It's hard to understand when you say it feels like a manual shift. Noise? Feel? I do know that the 87 auto trans does have a weak 1st to 2nd shift drum (as explained to me by my mechanic) that makes a grinding, elongated shift under heavy acceleration when it starts to wear. Under normal acceleration, 1st to 2nd shifts were normal (crisp, immediate). Since that day 8 years ago, I've avoided starting off to quickly, and so far have saved myself a tranny overhaul.

Were is the nutral safety switch location on 1987 honda accord manual shift


Neutral safety switch is something that only applies to automatic transmissions. A manual trans will usually have a clutch switch.

I have a 91 honda accord with an automatic trans. & when i shift into reverse it refuses to engage & makes a high pitch gear slipping grinding sound ! NOT GOOD ! ,I just replaced the transmission con


Definitely not good. The transmission is slipping internally due to worn gears and clutch packs. It will have to come out for rebuilding, IMO. Have a transmission shop check it out.
Good luck.

Trans bangs into gear on acceleration, feels like 2nd to 3rd gear. I have 98K on this honda. Trans fluid was never changed. Checked trans fluid it is in spec, bangs into gear hot or cold. Also check engine...


In all probability, the transmission fluid has stopped doing its work. You should have changed ATF fluid and filter about 60k miles ago. Auto transmission on 1998-2002 Accords are notoriously weak. ( i own one). I would venture to say that you have abused the tranny beyond its possibilities. If D light is flashing, transmission computer has detected a problem. Change tranny oil and filter to see if you can save it but outlook is not good.

1997 accord lx hard shifting, what can i do?


If it's automatic, drain the trans fluid and clean the magnetic drain bolt. Remove and clean the screens on the two solenoids on the front of the transmission. Honda does NOT recommend flushing your transmission with any solvents. Refill to the correct level according to your owner's manual.

If it's a manual transmission, change your gear oil in the transmission according to your owner's manual and hope it's not your synchros.

Honda 2004 transmission gear box


Hi sounds like a problem I was starting to have in my 04 Accord. It would shutter terribly between gears. We had changed trans. fluid every 60k miles but evidently that wasn't good enough. I was shopping for a trans when I talked to my mechanic and he recommended new fluid. We drained and refilled trans twice and now drain and refill trans pan every other oil change ( about 20k w/ synthetic). After the fluid change trans. is doin great. Don't run and go pay for a trans flush at a local shop. I worked at a very highend dealership as a service writer and trust me it is a rip. In your honda you have drain plug just drain and refill, then run, repeat. It will do the same thing just takes a little longer. I have 190k on "The 04" now and it just won't quit! Honda's Rock!

99 Honda Accord and Prelude Transmissions Interchangeability


the trans will actually bolt up to the engine..but it will not work properly without the pressure switch plugged in to the harness... if u notice, there is a hole with no threads in the prelude trans..u couldnt even thread a 3rd gear pressure switch in the trans case..trust me ive seen it b4 at the dealer where i work.. i even went as far as installing the trans and when going back together, saw the difference when trying to plug the harness in...its not the same..i laugh about it now, but was very mad at myself at the time for assumeing the parts guy brought me the right part..the guy with the prelude was about to install my accord  trans in his prelude ...luckily i was able to stop him b4 he installed my trans in his prelude...i laugh about it now

No, you'll either have to replace the transmission or get it to a trans. shop to have it fixed.

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
