Question about 1999 Honda Civic

Open Question

I have honda Civic lxi automatic. My car has a problem with reverse gear, forward works fine. When put in reverse the car won't move for a few seconds. The transmission does sound like it has been put in (reverse) gear eventhough the car won't move. This happens less frequently when the engine is hot after a long drive. Please help

My 1998 Honda civic ex won't move but the motor


Have you just replaced the clutch? Taken out the transaxle, and put it back in? Are you sure transmission was in good condition before this? If so, review your procedure carefully to be sure you got it all back right.
Watch the slave cylinder while someone depresses clutch. You should see the little plunger move slightly out and move the clutch lever back. The lever moves the release bearing inside bell housing into contact with the pressure plate. If slave cylinder doesn't move at all, try bleeding again. The plunger has to move when clutch is engaged.
I'm not sure what you mean by "will shift but won't go into gear". You mean it's actually going into a gear position and car won't move? Or it won't go into any gear, period. As if you had no clutch?

My car wont move forward or reverse


Chances are is that the torque converter needs to be replaced. However, the transmssion on this vehicle are only serviceable by transmision shops. No regular mechanic will open up the transmission. When the torque converter fails (clutch and plates shutters to small pieces) the debri flows in the transmision thereby potentially destroying the gears and/or clogging the filter and pump. Go straight to a reputable transmission shop and let them correctly diagnose the transmission.

My 1997 Honda Civic has a few seconds delay engaging into Reverse. Forward gears have no problems but when i put it in "R" it takes like 5 seconds before engaging. Fluid level is ok.


Basically you should have the vehicle's reverse circuit pressure tested by a certified ASE Transmission Repair Shop.They will be able to tell you if there is a blockage in the cricuit, reverse shift solenoid is on its way out ,or a gearing problem even if there is a manual shift valve issue. Good luck

Tranmission after starting when shift to reverse doesn't move


Hi,
Though I'm not an expert on Hondas, I've been around a few trannies. An automatic transmission generally does not have a drain plug. The pan bolts are loosened and the transmission fluid is drained into a catch pan. A new gasket then applied to the pan and the pan then bolted back to position then new fluid added.
Are you sure of your fluid level? Sometimes a low level of fluid can cause a problem like this.
Hope this helps...
Good luck!

Automatic transmission kills engine when put into gear.


Do you know what year the 400 turbo is. It sounds like the converter is locked up. I can't remember if any of the 400's had a lock up converter but I will check.

NO REVERSE FORWARD GEARS WORK. IS THERE A BAND AJUSTMENT FOR REVERSE ?IF I PUSH IT OFF IT WORKS BUT SLIPS


I have a 2000 Honda Accord EX, it shifts normal on forward with no problem. Also when the car is cold the reverse gear works just fine, but when the car runs for about few minutes the reverse gear will not work. It will seem as if it wants to go but then if feels like its neutral.
