Question about 2000 Honda Accord
I have a 2000 Accord 4cyl automatic. It has over 194,000 and has had all maintenance done on it as scheduled. Lately it has had a problem getting into first gear. From a stop, when you attempt to accelerate the engine RPM will raise to approx 1200 rpm and then it will drop into gear with a thud and the vehicle moves. The D4 light has never flashed to my knowledge, the check engine light is not on, and I am getting no codes. I had a retired Acura mechanic (a friend of a friend) check it out and he says the tranny needs replaced. I did change the fluid twice in an attempt to flush as much of the old fluid out as possible and to check for burnt and/or visual contamination. I found niether. The belief at this point is that the clutch pack that controls first gear probably is slipping and the tranny replace is the correct action. I am willing to do that since this car is in great shape; however, should I check anything else out before I do so?
Hello mew2149...Honda had a recall on your transmission for several failures, the one you describe being among them. If you have 194k with no problems then you are one of few. Honda extended warranty to help owners absorb the cost. http://world.honda.com/news/2002/4020920.html A good transmission shop will be able to evaluate your problem better with pressure tests. The torque converter could be bypassing fluid, pump weak, clutch pack worn...etc. Good luck...i hope this helps.
