Question about 1987 Honda Accord
I have a 2 door Honda Accord Hatchback with extreme low mileage (98K), and overall the car drives great, but I notice when accelerating and deccelerating the car "jolts" around 2nd gear and smooths out in higher gears. Should I be concerned for the near future or is this normal for this car? Also, what could I potentially do to smooth out the shifting for the long haul, as I intend to have this car for some time? Thanks
I have a 1987 honda accord and i was wondering do i drive in D4 or D3

I have a similar problem with my auto trans making rough, elongated, grinding shifts from 1st to second under fast acceleration, but makes normal shifts when normal gas peddle is applied from a stopped position. According to my mechanic, the 1987 auto trans has a design flaw on a weak 1st-2nd, and 4th-OD shift drum that causes this problem, and can cause a total shift failure. That diagnoses was made 8 years, and 50,000 miles ago, and ever since I've merely practiced easy starts with no critical trans failure. Hope this helps some of you.

You need to change the clutch pads on the cars for a smoother drive...............
