    Here are some of the most common problems:

    • Incorrect transmission fluid (cost: $50-60) - most common problem! (even in 2010)

    • Computer needs retraining (try this as soon as you’ve changed the fluid)

    • Solenoid pack (cost: about $60-$160 plus labor. Might be clogged and fixable.)

    • Ground strap broken/missing - may be misdiagnosed as needing a new transmission and/or computer.

    • Clogged hydraulic “brain” ($0 to $150)

    • Bad input sensor (common) - “Can be seen on scan tool screen as input rpm —if it’s 0, replace the sensor.”

    • Computer firmware needs upgrade (Chrysler dealer should do this for free but might run up to $200)

    • Incorrect filter used in last fluid change

    • Loose electrical connection

    • Torque converter (see the bump shift section)

    • Gear selector issues

    Hope helps.

What you need to do is find an independent transmission shop who has a good reputation for that kind of work. I know of one or two where I live in the southern suburbs of Chicago. You may want to find one where you are at yelp or other community boards.

Civic 92,auto gear box problem

There are no filters to change. If the fluid is brown or black in the transmission you should have it changed. If you have over or near 200k miles on your car you should consider getting a good used one with low miles, but should you call around and see if you can get a free inspection at a transmission shop first.
