Question about 2003 Honda Civic
My 2003 honda civic (automatic transmission) has 150 000km and just started to stall. When I drive more that 100 km/h and reach a stop, the car stalls when I stop. It starts afterwards without any difficulty. It seems that it has a problem downshifting or can not gear to the 2nd or 3rd gear.
Its possible that your transmissions Shift Solonoids could be acting erratically, either because they themselves are faulty, or the transmission's ECU is faulty, or maybe even the wiring between the two is somewhat faulty.
However it is also possible that your transmission's Speed Governor is holding too much pressure and doesn't realize it needs to downshift when you start slowing down.
Thirdly it is also possible that your Torque-Converter lockup may be siezed, or the wiring feeding it may be faulty.
Transmission repairs are usually somewhat pricey, and difficult to pinpoint, and fix, and I'm sorry to say that most of these causes to your problem really can't be checked without pulling the transmission out of the car, and disassembling it to see what the problem is.
