Question about 1992 Honda Accord
I have had this car for 7 years and have had all maintenance done like clockwork. Suddenly I started having a problem with it going from 1st gear to 2nd gear. I can manually go down to 2nd and start in 2nd and it shifts through the other gears just fine. One mechanic told me that it was the transmission so I took it to a transmission shop. They kept it for about 5 weeks and they said that it was not the transmission...BUT they could not figure out what the problem was....any ideas??
TCM Transmission control mod. Connects to the main computer under passenger floorboard. Find one from a junk yard first, unhook battery, change out tcm, ... if it works...good luck!

A problem a lot of drivers experience is their cars won't shift from first to second gear. That could lead to number of different problems, overheating being one of them. If you think there is a problem with your transmission then the first thing you should always do is check your transmission fluid levels.
This solves a lot of transmission problems but if you still can't shift then you may need to look at your throttle cables. A faulty throttle cable that has too much slack can prevent proper shifting, or shifting at all for that matter.

the vehicle may have a electrical problem and or mechanical problem in the trans....id try replaceing the solenoids and then the entire transmision and torque converter.

it has a problem with the second gear drum it cracks and does not fully engauge the n shifts to 3rd ..many honda owners also learn the 8 bucks a quart is the only fluid to pour in a honda..but remember 3 qaurts per drain and fill the tranny holds 7q ....it will take a case to do a drain flush...a high pressure flush will ruin a automatic tranny with alot of miles or metal deposits floating around inside..DRAIN AND FILL 3 QUARTS AT A TIME NO GASKET NEEDED ITS BUILT AND DESIGNED LIKE A MANUAL TRANNY
