In my opinion..if your milage is between 75K-140K I would try and just do a drain and fill and not a full exchange. If it is over 150K DO NOT TOUCH IT!!! See the deal is is that like oil, trans fluid is a fluid that breaks down and becomes bad after a certain amount of time. ANd once you put new fluid in, it breaks away all those containments, and metal particles and could do damage. so it is solely on you if you want to try it out or not. it could fix it, it could make it worst.

I have never heard such a silly thing as to not change the fluid like that. Change it, and I am not sure, but I had an 83 Accord with an auto trans that if I remember right, was a manual trans, converted to auto, and I think I had to put gear oil in it. There was no filter I think also. Anyways, if it has a filter, change it also, and if you take off the pan, stick a good (not cheap) magnet in the bottom, if there isn't one in it all ready.

90 honda accord transmission wont shift into gears


Check your transmission fluid level first before doing anything else, and also note the color of the fluid. If it's dark then it needs to be changed. If it's low, you should do a transmission fluid change and fill it with 2.6 quarts of Hobda ATF fluid

You have transmission issues, the first thing to do is have the fluid changed in the transmission to see if that improves the hard shifting and then go from there.

Transmission is shifting hard, what could the problem be?


Modern transmissions require regular ATF fluid changes with the correct type of fluid. Of ten manufacturers require a 30,000 to 40,000 mile interval between changes. Try a fluid change to see if the hard shifting goes away. An ATF change is probably long over due.

With that mileage I would find an additive for the transmission. Ask you parts store for the bestt. I cannot mention products by name but there are additives that are quite effective. Might save you some time and give you a chance to dump the car. Do not change fluid that may be the end for sure. Now is the time when you need a little sludge in the transmission fluid. Transmission work on a Honda is not cheap.

The fluid in the transmission has to be changed along with the filter just like youe engine oil, only not as frequently. Have your transmission fluid and filter serviced and see if this helps. A qualified technician can tell from the old fluid if there is internal transmission damage.

My 93 accord shifts erratically. it drops rpm and seems like the transmission is slipping


First off, did you happen to change the fluid lately and use anything but Honda ATF-Z1. If you did that is your problem. You must use genuine Honda ATF-Z1 or shifting problems will result. Even if you did not use a non Honda fluid, I suggest you have the fluid changed and the transmission flushed. You may end up needing a transmission rebuild but it is worth trying a fluid/filter change first.

92 Honda Accord, 5 speed, hard shifting into first & second gear.


First thing to do,try to pump your clutch before you shift into 1st gear then if you feel makes better, most probably you have problem with your hydraulic clutch system, check the clutch line if there is an evidence of fluid leaking or it could be internal leak.

Second thing to do, check your transmission oil, may be it' s too old or you use a thick oil thats why when cold its hard to shift then when the engine rich the normal temperature(warm) the oil become thin and the shifting will smooth. Remember the very old oil become thicken and the purity is gone and can cause of hard shifting. in this regards i suggest you to change the transmission oil and check the used oil if there is small peace of metals, then you are in big trouble,
