SOURCE: 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,

Hi,


If the noise is only occurring when in 1st/2nd gears, then I would be leaning towards a chipped tooth in the tyranny. What you are hearing is the gears meshing with the space, creating a change in sound. This can be caused simply by not shifting properly once and grinding the gears or could simply be a weak gear and you managed to chip a tooth. If you are getting the sound in more than only 1st/2nd under hard acceleration, then I would be leaning more towards the transfer case. But then, could also be a sticky lifter or something else internal to the engine. Without hearing the noise, it is hard to say what it could be. Something even as simple as the knock sensor going out could cause something like this. But then, normally if the knock sensor is going, it will toss a code too.


Do get back to us for any further query and do not forget to accept it.


Thanks for contacting fixya.com

Transmission Question


It sounds to me like the transmission is starting to fail. As the clutches inside the transmission wear the clutch pack gains additional clearance. Your pressures in the transmission will be higher with cold oil so it has a tendency to build a bit of extra pressure, but it's also slower in flowing through the transmission. This results in a harder hitting first gear. As the transmission warms up, it will reduce the viscosity of the oil and work fine. Cold weather kills automatic transmissions. Let it warm up before driving it or it won't last long. It will require an overhaul soon.

Trans shifts very hard after 5 minutes of stop and go traffic


A reason for hard shifting could be a problem with many things with various degrees of seriousness. It could be your ATF( automatic transmission fluid) is low or broken down and old. This would cause the hardness and the reason for stop and go traffic effecting it. Another possibility is your transmission is just shot, and the timing gears inside are worn and not properly shifting at the correct RPM causing a **** during shifting.

Some possibilties, not all!

Shifting hard when transmission gets warm


Change filter and fluid and also add Lucas Transmission Additive. Usually when fluids get worn in the transmission they will cause the shift to be firmer after warm up. ]
