This is most ofthe related to lubrication of the cable, end bushings, and linkage at the tranny... especially at this age

You may want to disconnect the cable underhood and see if the floor shifter is mroe comfortable...

If the stiffness remains, I would suggest replacing the cable (lubrication is possible, but messy with the cable installed in the vehicle)

If your shifter move VERY freely, then likley the end bushing or linkage at the tranny - simple "maintenance" cleaning and lubrication should get you there.

IF the shifter at the tranny does NOT improve with external ceaning and lube, you may wish to flush/change your tranny fluid - many people do not perform regular changes and the position of the shifting bell-crank on the honda will allow dirt to accumulate and that shaft will bind as it passes through into the tranny.

91 accord shifts hard


You have transmission issues, the first thing to do is have the fluid changed in the transmission to see if that improves the hard shifting and then go from there.

I have a 91 honda accord with an automatic trans. & when i shift into reverse it refuses to engage & makes a high pitch gear slipping grinding sound ! NOT GOOD ! ,I just replaced the transmission con


Definitely not good. The transmission is slipping internally due to worn gears and clutch packs. It will have to come out for rebuilding, IMO. Have a transmission shop check it out.
Good luck.

The gear shift, (on the steering column) has become stiff. It still works but is stiff.


The gear change at the end out side the fire wall goes back to a x shaft and on to the side of the auto box, so take off the Gear box end and then try it,If still stiff then its due to lack of lub (oil) so lub with engine oil on all bushes and under the Steering wheel, play with it till free an easy.
Reconnect and test run.
IF its free then the problem is in the Auto-Gearbox and thats a lot more
of a problem and you either have to get it done be the Auto box shop or try it your self,and thats a shaft that goes into the valve body housing
in the pan and thats a big job,not the sort of thing you want to try
beleave me.Let me know how you get on RON

Shifting gear


the switch on the pedal is more than likely the culprit is is a nuetral type switch it will not let the shifter move if it does not register that brake is one try setting the emergency brake and see if it lets you shift it.

95 honda civic automatic will not shift into second


Hi there OK, I assume that the autobox is stuck in first and you have two possible problems. Firstly, the shift value in the shift value block is stuck thus continually selecting first gear, or the speed sensor within the auto box is seized. Both these problems is as a result of not having the gearbox oil changed as per the recommended service intervals. Firstly, identify the colour of oil on the auto tarns dip-stick - if it's black, you need to change the oil in the autobox. After you have done this, drive the car in first for a few miles to circulate the new oil and after the vehicle is at normal operating temperture, go as fast as you can in first gear. What this is doing is maximising the load on the speed sensor in the gearbox and by increasing the speed it might just unseaze and change into the other gears. The other thing to do is a stall test, but I suggest that you have a Honda Dealer do this. Best regards, Scottech
