Shifting high rpm


These transmissions are very sensitive to fluid type. If the trans fluid is not Honda specific then drain and refill with Honda fluid. The "jerk" may be transmission related but could also be the rear engine mount or another engine/transmission mount. The rear mount is hydraulically operated. They are often bad and are not cheap. Be sure all mounts are secure, unbroken and that the rubber portions are not cracked from age or weather.

have you tried changing the transmission fluid? a new transmission fluid may ease up the shifting. it really trips when you have a fried transmission fluid.

With normal acceleration the 1st to second shift point should be around 2500-3000 rpm. Most of your shifts under moderate acceleration will take place at this same point or when there a light load on the transmission. Under hard acceleration the RPMs will climp higher due to increased power needs and the computer will shift when less power is needed or the RPMs climb to an unsafe speed say5000-6000rpms (depending on where yours redlines). Also going up a steep hill will raise the RPMs higher and goind down a hill will cause a faster shift at lower RPMs. These can always be altered by an individual owner by adjusting shift points, using performance parts and if you have problems (low tranny fluid/trans issues). Your trans RPMS are fine and will vary depening on how your foot accelerates. The shift pattern should be the same every time you drive slow/medium/fast/, look for changes in those patterns you will also catch a problem early.
