While merging onto the highway when my car hit 3 and 4th gear the engine seemed to "stutter/misfire" during harder acceleration. Check engine light also flashed briefly during hard acceleration. Dur


Could be a transmission problem or something as simple as bad spark plugs.
The engine is under the most load when RPM is low and you are trying to accelerate, such as when it upshifts.
You should have the computer checked for trouble codes and hopefully that will point you in the right direction to test.
If the spark plugs have more than 50,000 miles of wear you might start with replacing them.

Sounds like a transmission issue, have the car scanned for ant transmission related codes. Most transmission shops will check to make sure your transmission is working 100% free of charge. With what you have described, almost sounds like you don't have 1st or 4th gear and your transmission is running on 2nd and 3rd gear. Easy fix if the 1st-4th solenoid needs to be replaced, or the wire harness has gone bad. Start with getting your car scanned and let me know if your transmission is starting on 2nd. Good luck

I have a 1987 Accord LX 4 dr. When driving at approximately between 55 to 60 mph the transmission shifts back and forth between 3rd and 4th gear with the slightest acceleration. It seems to me it's doing...


Depends on the throttle position, there is a adjustment for that transmission. I would suggest someone who has Honda experience, like a dealer.

Probably a modulator, however check that the "bowden" cable is properly adjusted (this is the cable that does the "kickdown" and also goes to a vacum /valve.It is simple to adjust, basically with the engine turned OFF, check that the 2 pointers (like arrows) align, (one is on the cable). Being a merc it pays to have the tranny properly serviced, and its filter changed at least every 2 years though merc says 60,000k's. And the one thing that will kill a merc transmission is the WRONG oil, it has to be according to the spec sheet which is in your user manual.(lots of tranny shops use anything!)
Also check the dipstick for discolouration/and or burnt smell.

Clutch or Transmission?


Whining noise is worn gears or low on transmission fluid. It after reading your post, sorry to say but you were low on transmission fluid and your transmission needs to be replaced. You gear box has seized and every time you release the clutch even in neutral will kill your engine. The transmission shaft may have seized on the bearings in the transmission case, regardless you need a new or rebuilt transmission. Good luck friend and sorry for the bad news. Keep me posted.

Automatic Transmission Rough Shifting


From the sounds of it you need to have your transmission rebuilt, there is no quick fix for a fault in one gear. As far as the tapping noise goes quite often a oil change is all that is required to cure it.
