Question about Honda Accord

1 Answer

I have a 1992 Honda Accord auto. I thought I had a miss in the engine. I had a mech. sujest the torque converter he said it has a 2 stage t/c. The car is making more of a hesitation feeling (could be jerking). When I unplugged the lock up switch the problem gets better. Also when the t/c should lock up you can not feel, hear or see a drop in engine RPM. I have been advised to do a trans flush but may dislodge slug and make it worse. How much would a dealer charge for this. Is there an additive I could use. Any sujestions.THANKS

Dealer charge is $75/Hr US (depending on location.)
Listed as 1.5hrs. in repair estimate manual.

Additives cause more problems, and never are the EASY fix as advertised.

Most shops will not touch a transmission if it has over 180,000 mi.

Thanks for using FixYa!!

P0740 honda odyssey


P0740 Honda - Transmission Lock-Up Control System Fault Possible causes
- Low transmission fluid level
- Dirty transmission fluid
- Faulty torque converter clutch solenoid valve
- Torque converter clutch solenoid valve harness is open or shorted
- Torque converter clutch solenoid valve circuit poor electrical connection

Tech notes
On some Honda vehicles the P0740 code may be set by an overheating torque converter problem which is caused by an insufficient flow to the torque converter release circuit.

P0740 Honda Description
The torque converter clutch solenoid valve is activated, with the gear in D4, by the Transmission Control Module (TCM) in response to signals sent from the vehicle speed and the Engine Control Module (ECM). Lock-up piston operation will then be controlled. When the torque converter clutch solenoid valve is activated, the torque converter lockup clutch will engage creating a 1 to 1 RPM ratio between the transmission input shaft and the rotational speed of the torque converter.
Lock-up operation, however, is prohibited when A/T fluid temperature is too low.
When the accelerator pedal is depressed (less than 2/8) in lock-up condition, the engine speed should not change abruptly. If there is a big jump in engine speed, there is no lock-up.

Need a torque converter for a 1992 Jeep Briarwood...any ideas? How much to get it fixed,what does it involve?


Depends on how much time you got?You have to drop the driveline.Slide the driveline out.Also have a 2 1/2 ton jack to hold the tranny. 6 to 8 bolts from the engine housing to tranny. Torgue converters range from 500 to 1000 dollars. Have a mech do it and it could cost anywhere from 1000 to 2500 .

2000 Honda Accord Check Engine light on p0740


YOU HAVE A TORQUE CONVERTER PROBLEM. TORQUE CONVERTER CONTROL CIRCUIT MALFUNCTION CODES CAN COME FROM ELECTRICLE TO INTERNAL MALFUNCTION. IF YOU START EXPERIENCING A HARD SHIFT OR FREE SPIN TO HARD SHIFT DON'T BE SURPRISED. TRY CHANGING FLUID. THIS MAY HELP. HONDA WOULD HAVE REPLACED TRANS IF UNDER 105 k FOR FREE. IF YOU HAVE TO REPLACE TRANS. BUY ONE FROM HONDA, 3 YR WARRANTY AND AS CHEAP AS A REBUILT TRANS. HAVE A QUALIFIED PERSON INSTALL, YOU WILL SAVE ABOUT $500 DOING IT THIS WAY. GOOD LUCK

Just want to know how much oil going in the tranny of a honda accord 1992 automatic


The automatic trans on your 1992 Honda Accord holds a total of 6.4 quarts, and 2.5 quarts on a filter replacement, so the torque converter and the rest of the trans retains about 4 quarts.

Probably a bad torque converter lock up solenoid...

Try starting it in neutral, and putting it in drive without your foot on the brake (I know the car will take off in quite a hurry if it doesn't stall but it's an easy way to check for this)

If it doesn't stall, apply the brakes, and if it stalls then, it definitely is a bad lockup.

I don't know if you're familiar with the torque converter function/operation, but where it is a fluid (liquid) and not solid coupling with the engine, lockup is used at certain road speeds/engine RPMs to get rid of the power loss that always occurs between the pump and the turbine of the torque converter. It mechanically (through transmission oil pressure) locks both parts of the converter together so it then acts like the engine crankshaft is bolted right to the input shaft of the automatic transmission.

But, as you might imagine, this system has to unlock the converter when you apply the brakes for the same reason applying brakes without the clutch on a manual transmission stalls the engine.

Bad lockup solenoid will cause this to happen... The converter stays in lockup and as soon as you try to stop the vehicle, you also stop (stall) the engine.

It also might be something else but I'd say I'm about 90% sure on this one.
