Question about 1996 Honda Accord
Is the OD lamp acting up> is the CEL lamp on, driving???????????
old car, most 96 have long since , given up the ghost.
stops in 1st gear?
some times. (common) the oil (ATF) gets hot (normal) and when hot
it is more thin, and when more thin, finds leaks inside better.
what can happen is pump pressure is marginal and hot fails.
and pressure inside drops and transmission fails to shift.
did you run the scanner to see if THE A/T has thrown DTC codes?
why not get the A/.T a full service, most are never done.
and will be full of junk inside due to zero service. (this full flush is good on cars every 50k, but if ignored for 300k , the flush makes it worse)
but do pull the codes first.
the FSM covers that.
It has full on car testing , read that too.
Does the A/T fail (hot) and stick in1st gear
(the stall test in the FSM pass?>)?
the stall test, is with all brakes hard set.
and you do a hot engine/trans , WOT, for 5 seconds max. (RTM)
RTM means read the manual, its documented 100% this.
WOT is wide open throttle (short time)
then you look at RPM (engine)
and see how high it goes, if too low, the engine is weak
if too high the transmission is slipping and will now burn up if driven
do not ignore slipping or doom happens faster.
the next test is the on car,. tranny test ports for pump pressure.
that too, is in the FSM for first checks)
The A/T is complex. read the book, or get help

Sounds like the car is just slipping out of gear. Keep your hand on the shifter when you back up next time. See if you can feel the shifter move when the car comes out of gear. If the shifter moves up when it happens keep pressure on the shifter holding it back like you dont want it to move forward. And of course if the shifter moves back when it comes out of gear, put forward pressure on the shifter so it doesnt slip out. This might work for now but but i know i wouldnt want to spen 700 for that ****. Let me know how it goes.

you need to replace clutch pack for that gear can be ordered seperately from parts store or dealer if you want to save money call peach street auto recycling at 1800-365-2341 for a warrantied used one! also might be time for change trans filter and fluid filter could be slightly clogged but I lean towards clutch pack I replace these alot on Hondas

the first common possibilty would be to check fluid level, if the fluid level is good, I would recommend changing the transaxle fluid and filter. if this does not correct the issue, a professional transmission repair person will need to diagnose for you, good luck!

fluid lever should be full if it is / smell the fluid , is it smell burnt if not you may have a bad axle with 1 axle broke the car will not move .check the half axles called cv joints transmission apply's power to the tire that spins always so if 1 is broke it will spin and do nothing / doesnt move . it might not even be the transmission . good luck
