Gear shifting problems in Honda Prelude with Automatic transmission only when gearbox is cold

Hello I have problems with my gearbox. When engine and gearbox are cold the gearshifting is hard and uncomfortable. And also gear change from 1st to 2nd and 2nd to 3rd is late and durates little bit longer than when gearbox is warm. And also that gear change is hard. When gearbox gets normal temperature gear change is smooth. Can anybody help me solute my problems? I have also problem with direction change. When I change it from P to D4 and D4 to R and invert it shakes car body. I hope I have problem with Solenoids Valves. But which one and where is it located in my gearbox. My gearbox has code M6HA Best regards

Has anyone change the transmission fluid and used anything other than Honda ATF-Z1. If so, have the fluid/filter changed in this car and use only Honda Fluid. This is the only fluid that you can use in a Honda. Even if you have used the correct fluid an fluid/filter change may help. If that is not the case then I suggest you seek out a trusted professional.

WHERE IS THE GEARBOX OIL LOCATED IN OPEL CORSA 1.45 LITE 2004. WHERE DOES SOMEONE PUT IT IN.


That car has reported problems with the gearshift linkage, rather than the actual gearbox. There's certainly no harm in giving it an oil change though. The gearbox has a drain plug on the rear bottom edge, and a filler plug on the side of the casting about 1/2 way along and 1/2 way up. The correct level is the bottom of the filler hole when cold. It's a heck of a messy job though unless you have done it before.

Advice required re: Manual Gearbox Problem - Clutch drag symptoms when changing from 1st to 2nd gear.


problems with a clutch system will result in grating first gear or reverse gear as the input shaft is still being turned by the engine. 2nd gear is syncro operated so any mismatching of gear speeds will be overcome by the syncro ring of the gears. By double de clutching you state that the problem is eased somewhat and this indicates that the gear box is at fault ( shaft bearings, syncro rings, gear teeth ) hard movement of the gear lever would indicate failed gear cable ,linkage or gear lever pivot problems. What you describe is a gear box fault. I would take it back and tell them to fix it or exchange it . Keep all records of conversations and dealings as you may have to get legal help to have the shop full their warranty agreement. Time to remove ,repair and replace a gear box would not exceed 12 hours in an accredited shop

Hello, My 1994 BMW 740i is not shifting into 5th gear on automatic mode, it happens after it being driven for while and is warm, when cold it shifts gear till 5th gear normally, when it gets stuck on 4th...


IMO it's more likely that you have the wrong grade of ATF. It's very important to have the correct grade. The following site shows this:
http://www.nairaland.com/1364064/automatic-gearbox-problems
each car manufacturer has recommended grades of Automatic Transmission Fluid, BMW is no exception. the following website for BMWs may bring you more accurate data:
http://www.nairaland.com/1364064/automatic-gearbox-problems
Apparently CTSC is the supplier for BMWs via the web.
Generally auto gearboxes have drain plugs and filler plugs to enable oil change in routine maintenance. But I would definately go back to the garage where you had the last service and ask politely about the grade of ATF used, before considering an 'oil change'.
Good Luck

Automatic Transmition Shifting Problem when Engine is cold


The auto was notorious for clutch pack failure. Tolerances were tight in the inner workings and this caused inadequate oil flow and poor cooling. Sooner or later the auto transmissions fail. You could have the transmission rebuilt but that will cost a bit to do it so it wont break again. I might recomend going back to honda atf and changing the fluid again. If that does not work try an additive oil for the transmission. I had some sucess with the recomend product.

last resort, have it swapped to a manual transmission. This is a cheap alternative as f series transmissions from the accord can bolt up to the h22 and can be found cheap at the expense of higher gear ratios.

2005 Corolla's manual trasmission shifts gears, it clunks


hi mate , sounds like the SPIGOT bearing its a little bearing that allows the gearbox to be at a different seed than the engine flywheel and if this is in bad condition it will take the gearbox front shaft to a higher speed than comfortable for gearshift , in the meantime when you go for 1st or reverse gear just engage a gear like 4th without taking your foot off the clutch and then go for 1st or reverse, this will stop the gearbox spining long enough for a smooth shif, oNLY USE THIS METHOD WHILE STaTIONARY and see a professional when you get time.
