Is it a manual or automatic...if its a manual you probably forgot to hook up the shift linkage..if its a manual..you probably didnt put the shifter cable from the shifter on top right, so itll pull the gears when you if in and out on to or back and forth..look and see if the cable has too much slack..that hooks up to the transmission(automatic)....

My 1990 honda accord for some time has had the s(green) light blinking off and on, had it is solid S green and it seems as it won't shift gears, I don't have power like before? what happened?


The flashing s light means a transmission problem. The transmission computer is under the carpet on passenger side under where you put your feet. Pull down the carpet to see the diagnostic light. Turn on the key to count the flashes to get the code. Pulll a list of codes from the internet.
If your trans shifts properly if you manually shift it thru the gears, going from D1, D2 D3 but feels like it is starting in second when in drive at a stop, the computer is probably the issue, and can be repaired or exchanged for a good computer, lots of companies do this ,find 1 on the internet.

My gears are not shift


You will need to check the automatic transmission fluid level to make sure it is full. Allow the engine to get warm and then open the hood and pull the transmission dipstick out. Wipe it off with a rag and then stick it back into the fill hole. Verify that your fluid level is up to the line. If it is low, add Honda ATF fluid to bring the level up. If your car is a manual transmission, you will need to get underneath the car and then open up the metal plug. Use a large ratchet with a breaker bar and remove the plug. Grab some gear oil with a handpump attached and then pump new fluid into the hole until it starts to run out. After it starts to run out, quickly seal up the hole and retighten your plug. The shift control solenoid externally mounted on the transmission can also fail and cause your Civic to not shift. Replacing the shift solenoid and flushing the transmission with genuine Honda automatic transmission fluid may eliminate this problem. A broken internal spring can cause the same issue. If the shift control solenoid does not repair the problem, the transmission may need to be replaced.

My 1997 Honda Civic has a few seconds delay engaging into Reverse. Forward gears have no problems but when i put it in "R" it takes like 5 seconds before engaging. Fluid level is ok.


Basically you should have the vehicle's reverse circuit pressure tested by a certified ASE Transmission Repair Shop.They will be able to tell you if there is a blockage in the cricuit, reverse shift solenoid is on its way out ,or a gearing problem even if there is a manual shift valve issue. Good luck

Hard Shifting 1997 5 Speed Honda Civic Manual Transmission


if its manual transmission, when moving in any gear try stepping on the gas pedal, does the engine feels like its running away? if it does it maybe the clutch lining is expended expensive job.
If not you have to check the clutch fluid level or a leak in the master cylinder (at the foot pedal) assembly or in the slave(clutch lever actuator) the clutch actuator may not be traveling (pushing) sufficiently to give you an adequate clutch separation in other words you are trying to shift the gears with little or no clutch at all.
There is an overhaul kit that you can buy (cheap) for the master or the slave. easy to do really just remove, disassemble, replace the rubber seals and cups, reinstall, bleed the air out.
