You can but I suspect you will damage the transmission even further if you contiue to drive it that way.

I own a 1988 honda accord lxi,while driving along the hwy.my car pops out of fifth gear,i put it back in gear but there was no fifth gear. i got home and discovered i had lost reverse as well. can you help...


Go to Car-Part.com. You can look there for a used 5-speed for your '88 accord. The site is a nationwide locator of participating salvage yards, very extensive. I'm sure you could find one reasonable.

The cost of tearing down your gear box and repairing it may be prohibitive. That work usually requires a few special tools and a lot of checking tolerances.

1990 Honda Accord EX manual transmission sticks in 5th gear, if i come off an exit ramp at low speed or stop the transmission sticks in fifth gear and almost impossible to pull it out of fifth gear however...


I would check to see if the fluid is low, and replace it with Honda manual transmission fluid first. Honda manual transmissions originally used engine oil, never gear oil, then Honda came out with manual trans fluid. Either would work, but the Honda manual fluid would be better.

Rough shifting automatic transmission on Honda Accord from 1st to 2nd gear


it has a problem with the second gear drum it cracks and does not fully engauge the n shifts to 3rd ..many honda owners also learn the 8 bucks a quart is the only fluid to pour in a honda..but remember 3 qaurts per drain and fill the tranny holds 7q ....it will take a case to do a drain flush...a high pressure flush will ruin a automatic tranny with alot of miles or metal deposits floating around inside..DRAIN AND FILL 3 QUARTS AT A TIME NO GASKET NEEDED ITS BUILT AND DESIGNED LIKE A MANUAL TRANNY

Fifth gear lock-out


You should have fifth gear. There is no fifth gear lock out. Most likely it's not going into fifth gear, due to play in the shifter, or play in the linkages.

I just picked up a 87 honda accord and just want to know what gear i drive it in it has l2 d3 and d4 can you help got me confused


D4 - this gear means that all four automatic gears will be able to work (1,2,3,4)
D3 - Three gears will be able to work (1,2,3)
D2 - Two gears (1,2) - L2 means the same thing
D1 - One (low) gear (1)

For your car, drive it in d4. this means that all forward gears will work, including overdrive (4th gear). It will be fine to leave your car in this gear.
