1998 Honda Accord Transmission Problem

My car won't shift out of first gear. Before it was slipping but not it won't shift at all. I got it home from driving around the block and it barely made it up the driveway...like it wasn't in gear. I've been having some problems with it...have to let it run and warm up about 10 minutes or else it will slip in 1st gear. When you come to a stop it kind of jerks forward when it finally realizes I'm at a complete stop. Other problems I had that I just fixed was the car would shut off completely as I was driving down the street. Replace the main power relay and fixed that! Now I'm on to this transmission problem. Someone told me it could be something in the computer...switch, modual(?), or relay. Any help would be appreciated!!!

These models are known for transmission failure...check carcomplaints.com. As for the slipping, your transmission will need replacement or need to be rebuilt. This will cost you around $1000-$3500, very costly!! Hopefully this helps

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.

Automatic Transmission shifting problems.


i had the same thing...It's the transmission. It's REALLY noticeable shifting from 1st to 2nd gear. I was able to get my transmission fixed for 900 bux. That wasn't even a replacement so i can imagine how much it would cost to get it replaced. The shifting will get worse. By the end of my "experience" it wouldn't shift from 1st to 2nd for about 5 minutes until i drove it around for a bit. THen it would "warm up" to the idea of shifting to 2nd gear.

Car shifts hard (up & down), especially shifting to reverse.


that delayed reaction may be the transmission slipping. with those many miles it could be the transmission going bad

Recently had the transmission on my 1998 accord rebuilt. Now, in the morning, it shifts hard into second and slips into third for about 5 to 8 minutes and then it shifts normally for the rest of the day....


hmm.. well a cold shift issue ....remember heat expands all things so most likley there was an error with your repair i would take it back to who serviced it asap before your warranty runs out....good luck

96 honda accord ex transmission shift problem transmission does not slip stop at light leave light transmission shift find no problems next stop and start again shift 1 st 2 nd when it shift to third gear...


the first common possibilty would be to check fluid level, if the fluid level is good, I would recommend changing the transaxle fluid and filter. if this does not correct the issue, a professional transmission repair person will need to diagnose for you, good luck!
