Question about 1998 Honda Accord
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

car not changing gears and not shifting out of park mode ,it can be shifter assembly issue, or it can also be
transmission issue. Get the shifter assembly inspected with ignition OFF.
