Your transmission is slipping. Check the fluid to make sure it is full. If not bring it up to full and see if the problem persists. If it does you probably have a major problem~make a note of whether it does it worse when cold or at running temperature, if you experience any shudder when changing gears climbing hills etc to determine possible faults.

My 1998 Honda civic ex won't move but the motor


Have you just replaced the clutch? Taken out the transaxle, and put it back in? Are you sure transmission was in good condition before this? If so, review your procedure carefully to be sure you got it all back right.
Watch the slave cylinder while someone depresses clutch. You should see the little plunger move slightly out and move the clutch lever back. The lever moves the release bearing inside bell housing into contact with the pressure plate. If slave cylinder doesn't move at all, try bleeding again. The plunger has to move when clutch is engaged.
I'm not sure what you mean by "will shift but won't go into gear". You mean it's actually going into a gear position and car won't move? Or it won't go into any gear, period. As if you had no clutch?

Gear does not engage first thing on mornings, engine revs and then jumps into gear. Car has to warm up for approx 5 min or more for gear to engage normally..

Rebuilding 1995 honda civic transmission


Did you make sure that the tork converter was all the way forward first if not then you will need to take the transmission back out and make sure that the converter has either automatic trany fluid in it or 184/85 gear oil depending on whether or not you have automatic trasmission or manual fill it up until you can put your finger in it and then rotate converter clock wise and it should slip into place before putting trasmission back into car and if after doing that and you still are having trouble take it to a transmission shop to have them do it for you.

Acceleration lazy in 2nd gear


Try chaecking the tranny fluid to make sure it's at optimal level. After that if it still has issues, Try getting your clutch and gear plates checked. If it's an automatic have your Torque converter checked for poor connection.
