Question about 1998 Honda Accord

1 Answer

Fellow Mechanic's ...TH-700R4 Four speed automatic transmission. I havewhat I believe to be a 1988 700R4. For the life of me, I cant seem todecipher GM's screwy method of identifying this hunk o'lead. The 8character designation located on the passenger side rear ''lip'' justabove the pan is: 8MZMO12H.....I think the eight designates 1988, the Hmight be reference to the 350 C.I. smallblock...the rest, I havnt thefoggiest idea. This thing also has the MD8 stamp on the passenger side,just behind the bell housing, which I believe indicates after 1987...??While fairly adept at most things mechanical, Ive never so much as evenseen the inside of these things beyond removing the drain the pan. Myintention is to install it behind a 305 in a 1986 Suburban 1/2 ton 2WD.The one that came out of it is fried. I found this one on craigslist,from a camaro man who I believe wanted to stuff it behind a fresh 350in a 70' camaro. Its supposed to be low miles....has sat for 5-7 yearsin his garage. He says he believes the man that had it before left itoutside and may have been exposed to water...?? Upon dropping the pan,there was evidence of water mixed with the tranny fluid, but looking itover, I dont get the sense that it was taking on water, like submergedor water being present throughout. More like, what ever water had foundits way inside via the dipstick tube or TV opening, would be about thesize of it. Guessing, I would say there was a total of maybe 6oz. ofthe fluid/water mixture in the bottom of the pan. 80% of that beingoil.I remind myself, however, that at some point, someone must havedropped the pan to drain the fluid....otherwise, it would still be inthere. Evident in the pan ( or the lack of ) metal particles present,leads me to wonder what was in the original used oil. So, what I haveis a 700r4 that is (all things considered) in really nice condition.The dirt and road grime on the housing befits one with lowmiles...perhaps a rebuild as evidenced by the light blue Chevroletengine paint on the pan. And the pan itself has some hicky's on itsuggesting it has been dragged around a bit. The pan gasket, I think iscork with rubber lining, but thinner which looks more like factory thanaftermarket....and professionally torqued,as it is amazingly even andvoid of your typical shade tree snafu's....Anywhoo...anyone who mightbe able to help me out, it would be appreciated! Any additional info Ican provide, please let me know...Patrick....theroadisalover

    Lesabre, I say old boy, You see, we know its a 700R4. The pan, as well as other notable features have helped us establish that. Im trying to make certain which year I have, and what kind of car it came out of. The posting, above, shows a Honda Accord...NOT THE RIGHT CAR. NOT EVEN THE RIGHT CAR MAKER! I drive a Chevy Suburban...I don't even know why its listed as a Honda.
    Be that as it may, the 700R4 is a four speed overdrive transmission built for passenger cars and trucks starting in 1982. It is the successor to the Turbo-Hydramatic 400 + overdrive. GM had ( dont know if they have corrected it ) a crazy labeling scheme, making it quite confusing to identify by its source code. This actually tells you what kind of car it came in. With this info in hand, i'll be able to determine if its compatible with an 1986 Surburban, if I can use "my torque converter out of the old 700 I pulled out. Different wiring schemes for converter lockup etc, etc. Going by the code I listed in my first post, trying to verify if the one I have will work for my application. Any drivetrain specialist out there scoping me out ?......Thanks....... Theroad

The shap and the number of pan bolts usually tell you what you have for a trany.Your local auto parts store should have a chart with all the various pan and bolt patterns to help identify your transmition.

I have a 1988 Corvette with a 700R4, not wanting to shift from 1st. to 2nd. unless I leave my foot off the gas for it to shift. Contact mac1212sr@aol.com


Transmissions have "synchros" that adjust the speed when shifting from one gear to the next, because the engine's RPMs, while correct for, say, 1st gear, are too high to shift to 2nd gear.

If you're really careful, and an expert driver, you can shift a manual transmission from one gear to the next without using the clutch at all.


However, you seem to have a transmission problem with the 1-2 synchros.

Will a 1988 chevy scottsdale transmission enterchange with earlier model transmissions like 1983 or 1984 with 350 or 305 engines


Three different transmissions could be in either the 88 or the 83 or84. The 4 speed auto 700r4, the 9 inch tail t-350, or the 9 inch tail t-375. as long as it is the same type transmission, they will interchange. The 4 speed 700r4 has some internal internal differences between the years, but will still work. The 350 or 375 trannys are identical from that year range.

I own a 1993 GMC Sierra 1500 4x4 that has a leaking automatic transmission. It is Canadian made (not to sure if it makes a difference) with a 5.7L/350ci V8 with what I believe to be a 700r4 overdrive...


Its probably the 4L80E trans. Front seal might be possible. Sounds like torque converter to me. Does it still leak at that speed when the tranny is cold? Or just when its warm?

Transmission converter seems to lock and unlock


Hello;
You may have two problems at the same time. The speed sensor is the easiest to replace. I would check and or replace the sensor. Then if the test drive shows the lock up fluctuating, I would replace the lock up switch in the transmission. Let me know if you have questions. Hope this helps. Rate me highly, please.
Thanks;
