Question about 1999 Honda Civic

1 Answer

My daughter called and said her 1999 Honda was real slow when attempting to accelerate. She said when she went to have her oil changed they mentioned the color of the transmission fluid looked discolored. Should we get the trasmission flushed and new fluid installed?

This is not a answer but a question, Is it a automatic trans?. The hondas made for USDM seam to have trans problems with the automatics, Manuel trans work great but autos have problems, It may need a new trans just like the dodge FWD transmissions.
But you can get some more time out of it by changing the trans fluid and filter and if you need a rebuild you can get it done for near $1000.00 some shops charge over $2,500.00 just get a warranty with the rebuild that matches the factory warranty for the drivetrain when the car was purchased to make sure it was done correctly. I would recomend flushing the trans and changing the filter to " See what happens " after all it is cheaper than a rebuild and worth the chance.
It could also be a bad sensor that a code should come up thru the ECU, Or it could be a pluged catalitic converter, All of which should come up with a diagnostics test. The question is very open to possible problems you may have so first thing is to have a diagnostic test done to read the code to narrow down the problem.

My van has no power when you step on the accelerator?


Failed Transaxle most likely

When you change the fluid on an already slipping
trans & fail to diagnose how it works, you pretty put
end it & it slips worse

That is the fault of the shop that did the fluid change
They don't care & don't know that transaxle

Having once owned a trans shop & would suggest you
part with that vehicle

That Van & a couple Fords, have been the worst out there
for 30 years or more

I have a 1997 honda crv that crank slow in cold weather.


Slower cranking in cold weather is normal due to the oil being thicker and other tolerances being tighter. As long as the engine fires within 3-5 seconds I wouldn't worry about it. If it cranks REAL slow or is excessively slow to start, I'd tune it up (plugs, wires, distributor cap, etc.) and change the oil to the lowest viscosity recommended. Also, I'd have the battery tested and replaced if it shows marginal.

What mileage or duration should I change the transmission oil of my 1999 Honda accord (HONDA ACCORD 1999)


My Accord V6 '99 has over 215,000. You can use synthetic transmission oil if its zr1 compatible. I change mine every 60,000 or so. Its 3 qts for the v6. The nissan maximas are the ones that have transmissions that generally dont last past 120,000 miles. Why do you still see many 98 and 99 accords still on the road Carlos?
If yours went at 70,000 than you need to buy a haynes manual and keep up with the maintenance on your car. By the way. Honda Accords are notorious for running fine after 200,000 miles. The parts are easy access and if you use a cheap obd2 scanner you can zero in on any problem with the car.
