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...

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.

1998 Honda Accord Transmission Problem


these models are known for transmission failure...check carcomplaints.com. As for the slipping, your transmission will need replacement or need to be rebuilt. This will cost you around $1000-$3500, very costly!! Hopefully this helps

I HAVE A HONDA ACCORD 2005 THE D4 LIGHR BLINKS N GEAR JERKS


It sounds like you have one of a couple problems. First, for the D4 light to be on and flashing, there is a problem the TCM (transmission control module) is seeing. If this is a V6, these transmissions are notorious for having problems internally, and need to be rebuilt at a transmission shop, or replaced. There is also a chance that either the third or fourth gear pressure switches have gone bad they will be the black and brown switches bolted to the top of the transmission. These can also cause this light flashing to occur. I dont understand the rest of your post. If you could clarify what you mean i could try to answer you question a little better

99 Honda Accord and Prelude Transmissions Interchangeability


the trans will actually bolt up to the engine..but it will not work properly without the pressure switch plugged in to the harness... if u notice, there is a hole with no threads in the prelude trans..u couldnt even thread a 3rd gear pressure switch in the trans case..trust me ive seen it b4 at the dealer where i work.. i even went as far as installing the trans and when going back together, saw the difference when trying to plug the harness in...its not the same..i laugh about it now, but was very mad at myself at the time for assumeing the parts guy brought me the right part..the guy with the prelude was about to install my accord  trans in his prelude ...luckily i was able to stop him b4 he installed my trans in his prelude...i laugh about it now

Car stops moving in reverse gear


Sounds like the car is just slipping out of gear. Keep your hand on the shifter when you back up next time. See if you can feel the shifter move when the car comes out of gear. If the shifter moves up when it happens keep pressure on the shifter holding it back like you dont want it to move forward. And of course if the shifter moves back when it comes out of gear, put forward pressure on the shifter so it doesnt slip out. This might work for now but but i know i wouldnt want to spen 700 for that ****. Let me know how it goes.
