Question about 1992 Honda Accord

1 Answer

Hello, I have a 1992 Honda Accord with trany problems. When i start the car it drives fine. If it has to downshift it just stops doing anytiing at all i have to stop in the middle of the road and put it in park then turn the key all the way off. once i restart it and put it in drive it works fine again untill it has to downshift again (aka stop at a light, turn a corner or go up a hill). Now when I try to get codes it give me nothing at all check eng and D4 light both come on when I turn the key on and go back off after about 3 secs. if anyone has any help it would be awsome thx.

Your downshift linkage is probably sticking, or broken

    i agree, and this is only happening when you down shift? could there be a wire or something that's in the linkage, but i assume its a cable not a bar, what happens if you shift it manually?

My 1992 honda accord was running fine then the transmission started acting funny now it will run fine for about 2 miles then it will lose rpm's you have to shut the car off use the key to override the...

You should not loose rpms, if anything the rpms should rise and car no go,the shifter problem may be a bad brake light switch or fuse but has nothing to do with the preformance of the trany, if you loose rpms then this sounds like an engine problem like its loose fuel due to fuelpump or spark, i would have this problem checked before any trany work is done . hope this helps.

1992 honda accord ex D4 light problem its tricky

Hello there:
good question. what i would have to tell you is to have the car checked again to make sure that you get the same code than i would see if there is any warranty on this if not you will have to have a repair shop perform the repairs You might be able to get the part from autozone or cragen that will save you some money there
best regards mike

1992 honda accord stop running in middle of driving

When you turn the key to start, the engine cranks over? You must check for spark and fuel, if one is missing, the car won't run. Pull a spark plug, with plug wire connected and plug on a metal surface of the engine, have someone turn the key to start, while you watch for spark at the plug. It is easiest to see spark with car out of direct or bright light. If you have spark, attempt to start several times, pull a spark plug and check for evidence of fuel (wet) on plug. Let me know what you find, we can then continue.
