It's usually the dip stick that is yellow. Be sure to bring the car up to operating temperature before checking/adding fluid. Almost sounds like a bad IAC valve or a vacuum leak.

'90 Acura legend tranny slipping?


doesn't need a rebuild
try an oil change for the transmission as it indicates dirty oil and sticking balves
should have been changed at the 60000 miles mark or 120,000miles
run fault codes to check for torque converter clutch servo/ solenoid problem

Auto transmission sticks in high gear


check the condition of the oil and see whether you have filter in the gear box. Do a flush after renew the oil and filter and clean also the oil cooler of the gear box.On renewing the filter and oil also add a WYNN'S Auto transmission treatment additive.

I have a 2003 Acura TL with 60,000 miles and the transmission went out on Monday, June 1, 2009. The recall in a letter June 2004 was to install an Oil Jet Kit, which the Honda/Acura headquarters says it...


these cars have major tranny issues and acura is not helpful at all,my sincere advice to you is to sell the car asap!!! i owned one for 2 yrs and paid to have the transmission fixed twice,within that 2 yrs,cost me close to $6000. i will never buy another acura again.

Tranny slips & wont shift past 2nd gear


Ok, you will need to first check the fluid level in this transmission. if the trans is sealed, you will need to take to the dealer for a fluid check. assuming that the fluid level is proper, this will usually be caused by a faulty transmission control module and faulty shift solenoids as well. these devices are located on and inside the trans and i recommend testing each device for flaws.


Most slips are the result of gear ware but, the solenoids and TCM will cuse this issue as well.

Yes it does matter. Remember your filter is a screen that the oil flows over. If it is clogged it will not allow clean oil past it and to some extent will be like you are low on oil or high if the oil can not flow.
Change the filter and look for metal deposits in both the fluid and the filter. Minute shavings like sand or smaller is normal as long as there is not a lot. If you see a lot or see big particles then gears have been ground and you are looking at trouble. Get fixed early. Otherwise if filter is clean and fluid is fine and tranny still does this they make additives for tranny's to help with slipping. I use tranny medic. Follow the directions as you will need to drain some of the fluid out. Also do not add to your tranny unless you have met or exceeded the mileage specs on the bottle of the tranny medic. Hope this helped.
