The proper amount of fluid may not have been put back in or the wrong type. check the fluid level and then take it to a parts store and they will let you use a scanner to pull the code and they will translate it and tell you exactly what the problem is. It may be unrelated to transmission. Either way, you dont want to ignore the warning.

C/E light on for 1 code P0741, changed TCC solenoid, trans fluid, filter why would the transmission stop going into gear after previously shifting beautifully with no slipping or any issues at all.


Just because you installed a new part, do not assume it can't be bad. This happens alot with aftermarket parts. When you change just a minor part and a problem develops, good idea to double check both your work and the new parts.

What would cause my transmision to drop to a lower gear between 50 to 62 mph


your friends comments are good advice, but first did you check the trans fluid level when you checked the condition etc of the fluid ? as low fluid could cause these symtoms,if the level is ok i'd then get the OBD codes read as this will show what sensor/switch may be faulty ie the speed sensor mentioned by your friend but by doing the OBD you will have a diagnostic result,keep me posted

PCM make check every now and then . But engine has to meet certain condition. like example ,engine temp,engine speed, engine rpm, and the load on engine and so on

CHECK TRANSMISSION FLUID LEVEL FIRST BUT IT SOUND LIKE YOU NEED A FLUID AND FILTER CHANGE IF TRANSMISSION FILTER STOPPED UP TRANSMISSION PUMP CAN DRAW FLUID THROUGH CLOGGED FILTER.WHEN ENGINE AND TRANSMISSION GET HOT FLUID WILL GET HOT AND THIN ENOUGH TRAVEL THROUGH FILTER SO CAR CAN SHIFT INTO OVER DRIVE.DO A FLUID AND FILTER CHANGE SEE WHAT HAPPENS.

Transmission is slipping


Check trans fluid level. Also smell the fluid, does it smell burnt? If so you will need a complete rebuild. You don't say how many miles are on the car. Have a trans shop check the pressure reading. Have the trans oil and filter changed. It should be done every 36000 miles. If the car has over 100,000 miles on it, it's is not a good idea to change the fluid due to internal leakage which will cause more slippage and a total failure of the transmission. It might be time for a trans rebuild.

Trans bangs into gear on acceleration, feels like 2nd to 3rd gear. I have 98K on this honda. Trans fluid was never changed. Checked trans fluid it is in spec, bangs into gear hot or cold. Also check engine...


In all probability, the transmission fluid has stopped doing its work. You should have changed ATF fluid and filter about 60k miles ago. Auto transmission on 1998-2002 Accords are notoriously weak. ( i own one). I would venture to say that you have abused the tranny beyond its possibilities. If D light is flashing, transmission computer has detected a problem. Change tranny oil and filter to see if you can save it but outlook is not good.
