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!

forget the manual and throw it into back of garage ,now this expert ?? me only works on manuals because us spanish wouldnt give an auto box house room.Now if its not clearing properly when changing gear or its a job to get into first or reverse when stationary then its a new clutch job,some model cars have an adjustable clutch lever arm but if it gets to that stage where you have adjust it right out to get it to engage then its a new clutch time .Now hondas are not adjustable as such because they are hydraulic operated ,if it has clutch fluid then it sould work ok, but if the master cylinder is scored inside or the rubber is badly worn then could cause the problem ,get assistant to push clutch down and check movement on clutch arm ,if the arm starts to creep back when held down then the master cylinder needs changing ,but if it stays down then the clutch is worn even if it is not slipping ,the diaphragm spring clutch is going weak and the clutch plate isnt clearing ,or the clutch plate has heat distortion and its grabbing

Testimonial: "I think this is correct. I am going to check the fluids in my car, the problem might be no fluid. I have to check. Thank You"
SOURCE: automatic transmission
low transmission fluid will not effect the hand shifter performance..to check your fluid let the vehicle run untill the temp reading is in the middle then shut it off.and within 90 seconds remove the stick wipe clean reinsert the stick remove again and see where wet mark ends
