Question about 1991 Honda Accord
Gear box is stiff when shifting from R to D etc.
Thanks for your help
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.
