Question about 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,

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.
