87 Honda Accord LXi transmission makes a clunk/jolt when shifting

My son is looking to buy his first car. We found an 87 Honda in great condition, but when you shift from park to drive, it makes a 'clunk' noise and the car jolts and shakes some. Is this normal for an automatic transmission this old, or is it a sign that it's about to fail?

Automatic Transmission shifting problems.


i had the same thing...It's the transmission. It's REALLY noticeable shifting from 1st to 2nd gear. I was able to get my transmission fixed for 900 bux. That wasn't even a replacement so i can imagine how much it would cost to get it replaced. The shifting will get worse. By the end of my "experience" it wouldn't shift from 1st to 2nd for about 5 minutes until i drove it around for a bit. THen it would "warm up" to the idea of shifting to 2nd gear.

Car shifts hard (up & down), especially shifting to reverse.


that delayed reaction may be the transmission slipping. with those many miles it could be the transmission going bad

start be looking for broken motor mounts if there broken this can happen look for rips and tares in the rubber in side the mounts you may need to put the car in the air to check the rear mount. if you find one that is broken replace it and see if that solves your clunk.

No head lights 87 honda accord lxi


Do your high beams work? The problem could be your turn signal/high beam switch. If the lights come on when you use the high beams replace this switch. It is available at most autoparts stores. Not a diffucult repair probably under two hours.

You have a bit of metal or clutch material in a fluid passage, you will need to pull the trans valve body and have it hot tanked, if that doesn't fix it you will need an overhaul. Good luck

1987 Honda Accord Jolts When Shifting up and down to 2nd


hi, its best you get this looked at soon as possible the chances are it could just be that you need the fluid topping up and will need checking for any leaks.
The problem is if it gets to bad then replacing an auto box is very expensive and is hard to do so its best you get it looked at before it gets beyond repair.
Taking it into a garage will be your best option as they will have a special tool for testing the pressure in the auto box and also the fluid level.
If it has got to bad and cant be solved by fluid alone then the cheapest option would be to get a reconditioned box and getting this fitted as a new one will cost a fortune.
Hope this is some help to you let me know how you get on or if you have any questions ok
