SOURCE: fill auto trans fluid for 1987 Honda Accord

It's located on the right front (as u sit in the car) transaxle housing, which will be below or nearly below the battery. There are 2 types of trans. dipsticks, one is a screw in type, to check the fluid, the car should be at normal operating temperature, and the engine OFF. The screw in type dipstick should be pulled out, wipe off w/ clean rag, re-insert, but DO NOT tighten. Pull up, and check level. If u tighten the dipstick to check the level u will get a false reading, you must only push "til it makes contact. When finished, tighten by hand only, don't use a wrench.
The other type is just a push in dipstick, located in the same area, it just doesn't have any threads to tighten. Make sure it is fully inserted to check, and when done. countrycurt0

Replace the transmission and sell it...These vues 2003 and 2004 with the varitrack trannies were junk you may be eligible for a class action lawsuit if you live in a state where they have filled it.

No quick fixes, once it slip the transmission is pretty well done due to damage to the clutch packs, pull the pan and see how much debris is in there, if it is allot then an overhaul is needed, I would suggest that all the shift solenoids be replaced during the fix, also make sure th connector to the tran is in good condition, no loose pins or damaged connector locks.

SOURCE: I have a 2002 Honda Accord with Auto Trans. I

i would check the transaxle fluid first, if it is fine, I would then take it and change the fluid and filter. if this does not correct it, quite possibly the transaxle is faulty, sorry, I hope that the fluid corrects it for you, thanks

My accord stalls when put in reverce


Depending on the mileage of the car I would first try a product called Trans X sold at most auto parts stores. Sounds like the converter lock-up solenoid sticking due to varnish build-up. Trans X is good for freeing up sticking solenoids in high mileage transmissions.

My 1993 honda accord lx..4 cyl. 2.2 ltr auto transmission problem


It's the "shift" solenoid on your transmission has gone bad. Get it at the junk yard for around $80.00. You want the "shift" solenoid, not the "lock-up" one.You can see it on the front of your transaxle. It has a small electrical plug attached and comes off easily. Both solenoids may be together, or you may only have one. Easy fix, but depending on the doner car, your shift points may change (engine may seem racier)

Engine speed hunts on idle. Auto trans slow shift.


The fast idle valve is inside the throttle body. Sometimes it backs out and needs turned back in (it's threaded). This will cause the loping idle.

Get transmission filter changed with new fluid. Honda does not recommend transmission flushing.

2000 Accordlx eng. light on and drive blinks yellow code p0780?


po780 is a trans hydrolic systen code
could be a shift solinoid gone bad
have an experienced mechanic replace the lock-up controlle solenoid control solenoid valve/shift controlle solenoid valve "A" assembley
and the A\T clutch pressure control solenoid valve "A"/"B" assembley
start with these two parts farily inexpensive if this doesnt solve the problem then the trans needs to be replaced really expensive
both of these parts are located on the out side of the trans

AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION GEAR SYSTEM PROBLEM


Yes,that code is a transmission code,pressure control solenoid A.On a Honda trans,there are two solenoids that control line pressure inside the trans.The two of them are made together into one assembly that Honda calls "Linear Solenoids".Most likely they are defective and need replacing,but require testing.They are mounted on the outside of the trans case,so the problem can be repaired without removing the transmission from the car.The actual diagnostic route for that trouble code involves ohms checking the wires from the vehicle computer to the solenoids.Ohms checking the solenoids,amps chekcing the solenoids,and then installing a line pressure gauge on the transmission to test the solenoids mechanically.I rebuild Honda and Acura transmissions on a regular basis,and solenoid failure is not out of the ordinary.Good luck.
