91 honda accord automatic only goes to 2nd gear when in D4

My auto 4cyl accord will not shift gears anymore, the rpm's just keep going up and never rev down. also my speedometer hasnt been working in a year (stays at zero) and my check engine light comes on when i slow down. and i have a green 'S' light that flashes constantly. i have been told that some of these other issues may be related to the problem in changing gears. any help please??? thanks!

It could be the computer, or the speed sensor. The speed sensor will control the speedometer, and tells the transmission at what speed to shift.  

If it is the Transmission computer module (TCM/TCU) it will be located under the passenger side foot rest. Just pull the carpet back, and remove the steel panel cover using a deep 10mm socket. The TCM is usually the one on the left, but sometimes on the right. It will be the smaller of the 2 coputers. The other, is the Engine computer. When you locate the TCM, you only have to sets of wires that just snap in. Unsnap them, and you can take the cover of the TCM off with just a phillips head screw driver, and look to see if anything looks burnt out one the circuit board. If see something that looks burned, that is your problem, and will need a new one. It took me about 30 mins if that, to locate the TCM, remove it, and replace it.  

If it is the Speed Sensor, you can find one online for about $21.00 at eparts.com Best of luck to you, and hope it helps. If you have anymore questions e-mail me at uconn_huskies@yahoo.com

Automatic Transmition Shifting Problem when Engine is cold


The auto was notorious for clutch pack failure. Tolerances were tight in the inner workings and this caused inadequate oil flow and poor cooling. Sooner or later the auto transmissions fail. You could have the transmission rebuilt but that will cost a bit to do it so it wont break again. I might recomend going back to honda atf and changing the fluid again. If that does not work try an additive oil for the transmission. I had some sucess with the recomend product.

last resort, have it swapped to a manual transmission. This is a cheap alternative as f series transmissions from the accord can bolt up to the h22 and can be found cheap at the expense of higher gear ratios.

My grandson has a 1997 honda accord, 4cyl, replaced auto tranny, now will operate only in first gear when placed in D4. reverse works ok. will not shift out of 1st gear. can u help. thanks


check the instillation of the transmission shift cable, it needs to be adjusted so that the pawl on the trans case has a full range of motion-put the shifter in neutral, and manually put the pawl in the neutral position (disconnect the cable0-then connect the cable again and bolt it into position.

Slipping in and out of gears


The only thing you can check out on an auto gearbox is the liquid level.If the level is low then fill it up,also new gearbox oil can fix few things in performance.I am afraid this is everything you can do.

Larry, you really need to take it to a trasnsmission shop and find out what the trouble codes are, but it seems as though you have a burned up transmission. Thanks and good luck with your repair.
