't just go buy one because there is a diagnostic route.I just worked on two of those earlier this year,and the computer can drive you crazy.92 is pre OBD 2 or OBD anything,codes are pulled from the car manually.Passenger side interior,front kick panel.Remove the kick panel,locate BLUE colored TWO WIRE connector.It isnt connected to anything.Take a paper clip or wire,bend in a U,insert into connector.Turn the ignition switch on,engine off.This throws the trans computer into self diagnostic mode.Count the number of times...on the dash...the "S" light flashes.This is the code number.Now you look up the code number on a code chart.If there are NO CODES,the "S" light just comes on for 2 seconds when you turn the ignition on,then the "S" light goes back out.Thats normal operation,no codes.If no codes,you are back to square one.Welcome to code diagnostics.Remove paper clip.IF,there are any codes,they must be identified on a code chart,as a diagnostic trouble code for say...the shift solenoids,is a definite solution to this problem.Honda trans's are problematic on solenoids,shift and line pressure.So,check for codes,diagnose any codes and repair them.If no codes,or codes have been repaired,and the same symptom still persists,then it's time to look at the computer,or PCM.The PCM is located either under the carpet on the passenger side front,near the firewall,or under one of the front seats.Remove the PCM,take to a clean bench,and dissasemble.Remove outer cover and look,don't touch,look for a capacitor that may have exploded.I had very similar problems on one....the gear selector indicator would indicate Park and Overdrive....AT THE SAME TIME,when actually in Overdrive,and the car would failsafe to 3rd gear.It was a bad PCM,but did not see an exploded capacitor inside that one.Good Luck...Hondas,gotta love em.

If it is an automatic tranny, i had a similar problem in a 1989 CRX with an auto tranny. Your problem could be your torque converter, You may have knocked it a 1/2in or so when you connected and bolted the motor down to the tranny, in doing so you like i said, budged the torque converter out of its appropiate place. So it may or may not be grabbing like it should.....
If this is the problem, remove the motor from the tranny, (and you might as well replace your seal while at it if you havent), adjust the converter back into place, until it grabs ahold of the tranny, you will feel it, shove it back there. Take note of how it moves and what makes it come out of place, with that in mind, REPUT the tranny back in, bolt it down. Prey thats the problem

the first common possibilty would be to check fluid level, if the fluid level is good, I would recommend changing the transaxle fluid and filter. if this does not correct the issue, a professional transmission repair person will need to diagnose for you, good luck!
