Generally autos love clean transmission fluid and periodic cleaning and adjusting. Suggest you drop the transmission pan and give everything a good clean and blow out followed by some nice clean trans fluid. If it smells like burnt clutch and there are black particles present the bands may need replacing. After everything is clean, and if it is still playing up, check continuity in the " sport " switch to ensure it is working properly. If switch is ok start looking for damaged wires. Happy hunting
i would check the transaxle fluid first, if it is fine, I would then take it and change the fluid and filter. if this does not correct it, quite possibly the transaxle is faulty, sorry, I hope that the fluid corrects it for you, thanks
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
you need to replace clutch pack for that gear can be ordered seperately from parts store or dealer if you want to save money call peach street auto recycling at 1800-365-2341 for a warrantied used one! also might be time for change trans filter and fluid filter could be slightly clogged but I lean towards clutch pack I replace these alot on Hondas
possibly due to low trans fluid pressure. the cooler in the radiator
may be plugged. to check, disconnect and bypass cooler with rubber line
& clamps. drive 2-3 miles. shifting OK now? install auxillary
cooler to bypass one in radiator. you can get one at auto-zone $30-$50.
may just need fluid & filter change, but more likely it's the
cooler. when they get plugged, either one, pressure drops alot.
