Question about 1999 Honda Accord
I am an owner of 1999 Honda Accord LX with 2.3l engine type F23A. Because of recent automatictransmission failure, I ordered a used automatic transmission for my Accord. Instead,I received transmission (model M6HA) for 97-01 Honda Prelude with 2.2lengine type H22A. The merchant insists that both transmissions arefully interchangeable, but I noticed several differences between themthat made me concerned, especially lack of 3rd Gear Pressure Switch onPrelude transmission that is present on Accord transmission.
Are both transmissions indeed interchangeable?
Can I install the 97-01 Prelude automatic transmission (model M6HA) on 99 Accord with 2.3l engine and expect it to work fine?
I would really appreciate your honest, expert opinion in this matter.
Wrong ! The h22a trans will bolt up and work far better than the accord trans. The luxe teams is geared much better. I did an Auto to manual swap on my 99 lude because I was building and wasting automat trans. 2 in 10.000 miles. At first I had an accord trans and the car was slow. As soon as I got the life trans on it was night and day. Lude trans is the way t go it was also cheaper to do the manual swap than it was to jus replace the auto trans.

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
