If the car only goes into reverse, then apparently something caused the transmission to get jammed.

I cant help you here, but my opinion is to start looking for someone to rebuild that puppy.

What would stop a transmission from shifting ?


On a newer car this is a mode the transmission goes into when there is a bad problem with the transmission. It will usually go into 2nd gear where you can drive it safely to get it checked out but will not shift into any other forward gears.

Who care about the Service soon light,since you stated you are a 1993 you are OBD 1,this is not a bad thing but if you pulled a code it would probable read 02 lean bank 1, The real problem is the whole transmission,Wont rev higher in other word its slipping,need to rev higher just to start moving ,well its slipping the solution is a rebuilt transmission,or a better car.

Check engine light came on today honda accord v6 2003 at 97k miles. car makes a thump sound when put into reverse hot or cold. sometimes when i turn and accelerate i can reproduce this feeling moving...


Take your car to a mechanic or your local auto parts superstore and have them read/scan the codes for the reason for the check engine light. A good place to start.

Check the transmission fluid and see it's condition. Make sure it's at the proper level, the whining noise sounds like the transmission has low line pressure which would be a bad transmission pump. The "klunk" was the line pressure being high and low right now could ba a faulty transmission pressure line servo. Newer automatic transmission designs often use many pressure control solenoids, and sometimes allow the shift solenoids themselves to provide precise pressure control during shifts by romping the solenoid on and off. The shift pressure affects the shift quality (too high a pressure will result in rough shifting; too low a pressure will cause the clutches to overheat) and shift speed. Check the fuse box at the end of the dash on the driver's side and look for the transmission fuse and make sure it's not bad. You can also try resetting the ECM by placing the ignition to the run position and pulling the ECM (BATT) fuse out for 30 seconds and placing it back in and starting the jimmy. It may stall but let it and don't touch anything. Just restart the engine and everything should be like the way it came off the assembly line and hope the transmission come back to life till you can get it to a transmission shop for a proper scan. Good luck and hope this helps. keep me posted, be glad to help.
