This could be a computer problem, it is located under the carpet below the glove box, pull the carpet down from the firewall below the dash. If it will manually shift, but seems to start in 2nd when in drive, it is probably the computer. It can be repaired, there are lots of repair companies on line that do this.

SOURCE: 92 Accord Automatic shifting

Has anyone change the transmission fluid and used anything other than Honda ATF-Z1. If so, have the fluid/filter changed in this car and use only Honda Fluid. This is the only fluid that you can use in a Honda. Even if you have used the correct fluid an fluid/filter change may help. If that is not the case then I suggest you seek out a trusted professional.

SOURCE: clicking sound when i press the gas pedal

The clicking and popping sound like a problem with the CV joints. The best repair for this is to replace the CV half-shafts. The brake noise may or may not be related to this issue. If the noise is coming from the front, it could be that you need new brake pads, or that the rotors need to be resurfaced, or the brakes may need some other adjustment. If the noise is coming from the rear, you may need new brake shoes, or the drums need to be resurfaced, or there could be another issue. Have the brakes checked out when the CV axles are replaced.

If you need more help with these issues or if you have any more questions just let me know.

SOURCE: Gear shift stuck in park -- 2002 Honda Accord SE

Take it to the dealer to fix it for a permanent solution, but there is a quick fix when in a bind...

There is a little key space on the left side of Park, take a screwdriver and open that and then take the screwdriver and touch the pad that is about an inch down in that hole, while touching it, you can put the car into any gear.

It is your celluloid that is sticky, which sometimes happens in hot/muggy weather. You may need that replaced.

I have a 91 honda accord with an automatic trans. & when i shift into reverse it refuses to engage & makes a high pitch gear slipping grinding sound ! NOT GOOD ! ,I just replaced the transmission con

Definitely not good. The transmission is slipping internally due to worn gears and clutch packs. It will have to come out for rebuilding, IMO. Have a transmission shop check it out.
Good luck.

My 1995 honda accord strains in the first gear sometime and i was wanting to know if i could flush the transmission out to help clean the strainer or do it sound like something worst than that

You could flush the trans to get rid of any sludge, but I don't think that's the problem. Sounds like the internal bands need adjustment. It's not a very expensive job if you take it to one of those quickie trans service places, i.e., AMMCO

93 honda accord, thransmission works fine for about 10 miles. then acts like you shifted to neutral. then will work again later.

Best advice is to take to shop and get trans service/band adjustment. check fluid level and condition (foamy, milky, contamination) first; check vacuum lines in engine compartment next. Filter may need replacing...

My honda 1993 wouldnot go forward , only goes reverse gear does not shift.

A common problem with 93 Honda was the TCU unit (the brain) which is located under the passenger floor board. You can go to a salvage yard and get a used one relatively cheap, a new one is very expensive. And, this is a do-it-yourself project. If I can do it, you can.

If it just started to do what you say and you have not had any grinding sounds etc. I would try this first. Personally, I now keep a spare TCU on hand, just in case for my 93 Honda.

You are probably going to need a syncro on third gear, trans has to come out and be taken apart.

At 93 honda accord.gear slips out and in

i'm assuming this is a standard and not an automatic. if the trans pops out of gear, probably when you let off the gas, this means the bearings inside the trans are worn. you'll need a rebuild or replacement.

Honda 2004 transmission gear box

Hi sounds like a problem I was starting to have in my 04 Accord. It would shutter terribly between gears. We had changed trans. fluid every 60k miles but evidently that wasn't good enough. I was shopping for a trans when I talked to my mechanic and he recommended new fluid. We drained and refilled trans twice and now drain and refill trans pan every other oil change ( about 20k w/ synthetic). After the fluid change trans. is doin great. Don't run and go pay for a trans flush at a local shop. I worked at a very highend dealership as a service writer and trust me it is a rip. In your honda you have drain plug just drain and refill, then run, repeat. It will do the same thing just takes a little longer. I have 190k on "The 04" now and it just won't quit! Honda's Rock!
