Question about 1987 Honda Accord
I have a 1987 Honda accord with Automatic Transmission that seems to Jolt into 2nd gear, but more so when braking and downshifting to 2nd. The car seems to "clunk" or "jolt". As the car warms up, the upshift jolt is not as noticeable, but car still clunks when braking close to or around 2nd. Shoudl I be worried about the transmission? Thanks
Hi, its best you get this looked at soon as possible the chances are it could just be that you need the fluid topping up and will need checking for any leaks.
The problem is if it gets to bad then replacing an auto box is very expensive and is hard to do so its best you get it looked at before it gets beyond repair.
Taking it into a garage will be your best option as they will have a special tool for testing the pressure in the auto box and also the fluid level.
If it has got to bad and cant be solved by fluid alone then the cheapest option would be to get a reconditioned box and getting this fitted as a new one will cost a fortune.
Hope this is some help to you let me know how you get on or if you have any questions ok
