SOURCE: 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

I'm not sure why you got that code definition. P1259 in the factory manual reads, "VTEC system malfunction". According to the manual you are supposed to reset the powertrain control module (PCM) then road test--accelerating in first gear to over 4000 rpm and hold that rpm for at least two seconds. If the code does not repeat then do the road test two more times just to be sure. If the code does repeat during the three acceleration tests, then the VTEC pressure switch and solenoid valve should be checked. If the code does not repeat during the three acceleration tests, then the system had an intermittant fault. As for the TCS light being on, I know this may sound simple but is the TCS switch off? If it is, that will cause the light to come on. The TCS light is more applicable to an ABS brake system problem. If the transmission has a fault, you should see a diagnostic code that begins with P07xx or P17xx. The green D4 drive light may also blink. Based on your symptoms of excessive shock in 1-2 upshifts, the book suggests the shift solenoid valve C could be defective, or the 2nd clutch pressure switch or the circuit could be defective, or there could be foreign material in the separator plate orifice, or seven other possible causes. I would suggest clearing the code and replacing the transmission fluid with genuine Honda fluid and then see if the code and the symptoms return.

SOURCE: '02 ACCORD 1-2 Shift Shudder,

The shift control solenoid externally mounted on the transmission can fail and causes a harsh 1-2 shift. Replacing the shift solenoid and flushisng the transmission with genuine Honda automatic transmission fluid may eliminate harsh shifting characteristics. A broken internal spring can cause the same issue. If the shift control solenoid does not repair the problem, the transmission will have to be replaced.

In both cases (CR-V and the Civic) there is a linear solinoid that can cause the problem or if not then a broken spring inside the transmission that can create the same issue. The cheapest thing to do is to replace the linear solinoid and flush the transmission. If there is no change then the transmission will need to be replaced. The spring is deep inside the transmission and would require complete disassembly for replacement, and it's ususally more cost effective to replace the transmission as a unit.

Honda has issued a bulletin on this issue. As far as I can recall it's been about 50/50 between the spring and the solinoid to repair the problem. Some customers choose to live with the issue due to the cost involved.

Hope helps.

This problem is most likely torque converter clutch shudder, did you replace the torque converter?

The Engine Control Module (ECM) uses signals from the vehicle speed sensor to detect the actual gear position (1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th or 5th gear). Then the ECM compares the actual gear with the shift schedule in the ECM memory to detect mechanical troubles of the shift solenoid valves and valve body.

Sounds like a shift solenoid. They are not too expensive and fairly easy to install. You will need to drop the pan and then you should be able to see the solenoids. But, before you do, put a scan tool on it and make certain. Good Luck
