Question about 1997 Honda Accord

97 Honda Accord SE 2.2 Transmission Problems

One day when driving my car, it just stopped, like went in neutral and would not go in gear. Got car home and it went in gear but quickly resumed to neutral and doing nothing. No weird noises or fluid leaks. Few days before this I got a code for the torque converter shift solenoid (think its a P0740)....tested solenoids and they were good.

I Decided to replace tranny with one that had less mileage and was able to do a test drive around the block, then it started doing the exact same thing as before. The only difference was a whining sound and we were told that is usually signs of torque converter going out. Now, I am about to install another transmission and I want to know if it could be something else and not the tranny....Electronically maybe? TCU or ??? If it was something like that, wouldn't it have thrown a code?

Any and ALL advice is greatly appreciated! Please help me in the direction I should be going.....Thanks so much!

You cannot use a trans from a 98...and also, i recommend replaceing the torque converter as well with the next trans u install...also, the trans u put in may have been bad as well..i suggest u replace this next one with a remanufactured trans and torque converter...here in california, there is a place called H&A transmissions that rebuild Honda and Acura trans only..they are very good and they usually can get one fairly quick...wherever u get the next one, just get a reman or rebuilt one with a warranty...u dont want to have to do it again...

350z 2004 a/t with 120k miles 3 days ago my car overheated but reached just half of the temp gauge and i stopped the car and by the time it went back to normal i turned off the engine to cool down....


I don't think overheating of the engine has much to do with the transmission, either automatic or manual. If you have an automatic transmission, did you check the fluid? Sometimes low fluid stops certain gears from changing, as the torque converter doesn't have enough fluid to pressurize the servos to engage the clutches.

Your first mistake was to listen to a parts person at Autozone and actually buy the part he or she suggested, THEY ARE NOT TRAINED TECHNICIANS! You need to take this either to the dealer or a local transmission repair shop. In Calif these parts stores can't do the testing and can't hand out advice on vehicle repair. There is a reason why a trained automotive tech makes $30.00+ per hour and they make maybe $10.00, it is called training.

3000gt transmission


Hi,
Look on a 3000GT forum (search on Google) to find out how to read the transmission codes. I bet they are stored in the transmission computer. This will tell you what needs fixed.

Also, does sound like the shifter may be out of adjustment. Maybe a cable is broken or loose.

My brothers 2000 ford ranger the fuse went out to the speed sensor. I change the speed sensor because it did not shift out of 1st gear and the speedometer stopped working. I then found out the fuse was missing in the fuse panel. My brother could not tell where the fuse went but when I put a fuse in it started shifting and the speedometer started working. everything was good. You should have a code if it is the speed sensor.

1993 honda accord se with automatic transmission. car will not start. D4 is flashing. just ran 2 days ago.


D4 flashing? this may be the neutral safty switch, theres a selector switch that connects to the shifter, this switch lets you know what gear your in and also the compuetr. this sounds like it thinks its in d4 and will not allow the car to start. this is like the car is in drive and you are trying to start it. good day.
