SOURCE: 92 Honda Accord, 5 speed, hard shifting into first & second gear.

First thing to do,try to pump your clutch before you shift into 1st gear then if you feel makes better, most probably you have problem with your hydraulic clutch system, check the clutch line if there is an evidence of fluid leaking or it could be internal leak.

Second thing to do, check your transmission oil, may be it' s too old or you use a thick oil thats why when cold its hard to shift then when the engine rich the normal temperature(warm) the oil become thin and the shifting will smooth. Remember the very old oil become thicken and the purity is gone and can cause of hard shifting. in this regards i suggest you to change the transmission oil and check the used oil if there is small peace of metals, then you are in big trouble,

Sounds like your tranny fluid level is too low. Check tranny fluid level on dip stick when engine is warmed up and running.

SOURCE: when cold transmission shifts thru all gears, but

If it shifts normally and then it warms up and goes backwards OK and the check enigine light works and isn't on while driving the trans has the right fluild and it's not low then the trans has bad troble. If the check engine light is on find and fix the reason Speed sensers Theres 3 leaks burnt fluild correct and see if its fixed the engine needs to run right and hit the right temperture as it runs. otherwise an expensivew rebuild is next or a used transmission.

Not shifting


Any transmission trouble code will put the trans in second gear
and it won\'t shift.
Key on-off-on-off-on without starting the engine will illuminate
the check engine light .It will flash out the codes.Should see a 55
code ,5 flashes,a pause then 5 more. Any codes other than 12 and
55 need recorded for further diagnnosis.
I was thinking that turning the key on and opening the throttle wide
open 4 times within 5 seconds (engine off)clears tranny codes,not sure about that tho. You might try it then drive it and see if it shifts,although
as soon as the malfunction happens again it will go back into limp mode.
Tranny slipping or a slow shift or converter lock up malfunction along
with many other things will trigger this.

Transmission Question


It sounds to me like the transmission is starting to fail. As the clutches inside the transmission wear the clutch pack gains additional clearance. Your pressures in the transmission will be higher with cold oil so it has a tendency to build a bit of extra pressure, but it's also slower in flowing through the transmission. This results in a harder hitting first gear. As the transmission warms up, it will reduce the viscosity of the oil and work fine. Cold weather kills automatic transmissions. Let it warm up before driving it or it won't last long. It will require an overhaul soon.

My 1997 ford taurus transmission slips when it shifts to second


this is caused by a piston in the transmission that has a crack in it once it warms up the crack seals and operates normally.being cold the crack opens up allowing fluid to flow past it. take to trans shop as soon as you can, will be minimum repair if it has not caused further damage in the transmission.

Auto transmission shifting to soon


Depending on what engine & transmission you have on that, there may be an adjustment. take a look at your throttle linkage for a cable running to transmission. It should be adjustable.
