Question about 1997 Honda Civic
1998 honda civic dx 4cyl non-vtec automatic trans. The trans shudders upon takeoff in first gear (but not second) Shudder is worse with higher loads (when taking off quickly) but non existant when you take off slowly. The car is bone stock, absolutely no mods. Changed the fluid completely 3 times with ATF from honda specifically for this trans. No filter to speak of. Any input/feedback would be greatly appreciated.
It sounds like the plant and sun gears are starting to wear that could be your problem. An transmission expert will probably have to look at the trany.
