Question about 1998 Honda Accord

Hey there, Ive got a 4 banger 98 accord with a

Hey there, Ive got a 4 banger 98 accord with a few transmissions changed out so far along with a few engines. The car will start and when put into drive the D4 lights and blinks green. It will drive forward but hesitates and sometimes the engine just dies. Ive bought a new filter (tranny) and fluid, along with the 2 solenoids for it. Not sure if its worth messing with if the tranny is just trashed and needs a new one. Im gonna start tearing into it soon, I guess... Its all i know how to do. But any advice or transmission diagrams / how to check for codes manually without having to put a computer on would be great. Thanks

This is a TCM (tranny brain) operated, A/T
so scan it, in this old car , it either scans with the PCM or
has its own blink codes, the TCM.
D4 means, TCM is Unhappy, please scan me for lastest news !
the engine too, is bad. but id fix that first because the tranny brain
uses,. 4 engine sensors to run'
so scan the PCM (engine brain) first. fix that first.

alldata.com has all this.. every word every step.
why not read that.?
connect scan tool $9 tools work, and scan the PCM. (ask)
get all DTCs (errorrs) and most them,, here ill also lookup
how to scan your old TCM now.
here is lots for free books on this car.
http://hondatech.info/downloads/Auto/Manuals/Accord/

the PCM when scanned will report 10 unique DTC errors
for the transmission.
and VSS, ECT, TPS, and CKP sensors must be good or
the tranny will fault.

SOURCE: 1992 honda accord ex D4 light problem its tricky

Hello there:
good question. what i would have to tell you is to have the car checked again to make sure that you get the same code than i would see if there is any warranty on this if not you will have to have a repair shop perform the repairs You might be able to get the part from autozone or cragen that will save you some money there
best regards mike

SOURCE: My D4 light is blinking

The blinking D4 light indicates a transmission problem. If someone installed the trans and engine for you, bring it back to them to determine what the problem is, as it should be under some type of warranty hopefully. If you did the swap yourself, I would scan for codes (free service at parts stores) to see if any come up. Last, you could try disconnecting the neg. battery cable for about 10 minutes, reconnect, which should reset the computer and the light should go off. If it comes back on, there is some kind of problem still.

Where is the knock sensor located on the 98 Isuzu Rodeo 2,2 L 4 cyl engine


knock sensor
2.2L 4 banger, most are on side of engine block.
ill look for your.
does the PCM scans tell you its bad? that be first.
its just a microphone, and can be fooled
a bad valve train can make noise and fool it.
the knock sensor has 2 wire,(few things do there)
one wire is yellow, other is green. (clue 2) this usually nails it.
my online isuzu books sux a bit, zero locator.s
but guess what, 3rd google search.
and is where most are, on 4 bangers.
id use a stethoscope ($4) to listen to see if engine has internal noises first, (not ping) but valve train or piston slap, or rod knocks.
why not post symptoms and not just hunts....????

e: subaru legacy transmission dipstick Transmission dip stick is behind the engine in front of driver side firewall. Move a few hoses out of the way, look down and you'll see it has a yellow top.
Other side (passenger) lower down yet, again move a few hoses aside, yellow top handle, you'll find the shorter differential dip stick.
In either case, if your gaze reaches the ground, you've gone too far.

it all depends on the person who owned it before you an how you take care of the car it could run for 1000000 or longer if you change the oil every 3,000 and keep up with the service and dont beat the heck out of it as far as the tranmission goes check the fluid level often the shift issue come from low fluids also make sure you have the transmission fliud filliter changed along with the fluids

What mileage or duration should I change the transmission oil of my 1999 Honda accord (HONDA ACCORD 1999)


My Accord V6 '99 has over 215,000. You can use synthetic transmission oil if its zr1 compatible. I change mine every 60,000 or so. Its 3 qts for the v6. The nissan maximas are the ones that have transmissions that generally dont last past 120,000 miles. Why do you still see many 98 and 99 accords still on the road Carlos?
If yours went at 70,000 than you need to buy a haynes manual and keep up with the maintenance on your car. By the way. Honda Accords are notorious for running fine after 200,000 miles. The parts are easy access and if you use a cheap obd2 scanner you can zero in on any problem with the car.

1999 Accord Automatic Transmission issue


im so sorry to say that Honda has a bad transmission line in the 98-02 accord models.. there were severe recalls on this very matter..I only got rid of my 99 accord V6 because the shop who changed my motor mounts crushed my transmission line and blamed it on me..if you had motor mounts or timing done or serpentine belt(i forgot if it has both or just 1),then check to see if transmission line is crushed it can be seen right underneath the battery..
