1987 Honda Accord

You use the term "auto box"..........Do you mean transmission? I've never heard of this expression, or part, and wanted to know if this is the transmission, or a component of the transmission. Thanks

Hi, Thanks maklean for giving advice.
sorry its been a while but ive been away for few days but im back online now and can answer any questions.

In the uk we say cars have manual gear box or auto box manual being that you change the gears using gear stick from 1 to 5 or 6 gears and auto being that the gear box does this auto this being auto gear box or trasnmision.
If you have the auto and the fluid level has got low then this will cause the transmission to over heat causing damage to the transmission.
Auto trans can be expensive to repair and its usually cheaper to get the transmission box replaced.
But before you do this you need to get the fluid checked and make sure its topped up to the maximum level this will ensure the transmission is not getting to hot and working at its normal limits.
If after doing this you still have problems then the chances are you need to get the transmission replaced.

Let me know how you get on or if you have any problems or questions ok then ill assist you the best i can.

@maklean thanks again for giving them the info as i was away for few days over the bank holiday,
Cheers mate.

Correct! the term box (by pauldonp) was used instead transmission. I agree with given solution. It is important to maintain hydraulic fluid level between marks, when engine is at operating temperature and lever at position "P".
If there are fluid leaks must be repaired.

What kind of transmission fluid do i need for honda accord 95 ex auto, they dont have dexron II available anymore? thanks


You can use the latest version of Dexron/Mercon (IV, V). All these will work just fine and not cause any damage and will mix with the old.

My 1993 Honda accord EX , the transmission quit. auto, no gears forward or reverse.


Check the fluid level. Automatic transmissions won't go into gear without enough fluid. If it's low, you've probably got a leak somewhere that you need to find.

1987 Honda Accord Jolts When Shifting up and down to 2nd


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
